The campus is extremely diverse! Great crowd and great education system. The professors are easy to work with as they are extremely helpful. There are a lot of courses in the school system; although, the main ones that are important usually get full easily. However, the school is amazing. Although the neighborhood isn't too great, the campus seems to keep their students safe as possible with security.

I consider the three years I spent studying at Rutgers University-Newark some of the best years of my life. During my time, I had met some of the most impressionable and kindest professors and humans I have ever encountered! Great university!
This school is great for what it's worth. The tuition of going to another school for a year is equivalent to going to Rutgers for four years, specifically because of its ease of commuting. This school also has the unique quality of being extremely diverse, arguably the most diverse in the nation. Being in this school forces you to be open-minded about different ideologies, people, cultures, religions, races, genders, etc. This school also has connections to huge financial firms, if you are interested in business.
