Bradley University

Peoria, ILwww.bradley.edu
Students at Bradley University are quick to call out the merits of the institution and their satisfaction with its size and student body. Located in Illinois, the school has eight colleges and schools serving about 4,5000 undergrads. Students can choose from more than 185 undergraduate programs, including majors in ceramics, construction, game design, music business, painting, sports communication, and more. Minors, meanwhile, range from applied ergonomics to legal studies. The campus is relatively compact, so you are likely to run into fellow students and professors on a daily basis. The majority of students live on campus, and most take part in Bradley's 240-some organizations. About a third of students join Greek life. Bradley is home to the Renaissance Coliseum, where Weezer, Macklemore and Taking Back Sunday, among others, have recently performed. Looking for more action? Bradley is a mile from downtown Peoria, and Chicago is just a three-hour drive away.
