Unleashing the you at BU

"Don’t panic. Grad school is the perfect place to make mistakes. You’re surrounded by helping professionals who want nothing more than to see you succeed! If everything hasn’t fallen into place quite yet, don’t worry too much. It will."

A digital twist to language learning

Bloomsburg University 175th Anniversary

Bloomsburg University is a place in which students gain much more than knowledge applicable to their future goals; they are also are provided with opportunities to apply that knowledge to real-world scenarios.

One student, Andy Rector, a digital forensics major and Chinese minor from Mifflinburg, has used the opportunities that BU has presented him with to gain new and exciting experiences on and off campus. Although minoring in Chinese was not a path that Rector had foreseen, he quickly discovered the benefits of writing and reading this particular language.

“China turns out to be one of our biggest competitors in the cyber world,” Rector says. “Knowing something about Chinese and being able to read and write (Chinese), in my mind, is a great way to interview for a job. It’s certainly a point of interest.”

Huskies return to NCAA playoffs against Virginia State

Husky Sports

For the Huskies, the NCAA Playoffs are a familiar place — Bloomsburg is in the playoffs for the third straight season and 11th overall after recording 10 wins for the 10th time in school history. Virginia State, however, is an NCAA Playoff newcomer as the Trojans are making their first entry into the national playoffs. Both teams own run-first mentalities offensively. The Huskies rank third in the PSAC in rushing (228.7 ypg.) and 14th in PSAC passing (160.1 ypg.) while Virginia State likewise does much of its damage on the ground, ranking third in the CIAA at 178.9 ypg. on the ground and ranking next-to-last in the CIAA in passing at 176.3 ypg.
