    2014 Ca l e nda r

    The ivy-covered walls of Carver Hall, original building of

    the Bloomsburg Literary Institute, June 25, 1930.

  • JANUARY

    Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday

    TO KEEP BLOOMSBURG UNIVERSITY an institution of choice for the students who study here each year, we are constantly planning for the future, enhancing academics, upgrading facilities and studying projected employment needs. The observance of Bloomsburgs 175th anniversary encourages us to pause, look back at our many accomplishments, both collectively and individually, and celebrate who we were, who we are and who we will be.

    The world was a very different place when our predecessor, the Literary Acade-my, was established in 1839 to teach the elements of a classical education. Howev-er, that year in Lexington, Mass., an experimental normal school opened as the first state-funded institution specifically established for teacher education. Starting with just three students, the school in Massachusetts served as a forerunner of what our academy would become when it was purchased by the Commonwealth of Pennsyl-vania in 1916 and renamed the Bloomsburg State Normal School.

    In the following calendar pages, Bloomsburg Universitys rich history as normal school, state teachers college, state college and university is illustrated through archival photographs and notations on significant dates. This is who we were, who we are and the foundation of who we will become as we continue to meet students educational needs in the Colleges of Business, Education, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.

    I am proud of my place in Bloomsburg Universitys history as the 18th president. I am even prouder of the successes of the nearly 85,000 alumni who graduated from our institution over the years and of the potential of our more than 10,000 current students. Thank you for celebrating Bloomsburgs 175th anniversary with us. Sincerely,

    DAVID SOLTZ President, Bloomsburg University
