Rowan University Reviews
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!
I recently finished my first year at Rowan University and I have already met wonderful people who I know will be in my life for a long time! One thing I really enjoy at Rowan is the fact that there is always plenty of ways to get involved on campus. From the clubs that are available to join, sororities and fraternities, work study jobs, Rowan After Hours events, etc., there is never nothing to do and there are always opportunities to meet new people. From the experience that I had at Rowan my first year I am positive that my following three years are going to be just as great, if not better!
Rowan has a very diverse campus with many clubs ranging in interest. The school also offers a unique experience available to all students that attend Rowan in the form of Rowan After Hours (RAH). RAH present students with opportunities to get involved on campus and have a good time for free. The dorms are generally well-kept and clean. Professors at Rowan are also highly skilled, and I have not had a bad one yet!
