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.
Spanish architecture, helpful and educational faculty, and more community events than I could imagine. Montclair State University is the perfect school for me. As one of the top business schools in America, their reputation for excellence and innovation is impressive. The only things that could improve do not have anything to do with the Academics of the university, but more so with parking and the public transportation to the school. I wish buses and trains were direct from Morristown to Montclair. I think my favorite part of the University is the ability to be involved with different aspects of student life. I can be an Economics major that participates in the community garden and I can study abroad all in one semester. It's the flexibility and opportunity to do anything I want that sets this school apart from others.
