Jordan Radcliff

Jordan, a transfer student from Moraine Valley Community College, will be joining the Roosevelt community in Fall 2017.

How did you first learn about Roosevelt University? 

I learned about Roosevelt through the basketball coaching staff, and some of my friends who attend RU are involved in athletics as well.

What was the biggest factor in your choosing to attend Roosevelt?

I chose RU because of its beautiful location in downtown Chicago. It's also a great academic school that had my major, actuarial science, which a lot of other universities did not. And I found the staff at Roosevelt very helpful whenever I would visit.

What do you look forward to the most at Roosevelt?

I look forward to getting one-on-one attention from my professors, as well as getting to live and enjoy downtown for the next two years.

What advice do you give prospective students considering attending Roosevelt?

For any students on the fence, just take a visit and I guarantee you'll come. The University sells itself, and the people here make you feel even more welcome. 

"Jordan has the potential to be an outstanding ambassador for our great University. Not only is he quite the talented basketball player, but he is equally committed as a student and as a teammate. Everything he takes on, he does so with great confidence and a superb work ethic, and he has an infectious personality that enables him to bond strongly with his teammates. The future is bright for our basketball team, with Jordan joining all of our valuable returners to form a team that can be very competitive for the next few years.” Joe Griffith Head Coach, Roosevelt Men's Basketball
