Rutgers gave me tons of opportunities to build my level of knowledge in my field as well as my professional experience. I am forever grateful to the supportive faculty who coached me through to the next level of education. It is really a great school that offers great scholarships. I graduated without any student debt! Anything I could complain about is really minor such as campus cleanliness, slow pace of different student services, poor cafeteria service, distance and cost of parking and limited shuttles. No, school is going to be perfect and I believe they are trying. The best part of going here was definitely the connections that I have made which will last forever.

I absolutely love Rutgers University! The people are very diverse and welcoming I felt right at home there. Such a great environment for learning, achieving goals and making new friends. I was expecting hard work and it definitely is not easy but as long as you try your hardest you should do great. I can not wait to return to campus because it is honestly an amazing college. This university offers a lot of activities, events and even free stuff to students. Many of the events and activists are also educational because at Rutgers the learning and research never ends. Research is always in the back of every Rutgers student and faculty. No single college or university is perfect but when it comes to Rutgers University - Camden it has to be one of the best universities around.
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!
