Bradley Learning Community

Our Mission

The mission of the Bradley Learning Community is to provide a living-learning environment for first year students that promotes a successful transition from high school to college life, encourages collaborative learning between students, faculty, and staff, and prepares students to become integrative scholars and active participants in the university community and beyond.

Understanding is Integration

The Bradley Learning Community was created to start your journey from high school to college on the right track and fully engaged in your Wisconsin Experience. Bradley is a high-energy, high-involvement, and close-knit living-learning environment that brings students fully into the "Wisconsin Experience." Bradley students can take advantage of leadership opportunities that allow them to create, fund, and run their own programs that connect them to campus and bring them into the community.

Learning is Everywhere

Most Bradley residents enroll in our one-credit, non-graded Roundtable seminar course. Roundtable is co-led by a faculty member and a former Bradley resident who provide mentoring and important contacts within the university. During spring semester residents suggest topics for unique one-credit courses such as The Nuts & Bolts of Harry Potter, Cultures and Cuisines, and Sitcoms through the Ages.

Making Connections Brings Success

Since 1995, Bradley students have historically attained higher GPAs and garnered more than their share of student awards; they've gone on to very successful post-college careers (UW-Madison's two latest Rhodes Scholars lived in Bradley!); and their relationships with faculty create connections important for graduate school and future careers.
