Roommates for life

Winter break is a strange chapter in every college student’s career.

We take a sudden break in the life we just spent three months adjusting to. It’s like we finally get into our routine, the game, and then we are forced to take a half time. We look forward to seeing our families, but at the same time we feel sad about the family we’re leaving behind in Bloomsburg.

As a junior, I’ve gone through these hellos and goodbyes for two summers and three winters. I can tell you this as a fact, it never gets easier. Bloomsburg has become my home away from home, and I have all of my friends and roommates to thank for that.

A memorable learning experience

Living and Learning Communities foster a unique learning environment for students with similar majors, interests and goals living together on campus and experiencing a variety of learning opportunities in and out of the classroom.

One of the more active communities is the Frederick Douglass LLC, which regularly takes educational trips. This past fall, they traveled to Virginia to visit Belle Grove Plantation — an authentic late 18th-century plantation house and estate. For one student with a special connection to the LLC, the overnight trip left a lasting impression.

“My uncle did research and found out we were related to Frederick Douglass,” said Marqueshay Tomlinson, a freshman nursing major, admitting she really wants to learn more about her ancestry.

Winter trip gives swimming teams edge for PSACs

After the regular season ended, the Bloomsburg University women's and men's swimming teams had a combined record of 14-1. In total, these two juggernauts have outscored their opponents by a jaw-dropping 646 points.

The one loss that the women's team did suffer in late October (to rival conference foe West Chester) was the first meet of the season and, consequently, only seemed to have elevated the talented group to another level. With both teams seemingly clicking on all cylinders heading into the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Championships, one may wonder what the secret to the regular season success has been. Nevertheless, like any great team the difference is in the preparation.
