4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of shopping areas and malls around. It is a division 1 school so we are very competitive as well. Like I said before, the school campus is very safe with a lot of police officers.

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Although New Britain is considered a city, CCSU is located a ways away from downtown.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It's more easy to find supplies than entertainment.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There is really only one bar or two bars that are worth going to. The New Britain Museum of American Art is actually a really great museum which has night events sometimes too. There are some rough parts of New Britain though and it can be quite dangerous.

2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Big residential community of older individuals.
