Director’s Corner

Lori Winters Fan '80Throughout the pages of this and every Bradley Hilltopics magazine, you can find reasons to celebrate the strength and success of our University, our fellow alumni, faculty, staff, and students. But these are difficult times, and we are not immune to today’s economic challenges. Employers have fewer jobs to offer our graduates, alumni face layoffs, and prospective students are postponing college decisions.

But the bonds to our alma mater remain strong, and we will weather this storm together. Alumni resources — time, talent, and treasure — are more important than ever before, and the Bradley University Alumni Association (BUAA) is committed to putting those resources to good use for the benefit of the institution, its alumni, and future alumni.

Is your company hiring interns, part- or full-time employees? Post positions, search for employees, or upload your resume free on eRecruiting (for students & new grads) or eRecruiting Alumni (for positions requiring more than three years’ experience). Contact the Smith Career Center at to sign up for upcoming career fairs, find out about additional resources, or take advantage of career testing services from the Center for Testing.

Network, network, network! Attend or host alumni events, search the Alumni Online Community, join the BUAA Facebook group, LinkedIn, or other social networking sites created for Bradley alumni and friends. Mentor current students while hosting a Dinner for Ten. Help young alumni and build your business by sponsoring a Young Alumni University event.

Bradley needs you…and perhaps you need Bradley during these challenging economic times. BUAA can provide resources, volunteer opportunities, and other ways to help your alma mater. Visit our Web site at or call 800-952-8258.
