Rutgers University Reviews
Review Rutgers University
Although im not using my degree for a career, the experience at Rutgers I can't deny how great it was truly! You may have large classes most of the time so you'll feel like a number, but in reality, the professors are always available to develop a relation with and get whatever assistance you need. If not from them, plenty of tutoring sessions to sign up for. The career services office, as busy as it is, are great at helping you find the right job after college and you'll have a permanent login to their website to find jobs that suit your major! Food and nightlife is pretty dope too I use to DJ on campus and off a lot =] RU RU RAH RAH #Classof2014
Rutgers is a great university to go to! You will receive a high level of education as Rutgers hires professionals in the top of their field as professors. At Rutgers there is truly something for everyone and it won't be hard to find somewhere for you to fit in or feel at home. The diversity at the school will keep you learning inside and outside the classroom. There are hundreds of clubs and organizations including Greek life, athletics (of all levels), charity clubs, or probably any type of organization you can think of. If there is a club you would like that doesn't exist get some friends and create it! New Brunswick itself has a lot to offer for the community whether it be great food or entertainment. The only issue I have with Rutgers is its immense size. Having to ride buses around to and from class or events can get very annoying at times, but it is very doable and you will get used to it quickly.
For a big school, it can be surprisingly small once you find your way around and make friends. The school is very diverse and you can find people similar to you in the blink of an eye as well as make friends simply by waiting for the bus together. The surrounding area of New Brunswick is very interesting to explore as it has many food options and hangout spots. The professors are pretty top notch and even though you need to put in work to pass, they will help you in any way they can. I really love it here!
