A message from Alumni Association Board President, Felicia Ellzy '10
Hello, Bloomsburg University Alumni Family!
I hope this message finds you all healthy and thriving in these precarious times. As we welcome our new normal, we are excited to embrace the opportunities for growth and prosperity within our alumni community. Bloomsburg is fortunate enough to have an ever-growing population of alumni who are ready, willing, and able to serve.
The longevity of the BU Alumni Association is to be admired by all institutions. For 150 years the alumni family has shown a consistent devotion of time, talents, and treasures in service of the BU community. Countless lives have been enhanced because of the BU Alumni Association, which speaks to the dedication of the alumni family. Our alumni donors and volunteers consider their efforts to serve the Bloomsburg community a labor of love and that is what makes our alumni family special.
The philanthropy on behalf of the BU Alumni Association is unmatched! It is my hope that we not only continue to grow as an association; but that we continue to flourish while serving every student. The Alumni Board of Directors is dedicated to celebrating diverse students and alumni through programming and volunteer efforts. The commitment to the BU community will undoubtedly produce a vast number of alumni who will continue the legacy for the next 150 years!
It's a great honor to serve as the President of the Alumni Association and look forward to our continued evolvement and perseverance. Happy Anniversary Bloomsburg University Alumni Association!
Felicia Ellzy, M.Ed c/o ‘10/’11
Remaining Part of the Pack
On June 22, 1871, the Bloomsburg University Alumni Association was formed to keep the bonds among alumni and our alma mater strong. And while the last century and a half has delivered challenges to Huskies everywhere, we have preserved the life-changing experiences and relationships formed at BU, while working to ensure current students are as successful as they have been since the school was founded in 1839.
Here’s to the next 150 years of grit, loyalty, and excellence! Go Huskies!
