Rowan is definitely an awesome community school to attend. The resources and opportunities offered here are endless, and there are so many that are underutilized. Academics, sports programs, music programs, special needs programs, etc., are all a highlight to the school. I would say the one negative side is the academic advising. I am a Health and Physical Education major and there is only one advisor for the school. I just feel I have had more issues while dealing with him than anything else. He didn't give me a voice or a chance to say what I wanted out of my education. He simply told me "this is what you are going to do", and if I hadn't stood up for myself nothing would have been completed the correct way. Dealing with advising will definitely require patience. Overall, this college is the place to be for everything else though. The rest of the campus staff I have communicated with have always been a huge help!

I am currently a sophomore at Rowan University. I absolutely love the campus, it is not to big or not to small! Rowan Boulevard has so many small shops and food places to offer for visitors. It is the perfect distance from my home town, not too far but defiantly not too close. The food on campus is not the best. There are two choices The Holly Pointe Commons dining hall or the market place. Jersey Mikes in the bottom of the student center is my fav! Make sure to check rate my professor before choosing your professors, it will be important for your grades.
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.
