What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
Bloomsburg is what you make of it. If you get involved and are active in the community and on campus, you'll have a great time. If you're looking for city life and constant activity, this school is probably not for you.
Erin from Harrisburg, PA
Bloomsburg University has always been willing to make career dreams come to life. The faculty and staff are more than happy to help, with a smile on their faces, and the campus itself is small, beautiful, and like home. Campus life leaves nothing to be desired as there is always something going on for everyone to be involved and make his or her experience as memorable as possible.
