School system is average, it does not challenge students enough to compete with other students nationally making it tough to get into really good colleges. They also do not provide a lot of programs or assistance in developing your college resume.
Town is a college town so it ends up with alcohol and drug problems that can overwhelm the police dept.
Rural area with a great town park and very good outdoor activities. Nice amount of cultural events and programs for a smaller town.
Review Bloomsburg
Bloomsburg is a fantastic town to raise a small family. The local schools in the area are exceptional and the area is generally very safe. The local town park and town pool offer opportunities for people both young and old to enjoy themselves outside. The local restaurants are varied and offer unique food options, a number of theme also operate in the late hours of the night. The only thing I would like to see change is the implementation of better parking.
My experience here at bloomsburg has been very well. Things are walking distance for those who do not have cars. The university is almost like a family campus. However, the things I would like to change is more activities to do in town like arcade,bowling alley. The town is quiet which is relaxing, but it can be boring as well.
