New Jersey City University is a smaller campus therefore everyone socializes with everyone. Chances are you will have friends within the first week of being here as long as you are outside of your dorm and attempt to participate in beginning-of-semester events.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Since New Jersey City University is not in the best area, it is not smart to walk to a store at night without a friend. It does get dangerous but overall, it is okay during the day.



In all honesty, it is a really good school. I used to attend a previous university but would go there a lot since a lot of my friends go to NJCU, and I loved the layout of the campus and the people that went there.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only thing that I don't like about the University is the limited amount of parking space.
