5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Typical New York City atmosphere. Fast paced, great spots for activities and a lot of people.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Lots of things to do but you really need a car.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is alot to do off of campus, such as local malls, and parks. There is also many places to eat and hang out with friends. However, I do not get to experience those things because I do not drive to school and depend on the bus to take me place to place. However, there is many things to do. There is a school right next to the campus, and another school not too far away. These three institutes do keep in contact and are close with each other.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: its located in a very rich part of Nassau. also right next door to CW Post

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: As long as you have enough time to travel 15 minutes from school there are plenty of things to do. My friends and I love to go out to eat and then go to the mall. That's what many students do when they have a lot if time to kill they usually go to one of the two malls by my school. There is also a park that I go to by the mall that is nice to go for a walk and relax a bit before class. I feel safe in many places off campus especially at the Broadway mall since I always see security around and nothing bad usually happens at that mall. Many people have a good attitude around campus and off.
