This restaurant is comparable to The Cheesecake Factory. It is a local restaurant (quite large on the inside) with pretty good food and a fun atmosphere. The service is usually pretty good- but it is sometimes compromised by new staff since the turnover rate for employees is...

Makeda Ethiopian Restaurant
Nice ambiance of simple decour and Ethiopian food. The tables are a bit cramped, but the high ceilings give a feeling of spaciousness anyway. You can request silverware, but you're really supposed to eat with your hands. The food tastes a lot like Indian food, but there are...

George Street Camera: Everything Photography
This shop caters to the Mason Gross School of the Arts and all the students who are taking photography there. The staff here is very low key, friendly, and knowledgeable. They won't try to push you products that you don't want, and it is perfectly fine to just go in and ask...
99 Cent Dreams
In this store you will find everything you ever needed and more. Everything is 99 Cents or less, hence the name, 99 Cent Dreams. This store is fantastic - from toiletries and gift wrap, to cleaning supplies and tools, it has it all. It is a favorite with the college students...
In this town we work hard, and we party hard. The college kids like the beer, the vodka, and anything else that will mess them up and leave them a bit confused in the morning. Chances are, if you live here, you know at least one bartender, so even if you're broke (as usual), you can still get drunk for free in a bar.

Crime and Punishment
Even though New Brunswick has some great ethnic neighborhoods, they are also poor ethnic neighborhoods where crime is high. Don't drive with doors unlocked, pay attention to your surroundings and don't walk around at night (true of any NJ city). Rapes seem to be on the rise in this city so be careful if you are a woman walking around at night. The parking decks are particularly dangerous, a professor at Rutgers I knew actually was grabbed by someone who had been hiding under her car.

Mason Gross School of the Arts
Exhibitions, annual showing of the Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper, and a variety of juried and thesis exhibitions curated by visual arts students at Mason Gross. Events are always being added, so be sure to call often. All exhibitions are free and open to the...
A nice street in a student neighborhood. A part of town is completely populated by students in every house! Don't expect to get much sleep in this area, although it is really nice in the summer when everyone is out barbecuing on their front porch and drinking beers!
Winter in New Brunswick
Snow is another excuse to go get drunk. Winter 2003 was particularly rough and the university had to close down for a few days. During that time, students ruled the streets with sleds, snowboards, snowball fights, and other crazy antics.
In the spring when it gets warm, a lot of classes move outside, students are playing frisbee and guitars in the quad, and the atmosphere turns to anticipation of long hot summer days at the nearby Jersey shore.
