Bloomsburg gets you in the classroom often and gives you experience right away. Teaching is a work of the heart, and all of BU’s professors teach you how to be the best social-emotional educators you can be in the real world by giving you real-life examples. Without Bloomsburg, I would not be the teacher I am today, which I will be forever grateful for.

Bloomsburg has strengthened and enriched my communication and leadership skills. Spanish was my first language, which BU has helped me perfect. The best part of the program is making connections with my peers and professors. Communication studies introduced to me a world I was aware of but not very familiar with. It gave me new lenses to see the world. I’ll miss BU dearly. I’ve made lifelong friends here.

Some of the best parts of my experience here were connecting with specific professors and an advisor who care for the future of students, and not just themselves. I learned more life skills and traits, such as learning to ask for help and maximizing my daily time. I have a full journey ahead of me in fulfilling my destiny in becoming a medical doctor.
