Open Mic Night

THEME: Love, friendship, and romanceExchange of Bloomsburg has partnered with B.U.’s Student Poetry Association and the River Poets for another evening of poetry, song, rap, and other spoken word for the Bloomsburg community.   Love is a force of nature that is almost indescribable to those that encounter it in their lives. It is something that we all crave, communicate, and desire in our lives whether it is from our families, spouses, friends, or pets. We hope to establish a strong connection of love and understanding between the members of the off-campus community and BU students. We all share this common goal of finding love and friendship and hope that you would join us as we revel in this wonderful event!
