A message from Alumni Association Board President, Jaison Williams '93
Dear Fellow Huskies,
The past few years have been really challenging for members of our Bloomsburg family. Together we endured a global health crisis, protested against racial injustice, helped communities devastated by natural disasters and much more. And recently, we began an integration with two other PASSHE schools.
Now is the time to write a new chapter for the University and create a legacy for the next generation of alumni.
The world needs leaders from all walks of life, locations and experiences. Bloomsburg instilled in us important lessons and values that have served us well. Now is the time to give back and help cultivate the next generation of leaders who will matriculate to become Bloomsburg alumni like us.
The current Alumni Association Board comprises a diverse set of leaders who share a common bond for the school, the surrounding community and each individual touched by a Husky. Each one of you is needed to achieve our noble purpose through mentoring, volunteering, philanthropy, networking, and much more. The next chapter of our University and its legacy is a responsibility we all share. I invite you to join with the Alumni Board and hundreds of other alumni to help write this chapter.
We believe opportunity belongs to those who are ready to work for it and unafraid to do something great with it.
"Remaining part of the pack" is not just a slogan, it is what we do as alumni.
Jaison Williams, ‘93
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!
