College Student Affairs grad students at NASPA Convention

The annual national conference of NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education held in Baltimore, MD, this year was attended by thirteen graduate students from Bloomsburg University’s own Counseling and College Student Affairs program.

The conference ran March 16th-29th, during which time students attended educational sessions, learned about opportunities for involvement in NASPA, and expanded their understanding of college student learning and development. Amongst others, sessions included “Navigating the Role of a New Professional: Transition, Trials, and Tips in the First Year,” “Effective Practices in Partnering with Academic Affairs,” and “Orienting Parents and Families: How is Higher Education Serving the Parents of Students of Color, First-generation, and Low-income Students?”

The opportunity for these thirteen students to participate in the conference was made possible by generous funding from the Bloomsburg University Foundation.

The College of Education is proud of these students for representing the university and the College Student Affairs program at this event as well as for the enthusiasm and engagement they displayed while in attendance.
