Glancing out of my office window on the first warm days of spring, I always appreciate the beauty of Bloomsburg University’s campus.
With that beauty comes the bittersweet realization that commencement is in the very near future. We will soon say “goodbye, for now” to talented students who are setting out to create a future that is all their own. It can seem overwhelming and more than a little scary but, built on the foundation of a Bloomsburg University education, they are well prepared for the next phase of their lives.
I wish the very best to all who are receiving bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degrees this May. I am proud of their many accomplishments in the classroom, on the athletics field and in the organizations that make Bloomsburg so special and delighted by the close relationships these graduates formed with the dedicated faculty who mentored their research and supervised their internships and community service opportunities.

Bloomsburg University's baseball team kept its playoff hopes alive with a doubleheader sweep of visiting Kutztown University at Danny Litwhiler Field. The Huskies took game one by a 9-2 final and then completed the sweep with an 11-5 win in game two to improve to 23-19 overall and 10-14 in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division. The Golden Bears dropped to 19-27 overall and 9-15 in league play.
With the victories, Bloomsburg leapfrogged Kutztown and moved into a tie for fourth place - the final playoff spot in the Eastern Division - with Shippensburg in the conference standings. The Huskies will meet Shippensburg in a four-game series this Friday and Saturday while Kutztown, which is one game back, will take on the nation's top-ranked team, Millersville, next weekend.
