There are 10 Bradley students selected by NBC for a 2012 internship at the Summer Olympic Games in London.

The university says NBC came to campus in April to interview more than 40 students.

The competitive internships will be three to five weeks long in either New York City or at the actual games in London.

NBC usually targets schools like Notre Dame, Syracuse, the University of Southern California and Ithaca College.

Last year President Glasser met with the network to convince them to look at Bradley students too.

The students selected are:

Elise Andert, Bridgeton, MO

Mathew DeFreitas, Metamora, IL

Elise Dismer, Alpharetta, GA

Montel Hardy, Calumet Park, IL

Justine Harris, Normal, IL

Miles Himmel, San Diego, CA

Zachary Keesee, Ransom, IL

Kevin McClelland, Berea, OH

Christopher Morgan, East St. Louis, IL
