A Special Message from BU Alumni Association President, Todd Argenziano '89 Regarding the COVID-19 Outbreak

Greetings Bloomsburg Alumni,

I hope this message finds you all safe and well. I’m sure that I don’t have to tell you that we are experiencing a time in history that is unprecedented. A time filled with uncertainty and unrest, but these circumstances will not last forever.

We’ve all had to make sacrifices during these trying times including our current BU students. A shift to on-line classes instead of the traditional classroom teaching approach has been an adjustment for students and faculty alike. Seniors who would be graduating in May won’t see their friends and classmates on campus until they graduate in August. Events, including Alumni events, have either been postponed or even canceled. These changes may have affected some institutions of higher education in a negative way but not our University. Bloomsburg University Huskies adapt, innovate, flourish and persevere!

I choose to look at our current situation as a time in history where we have the ability to hit the “reset button”. We’ve been given a gift. An opportunity to slow down for a brief moment to spend time with family and friends. Technology has its place, but I don’t think everyone realizes how much other people influence their lives on a daily basis until they don’t have the opportunity to interact with others each day.

No one is certain as to when things will return to normal. However, the Bloomsburg University Alumni Association will do everything in its power to help alumni and students alike get back on their feet in the wake of and during the aftermath of the current pandemic. BU Huskies take care of their own and as alumni we have a new opportunity to support and be an advocate for our alma mater. Please check www.bloomu.edu/alumni frequently for updates and suggestions on how you can help. As needed I’ll be in touch with details on how you can help as well.

Thank you all for your continued support. I wish you and your families well and please stay safe! I hope to see you soon at an upcoming alumni event. You and your families are in our prayers.

The YOU in Professional U

Mark Brehm '21

 
 
 

Professional U at BU connects students with alumni, employers, and opportunities integrating the academic experience with professional experience in “real world” settings. Through the exploration of professional development topics and experiential learning, students build skills and confidence which prepare them for personal and professional success upon graduation.

Integral to academics is student career experience, making BU distinctive in achieving our mission of preparing students for personal and professional success in an increasingly complex global environment.
Alumni play an integral role through volunteer opportunities such as alumni-student networking, hosting a student intern, recruit on-campus, participate in a career expo, or post jobs on Handshake
