If you crave lots of stuff to do and love to dance the night away, you might find yourself by yourself—and that’s the truth. Unfortunately, Rowan doesn’t have too much of a nightlife, which the University does a good job of inadvertently highlighting through its Rowan After Hours (RAH) program—various events are held Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights until 1 a.m. in the Student Center. It's great that the school offers stuff to do on the weekends, but the fact that on-campus programs are regularaly held during the prime party times at other colleges says something. If you are looking for a movie to compare the local atmosphere with, you’ll have to look beyond movies like “Road Trip” and turn your attention to “The Hours”—a movie about angst and sheer boredom. But don't let the lack of a spirited local atmosphere stop you from having fun—just don't expect to have it in Glassboro.
Unless you want to enjoy peace and quiet at all times or you want to sit in on a festive city of Glassboro board meeting (supposedly, the parking ordinance conversations can get pretty lively), then don’t expect much from the city. Luckily, Rowan has detached from the depressing Glassboro environment, and there is a lot to do on campus.
