BLC residents eat outside at their devocation

Bradley Learning Community (BLC)

The BLC staff provided tremendous support of both my academic and personal goals; I felt truly cared for. I am so grateful for the friendships I’ve made.

Programs and Activities

The Bradley Board is your hall organization. The students that make up this group are responsible for planning all trips and events that occur in the Bradley community during the year. In the past, some of these events have included trips to Six Flags or an IMAX movie, bringing in instructors to teach activities like yoga, dance, or martial arts, and outings to sporting events such as Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks, Wisconsin Herd, and Wisconsin Timber Rattlers games.

Seminar Info

All BLC residents have the opportunity to take part in ILS 157: Bradley Roundtable Seminar. This one-credit seminar is highly recommended. It is a great way to get acclimated to the community and university, meet other residents and Peer Mentors, and form a relationship with a UW faculty member. Sections meet for an hour weekly beginning at the BLC Convocation Ceremony the day after you move to campus.

In addition to the weekly small section meetings there are also five Roundtable Dinners on various Monday nights throughout the first semester from 6-7:30 p.m. All students registered for Roundtable are required to attend these dinners with Faculty Fellows, Peer Mentors, House Fellows, and staff to listen to a variety of speakers and dine together over a delicious meal.
