Maggie Anthony, OWL Student Assistant

Hello everyone! I am a senior Speech Pathology and Audiology major with a minor in Special Education! My hometown is Mechanicsburg, PA and I love being with family and friends!

At BU, I am Orientation's Student Assistant. Before becoming the SA, I worked as an Orientation Workshop Leader (OWL) and was also the secretary for the OWL organization executive board. Now, I work closely with the OWLs, executive board, graduate assistant, and the amazing office staff to do my best to keep this organization as incredible as I have known it to be since I moved in as an incoming first-year student. I love using my organizational skills and passion for Orientation to prepare the new Huskies with the best experience as possible. I work in the Orientation office year-round helping prepare for Orientation days and assisting with everything that goes on with the OWLs organization.

I am also involved in the Bloomsburg University Honors Program, the National Student Speech Hearing and Language Association, and Alpha Phi Omega!

Why I chose Bloomsburg

I chose Bloomsburg because of the amazing reputation it has for my major of Speech Pathology and Audiology. The program itself is incredible as it continues to grow because of the continuous support from professors and other students.

However, once I got to BU, I realized that I totally made out on the deal with the amazing campus, great Student Commons cookies, and a community that truly feels like home.

Favorite Part about Orientation

My absolute favorite part of Orientation is watching relationships grow and people connect. Connections between students or students and OWLs totally make the experience for me! I also love OWL groups and being able to encourage and learn more about a smaller group of incredible new BU students!

What I wish I knew in high school

As a high school senior, I wish that I would have more fully understood the importance of simply being yourself. Although I had great friends and family around me, I did not feel as confident in myself as I do now at BU. So high school seniors out there, be yourself because you have so much to offer! Bloomsburg and the college experience is the perfect time to try new things and become the best you there is! BU AT BU! Please feel free to ask any questions you are having at all!! I am here to help!
