    Alumni Awards Celebration

    The Bloomsburg University Alumni Association is excited to celebrate our 2020 Alumni Award recipients alongside their families and invited guests during the Alumni Awards Dinner on Saturday, October 10, 2020.

    This annual event celebrates the special bond between BU and it’s alumni as it brings together alumni, friends, faculty and staff members, along with the student recipients of the Alumni Legacy Scholarship and their families. The event is also an opportunity for the Alumni Association and the University to express gratitude for the service and recognize the personal and professional achievements of our distinguished alumni.

    As BU President, Bashar Hanna stated during last year’s dinner, “Lifelong friendships are made when you are a student here. You will always have a home here.”
