I don't go to bars or clubs. Hartford is less than 5 minutes away.
The parties at SJU generally sucked. SJU is too far from most bars to walk to so you need to drive / taxi / train.
I like the nightlife here it is amazing. There are restaurants, clubs, and shopping malls close by.
Every RA has assigned meetings and fun activies for all the students that stay here on the weekends, so we are never really alone.
Most students go home on the weekends so it is extremely quiet here
- no big parties are aloud on campus because of how small the campus is,
- public safety walks around to make sure none of that happens anway
I enjoy the movie nights on weekends though
AND this is an all Women's University.
Pretty lame. Off-campus bars are accessible, but few; they don't card, so that's a plus. If noise, crowds, sloppy drunks and sticky floors are your thing, you'll be happy. Otherwise, good luck. Also: walk home with buddies. If you walk home alone, drunk, at 3am, there's a decent chance that someone or several someones will mug you, possibly brandishing a steak knife, and take your iPhone and wallet. Don't be a moron.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
