Rutgers University Reviews
Review Rutgers University
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.
Overall, Rutgers is an amazing school with myriad opportunities for study. As a music student, the program here at Mason Gross, while underfunded, is top-notch with great faculty and lots of playing opportunities. I also participate in an athletic club and a thriving Jewish community here. You can do anything at Rutgers from a sociology degree to biochemistry to horticultural therapy. There's something for everyone here!
I am a current freshman at Rutgers New Brunswick, but even though it is my first year being a full time student I practically lived at Rutgers for the past 4 years. Since my freshman year I was blessed to be part of different summer programs at Rutgers. I also was able to take expository writing along with basic comp the last year of high school. My teacher was amazing! I loved almost every single teachers I've had here at Rutgers. You feel like you are surrounded by family. The environment of family is not only found within the staff to students but within students. I have made tons of friends who are one of a kind. The people here at Rutgers are extremely friendly. The more you get involved and you look for clubs the smaller the schools seems.
