Hey, Asquith, leave students for God, Kelsey Year. So they only talk to you guys about how to pick over. Roommate up Bloomsburg. So, students, you're accepted. You're committed, you're coming, and you're suddenly felt your housing application and your dining application everything. So here's how Dok Huskies won for its getting on your computer to check out my housing, this application, you to fill out, going to Google and search my housing self service, Bloomsburg University. I Google searches a lot, so it already comes up for me on this is the link of what it looks like. Housing webs up. Women don't use you're gonna wanna click on that. And it'll have you walking with your full husky email password. Mine is memorized to my computer. So this is the screen. You should have showing up for you. Okay, Huskies ones here on the screen. You're gonna want to go to the room selection dropped on arrow and go to roommate slash sweetmeats. Since it is not spring, I cannot plan housing for next fall of 2020. So I'm just gonna show you my current housing agreement with my roommate for 2019. So here it is. it says I'm not eligible to submit a request because it's not time for me to plan for next year yet. So it's just showing me my current already assigned roommate. But if you were searching for me, there will be a search bar where you can plug in that person's email on them. Their name would show up like this. Once you've requested each other, then you would be roommate Group fully matched. Okay, so I could and did a type in my remains email, and then it matched us. And then we picked our apartment on upper campus. So this is the way that you would do that when requesting the person that you would like to live with. You would type their husky email in here and requests and accept each other from both ends. But this is just kind of what it looks like. And then once you are getting ready to start the semester about two weeks prior and the home page, you will come up to the screen that gives you your room assignment. So mine is my apartment on the upper canvas. A two bedroom apartment gives us our mailbox number, and then tells me my rooming and which number bedroom we are. So that is really helpful that it shows you that ensures you that your housing plan went through. It is confirmed before the semester starts, and that's where it's all out. So the important thing about this choosing roommates and how to do it on the housing self service application online is that you came here, roomie in tons of different ways. There's a Facebook page that during Husky decision days, Open House is a lot of times for soon to have been accepted in the mail that receives something that says, Join our Facebook page. This is where you can post a little blurb and some pictures about yourself and say, Hey, this is what I'm interested in is the type of person I am. My habits bullet blow. What? I'm like interesting hobbies, stuff you like to dio. If you're introvert extrovert type, you can kind of many people and see if you guys would get along tape thing. Let's see if you would like to be roommates, so you cannot meet them all feast. We're gonna request each other, as I showed you previously in the video and then they were roommates or someone you went to high school with. And you're both coming here to Bloomsburg. You guys can room together, request each other online so you do not get placed with a random or you can go on with the rain. A mermaid. It's a great way to meet different people, new people, and it's kind of exciting. It's kind of pretty cool. Not gonna lie. And then there's other options. Meeting them at House Key, Decision Day at Open House and saying, Wow, this person is awesome. I would love to live with them. That isn't option. There's all kinds of way for you to meet the people who were gonna be a Bloom's work with you for your very first year. But the way I show you step by step on my housing is how you would request each other to Hi, everyone. My name's Jen. I'm a tour guide with emissions. And today I'm making this video to show you guys My students at Loose Brick University chose their current major. So I know that when you come to college, thinking about choosing a major can be super difficult and kind of like a really big decision. So hopefully do this video. You guys just kind of get a little inspiration and get to see why other students chose there, Major. Okay, so I'll start off by talking about my first major. So here, Bloomsburg, I'm a speech pathology and audiology major. Um, I actually started thinking about this major when my mom suggested that I look into it if you don't ever something that I would excel at. And once I looked at it, I really fell in love with that. I really have a passion for learning about language, for helping people, um, and for working with people. So speech pathology is kind of like the perfect combination of all three of those. I get to do a fresh my life. So that sounds pretty amazing to me. But that's enough about me. Let's go see what other students at Bloomsburg had to say about their majors. I'm Julia in marketing and finance, Major. And I chose my major because I wanna work in financial management in the Air Force. I'm Kyle. I'm a marketing major, and I actually was marketing because I really want to work in advertising. Hi, I'm Dario. I'm a physics and math major here. Bloomsburg and I chose my majors because I want to know how the universe works. Hi, guys. My name is Karen. I'm a junior mass communications public relations major. And I chose a major for a lot of different reasons. One the blues were university, had a really good mass communications department. They had a really great PR department as well. I've always known I wanted to do something more on the creative side of things, and it's just really allows me to use my creative mind, um, and then have figure out in a potential career path that might lead me in the direction that I'm looking to go in. Hi. I'm John Thomas. I'm a criminal justice major. And I chose my major because I want to keep my community safe. Hi, Money. Miss Lizzie? I'm in accounting major. I choose my major of accounting because I'm good with numbers and it's a very organized subject, and I enjoy it a lot. Hi, my name's Britt. I'm an SL interpreting major. And I just made Major because I'm a little deaf girl. My summer camp. I fell in love with that language. I came back, I had some interpreters. I fell in love with the job, and now I Hey, Huskies, lead students for God. Kelsey here. So I'm gonna talk about something that's really important to all students Army, because you know food, right? So the nice thing is, we have a really easy system, the operate expression once you get here and get comfortable with it. But I'm gonna explain a little bit about how little works, what the terms mean. So the first thing is, we have meal swipes so students could have between 5 10 14 and 19 mill swipes a week, or they can block out there. Planning for the semester have 75 1 75 or 2 75 meals twice for the semester. Each of these amount of meals life comes with a stunning amount of flex dollars. So when you go to an establishment on campus and go to purchase food, you can swipe and use a meal slight. But say what you bought is too expensive to be covered by just that meal slips, So then you need extra money to pay for it. That's where the flax dollars come into play. And then we also have a system called Husky Gold, which not only pays 1 50 to Wash. 1 50 to drive for laundry on campus. It also could be used as a deputy credit card at any food establishment on campus or at the university stores. Well, students often use that to buy their books by materials or by closing the overseas store. Obviously there laundry. And then sometimes they have a stating out of money in there for their food plan. If they were gonna flex the end of semester. So how did they run out of Flex? Let's talk about it. So here's a scenario. You go into Husky loud and say, I get a sandwich and a soda and my total comes out to be $6. When I go to the cash register, the cashier is gonna ask me if I would like to use me on Flex and I'm going to say yes because I want to use my meal plan. So first he's gonna swipe to take off my meal sleight, which is the equivalent of $5.55. So obviously about meal sleep isn't gonna cover the whole $6 my sandwiches soda costs, so she's got to swipe again to take 45 cents out of my flex dollars to cover my meal for that time frame. So from there you're like, Well, okay, the flax pays for whatever meals, what doesn't cover here and there? What if you run out of flex? Flex dollars can actually be fulfilled each semester with your meals, which is everything you come. It comes with 200 to $250 in flex, and if it's more meals, trips a week, it's sometimes $300 in plex. So so you run out towards the end of the semester. You may be able to go on one and refill your flex dollars with a credit card, but keep in mind on which semester is flex dollars. Run and roll over from fall to spring, but not spring to fall. Someone, someone, time comes, your flex is gone. Whatever you do not use, it's my freshman. First semester I had $40 left in flex, so the next semester I started with $290 a flex. So then I had to use that $290 a flex or it disappears. Oftentimes, that accumulated flexing his letter and students will do anything with is donated either to the local police work, food covered or it has accumulated into scholarship funds through the university. So does give him back to the students in the community. But one thing's the students will often do is if they can't charge up and use all their flanks of the end of the semester because they have some left and don't want to go to waste. You can buy things like Mother's Days, but Mother's Day baskets. There's packages of food, candy, eateries, things like that. You could buy the Husky Lounge, but so so you don't want a refill that flex and then have a student not use it, and it goes away and goes the waist or whatever. At the end of that spring semester, we have a system called Husky Goal, so not only pays for that laundry and everything, but it also could be used in replace of flex dollars towards the end of the semester when your student runs out. So then when they go meal places an establishment and they want to use their meal swipes. But the harmony flag still say, Can I use meals and husky gold, please, because you're husky gold sees with you indefinitely as long as you're here. Bloomsburg. So then that look, money season. Your account doesn't go away after the semester's over. The student can then use that for laundry and so on the next semester, and you want to worry about it disappearing like the flex does. So I hope that all makes sense and makes me a plan like a little easier as you huskies suit and transition into your life is a student here and Hey, Huskies lead students were God Kelsey here. So I'm gonna talk about Sameer housing options here. Bloomsburg, we offer four years of on campus housing toe all of our students. So on upper campus, we have three apartment complexes. Plus, students can choose to live in any of our seven residence halls or sold sweet style apartments. But in the meantime, I am going to show you one of the options on upper campus. I live in Montgomery Place apartments with one brew me. Montgomery places two bedroom apartments. We also have just cause law and Mount Olympus as well with Maur numbers of roommates. But today we're gonna check out my two person apartment. Wait, no, I don't think so. is my very first day with God. I bought it. Shake it like so what a lobbying man I make you want. Wait. Hi, guys. Minutes, Jen. I'm a target with the missions, and I'm making this video to talk to you guys about what it's like to be a speech pathology major. So here, Bloomsburg speech pathology falls under our communication sciences and disorders, so that includes both speech pathology and audiology. Basically, as an under grad student in this major, you take both speech path classes and audiology classes. And then after you finish your under God years, you go onto either your masters or your phD in either speech, pathology or audiology. Okay, so I know that when you come to college, choosing a major could be super difficult. But my best advice is students is to choose something that you're passionate about because you choose something that you're really interested in. You're never gonna have to work a day in your life. So coming to college, I was super interested in their account to communicate with others, learning about language and improve my interpersonal skills and speech Pathology really helped me do all of that. I also have a passion for helping others, and that's basically what I do for the rest of my life. As a speech pathologist, so I'm really excited for what the future holds, and I hope that you guys confined your passionate blooms break as well. So I'm sure that over incoming freshmen are super carries about what kind of classes you're gonna have to take as a CSD major. And just to give you some examples of stuff that you might take. Intern audiology is a big one that's required. That's gonna be a lot of anatomy, but I promise you guys can get through it. We also have our anatomy classes for the structures of the throat and the mouth, and everything that helps speech happened. We also have required math class that you have to take as well as some of your genital classes. So as an under grad student in communication sciences and disorders, I'm a part of Michela Initial stands for the National Students for Speech Language Hearing Association. So basically as a part of this organization where you go out into the community and interact with those who have communication disorders, um, and we also have opportunities for academic and career development for the future on. This is a really awesome organization to be a part of because Basically, it's a building block to your professional career as a speech language pathologist or as an audiologist. Okay, so one important thing that Oliver, incoming speech language pathologist, an audiologist students should know is that in order to be a professional audiologist, you have to attend doctor at school in order to obtain your political doctrine. This means after your undergrad years, you're going to have to attend AA four year program to get your clinical doctor it for all of our speech language. Pathologist students, you're going to have to go to at least two more years of schools. Get your master's degree or you could go for your phD if you want to do that as well. So just so you know, your schooling does not stop after your undergrad years. You do have to continue on the graduate school, but Bloomsburg has a lot of awesome Hey, Huskies, leave students right cozy here one of the most important things as a part of your college experiences getting involved on campus, inside and outside of the classroom. So Europe cleanser we have over 250 registered clubs and organizations are campus. So I want to make the spinning of the street. You got time to get involved and kind of see what we have. Do you have a way to contact these people so you can get involved during your time here? So a little background story about me I am actually thes social club vice president here on campus. And the way that I got involved is because obviously the clubs for my major but my professors actually like, said something in class and all registered students who were coming in is a pretty social work major or a current social major. Get email from the club president beginning of each semester telling them, Hey, come get involved. Come check out our meeting, come volunteer and do things with us. And so that was kind of how I found now. But in case you weren't receiving those e mails or undeclared and have other things you want to get involved in. Our center major Husky sink is a great resource to go to. So here the steps on how to do that. So step one for Syria want to is either go to the university Web page under the Eight Easy Index and find Husky Sink. Or you could just type Husky sink into Google and is the first link that comes up under blue Mudo GTO. But from there, what is important is you can easily, just long it as a student with your email and password, like your logging on the boat not quit. It'll send you to when you click signing in the top right hand corner, Husky Sinks Web page and then, from there on your screen will kind of look like this Here at the bottom. It is showing me the clubs and things that I'm involved in through Husky Sink. And then from there, you can actually search organizations and events, and things happen on campus a convertible into your and get involved. But one the most important things is for students looking to get involved at the top. It will bring you to a home page, but you want to collect organizations From there, it has a through Z of all the kinds of clubs and organizations that 250 plus I was talking about. They're all the same on this Web site. You can see what they're all about. Each of these registered clubs and orders have a little paragraph underneath it, so I'm just gonna click active Minds at Bloomsburg University. It's one of our clubs, says Active Minds is the leading nonprofit organization that empower students to speak openly about mental health in order to educate others and encourage help seeking. And then it goes on with more about what their club does and the details and when they need. But most importantly is when you click on these clubs not only tell you this information, but it tells you the adviser tells you the president's the students involved, and it gives you contact information so you can return to his people and say, Hey, I'm interested in joining your club so we have tons of clubs and orders that are on this website. Some of them are all by categories. You can actually search by category. Gronkowski stink. I just clicked on the 1st 1 that popped up. But there's academics, campus living clubs, sports, communications, creative and performing arts, cultural and ethnic diversity, department slash university clubs and org's Faith, a religion based Greek life, health and wellness leadership. And that's only half way through the alphabet. It goes the whole way down, busy with categories, and then that's not even including each individual club underneath each of those. So it is really important that when you do find a club you're interested in and say, I really like you enjoy that contact The email that is provided for you on Husky Sink gets under the people. Ask them when their first meeting is, and if you don't like it, try different club. But if you go to the meeting, you absolutely love it. Keep going. Staying will follow them or husky sinks. You could be loaned hearing with the events and things, and that is the best way to get involved. I always highly recommend it. I've made a lot of friends, but my major, I have something to build up my resume with, and it's always going to get to know people in all different years. Throughout the experience of being not even just my major, but also you could meet all kinds of people. All kinds of experiences were late and build off that support system. Just like a lot of other things we have on campus clubs. And org's are a lot of what students do outside the classroom, and I always recommend that to everyone, so always check out Husky sink. Hey, guys. So this is a looking toe honeysuckle student apartments going into the main lobby. It's really pretty. It also has a really great study lounge and a game room, as well as a complete gym, which is really nice, too. You can also get the shuttle, but the university just opened up its new catwalk that connects honeysuckle. And here's a look at my apartment. So going up the stairs, you have your key, and all you do is use your key to open the door. It's a separate key from your student ideas. Well, so walking on in, that's the living room that we have. That's one of my roommates watching the walking dead. It comes with a lot of furniture. Comes with all the couches that TV stand. Um, you just have to bring some different kinds of lights and decorations. So walking in, I'm about to show you the kitchen. The kitchen is also fully furnished, too, so you just need the garbage can and pots and pans. But it comes with a stove on microwave. Ah, garbage disposal, too, which is really awesome dishwasher and a full size fridge, then showing you one of my roommates rooms. That is Laura in her room. She just doing some homework. Pretty decent sized room. Then there's three other rooms, including Wars Room. That's me. This is the first bathroom, so there's two bathrooms and four people, so you have two bathrooms and you only have to share it with one other person, which is really great. Then walking on back out, down the hallway. It also has a really awesome washer and dryer. This is the second bathroom. So that's where that's my bathroom. That's me again. Hello? Coming on into my room. So it comes with a full size bed. They recommend that you should get queen sheets just because it's actually a full Excel. Decorate it however you want. I have a bunch of tapestries up. I set my desk up. You can have candles. You just can't like them.

So, as you can see, I was able to fit all my wardrobe, my sweatshirt to my shoes. I just got a shoe rack and then my laundry basket. Um, but that was a little bit about honeysuckle and my room. So this is opportunity for students to waken go. And it's not very far just over here There's a place we can go where you feel at ease with worries Wait, everyone. So it's about 9 30 and I'm on campus right now. I'm going to admissions to talk to T. K about a really cool social media project we're doing. Wait that way. You were never sounds. That sounds like a good way. Wait. So remember CJ here on campus, which stands for Community Government Association, which is kind of like your student government in high school. So right now I'm on the fourth floor of care in the CJ office and I'm doing my office hours. I'm off to Spanish class. Hey, guys. So now I'm off to go talk to my Spanish advisor about studying abroad in Spain this summer. Hey, guys. So I'm headed off my physics class now about my test back. So that goes well. So I'm headed in Centennial to go talk to my research advisor about a super exciting research project I'm working on. All right, so I'm just my business casual now, as you can see, um, I'm ready to go back on campus to go to my c g A meeting. I'm super excited. I get to relax, do some homework and I'm ready to do it all again tomorrow. Hey, guys, it's Blair. Today. I'm gonna be telling you about what makes bu bu As for the location of our university, So we are literally five minutes from Interstate 80 and we are 30 minutes from the junction of Interstate 80 and Interstate 81. Um, we are about an hour from Scranton, so that's a major city in the northeast of Pennsylvania. We're about three hours from New York City and about three hours from Washington D. C. So we're kind of right in the middle of those two major much politan areas and being so close to Interstate 80 it really makes it such an easy drive to get to the university. So you can see this on our Web page. But I just wanted to let you know that we've been ranked by both Forbes and the United States News and World Report among the nation's best universities. So you should definitely check that out on our Web page on this right on the main page. So you should make sure to check that out when you are applying. So as for me, are majors a miner's? We do have 56 majors across four different colleges here on campus, and we also have a bunch of miners that you can add, um, to graduate with. So that's about 18 credits, 15 18 credits, and then we also have a bunch of graduate studies. So, um, if you are a graduate student or you are an undergrad, you're finishing your senior year up in your undergrad and you are interested in checking out our graduate studies. You should definitely look those up on our website. Or if you are in high school, in your junior or you're a senior, make sure you come check out a visit on our campus. So just feel free to call our admissions office and then personally, what I like about blues work. So obviously there's a ton of different things that I like about this university. That's why I'm still here. Um, but I really liked As soon as I stepped foot in the campus, I really liked how well it was organized and how well it was planned out. So we have a lower campus in an upper campus. Lower campus is our resident halls, mainly our residence halls and all of our academics, so it's split into two So you literally have an academic quad where all of your classes are gonna be around. It's super easy to navigate, and we're on one of the only schools in the area to have a true academic quad. So that means that you're academic buildings are not intermingled with your residence halls, which is really, really easy to navigate, I think. And then, um, aside from your academic quote, we have, like the social side of campus with the big dining hall and all the residents halls, Um, and all of our club offices and organizations, and things like that and then on upper campus is our sporting facilities for varsity and some of our club and intramural um, field. So it's super super easy, and I'll get you won't be walking around, try to find everything's it's really right there laid out for you. Um, the other major thing that I like, what Bloomsburg is, all the connections that I've made here, So obviously that's not something I would have said as soon as I stepped foot on campus. But it didn't really take me long to realize that the faculty and the staff here literally work for you. like they're working for the students to get their education so they can get a job and they can get a career. And obviously, like everybody here is just working for you. And they just it really was inspirational. Honestly, Like I know a lot of faculty and staff my name. Even if I haven't had them as a professor, they just know who you are because they're always trying to help you out, no matter what. Um, and I obviously another thing I like is a view so But the only thing the only way that you could see that is if you came here for a visit, so you should definitely come.
