It's the little things

Lydia Jenkins

"Self-motivation shouldn’t be a choice of action, it should become a mental routine. As I slowly reach the middle of the semester, there are different commitments that come my way. Midterms are attacking one by one. Group projects are in full force. My daily schedule has now been set in stone … finally."

Student Veterans Lounge

BU once again named ‘military friendly’

Military Friendly School

Once again, Bloomsburg University has earned the title of Military Friendly School from Victory Media, publisher of GI Jobs magazine. BU welcomed 71 new military students this fall, bringing the total to 299. Military students are defined as current and former military members, their spouses and dependents who are using benefits. As a Military Friendly School, BU is ranked in the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools working to embrace military service members, veterans and spouses as students ensuring their success on campus.

To meet the needs of military students, BU provides preferred class scheduling and has established a military students lounge. The BU Student Veterans Association offers opportunities for social and educational activities and is involved in fundraisers to benefit organizations such as The Wounded Warrior Foundation and the American Red Cross.
