Alumni News | People & Events
This fall promises to be one of the most exciting periods in Bradley history — a near-record number of incoming students, new academic programs, and progress on the new Athletic Performance Arena. We also can’t forget that the Bradley University Alumni Association (BUAA) is gearing up for the biggest celebration of its existence when we break ground on the spectacular new Hayden-Clark Alumni Center on Founder’s Day, October 1.
Imagine…a place at Bradley that will always welcome you home! A place where you are enveloped by that familiar Bradley “hug” as you step through the front door — where the sights and sounds of campus days gone by bring a reminiscent smile and the promise of reliving fond memories with old friends or favorite faculty and staff.
Imagine…a beautiful Hall of Pride where Bradley’s rich history can be experienced and alumni achievements showcased to inspire future generations.
Imagine…sinking into an overstuffed chair near the fireplace in the library to thumb through an old yearbook, a former professor’s newest publication, or your freshman roommate’s first novel.
Imagine…reuniting with old friends in the alumni ballroom, and stepping out onto the magnificent veranda overlooking the new alumni quad.
Imagine…having an office for visiting alumni to use while on campus.
You can be assured that your Alumni Center will be fully equipped to continue your connection with Bradley.
Join us, along with BUAA President GLENN ROSS ’87 and Alumni Center namesakes JERRY ’59 and MARILYN KELLER HAYDEN ’61 and BOB CLARK ’67 and his wife Kathleen as we celebrate this grand beginning. Visit the Campaign’s Alumni Center page for more information about the Clarks and Haydens.
