4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Brooklyn College is located in the heart of New York City, the city that literally never sleeps. There is always something to do around the area having museums, parks and many other different attractions a train ride away. There is a mall right down the street from this institution and great access to get to any other attraction being that the train is right down the street.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: One one side, there's a very well manicured suburban area. On the other side of campus, is the McDonalds where someone got shot a while back. If you stay in the suburban, manicured area, you'll be safe. Otherwise, you always have to be on the lookout.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Brooklyn in general has alot of things to see and offer, however where the school is located, specially in flatbush, there really isn't much and it's not an area I would recommend to go out and explore

3 College Freshman

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The school has many things around it so you are never bored and can always find what you need. However, parking is a great hassle.
