Bloomsburg University continues its 175th anniversary celebration this fall with a lecture series featuring six faculty members representing each of the four colleges, as well as the university’s historical archives.
Beth Rogowsky, assistant professor of education, will kick off the lecture series with “Learning Styles Have Nothing to Do with Learning” todayk.
Bloomsburg University is again listed as one of the top 100 universities in the northern region of the country, according to U.S. News and World Report’s annual ranking of U.S. colleges and universities.
In data released this week, U.S. News lists BU as number 98 of the Best Regional Universities for the northern region, tied with Eastern, Stevenson and St. Peter’s universities and the University of New Haven. Bloomsburg is fifth among institutions in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
Best Regional Universities ranks institutions that offer a full range of undergraduate degrees and some master’s programs but few, if any, doctoral degrees. The 620 universities in the category are ranked against their peer group in one of four geographic regions – north, south, midwest and west.
Game-winning field goal gives Huskies 24-21 OT triumph
After a gloomy start to Bloomsburg University's home opener against California (PA), the skies cleared and bright sunshine welcomed the 1,740 fans who braved the elements. It was fitting, considering the finish was just as enjoyable for the No. 21 Huskies. After the Vulcans rallied in dramatic fashion to tie and force the game into overtime in the final seconds of regulation, an interception by senior defensive lineman Shawn Mitchell on the first play of overtime gave the Huskies the ball and allowed junior kicker Braden Drexler to play the role of hero, kicking the game-winning 32-yard field goal for a 24-21 victory.
