BU Showcases New Modern Residence Hall at Second May Business After Hours

Bloomsburg University rolled out the red carpet (actually maroon and gold to represent the school’s colors) for its fellow Chamber members as it hosted a large crowd at its newest building, Soltz Hall, for May’s second Business After Hours on May 30. Several dozen individuals from Chamber members and their guests had an opportunity to hear from representatives of a handful of BU departments, meet BU president Dr. Bashar Hanna, and take a tour of the new residence hall, all while enjoying a tasty buffet spread and drinks on a pleasant late spring afternoon.

Attendees also had an opportunity to take a tour of the new building, including a trip up to the sixth floor, where the views of downtown Bloomsburg and the surrounding area are unlike nearly any other building in the area. They also had a chance to meet with representatives of BU STEM Magnet program, it’s professional engagement staff and the IT department’s Institute of Interactive Technologies.

Business After Hours provide regular opportunities to build business relationships while learning about the services offered by other Chamber members. The next Business After Hours will be held at First Keystone Community Bank’s Berwick branch and headquarters, located at 111 West Front St., Berwick, on Wednesday, June 20, from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
