Markin Center Alumni Membership

Did you make a New Year's resolution to get fit in 2015? Then we have the perfect opportunity for you! We are once again offering alumni memberships to the Markin Family Student Recreation Center, with a new bonus. Membership will now be extended to spouses of Bradley alumni, who also hold a membership, for the same rate of $500.

To be eligible for alumni membership to the Markin Center, you must be classified as a Bradley alumnus or alumna 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.

We respectfully encourage members of our Markin Center to be contributors to the University. Given our limited number of available alumni slots, active donors will be given priority for annual membership.

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.

Answers to the most frequently asked questions are as follows:

What does the $500 per year provide?

As an alumni member, you have access during building hours – there are no restrictions to any activity areas providing availability. First year membership includes a Bradley Alumni ID. There is no locker rental, and members are eligible to purchase group fitness passes and personal training sessions.

Are there any restrictions?
Alumni may not participate in intramurals or reserve spaces with the exception of the racquetball courts which have a reservation policy.

May I bring guests to the Markin Center?
Alumni members must follow the Markin Center guest-pass policy that allows members to sponsor one guest per day at a fee of $5.00. The alumni pass is an individual pass, not a family membership.

Where am I allowed to park?
A one-year, $50 parking pass is available for swipe-card access to the Main Street Parking Deck. Parking is not available anywhere else on campus, and the fee is non-refundable.

What if I join mid-year?
In case 100 memberships are not filled, alumni (meeting the above criteria) may join later in the year based upon a first come, first serve basis. Passes will run from January 1 through December 31 of each year. As with faculty/staff membership, Bradley will prorate by month if someone signs up mid-year. As with full year memberships, prorated amounts must be paid in full at time of registration.

Are refunds available?
No. If membership is ended prior to the expiration date, for any reason, the remaining balance will be processed as a gift to the University.

If you have additional questions, please call the Office of Alumni Relations at (309) 677-2240 or the Markin Family Student Recreation Center at (309) 677-2677.

We are delighted to offer our alumni use of the wonderful facilities of the Markin Center. Hope to see you there. Good luck! Go Far, Go Bradley.

Best wishes,
