Class of 2020, your onward awaits

“This year, you’ve adjusted — twice to a remote learning environment — and you’ve passed this test with aplomb. With the customary grit and determination Huskies are known for, you’ve continued to persevere despite the COVID-19 related challenges, and you’ve each crossed the virtual finish line. For that I’m beyond proud of all of you.”

    President Bashar Hanna

“You’ve done the work here and are now prepared to apply your knowledge and skills to a world that needs all you have to offer. This is a big deal. Only 8% of adults earn a master’s degree, less than 2% earn a doctorate degree. Take time to reflect and enjoy this moment! As you leave Bloomsburg University, may you have confidence in your own abilities to be successful and make a difference in the world.”

    Provost Diana Rogers-Adkinson
