Rutgers University - Newark Reviews
Loved the diversity and inclusion at this University! This is one of the most diverse college campuses in the United States and promotes inclusiveness and tolerance among students and faculty members. Great urban campus in the heart of the financial district of Newark. There is new construction happening all the time and there are great spots for coffee, lunch, dinner, as well as night life. Rutgers provides renowned education for its students and most professors deeply care about their students. There is an issue with parking on campus, but I hope that will be rectified soon.
My college experience is great! I am taking my Rutgers classes at the local County Community College. The classes are at night time.I am getting the best of both worlds. I get to live at home, get my bachelor's degree, work at the same business for several years and save money. I didn't incur all the other expense's like a student that went away to school does. The advisor is wonderful and very helpful. The professors are ok.
Rutgers University is a great college for students looking for diversity, great education, and an overall amazing college experience. Throughout my year and a half at Rutgers, Newark I’ve enjoyed the diversity of my peers, the amazing professors, and the curriculum taught on campus. Overall, I love attending Rutger University, everyone on campus from students to professors make my college experience as enjoyable as it can be. Rutgers University is dedicated to bettering their students and making them feel comfortable. Their exciting events held on campus to encourage students to have some fun here and there and take a break from the stress school can cause. Altogether, attending Rutgers University was one of the best decisions I’ve made and I’m excited to see how far they can help me excel in my future career path!
