From Bloomsburg University

Bloomsburg University was founded on the belief that opportunity is created by the people who are determined to achieve more. And that’s how we live and learn and teach today. Our students know what hard work is, and appreciate what comes from working smarter, academically and otherwise. Everyone’s here to make their lives better, so they can inspire and lift up the lives around them. We’re never afraid of the path ahead and we’re always ready to pull together. It’s one reason we’re called the Huskies. And that’s how we do it at Bloomsburg University.
