Any of you familiar with the Camden County college Camden Campus? I will be moving into the university city area in philly and am looking for a community college to attend for about a year or two. I initially chose Montgomery CC in Blue Bell but the Camden CC is much cheaper and closer from the University city area. How are the demographics of the campus, mostly white, black, hispanic or asians? Is the area safe to commute from university city? I notice that the campus is close to the Rutgers U. Camden campus which I've heard that it is a bit safer and that it is in the downtown which is not so much dangerous than it is in the rest of the camden city. Is this true? Please comment anything about the Camden County college CAMDEN CAMPUS... Thank you.

i x-ferred from uconn to rutgers in 93. it's a relatively safe campus. there's tons of security. you should be fine. the sightlines for the parking lot & subway are great. and a lot of students walk the same direction. is it the safest campus in the world...ummmm no. just be aware of who's around.

and, adopt a stray dog if you can

Why don't you go to CCP? It's cheaper, closer and easier to get to than going to one of the suburban schools . . . actually I think DelCo is the cheapest but if you go to Camden County you'll be out of county /out of state.

Is this a weekend thing? If so you can park at Secacus JCT and go to Newark and catch an ACES (Atlantic City) train to Atlantic City. Secacus JCT is located off I-95. Easy access and Newark Penn is the next stop down the line.

As for Camden County College in Camden, the campus itself is decently safe and I wouldn't worry taking PATCO or driving and parking. However, as someone else alluded to, why not just attend the Community College of Philadelphia? It's located right on North Broad St. and would be a lot easier to get to (and most likely cheaper) then going to Camden County College.

As for Jenny coming to AC, just head down 95 to the GW bridge, cross into NJ and pick up the Turnpike. Take the NJTP south and cross over to the Garden State Parkway (I believe it's exit 11) and then take the GSP south to the Atlantic City Expressway and there you go. If you want something easier, look into what flights you can get from Boston to Atlantic City. The air fare is generally pretty cheap and then you can take a shuttle or rent a car to get to into Atlatnic City. Depending on when you are going and how flexible you can be, it may actually cost the same to fly as it does to drive.

Our take Amtrak Regional to Newark Penn and switch to ACES to Atlantic city. But ACES on runs form Fridays to Sundays, although its different during the summer i believe. Amtrak Regional is now 49$ if you book 14 days in advance. And lower with AAA or other rewards. ACES is also very cheap. Both are less stress then driving. Or you can take Amtrak Regional to Philly and Switch to NJT Atlantic City line, if ACES is too pricey.

aces is pretty awesome, I'd probably use it more if I can make a day trip to NYC from A.C.
