JERSEY’S BEAUTY

A reader comments on why students may not want to go to school in New Jersey:

New Jersey truly is a beautiful state. Unfortunately, many of our universities are located in the most dreadful places. Who wants to attend college in downtown Newark? (I did, and it wasn’t pretty.) Sure, Princeton is beautiful. But do you really want your kid learning from Peter Singer and Cornel West?
