This is a great school in my opinion. People are very nice up here and the professors are great. I am a criminal justice major and so far all the professors i have met are wonderful. Campus life is really good. The food at the University is good and there is always something to do.

For the most part it is very easy to apply for scholarships, doesn't take a lot of time either. Some websites aren't so easy and a bit confusing. This websites gave me many options for scholarships, which i needed. Everything is straight forward, and very fast.

Bloomsburg University is everything i have even wanted in a college. Great people, teachers, and advisers that work with you every step of the way. A great choice for any student looking to join a state college.
