3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: No social activities or asult students. Isolating the adult students from the majority of college age students.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Love the place. In the heart of Brooklyn. Awesome transportation by train, many stores around and local places to eat. Also there are shopping centers.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: I came to New York from Texas to experience the city life, and I definitely got what I asked for. It was a great experience and still remains as such, though I definitely see myself returning back home once I finish. However, I'm not quite done getting my experience here up north. There are plenty of places to eat off-campus, and Fulton Mall is just about a five-ten minute walk away and offers a variety of shops. I feel like this was a great choice in finding a college to go to in order to gain both education and experience.
