Rowan University Reviews
Rowan University is an amazing school that offers a wide range of opportunities to full time and part time students alike. If you live in NJ you can definitely confidently come to Rowan confident that you'll get all of the bang for your buck. With a rapidly growing campus and student base the new experiences keep on rolling in. I work here as well and can confirm that the FWS program is amazing and helps people who want to live on campus and still work! There are a couple of things that I wouldn't mind they got rid of, but overall a great school. Sometimes the campus hosts events and they don't feel welcoming to all backgrounds... Overall a great school with a decent party scene and an excellent engineering program.
As a senior in high school I was very hestitant as to what college I was going to spend my next 4 years at, but after my experiencing a year at Rowan University I knew I made the right choice. The school felt very welcoming and friendly, and had so much to offer. The professors really care and have so much knowledge to teach. There’s also plentiful on campus activities to partake in, and there’s always parties going on as well. The only reason I don’t give a Rowan 5 stars is because the off campus life is not as thrilling- as the town itself lacks excitement. Though, everything else about Rowan is great and I’m excited to spend my college experience here!
So far I have only attended Rowan for one semester, but I am already in love! The atmosphere here is great, the professors are amazing, and the clubs/ organizations on campus are approachable. I am so glad I made the decision to come here as it already feels like home and I would not want to be attending anywhere else. I feel there is great opportunity here and wonderful resources for anyone looking to prepare and better their future.
