PEORIA, Ill. -- More national recognition for Bradley University.

Bradley has once again been featured in The Princeton Review's annual guide of best colleges in the nation.

This year's edition of "The Best 378 Colleges" was released this week and highlights Bradley for providing students with a hands-on learning environment.

The study ranks Bradley's athletics and recreation facilities among the top 20 in the nation.

Bradley University President Joanne Glasser said she is thrilled with the designation.

University Officials said only 15 percent of all four-year colleges receive this distinction each year and Bradley has regularly been included on the list.
