3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Good campus, but it needs a little more on-campus activities to engage students.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: When people think "Newark" they think drugs and violence, but that couldn't be the farthest from the truth. The area around my school is very city-like. There's always a new place to go to. Everyone is friendly and sees themselves as part of a team rather than just a bunch of individuals that share a common residence area.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Newark Museum of Art is right around the corner. It is not advisable to be out and about at night. There are many small clothing and shoe stores around the campus and for sports and entertainment the Prudential Center is a few minutes away.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: It's alright, but would not move here.
