  • Was very interesting walking around on a winter afternoon. Great buildings, visited a church and a display of Chinese characters. Some area's there was no disable access 
  • Very impressive and interesting place. Architecture is very impressive and interesting. You could park the street. About $5 per hour. 1-2 hours is enough to see the place. 
  • Once you go inside you could feel like you are in a different time zone. Like you are not in New Jersey. European touch. The architecture is superb. You would envy the students studying in the univers...  more »

  • Beautiful campus with well planned out colorful trees (during fall). City center has good variety of restaurants. Good visit !
  • Decent, no-frills education at reasonable prices designed to fit any budget.
  • A lot of the students are kinda dumb tbh. But there are fun events and interesting professors
  • Architecture is lovely. Their art museum has one of the most interesting and diverse collections for a museum of its size (including some Chinese terra cotta miniature figures which I believe they are the only ones in the country to have examples of) and a nice collection of antiquities (it helps to have an archeology program).
  • The campus and surrounding areas are warm and inviting. The structure of the curriculum is based on a successful outcome for students.
