Unleashing the you at BU

Alyssa Meyers

"Don’t panic. Grad school is the perfect place to make mistakes. You’re surrounded by helping professionals who want nothing more than to see you succeed! If everything hasn’t fallen into place quite yet, don’t worry too much. It will."
— Alyssa Meyers, pursuing Counseling and College Student Affairs degree

A digital twist to language learning

Bloomsburg University 175th Anniversary

Bloomsburg University is a place in which students gain much more than knowledge applicable to their future goals; they are also are provided with opportunities to apply that knowledge to real-world scenarios.

One student, Andy Rector, a digital forensics major and Chinese minor from Mifflinburg, has used the opportunities that BU has presented him with to gain new and exciting experiences on and off campus. Although minoring in Chinese was not a path that Rector had foreseen, he quickly discovered the benefits of writing and reading this particular language.

“China turns out to be one of our biggest competitors in the cyber world,” Rector says. “Knowing something about Chinese and being able to read and write (Chinese), in my mind, is a great way to interview for a job. It’s certainly a point of interest.”
