Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania is a great school. Since the University is small, it is easy to create relationships with your professors and other students. There are a lot of different clubs and activities catered to an individual's personal interest. The community assistants in the dorms and the apartments are also great! They are there to help you in any way possible and truly care about their residents and their safety. The education received at Bloomsburg University is amazing! It is also a lot cheaper than a private school where you are receiving the same information. I would encourage everyone to apply to Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania

I graduated 15 years ago, but I enjoyed every minute of it. I was in the BSN program and felt that they provided an excellent education! The instructors were very knowldegable and approachable. The Geisinger hospital system with which we completed clinicals was the only downfall. At the time they were antiquated with medical equiptment and documentaion system. I am sure they have since improved.
Bloomsburg is a wonderful college! I have had a great experience here so far and have met amazing people. The professors are so dedicated to helping, passionate about their profession, and willing to put in the extra time. There are many activities to participate in such as clubs, sports, and so much more! This place really supports your dreams and helps you to move closer to your end goal.
