Rutgers University Reviews
In Fall 2017, I transferred in to Rutgers University in New Brunswick from a community college. By now, I feel like I am a part of a very diverse family already. From the students to the professors, every one I have met are very down to earth and helpful. The academics have taught me more than I could ever ask for and have broadened my horizons. The professors are extremely smart and very good at explaining the material. I live on campus and the dorms are very nice and the RAs and other representatives are very helpful. Moreover, Rutgers has kept me occupied by all the extra curricular opportunities that are available. I have had the chance to network with amazing companies and have applied for internships already. I absolutely love it here at Rutgers!
After a semester at Rutgers, I am happy to say that my college experience has been great. I had a relatively easy schedule with much free time. I spent most days working and studying, only to end the night hanging out with the kids I met living on my floor. It has been a lot of fun and being in-state, also very affordable. My professors have so far been very outgoing and reasonable. They make it easy to reach out to them, and make learning accessible to all types of students. Overall, the school is welcoming and exciting. I couldn't ask for too much more. On the other hand, functioning aspects of the school need work. The busing system has been a hassle, especially coming from a small town. The academic advisers aren't much help, and there is not much to offer in terms of dorm maintenance. I would love to see these small issues be improved upon!
Rutgers is an excellent school academically & socially. New Brunswick is a great college town and even though I am from NJ (like 80% of the kids) I feel like I am away. There is always something going on and the campus is an urban environment--not like my hometown. I feel like I'm in the "real world," with a large and diverse group of people. Kids here are SMART! If you're from NJ and you are not in the top 20 percent of your class, you probs won't get in....which may be part of the reason NJ kids sometimes trash talk. Out of state, people actually think Rutgers is Ivy/second tier ivy. Faculty is outstanding and known. Access to NYC is a huge plus for internships and weekend cultural experiences. Maybe soon we will have a great football team, but the games are still alot of fun.
