3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Because NJCU is located in a city, there are many places one can rent to commute to school. I would rather rent off campus then live on campus housing because the campus housing facilities look horrible. They are right on the busy street, there is no availability, and cost is high. However, renting is also expensive. Unless you have a full time job while going to school full time, renting is not affordable.
