Bloomfield College Reviews
While the small size of the campus is good for anyone who is nervous on the idea of large state colleges, there are much better colleges, for a much lower tuition cost, than Bloomfield College. The campus food is absolutely atrocious, and the available times of the dining hall on campus is horrible. There is no existing party scene on campus, in part, due to the small size of the campus itself, as well as the small amount of students who actually live on campus. The dorms, aside from the new Franklin residence, are prison like. Mold and damaged furniture is common in both freshman dorms. In terms of academics, and the professors who teach at Bloomfield, it's spotty at best. Some professors will be the best you could ever ask to have, while others will be completely moronic and incapable of doing their job properly, and thus limiting the students ability to learn. That being said, Bloomfield does offer more courses for majors and programs that most other colleges wouldn't offer.
I Think My Biggest Mistake Was Attending Bloomfield College . I Already Peeped How Unprofessional & Shady Most Staff Members Were Especially The Housing Department. I Came Here Right Out Of The Foster Care System So My Guard Was Already Up & I Didn’t Trust Nobody. The Housing Department Is Probably The Most Messiest Department On Campus. They Sit Around & Discuss Everyone’s Personal Business That Students Entrusted Them With. There Was One Point In Time They Tried To Get Me To Get A Student Locked Up His Senior Year & Even Tried Bribing Me With Jobs & Internships If I Helped With Theirs & The Police’s Investigation. They Didn’t Like The Student & They Knew I Had A Few Issues With This Student So They Tried To Get Me To Get Him Locked Up. There’s so much that goes on behind the scenes. I wouldn’t suggest anyone to come here for four years
From the time that I entered Bloomfield College, I loved it! I love that although it may seem like a huge campus, it is actually a small student ratio. It makes you feel like you are with family and strangers. I would love to see the financial aid office make some changes with they way they communicate with their students.
