A Message from President Glasser

Dear Bradley friends,

I am pleased to invite you to visit the Hilltop for Homecoming 2013, October 16-19.

Homecoming festivities kick off Wednesday, October 16 with one of our oldest campus traditions, the ceremonial lighting of the “B” atop Bradley Hall. Standing 8 feet tall and 4 feet wide, the “B,” when illuminated, serves as a beacon for the campus community. It represents both the importance of tradition and the promise of the future.

Then, join us Thursday, October 17 outside the Markin Recreation Center for a rousing bonfire and pep rally. This is one of my favorite events of Homecoming week! You’ll have the chance to meet our coaching staff and get revved up for the 2013-2014 sports seasons.

On Friday, October 18, we’ll pay tribute to the remarkable woman who founded our University, Lydia Moss Bradley, at the annual Founder’s Day Convocation held at the Markin Center. It is important to each year celebrate the entrepreneurship, wisdom and community spirit of this most important pioneer. In the evening, come cheer on members of the Bradley basketball team at the Red & White Scrimmage at the Renaissance Coliseum.

This amazing week will conclude Saturday, with a host of events including the Gary R. Tippett Memorial Homecoming 5K, an ice cream social on the Alumni Quad and the Bradley Homecoming soccer game at Shea Stadium. Be sure to stay for the fireworks.

Please continue to check back for additional details and to register for any or all of our wonderful events. We hope you will join us in commemorating the University’s rich history while making new memories on campus. Go far. Go Bradley!

Warm regards,

Joanne K. Glasser
