Being that Bloomsburg is a college there are often things that happen that shouldn't, but our police usually take care of it.

Bloomsburg is great place live.
The overall quality of life is not bad but there is nothing to do but go out to eat. There are a lot of places to go but many have been closing down because it is too expensive to have businesses in town.
