Submit a Story Idea

The Office of Marketing and Communications welcomes your suggestions for stories. We want to hear about Huskies who exemplify BU's tradition of academic excellence and passion for learning and life through their work, their leadership, their service to the community and in other ways.

Criteria for story submissions to Bloomsburg: The University Magazine are:

  • Articles are an upbeat mixture of interesting and compelling stories that showcase alumni success, both professional and personal achievements; BU's outstanding faculty; and remarkable student activities.
  • Features are told through the people involved and must have a current news hook.
  • Story ideas come from a variety of sources including faculty, staff, alumni, friends, colleagues, public relations representatives, news clippings, submissions to the alumni online community and, on rare occasion, the subject himself or herself.
  • A special effort is made to share the stories of alumni under 40.

Magazine Timeline

The magazine is published three times a year: Winter (Feb. 1), Spring (May 1) and Fall (Sept. 1). Deadlines for content are: Winter (Oct. 30), Spring (Jan. 31) and Fall (May 31).
