Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    One of the more important qualities of a college that I was looking for was it's setting and it's staff. As previously mentioned, the staff here is superb and attentive of your needs, which I believe is a must for a college or university. That leaves me with WestConn's setting. If you haven't traveled here yet, it should be one of your first priorities. The campus here is beautiful -- placed in the middle of the bustling city of Danbury. The school's serene-like setting is complimented well by the flourishing city it resides in. If you are looking for a campus that inhibits the qualities of a quiet, country-esque, theme. Whether you're located on the main campus, Midtown, or on the larger, more isolated Westside campus that overlooks the mountains, you will be sure to appreciate the quiet and peaceful surroundings that compliment Western Connecticut State University.

    There is never a dull moment on campus. I've made so many friends, and there is always something to do. The professors are wonderful, the on campus job opportunities are fabulous, the housing facilities are comfortable and accommodating and there is plenty of shopping and places of entertainment nearby, so you could never be bored. There is a large mall and various shopping centers within miles of either campus and their are many restaurants nearby fit for anyone's cravings.

    I do not plan to party hard and screw up school like unfortunately a lot of kids do their first year. I do however hope there are some chill places to see live music occasionally. I am over 21 so having some bars located near the college would be nice, but I haven't heard there was much of a night life/music scene in Danbury...
