    You get what you pay for is a phrase that definitely applies to Bloomsburg. It is a good school, but not great. There can definitely be improvements, but I think it is the best it can be for the money we are paying.

    For one of the cheapest schools in the area, Bloomsburg has a near unlimited selection on majors, minors, classes, clubs, and events.

    Absolutely. It's such great education system. I transferred from a school where I was paying over $40,000 more to get a mediocre education and here it's a lot cheaper and I get what my moneys worth and more. Also, with dining and such, it's not too expensive and it's worth whatever money you spend.
