Montclair State University Reviews
My experience here at Montclair State University forces me to become a better person, without sounding so cliche. The professors here are okay, the reason why is they are very close-minded and authoritative. You cannot question their judgment, and they are not open to new ideas. The campus buildings and dorms are kept clean and updated - which is a huge plus to recompense their weaknesses. The student life here is dull since most people are commuters and the students only hang around with people from their high school. The food here is from good to average in some days. Finally, the academics here is excellent since it has tons of academic variations along with professors that are passionate about their specialized field. All in all, it is a great university!
I love the campus size! MSU gets to experience the best of both worlds by being 15 minutes away from the city but also, being a comfortable size where you can recognize several of your classmates walking around. The professors are always very helpful as well which is a top priority for me. I feel well equipped at Montclair State to succeed further in life.
I am currently a freshman at Montclair State University and I truly do like the school. This school provides a lot of resources to help perfect my craft and offers a lot of activities/ clubs to participate in. The faculty, staff, and my fellow classmates are very friendly and I love that this school is diverse. I am looking forward to continue to further my education here!
