Bloomsburg University has given me everything that I need to be successful. The professors are extremely helpful and are always willing to give you extra help outside of class. The campus is beautiful, and everything is super easy to walk to! The town of Bloomsburg has so much to offer and is also a quick walk off of campus. The students here genuinely love their school, and it is easy to see. People don't come here because it's affordable or close to home, they come here because of its beauty, amazing educational programs, and because it simply feels like home.

I am an exchange student at Bloomsburg. So far I love this place! The town is very small, but the university is very nice. Everyone is very friendly and ready to help. I wouldn't say that all of my profs are excellent, but the majority is very helpful, accessible outside of class and highly professional. I am very happy that I chose to come here for my semester abroad. And how could I forget to mention: Bloomsburg is a big party school haha
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
