Best Advice: As a previous prospective student, I toured different college campuses. One major draw for me to Bloomsburg University is its academic programs' impeccable reputation. The faculty/staff members are very caring here. I definitely encourage you to visit our beautiful modern campus and to come and meet our faculty/staff. Once you visit, I know BU will be a place you will love. I have lived in many different places in my life including Florida, New Mexico, Switzerland, and throughout Pennsylvania. Of all the places I lived, Bloomsburg is a place that feels like home through the caring culture of our university and local communities. There is always something to do at our university as well as positive activities in which to be involved.

Hobbies and Interests: I love traveling to different places; hockey, football, basketball, and baseball; hiking in PA/NY/NH/ME; and freshwater and ocean kayaking. I enjoy the NJ shore and different beaches in DE/MD. I also have played in an adult hockey league in Voorhees Township, NJ.
