Montclair State University Reviews
I absolutely LOVED my time here and am so proud to be an MSU alumni. I had countless opportunities to learn and grow while furthering my education. I built friendships, acquired internship experience, and even graduated with a full-time job! None of this would have been possible without the support MSU provided me with.
Montclair State University is a highly accredited university. The campus is constantly being updated and new buildings are always being built to accommodate student needs and provide a top-of-the -line education. The new buildings are beautiful and full of useful technologies. As an english major, my experiences with professors was extremely great. I as encouraged to think freely and to analyze material. I was never told what or how to think. This experience helped me to better understand myself. As far as other things like offices and parking, I never personally had any real issues. There were some miscommunications here and there but sometimes you have to take charge of the situation to fix things and that is how I painlessly got through any bumps along the road.
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).
