Bradley University delays opening of new building

Local News

PEORIA, Ill. — Bradley University is pushing back the opening of its Business and Engineering Convergence Center.

The building was supposed to open in time for the start of classes at the end of August.

Now, Bradley expects to open the center midway through the fall semester.

The convergence center is phase one of a $100 million project.

It will house the engineering and business schools, which the university believes will help students long term.

“What we hear from employers is that somebody in the business world, its great for them to have a little bit of an understanding of the engineering world. And somebody working in engineering, its good for them to have concepts of business,” said director of public relationships, Renee Charles.

Students will start the fall semester in just a few weeks and classes will be adjusted to work around the building’s delay.
