Thanks to alumni feedback from our recent Homecoming survey, changes are being implemented to encourage greater student and alumni involvement. In addition to popular events from years past, new traditions and entertainment options will be featured. Special to Homecoming 2010 will be the dedication of our new campus arena and the Puterbaugh Men’s Basketball Practice Facility, complete with tours. We are excited to present the new facilities during Homecoming and hope you will join us for this special event on Friday, October 15.
Mark your calendar for Homecoming on October 13–16, and keep an eye out for additional details throughout the summer. Homecoming updates will also be posted to bualum.org and Facebook.

Dear fellow alumni and friends,
I am especially excited to begin my term as president of the BUAA because it coincides with the organization’s new strategic plan and also involves preparations for the 2011 opening of our new alumni home — the Hayden-Clark Alumni Center.
A tremendously talented Alumni Board of Directors has been assembled, and we are looking forward to enhancing the Alumni Association’s services that connect alumni with Bradley and one another.
The BUAA is embarking on a road of change that embraces new technology and strategic alliances. The implementation of the new five-year strategic plan will match your interests with the University — developing an interactive and dynamic relationship. To strengthen our community, we will be reaching out to alumni to encourage your engagement through affinity groups and alumni networks, recruitment of prospective students, mentoring/hiring students and alums — all while celebrating our Bradley experiences and positioning our University for continued success.
Each of us has the opportunity to give back to our alma mater — our time, talent, and resources. I hope you will join me in giving back to Bradley. With all the excitement on the Hilltop these days, now is the perfect time to renew your connection with Bradley. You can find updated information at bualum.org. In the meantime, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts on the BUAA.
Once a Brave, always a Brave!
MICHELLE M. NOE ’98
