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.

Local Atmosphere: It's not terrible. There is a small shopping area such as Target which is very convenient and a few other stores but there are no attractions and no night life.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: oustide of brooklyn college there is always something to do or somewhere to eat, the abundance of places to eat really helps out alot as the cafeteria at the school is somewhat average. other than places to eat there is a local nearby mall that students can go check out, the selections are slim but its still enough to satisfy. If you really dont like anything nearby the campus you can hop on the local 2 or 5 subways and make your way around brooklyn fast and efficiently with them. Barclay Center isn't that far away from the school and that helps for those that want to check that area out on an off day or after class and the malls near Barclay Center are far better than the one right around the corner from the school. Tons of diversity all around the campus theres people that represent many different parts of the world at Brooklyn College and thats welcoming to know that.

Local Atmosphere: There isn't much going on outside of campus. Few fast food restaurants at most.
