A spirited trip to Baltimore

Board of Governors Scholars BU's Office of Diversity and Retention in collaboration with the Office of Multicultural Affairs hosted a trip to Baltimore in April 6, where students and staff enjoyed an elegant afternoon on the famous Spirit of Baltimore — which offers a two-hour cruise hosting parties, birthdays and other events.

The cruise details food, entertainment and a tour of the Inner Harbor.

Afterwards, students had the opportunity to roam some of Baltimore’s finest sites and malls. Students reported having an excellent time and really enjoying themselves. Bloomsburg yet again makes it easy to “be you” at “BU.” #AcademicExcellence
