I chose Bloomsburg as my home. I was welcomed with open arms by a lot of upperclassmen, teammates, and even some that graduated. All welcomed me into the family, and I knew this is where I wanted to be.

Lock Haven may be a small university, but that is the advantage of attending LHU. You have closer relationships with your professors, and LHU is very connected with the community of Lock Haven.

Here, your professors know you by name, they’ll help you during office hours, and they really care how you’re doing in their class. I would recommend Mansfield if you’re looking for a place that really caters to you.
