Newark in general is not the best location. Don't be surprised to find a few homeless people hanging around campus. But campus security is pretty tight. Rutgers Newark offers great options to reach out to professors, such as office hours and academic advising. As a freshman, I highly suggest living in Woodward: that's where most freshman live and how you develop relationships is better over there than at University Square. The party scene has been pretty dead. First week was great but frat row was on probation and hasn't been open since so parties are few and far in between. I've had a few moments where I wonder why it's so had to find a party on a Friday night. Best bet are dorm parties and some bars in the area.

So far here at Rutgers, its going good and the professors are excellent. For example, the professors offer office hours for you if you need help or have questions that you don't want to ask in class.
