CGA Sponsored Events

The Big Event is a single day, student-run community service project sponsored and run by the Community Government Association here at Bloomsburg University.  It is the largest student run community service project on campus and gives our students the opportunity to help and assist businesses and residents of the Town of Bloomsburg and it's surrounding communities.

The Big Event

Meet the President is a CGA sponsored event provides a platform for the students of BU to get to know, and interact with the University President.  The event allows students to talk one-on-one with the University President in a comfortable setting.  In addition to the wonderful opportunity to speak candidly with the President, there are often free giveaways, raffles and food items up for grabs by those who attend.

This event typically occurs in the fall on the Quad/SSC Patio.

This CGA sponsored event was originally created as a "day of dialogue about racism in our community".  The event provides an opportunity to bring the students of Bloomsburg University and the local townspeople together.  Sitting down together everyone is able to discuss the topic of racism in a safe and accepting setting.  It's a great way for students, faculty/staff and townspeople to come together to continue the process of breaking down the terminology surrounding racism and work towards a better understanding of racism itself.  This event typically has speakers from various backgrounds, as well as welcomes participant conversations.
