What I like about Rutgers University-Camden is how closely knit everyone is at the school. Rutgers Camden is a fairly small school so you tend to make friends fairly easy due to it being small. Even though, there's not much to do off campus, they always have something going on the in Campus Center. What I would like to see change at Rutgers is probably their food options. The food choices never really changed and they stayed the same year round so you would get bored of the same old stuff. Otherwise, Rutgers University-Camden is a great school!

Very diverse school with incredible greek life, very easy to get in contact with professional staff and create bonds for future recommendation letters. Very close to Philly, you can hop on a train and go to China Town, Reddin Terminal and other great places in philly with your friends! Rutgers Camden also has a great Nursing program as well.
I just transferred this semester, and it has been a change, this is my first time living on my own! I love the dorms, I just wish I could choose my roommates, the food is alright, but beggars can't be choosers, the education is great, all my professors are well educated and they really care about their students. I heard bad stuff about Camden in general, but the security in the campus is really good. I didn't made a mistake of transferring.
