Gain a professional edge through the Husky Summit


From participant to a presenter, senior Sarah Bartra has worked towards becoming a professional through the annual Husky Student Leadership Summit. Bartra, a dual communication studies and biological allied health major with a Spanish minor, is an active leader as vice president of Community Government Association (CGA).


Bartra first attended the Husky Summit her sophomore year and this year she will be presenting a panel alongside her fellow CGA student leaders. Besides having the honor to present, she wants to use all the tools available from the Center for Leadership and Engagement (CLE) and the Center for Professional Development and Career Experience (CPDCE) to students at the summit.



During her experience last year, Bartra had a more workable resume and utilized the networking and professional opportunities available at the summit. Being able to mock interview with alumni in her prospective field and receive their feedback was beneficial to Bartra. Networking with student leaders and BU alumni was also helpful. Last year's keynote speaker Hoan Do, motivational speaker from American Ninja Warrior, was a memorable moment for Bartra.


"His speech was energizing," Bartra says. "It set the tone for the rest of the day."


The 11th annual Husky Student Leadership Summit is Saturday, Feb. 25, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., featuring BU alumni David Williams, president and CEO of the Make-A-Wish foundation, as the keynote speaker. To register, visit the Husky Student Leadership Summit portal on Husky Sync!

Grant made dream of California internship come true



"I was offered the internship of a lifetime. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the funds I needed to take advantage of it and thought I would have to decline the offer. The internship was in California, and I had no way to pay for travel or a place to stay while I was there. I didn’t know what to do, so I reached out to my advisor. He told me about Professional Experience Grants, which are provided by support from donors. These grants are available to students like me who need help with covering the extra costs that are often associated with professional experience opportunities. Thanks to the generosity of donors, I was able to go to California and complete the internship. This opportunity has been one of the most meaningful and beneficial experiences of my life. It has led to a part-time job working in my field of study with a full-time job offer awaiting me after graduation."  Hakeem Thomas ’17

PEG deadline for summer experiences is March 30

Professional experience helps you apply what you are learning in the classroom, establish a professional network and obtain career experience in a workplace while earning your degree. Faculty mentored research or academic internships, study abroad, creative performance activities, service projects and attending a professional conference are all considered academic career experiences. These experiences allow you to get involved in your career path, learn about the world and work alongside colleagues and faculty mentors. To help offset some of the cost of participating in these experiences, Bloomsburg University offers the Professional U Professional Experience Grant.

All full-time degree students may apply for financial assistance. Applications are accepted any time, but must be received by March 30 for Summer 2017 experiences. Find application and details at http://www.bloomu.edu/professionalu-grant
