Rowan University Reviews
Review Rowan University
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.
Overall my experience at this college has been great! My first impression of the atmosphere of the school was how friendly students and staff were, and made the first couple of weeks feel as comfortable as possible. The classes are interesting and professors are helpful if you ask for the help because they want to see that you have the best grade possible. Rowan has been an eye-opening experience that taught me how the real world works through it's people and skills.
My overall experience at Rowan University has been great! It's not too far from home but not too close either so it is perfect. I live on campus and I was matched with the best roomates. There is always something to do on campus and there are numerous activities and clubs/organizations available for students to get involved. Although the cafeteria is not all that great, Rowan offers a variety of different places to eat such as Green Zebra, Twisted Mac, Sono, Grills Nation, Jersey Mikes, Starbucks, and ROGO market. Also, they have Domino's, Pizza Hut, Ry's Bagels, Yogo Factory, PRIME, and 7 Eleven located on Rowan Boulevard, which is about a five minute walking distance. As a freshman, I was very pleased with my professors as they were all friendly, respectful, challenging and motivating. I have met so many great people here and I am happy I have chosen to attend Rowan University for the next four years!
