    Brookdale has lots of things ones can do here. For example, Brookdale has what's called a Laugh at Lunch program. This is a series of events in which every so often, an entertainer is invited to perform a live stand up comedy show. During this time, Brookdale students are invited to kick back and enjoy lots of original and funny jokes. I once went to one of those shows, and I really enjoyed myself and laughed a lot that day.

    It's close to home and much easier than being in a dorm room, possibly stuck with a roommate that you don't get along with. Everyone is nice and you'll always see your friends around campus.

    The college has multiple convenient campuses, the main one being in Lincroft. It's minutes away from the Garden State Parkway, Route 35, and towns such as Red Bank and Eatontown. There's always some organization hosting an event on campus, whether it's Laugh at Lunch or the Visiting Writer's Series. The library, bookstore, cafeteria, and convenience store on campus also help supply needed materials, as well as pass the time between classes.
