My time here thus far has been mediocre. Luckily, I have the opportunity to transfer in the Fall of 2017. For the love of God, make sure you visit your school and know everything there in and out before you enroll! My mistake, I didn't know much about Rowan - only that my sister goes here and it's reasonably priced. I decided to go to Rowan because I felt that it was appropriate. My sister goes there, so then the move-in day will be easier for my parents, from a cost perspective Rowan is a great investment, it all sort of made sense. I am not fond of the Southern Jersey atmosphere at all. To get to the point, I never toured the campus whatsoever. Was it my fault that I decided to enroll at a university before checking it out? Yes, I wouldn't contend that at all. It is my fault, and I wasted so much time and money. Let me make this clear, Rowan is definitely not the worst school in the world. They offer a good deal if it is the right school for YOU.

Literally the most average school you will ever go to. Rowan can't compete with other schools like Rutgers and they accept way too many people so the overcrowding here is ridiculous. Financial Aid and the Bursar's Office are complete jokes, no one ever helps you, and there are frequently mistakes made that mess up your entire aid. Advisers help you with the bare necessities. There are a lot of great professors here, though. Housing is a joke because they can't keep up with the demand for it. Mental health services here are lacking. Rowan does have some interesting courses offered, but not enough. The self service that students use crashes every semester right when everyone has to sign up for classes, leaving students frantically trying to get into classes. It's not the worst school but it's definitely not amazing. Gets the job done, not impressive, especially when you look at how much it costs to go here.
I am currently a student attending Rowan, and my experience so far is great. The campus is clean, and the architecture of Business Hall and Bunce Hall is beautiful. Professors are outstanding and passionate about teaching. Library is easy to access. I highly recommend this college!
