For the past 20 years, the Department of Civil Engineering and Construction at Bradley University hosts the yearly Bridge-Pal competition, a balsa-bridge-building contest open to area middle and high school students and designed to "foster an interest in engineering among area middle and high school students and help (Bradley ECE) students understand the value of good citizenship and service". As part of the contest, students (in groups of up to four) design their own bridge to meet specific criteria, meet with a Bradley CEC student to discuss their design and perform a computerized stress analysis of it, and then construct it over a period of 3 months.

A number of procedures are in place in order to ensure that families receive accurate information about school closing due to inclement weather. We understand that our decision to open or close school in bad weather has a significant effect on families. Therefore, we would like to remind all parents that once we know about a change in school opening, the primary source of communication is the school website. Please refer to the information below for helpful reminders about school closing.
