Alumni Awards

Bloomsburg University alumni, guests, and current students gathered to celebrate three fellow Huskies for their achievements and contributions to the University during the annual Alumni Awards Dinner on Saturday, May 4, 2019.

BU Alumni Association President Barbara Romano welcomed the crowd of nearly 150 to the event, expressing her gratitude for those in attendance. University President, Bashar Hanna, continued the same sentiment through his remarks, describing the special bond between BU and its alumni.

“Lifelong friendships are made when you are a student here,” remarked Hanna “You will always have a home here.”
