Did you make a New Year's resolution to get fit in 2016? Then we have the perfect opportunity for you! We are once again offering alumni memberships to the Markin Family Student Recreation Center. The cost for a one-year alumni membership is $500 that includes a Bradley University ID. Please see in our frequently asked questions that additional membership options are now available, as well as, locker rental.
To be eligible for alumni membership to the Markin Center, you must be classified as a Bradley alumnus or alumna; the spouse of an alumnus or alumna with an active membership; you must be a donor to the University within the last year or do so prior to obtaining membership; and must agree to and sign documentation detailing policies, procedures and expectations of alumni pass holders. Violations will result in forfeiture of pass with no refund.
Membership to this facility is a privilege we are pleased to have the ability to offer Bradley alumni. Our ability to offer this service is dependent on the support of generous donors to the University. Given the increased interest in alumni memberships we must begin to enforce the policy that membership is dependent on being a donor to the University. You can choose any area of the University to Make a Gift and support of any level is greatly appreciated. Whether your gift is big or small, your involvement is appreciated by our Bradley family and students. You can make your gift at give2.bradley.edu.
If you are interested in applying for membership to the Markin Center, please complete the on-line application. Applications will also be accepted by mail at Bradley University, Alumni Relations, 1501 W. Bradley Avenue, Peoria IL 61625.
