Academically, the school is wonderful.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Academically, the school is wonderful. I've had a great education with the occasional professors that don't teach, expect you to learn on your own, and frankly don't care. However, I would really like to point out the food at this school. Husky is beyond the most uptight food place on campus. They won't toast your bread unless you order from the deli line. I ordered from The Grill and asked them to put the bagel on the grill so it could be warmed, and they refused and said they're not allowed. The amount of money I pay to attend this school, and buy food, they should be able to accommodate to such a small need of mine.

Apart from parking and often forgetting about commutersQuite BrightPsychology
Apart from parking and often forgetting about commuters when responding to weather situations, Bloomsburg is a really great school with great professors. I completed both the psychology and english programs and nearly all of the professors were very helpful and approachable. None of them were jerks.

Do to medical reasons, I unfortunately turned downQuite BrightPsychology
Do to medical reasons, I unfortunately turned down Ivy League and private schools to remain close to home, and ended up at Bloom. I have to say, i have been seriously surprised as to the assets and positive features of BU..and every semester I begin to grow pride and love my little school a bit more. I had been tempted to transfer, for a more rigorous psychology BS program, but once you take INITIATIVE (which is seriously lacking among students here) you can truly make the experience here any caliber of difficulty.

The Honors Program is honestly the best thing about this school. The director, the students, the service we do, and seminars we take, definitely elevate the sense of academia and community.

Also, if you get to know your professors in your department, many of them are conducting awesome groundbreaking research. It's not hard to get involved and develop a strong resume for graduate school.

Not from personal experience, but other students in Honors have great things to say about the Nursing program, as well as our Audiology/ Speech Pathology majors. Ultimately, college is truly what you make of it, and at Bloomsburg you can "make" a quality undergraduate experience for an unbelievable value.
