Alumni Profile: Gary Bradford ’88

We recently caught up with our very own Gary Bradford ’88  and had the chance to ask him about his Chi Phi experience, and where life since Penn State has taken him. Here’s what he had to say: 

Where has life taken you since you graduated? Give us a brief recap up to this point including career and family highlights. 

I have spent 30 years as a Financial Advisor with Northwestern Mutual/Serviam Financial. I have been married for 27 years to a girl I would not have met had it not been for Chi Ph and we have three awesome children who have a zest for living life like mom & dad.

What are the most important lessons you learned because of Chi Phi? 

The enduring friendships can’t be measured, and Z-pledge of allegiance. 

When you look back on your time in Chi Phi, what moments do you tend to remember most? 

Pledging, becoming a brother, and every day of the 3 years I lived in the house.

Anything else you’d like to add? 

Thanks to Andy Schultz for his unbelievable commitment to the chapter, to the house, and for making us all a little more charitable.
