Bradley is very welcoming. The firs time I stepped foot on campus, I knew this was the college I wanted to attend. There are so many things to do and look forward to.

After my visit to Bradley, I'd give the school an overall 9. The school has everything that I need and all of the resources that will help me in my future.
