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!

The Husky Difference


Huskies Give Back to Community

Men’s basketball team gives back to the community

Bloomsburg University men’s basketball team doesn’t know yet if there will be an opportunity to play this coming season due to COVID-19, but that didn't stop the team from giving back to the community this month. They spent parts of two days helping at the Berwick Area YMCA Local Food Distribution handing out boxes of food to 800 families in need.

Spirit of BU
