| Bradley is a unique university, to say the least. As an engineering student, I am constantly comparing Bradley to other universities, like Purdue, UIUC, and Marquette, and have found that Bradley has something that those places lack: a sense of family. Cheesy, I know, but that sense of family is something that immense state universities can never offer, but is something that is essential to a successful educational environment. The faculty truly cares about your success, and is willing to help you work towards your future. Sure, it isn't Harvard, but the teachers make it just as challenging as the big public schools. Peoria without a car is a boring wasteland, but there is plenty to get involved in on campus. The main reason that I chose Bradley was because of the MONEY! I'm paying less right now than I would be at Midwestern public universities! If you have a decent head on your shoulders they'll throw a ton of money at you to get you to come here, and it is definitely WORTH IT! So if you want to have faculty that speak English, never have a T.A., and have an overall great educational experience, there is no better place than Bradley. |

| I absolutely love Bradley. I would recommend it to anyone who asked me about the university. I honestly think that your experience is what you make of it. If you don't go and make new friends and experience everything there is to offer, then I don't believe you will have the same type of experience I have had so far. I'm only going into my second semester, but I still have had the time of my life and wouldn't change any of my decisions. Greek life is huge on campus, yet if you decide against joining it's not a big deal. It isn't like high school in that if you aren't Greek you are going to be avoided or something. Basically just have an open mind and make the best of it! |

| This is a great school on a academic level. Great classes and teachers ( at least in my department ) were all experienced and for the most part want to help. |
Campus life is pretty good. I think its a lot tougher now to have fun till your 21 since they no long have calling out for the greeks and the under 21 bars no longer exist. But Peoria is a town where you can drunk at the bars for under $20 ( good luck doing that in Chicago ).
I was reading another review and they were correct about the apparel of the student body. Almost all of the girls wear sweat pants and hoodies. Not the most attractive campus but fortunately there is a community college about twice the size across the river where they take a little more time on appearance than in education lol jk. Great social life and you don't have to be in the Greek community to have fun. I wasn't involved with the Greek world and still had a great time. Just grow some balls and go into the party.
Good school for financial aid as well. Bradley might be priced higher than others at the start but if you had a decent GPA in high schoolOverall this is a great school for almost every major. Good social life and Bradley is updating almost the entire campus ( brand new rec center, i had to lift in the basement of Hausler which is a hot, smelly, sweat box) so good news for incoming students.
