A group of Bloomsburg University students recently completed a study abroad experience at the Universidad del Centro Educativo, Rosario, Argentina, where they visited historical and culturally significant and studied the Spanish language and literature.
Participating were Spanish and secondary education majors Mallie Culpepper, Adriana Berlin, Kelly Mason and Abigail Messinger, a Spanish and speech-language pathology major. Specifically they visited Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Misiones and Montevideo, Uruguay.
At Misiones they visited a Guarani village and the Iguazú Falls. In Buenos Aires they attended a Tango Night, besides touring the city and Caminitos, the Italian Argentina barrio were Maradona, famous Argentina world soccer player, was born. They also visited the stadium where he played.

From exploring digital forensics to deciphering secret computer codes to testing chemical reactions to examining the difference between human and animal bones, Bloomsburg University’s Math and Science Summer Experience recently opened several impressionable eyes on campus.

More than 50 local middle and high school students participated in the week-long camp, where they got a taste of digital forensics, computer science, human and biological forensics.

The annual camp - hosted by the College of Science and Technology - is designed to broaden the participants’ interest in math and science, along with enhancing their skills and understanding to bridge the summer break gap. Their classroom exploration included hands-on labs and exercises, presentations and demonstrations.

Newly minted graduates go in all directions once they walk the commencement stage. For one Husky, her graduation journey went international.

Jeanine Hubert, an anthropology major, completed her undergraduate degree commitment this summer with a four-week study abroad research program in Nicaragua. Through the Maderas Rainforest Conservancy, Hubert spent most of June studying primate behavior and rainforest ecology on the island of Ometep — settled in the middle of the largest freshwater lake in Central America.

Specifically, Hubert observed two groups of monkeys native to the island collecting 25 hours worth of data in the rainforest. Through her research, Hubert found there may be a strong correlation between the primates’ eating behavior and the evolution of their tails.

In addition to her field success and degree completion, Hubert admitted she also discovered from her time abroad something just as long lasting — if not more memorable — within herself.

There was a moment I looked around and realized that I don’t know what force brought me to this place, but there’s a piece of my heart that will always be tucked away on the island of Ometepe,” Hubert said. “So cliche right?”
