Q: What college are you planning on going to?

A: “Bradley University in Peoria.”

Q:Were applications confusing?

A: “No not really, they were pretty self-explanatory. The hardest part was writing my admissions essay and waiting to hear back on my acceptance.”

Q: What are the dorms like? Shared bathrooms? Laundry?

A: “The dorms aren’t huge, but that’s normal. The layout of the dorms is really cool though, and it varies by room. The bathrooms are shared by floor. Also, the residence buildings each have their own laundry room where you use your on-campus money to do your laundry.”


Q: Are you required to stay in a dorm freshman year?

A: “Yeah, they’re based on your living situation (on campus, off campus, faculty).”
