Kean University Reviews
Review Kean University
I love being at Kean. When I was choosing a college, Kean was the last college I wanted to go to. My first year at Kean was spent on campus despite living only about 15 minutes away. This was the best decision I made because I was able to meet a bunch of new people and learn about something I didn't know about. I was able to apply to be a Resident Assistant, but unfortunately, I did not get the position. That is until less than two weeks before school started when someone dropped out and I was asked to take their place. Taking the Resident Assistant position over going on vacation was by far the right choice because I now have 60 new friends and a family to be a part of. Kean is diverse and ever changing. It may be considered a commuter school but it's like a second home to me!
Kean University was perhaps the greatest institution I have ever attended. The atmosphere was favorable towards creativity, and the professors were very intuitive, and had experience in their professions that they are able to tell us how the industry works. The studio art classes primarily had very good hands on learning, it taught one how to think three dimensionally and not just be relegated to pen and paper. It was entertaining and opened your mind up to the way everything around us is made. Homework which is supposed to be boring and bland was fun and intriguing. What I would like to see change is the cafeteria be in the center of the campus and not so distant from the center of the University. I would also love to see more classes only available towards the night time have openings in the morning, as not everyone can attend the later classes. Other than that the school was generally good.
My experience with Kean University for my first semester was better than I expected. Kean was not my first choice to go to, I wanted to go to Rutgers University since my brother graduated from there. Once I started my first week in Kean I absolutely loved the school, the professors are amazing and they help you in so many ways. There's free tutoring for any subject you're struggling in, there's even professors that can help you with your presentations. Overall, I cannot complain about my college, whether it's about food, help or personal problems, everything I need to succeed is in this school.
