Montclair State University Reviews
Review Montclair State University
Being an accounting major, I hardly ever need to leave the school of business (it's practically my second home). The four years of undergrad are pretty much planned out for me, I have little room to mess up on classes and not much time to branch out (in terms of taking classes just for pure interest rather than fulfilling a requirement). Most of my professors have been great, but if you're an accounting student stay away from Lohrey and Chang, prepare yourself for Markoff because he's the hardest professor you'll have, and take Lipari if you can! The school of business (aka the feliciano building) was recently built so everything looks new and clean, the rooms and layout of the rooms all vary in size and many change based on floor (as it's done by business majors). The class sizes remind me of high school, 20+ students in the class unless you have Degaetano - in that case it'll be around 15 students (maybe less).
What I love about Montclair State University, was how the faculty was willing to help me pick out classes for the semester, and how they gave me advice on how to be a focused student. I loved the camaraderie of the students and how they are always willing to chat and hangout. What also love, is the cafeteria, and many of the outlets available to students, they are really convenient. I thought to myself, this is my college!
My overall experience at Montclair State University is good. But I think that it is always room for improvement on campus. The staff that work in some of the departments can be rude and it makes it hard for students to get their problems solved. There needs to be more flexibility and favor to students that are residents on campus because I feel that Montclair can be a commuter school. But other than those few " negative" things to say I think Montclair State University provides great opportunity. It is such a different school because they emphasize on being a community and one big family. I love opening my email and seeing different events hosted by different clubs and cultures . For example, I can open my email right now and it can be a event hosted by the LGBT community and NASO ( Native African Student Organization). I love how diverse my school is and embracing people from all over. I really enjoyed Montclair State University and how they always want students to be their best and succeed. There is always something on campus to participate in ! My best experience on campus was networking and getting a position for being a Peer Leader on campus. I have been working hard and I wanted to be a part of something meaningful on campus and becoming a peer leader was a highlight that I achieved at MSU!
