The biggest thing I’ll miss about Bloomsburg is the community in the theater program. The amount of time and work put in here has shaped me to be a positive person today. Without collaborating with students through the ups and downs, I wouldn’t have made it this far.

I’m forever grateful for those who have helped me figure out who I am and who I want to be. Bloomsburg has provided me with a support system I never knew I needed and one I know I can always fall back on.

Bloomsburg has given me the opportunity to bloom. Moving away from my hometown allowed me to grow into the person I am today through all the friendships and experiences I've had these past four years. I was a shy timid freshman coming in, and now I'm loud and proud of who I am today.

I’m now more confident in myself and my capabilities than ever before because I was able to blossom here. ZIPD provided me with countless experiences and opportunities to grow as a professional, expand my confidence, and improve my networking skills. Traveling for business and representing the school at competitions, conferences, and events has broadened my horizons more than I would have imagined as a freshman.
