Too many Bloomsburg University students are forced to abandon their educational dreams each year because they face financial hardships that leave them with no other options.
This growing need was identified through the It’s Personal Campaign, and resulted in BU’s creation of the It’s Personal Scholarship Fund. Support directed to this fund is applied immediately to help students who are facing financial crises continue their education at BU — students like Lexis Easley from Philadelphia, who was in danger of not returning for her sophomore year due to financial issues.
The need to help students was greeted with strong support when introduced to BU alumni in April 2016. “Now I know that I am coming back in the fall, and it is a great feeling,” Easley said this summer. “I owe that feeling to the generous donors who gave their support to help students like me.”
