    I love being here because it is 2 hrs away from my home, and it feels like home while I am at college. The students are so nice, and it is so closely knit because it is a small school which also means there is more 1-on-1 attention in class.

    I love this school, I've met my best friends here and I have fun everyday. When you live on campus you get the full college experience. A few times a week there are events in the communal lounge where you can have fun with your neighbors. The food is great, and the small integral community makes you feel like your amongst family.

    Saint Peters is a clost knit community of students and faculty that are happy to see eachother not only in the classroom but as well as around the surrounding city. With a close proximity to New York City, Jersey City is an up and coming mecca for Art and Leisure. The surrounding area of Hoboken is a new destination for restaurants and clubs. Since the area is booming there are plenty of jobs and internship opportunities not only within the school, but around the campus as well. No matter where you look Saint Peter's has something wonderful to offer you.
