Who wouldn't want to live in Brooklyn Heights or Downtown Brooklyn? It is truly a beautiful neighborhood with plenty of places for shopping and nights on the town. With everything right at your doorstep, you would never have to leave the neighborhood for anything! The only downsides would be limited parking and the cost. It is very costly, but if you can afford it, it's more than worth it!

Transferring from high school to college was difficult and frightening because I didn't know what to expect but St. Francis College was very welcoming and comfortable. Everyone is very nice and want you to have a good time. St. Francis is the small college of big dreams but its very comfortable environment. There are people there to support you and encourage you to grow. The courses they have is very interesting some of the courses I disliked in high school and I enjoyed here. During finals week, they have a de-stress week where they have activities like massages, snacks, and tips to relax before a final or use it on a daily basis when you feel overwhelmed. St.Francis is very unique because the people you first meet in your classes will become long time friends. Choosing St.Francis College was a good choice because I felt comfortable and the students and faculty are very helpful.

I always see parties/events and interest meetings hosted by the Greeks on campus, but I've never been treated poorly for choosing not to participate. They are definitely present on campus and can easily identified by t-shirts, jackets, and cute tote bags!
