Building on a rich history of academic excellence as one of 14 public universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, Bloomsburg University prepares and inspires students to become dynamic and confident leaders.
The word “conquer” has taken on a new meaning for Bryan Anderson, a former U.S. Army sergeant. During his service in the Iraq War, it meant taking down the enemy. After losing both legs and an arm as the Iraq War’s fourth triple amputee from a roadside explosive, what he had to conquer got a bit more personal.
Anderson detailed his story this fall of courage, hope and determination during his presentation, “No Turning Back,” in Bloomsburg University’s Mitrani Hall, sponsored by the Disability Advisory Committee.
As the university on the hill, Bloomsburg University overlooks the Town of Bloomsburg and is situated a few hundred yards from the community's business district with Bloomsburg Hospital across the street from a cluster of residence halls.
