WHAT I LIKED

The size of the campus and the student population is just perfect! It's mid sized with almost 6,000 students. I love this because there are so many resources available and everything is easily accessible. There are plenty of chanced to meet new people, but at the same time, I see familiar faces around pretty often! They also have a variety of clubs and activities so there's something for everyone. Lastly, the professors are extremely invested in the individual success of the students and are always available for assistance.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I wish the dorms would improve on a couple of things. For example, I'm vegetarian and there isn't a large variety of options in the dining halls. Also, the air conditioning is poor in my building and I cannot control it. I also wish there was a better area for socialization instead of just the student center.

WHAT I LIKED

Professors wanted to see you succeed; you got out of your education what you put into it.

WHAT I LIKED

I absolutely love Bradley! My professors are all so willing to help me succeed and I've already had a great experience here so far.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It's not a huge campus, which I personally like, but if you're looking for a bigger school this probably isn't the one for you.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

I love the size of the school. They often brag about being Mid-size, and they are right. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from one end of campus to the other which is perfect in my opinion. My social life is great, and in general, I am happy with my experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

They are currently going through some turbulence with professors in the College of Education and Health Sciences which is impacting the quality of education one can expect to receive from the program.

WHAT I LIKED

Bradley may be expensive, but they offer enough financial aid, scholarships, and grants to compete with the cheaper, public schools.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

nothing so far, but I haven't been there very long.

3.0

WHAT I LIKED

I love the professors, campus, and community life -- you'll always find your "people", and even around strangers, you'll still feel a sense of kinship.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is certainly expensive, even with scholarships, and has little options for vegan students -- currently, the only things I can eat are salads or vegetables from the "vegetarian hot bar" (A.K.A. mac and cheese, pasta with eggs, and other foods not suitable for my diet).
