Local Atmosphere: A local atmospheric part of the the city of New Haven is the Downtown area. Downtown has many shopping stores and plenty of postive activities to get involve in including interacting with other colleges like Yale or a neighborhood college like University of New Haven.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is great public transportation to get you anywhere you need to get, also the school has shuttles as well. Sometimes because it is an urban area there are crimes going on but its stuff that is unfortunately normal at this point. In the area there are many people around the same age as college students so everyone blends in. Because the university is in New Haven which is pretty densely populated and filled with many cultures there is always a variety of things to do and places to eat.
