    There are many events where you can take a break from your studies and relax. In addition to this there is a center called dasher center where you relax yourself when you must need it. In there you can play video game and board game. Also there is a TV where you can watch anything that you want. In short is pretty much cool.

    I really enjoy being here because even though people just say coming here is not a good choice, I feel it was a great choice. There's so many opportunities here that I have to get me jobs, a high GPA, and diverse people to make friends with. Also it's very safe on campus, but once I walk off campus for a few blocks, there's creepy old Newark men who call out random things to me. But at least the bus stops are around the campus so I only have to walk for two minutes to get to the bus.
