I am currently attending Stockton University. So far in my career here, I have taken courses with a variety of professors; many of them care a great deal about their students and job, but there are a few who seem to lack such enthusiasm and passion.
There are many clubs and activities on campus; there is something for everyone! However, the university is not huge on athletics (we do not have a football team) or the party scene, which I do not mind.
Both the Galloway and Atlantic City campuses are beautiful and perfect for those who love nature.

Stockton University is literally in the middle of woods, and that's alright with me. Stockton is very much a green college; the university is pretty heavily wooded and even has a lake in the middle of it. The administrators focus heavily on maintaining a sustainable design, such as their geothermal cooling systems.

Class sizes never exceed 100 students; I would say that the average class size is probably around 30 per class. Because of this, the professors will know your name, so it's essentially like high school in the effect. The vast majority of professors have PhDs in their field and are actively doing research.

Major parties only happen off campus because we don't have any Greek houses on campus. There may be a couple parties with large groups of friends, but those usually get shut down quickly. Don't go to Pi Kappa Phi parties!

Off-campus amenities are less than favorable. You will need a car to get around, and the closest grocery store is probably a 10-15 min drive.
My experience at Stockton University has been overall amazing! I love the campus and there's a niche for everybody here. There has been a little safety issue these past two semesters, but Stockton is doing everything they can to keep their campus safe for their students. Other than that, the food has so many options and the professors are super helpful. Stockton is an overall great college to spend my next four years at.
