William Paterson University of New Jersey Reviews
My experience at William Paterson has been awesome. I transferred from another university so it was easy for me to compare the two and William Paterson definitely out shinned the other. At William Paterson I experienced a number of clubs, organizations, and activities to be apart of. The environment itself also felt comforting and enjoyable. It is an awesome school for commuters and for residents because it provides great opportunities for both. Therefore in my opinion William Paterson University is not just a great university because of its organizations but because of the great programs and opportunities they provide as well.

I have enjoyed William Paterson University of New Jersey since my undergraduate degree. It is an extremely diverse campus with diverse professors as well. The students are friendly and welcoming. This campus is a home away from home for me and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am now a graduate student and feel the same way about the university and it’s professors. Am grateful and fully recommend this campus to any student out there!
