I've been living in Glassboro for 4 years now. I came from Ukraine, so the cultural shock and having nothing to compare it with, made me llike this town for it's peaceful and quiet atmosphere. However, after living here for a while, I started noticing small things that weren't bothering me before. First of all, it seems like Glassboro is in the middle of nowhere; there's no train station nearby, only couple of passing busses that usually only take you to Camden/Philly area or straight to the ocean. There are no attractions, the only place you can go to is bowling, and the building looks pretty old and somewhat depressing. The beautiful part of the town is Rowan University, it keeps growing every year, making the area more progressive and look nicer overall. The rest of the town looks somewhat old and poor, there are many farm around, and almost no art/business in the area. I'm giving Glassboro solid 3/5 for being a clean safe town that needs to improve its lifestyle.

Great college town where Rowan University is located! It's preschool program is excellent and well impremented. They can use an expansion of their public school program though. More college preparations, more AP courses and computer programming courses. Public transportation will help residents getting around.
Its growing for the better every single day, so much expansion and new businesses coming in. The downtown area is clean and up and coming. I love being here!
