Although I have only been attending Kean University for almost three years, I have found a home away from home, an amazing education and lifelong friendships. The people at Kean University instill the confidence that everyone needs. Alongside with Kean's education, I believe that safety, when you're on campus is also important. With campus security all around campus, I always feel safe and never have to worry about a thing. I have to say, as a freshman, I worried that I wouldn't know what to major in, wouldn't make friends and a lot of other things. However, I was proved wrong when I found out Kean provided a lot of opportunities for their students in relation to finding out what kind of career they see themselves pursuing in the future. In addition, I came across these group of people in one of the clubs on campus. There, I found lifelong friendships with many of its members. Overall, my experience at Kean University is something I will never forget.
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!
The university of kean I like because although it is good has different programs to help the students that enter to study and some of the programs is the Spanish Speaking Program, this program is very good because it helps the hispanic students because sometime they dont understand the inglish but with this program they learn the language.
Also, I like this university because it is a university recognized by the help and the advice that they give to the students. In addition, they have many opportunities for the students and have program like sports, clubs that give you the opportunitity to grow in your personality.
