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.

Upon attending Bloom I was expecting a freshQuite BrightGeography and Geosciences
Upon attending Bloom I was expecting a fresh start. I had a great high school experience and was expecting my glory days to continue... boy was I wrong. Freshman year was the worst year of my entire life. Everyone has an established group of friends in the first week and you are stuck with them for the rest of the year regardless if you to or not. The students are extremely unwilling to branch out and meet new people so if you are looking for new friends others are not receptive. There is nothing to do in this stupid little town other than drink and hook up with random people. As for education it is a waste. I went in undecided so have had a very broad range of classes in varying departments. I learned more in middle school spanish than I did in level 4 spanish at Bloomsburg. Political science was a joke. I found high school 100x more challenging than the courses at bloom. And the students are unintelligent as well and are incapable of intellectual conversation or debate. In addition to be unintelligent the students are incredibly unmotivated:drinking every night, skipping classes to sleep .. at 3 in the afternoon and rejecting the idea of school work in order to watch endless marathons of netflix. There is no school spirit at this school and nothing pulling the students together. I absolutely hate this school and will not be returning next year. If you are looking to pay thousands of dollars for a piece of paper and not an ounce of knowledge, this is the school for you. Almost all of the positive comments from this school are from education majors or people who graduated 30 years ago.
