Glassboro is the upcoming town of south jersey and is so innovative. The evolution it has had over the last couple of years is amazing. So many options of things to do including breweries, arcade, escape rooms etc. The food options are plentiful and the city is technology driven! Definitely worth a check!

Residents in Glassboro tend to never leave. There seem to be cults of individuals who grew up together and hold influential power throughout the town. However, I do like the university area that has been developed for Rowan University. It is making the town much nicer looking than it has in the past! It feels like an old, boring town is finally gaining some life.
Glassboro is an OK town. There is not much to do in this down simply because Rowan University is the highlight of what is here. However, the crime rate is extremely low in this town, and the townspeople I would say are pretty friendly here. The location is also good, since it is not too far from Philadelphia and Delaware. Overall, it is pretty average living in this town. Move here if you are Ok with college student foolishness once in a while
