Summer bound, Allentown to Bloomsburg

Among the benefits the Act 101/Equal Opportunity Program provides is the opportunity for selected Bloomsburg University freshmen to get a jump-start on college life prior to the fall semester. As they near the end of their Act 101 summer experience Mia Medina and Francisco Rivera both agree. However, they got their first true taste of BU last year.

They were among a group of rising seniors on campus with the Bloomsburg-Allentown Partnership, an annual two-week residential program designed to excite and prepare high school students for college. Each say the partnership was a big help to them in not only getting focused for college but choosing the right fit.

“Last summer was real nice,” said Rivera, a biology/pre-medicine major. “It introduced us to the professors and others on campus who provide support to the students. It’s been great seeing those same professors and support system in place for us this summer.”

Medina, a criminal justice major, added, “From the first time I stepped foot on campus, it felt like home. I knew I would be comfortable, so seeing what it was like for two weeks made sense. I connected well with everyone last summer. It made my decision easy.”
