Bloomsburg Reviews

All Categories
Bloomsburg is a great place to go and visit or live. As a student, the atmosphere here is very friendly and welcoming to everyone. There is a tremendous amount to do with family or friends around the area. With just moving into the area and being 22 there is a lot to do that is cost friendly and age appropriate. Even when my family comes to visit with my young nephew, we have plenty to do and have fun.
I am a student at BHS and I can't imagination going to school anywhere else. The people in town are generally nice. It's a nice town and it's cool having the college right in the area. However, the college kids can be annoying at times. Especially when they are partying.
I live in Bloomsburg because it is a family oriented town and I have raised my children here as well. It is a well versed community and I can count on my needs being meant by law enforcement if needed. I do find that it is a poorer resourced town that does not have a lot of resources for people in financial need. Other than the resources it is a great family town that is one I would recommend for someone that wants to raise a family.
