Campus Town will serve as temporary home for BU College of Business

PEORIA, Ill - Bradley University is in the midst of a $100 million project that'll bring the Colleges of Engineering and Business under one roof. For the time being, the College of Business will call Campus Town its temporary home.

 

“We have approximately 70 facility staff and graduate students that will have offices here, we have four classrooms,” said Darrell Radson, Dean of the Foster College of Business. He adds, “In those four classrooms about 600 students will take classes from roughly 730 in the morning to 8 o'clock at night and the space has just worked out beautifully.”

 

Radson says students will have to utilize space in the library and surrounding buildings.

 

“We have roughly 186 classes in the College of Business for the fall. 59 of those classes will be here and 7 of our graduate classes will be down at Peoria Next. The remaining 120 will be on the main campus spread across the entire campus.

 

Radson adds people are reluctant and hesitant to change, but he's confident for the school's bright future.

 

“We're making every effort to keep our community together. We're going to have gathering spaces here and we're going to have first Friday events where people can come and see us.”

 

When the new building is completed, it will help the university reach new milestones for years to come.

 

“Our new facility should show the entire world that we are really dedicated to the finest business and engineering education.”

The new building will be called the Foster College of Business and Caterpillar College of Engineering and Technology

 

It will be the largest on Bradley’s campus and staff hopes to move in by fall of 2019
