Location, location, location!
The University of Saint Joseph has it all: one mile from West Hartford center, three miles from downtown Hartford, mid-way between New York City and Boston; and only a train ride from Washington DC.
Kiplinger's cites West Hartford's "low crime, top-ranked schools (public and private), proximity to major cities, a range of parks and historic sites, and an up-and-coming downtown with a number of ongoing development projects" in choosing West Hartford for the 2010 "Best Cities for Raising Families."
It was no surprise to the USJ community when Money Magazine ranked West Hartford as one of the nation's top 100 "Best Places to Live" in 2008. It is a thriving community with no shortage of things to do -- shopping, entertainment, dining and more!
The newly developed Blue Back Square brings even more options to this lively town. Some favorites include: Criterion Cinemas, Cheesecake Factory, Crate & Barrel, Barnes & Noble, and live performances on the Square -- but why don't you see for yourself?
