It's time to begin your climb

Some see an uphill climb as a sign of struggle. Here, we see it as a sign of strength. People who can see past the easy path know how to get the job done. They answer “you can’t” with “watch me.” They work harder. Make more with what they have. And take every challenge as a new way forward.

Bloomsburg sees this and unleashes it. We see hustle as business sense. Persistence as rigor. Grit as mental toughness. Heart as emotional intelligence. Work ethic as a prerequisite for success. If you’ve got a forward focus and the spirit to back it up, BU is your place. Your onward and upward await!
