Rutgers University - Newark Reviews
I've been at Rutgers Universit-Newar for three years now and my experience there has been pretty okay. I love the diversity of the school and how we are in a city; however, parking is terrible! even if you have a permit you need to be their hours before your class to secure a parking spot in a parking garage/lot you paid for. Also, there are many professors seem uninterested in helping their students outside of class not to mention some of them assing an unnecessary amount of work! I will admit though that the students org do make up for a lot of the gaps within the academic system, they help you get in touch with peers that have already (or are) taking the course so they can guide you or help you when you're stuck. The student organization also help student enroll in developing programs as well as puting them in contact with recruited for internships and mentorships.
I didn't like online classes at all! Well, that's an overstatement since I did take one online class that I did enjoy; however, that was tailored to be an online class since the get-go. The classes I didn't enjoy were the ones that were made online because of the Virus. I feel that these classes translated poorly to a virtual classroom. Maybe it was because of the short time in which teachers had to reivest their class structure or that it just does not hold the same value as a face-to-face lecture.
My experience at Rutgers has been amazing! I’m finished my first year, and I have barely any complaints. The school is very diverse, and it helped me create forever-lasting networks. I’m currently dorm, and there’s a lot of support from the students and staff. Even with the transition to remote classes, I was supported by Rutgers and the Professors with all the challenges I’ve faced.
