Hello everyone, I will be relocating somewhere in PBC. My plan is to attend FAU in Boca. However, I think I want to live in Delray. I really want somewhere with a decent young crowd and good nightlife. Also affordable living, I hope not to spend more then 1200$ a month on rent. I know Boca has Mizner park. But it seems Delray is the place to be. I have also considered Jax beach and going to UNF. Only because living is more affordable and good night life and young crowd... Any suggestions? Thanks for looking !!

Yea Delray is a nice place to be and your right about Jax beach as well and in my opinion you cant really go wrong with either. If you don't mind a commute you could always look at West Palm Beach around the clematis street area. The biggest difference like you mentioned is price which runs higher in PBC than Jax so if your really concerned about affordable living then I would say go with UNF.

Jax is colder and more hillbilly....

Also I think FAU is a better school and is closer to more to do like Boca, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, etc...

Downtown Delray on Atlantic Ave has a great night life scene and other stuff to do, relatively young crowd too. Def enjoyed my 6 years of living there.

I graduated from FAU in 2010. I lived in Boca Raton, there are a ton of students living there. We usually went out to Hardrock or downtown Fort Lauderdale for nightlife. Occasionally we would go to Delray Beach too, this seemed to be the norm. There are some bars we would frequent in Boca Raton, but for clubbing, mostly Hardrock or downtown Fort Lauderdale.

I really hate Jax, way too country for me. If you attend FAU, you not only have more entertainment options from West Palm Beach to Miami Beach, but you also have more internship opportunities and job opportunities. Whether you live in Boca Raton or Delray Beach, I'm sure you'd have a great time. I would choose Boca Raton because you will be surrounded by more students, your commute to school will be fast and you are more centrally located.
