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 in the country 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. BUSVA 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.
“I can use that in my classroom!” — all teachers appreciate new concepts and ideas to use with their students. New concepts and ideas form the foundation of Bloomsburg University’s College of Education graduate programs, which offer courses that not only enhance your teaching perspective but provide research-proven concepts that work in today’s classroom and curriculum development.
These programs, which span from early childhood education and special education to school counseling and curriculum and instruction, offer distinct advantages.
Three members of the Bloomsburg University field hockey team have been honored for their play during the 2015 season by earning spots on the All-PSAC (Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference) team.

Peters, a junior, is the Huskies leading scorer this season with 16 points with a team-high seven goals, while adding two assists.
