2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Wayne is a city that really doesn't have a lot going on. We do have NYC about 30 minutes away though.

Local Atmosphere: There are very little choices for dining off campus and the nearest mall is Willowbrook. It is a decent mall and there is a shuttle that will take you there and back. Paterson is a hood bordering the school so you don't want to go there. Wayne is the nice suburban area that borders the opposite side of the school but it patrolled heavily by police so they are always watching you and it's just not fun.

Local Atmosphere: William Paterson is in the woods, but leaving campus can be okay or it can get really dangerous. Staying in Wayne is fine, but do not venture off into Paterson unless you know people or you know where you are going!! There isn't much to do during the day off campus.
