Odyssey of the Mind: Leaving their mark on the world
BU’s Odyssey of the Mind program was recently recognized as one of the best in the world competing in the annual World Final for Odyssey of the Mind, held this year at Michigan State University. Odyssey of the Mind is an international program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Teams solve problems ranging from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics, bringing their solutions to local, state and world competitions. BU placed fifth out of 847 teams representing 23 countries. #CoCurricularLearning | #HuskyUnleashed
Pettit donation enhances Redman Stadium
Fans of BU athletics will notice something new on the back of the Redman Stadium bleachers when they attend a Huskies sporting event this fall. Through a generous donation from Steph Petitt '89 a stadium banner project was completed in late April of this year. The banners feature student-athletes from sports which compete in both Redman Stadium and the adjoining Sports Stadium. In addition, the word “Huskies” is spelled out across the back of the stadium.
“My time at Bloomsburg will forever be special to me, especially the time I spent as student-athlete with the Huskies football team," said Pettit. "When this project was presented to me I knew it was something I wanted to be part of. Having the chance to increase awareness for all those student-athletes at (BU) and honor their successes, both on and off the field, was something I could not pass up.”
