Why study in Glassboro?

Glassboro is a charming small township in New Jersey, USA. The town gets its name from its role in glass manufacturing in the 18th and 19th centuries, and evidence of its past can be seen in the heritage glass museum and famous glassblower statue.

Glassboro is the home of Rowan University, making it a vibrant college town with a friendly community spirit. International students studying in the town can enjoy a range of trendy bars and restaurants, fascinating museums, plenty of parks and green spaces, and even a planetarium.

As a small town, you can easily get around on foot, or by using the local bus service. Those looking to sample a faster pace of life can make the short drive to Philadelphia, which is less than 20 miles away.

    Glassboro isn't a major city, its a small campus town in southern new jersey. It's mostly serviced by NJ Transit buses to camden. It's a bit hectic to travel to it from anywhere else. There are plenty of food outlets and malls near the university so thats a bonus. There isn't much of a nightlife in this area.

    The Rowan university situated in Gloucester county, Glassboro is close to major cities such as New York and Washington DC making the long weekends really fun and refreshing. The city does not have a very convenient public transportation facilities which sometimes seems to be a hurdle. An advantage of staying in Glassboro is that you have nothing else to distract you from your studies during the week. The weekends can be fun by visiting the nearby places such as Atlantic City.

    I live in Philadelphia that is the closest city from my university, city have amazing local transportation so students can travel through public transportation and also university is offering discount for their students for bus passes. In Philadelphia there are lots of places were you can get relaxation and this city is close to New York and Washington DC so this is best thing about Philadelphia. I love this city and I’m really enjoying it here.
