I LOVE Rutgers-Camden! Some people complain, but I have had an amazing experience here. My professors are all amazing, some are a little tougher than others, but I didn't expect college to be easy. Its so easy to be involved in campus activities. We have beautiful dorms/apartments and a brand new Nursing/Science building!

Great environment. There needs to be more available parking for students, or a commuter garage where fees aren't ridiculously high. Food wise there aren't many name brand options, love to see a chipotle or something around. The walk to the health sciences building is terrible, walking through the straight ghetto of Camden, walking by addicts passed out on benches or entire neighborhoods lined up at the methadone clinic. The people have to respect for normal driving rules, walk in the middle of the street when an oncoming car is coming, don't respect red lights, etc.
Rutgers University-Camden is a well-established school that provides so much for the facility, students, alumni, and even the family members of the students. While it is a small campus, It still gives the same experiences and education like the other two campuses. Rutgers-University Camden is evince to build a stronger relationship with the student academically and socially. This is such a great school and campus and honestly I can't wait to achieve my goals and pursue my education over at Rutgers-Camden.
