I find quite pleasant to be there. Since I live on campus, security is tight, lots of people to communicate with, various restaurants to visit, cheap rides and most important it is a very calm and quiet place. You can relax anytime, have a good night of sleep and nobody bothers you.

I live close to campus and the commute is great. The people in my neighborhood are nice families and other college students. Police patrol the area 24/7 and keep the surrounding area safe. I will continue to live here until I graduate. Love the commute into Philadelphia super easy.
Crime is bad, its camden. But the police do make it safer around campus. They really do make the students feel safe even in a bad area.
