Am I the only one who thinks that OP declining the original offer makes this entire conversation pointless?
I wasn't implying that I will have to venture into other parts of Camden...I was worrying about the ghetto areas being so close to campus that it won't be that hard for the thugs to wander a few blocks - I hear that Camden has just had its 30th murder victim of the year, and Philly had 6 murders in the past weekend. I grew up in the area and it is getting as bad as ever. One worry I also have about Rutgers is that it seems to be a commuter school, making it harder to meet people outside of class. Don't know if this is necessarily true, though.
