Montclair State University Graduate Reviews

6 reviews
I like that Montclair State University has a building just for Graduate Students. It's much quieter and newer than the Undergraduate buildings. Also, Graduate Students only have to go to one building. All of their classes are in one building. This is very convenient, especially if you don't have a parking pass or you only have 15 minutes between classes. I also liked how MSU offered Saturday classes. This gave me the chance to see what the campus was like on the weekends. I liked how MSU ordered a petting zoo to celebrate homecoming or to calm nerves during examination periods.

Montclair State University is a great college! The campus is spacious and clean. My only critique would be the price for a parking pass. It would be nice to have better parking options (especially passes that work better with graduate students’ schedules).
Montclair State University is a university with a truly diverse environment. As an English major, I found most of my professors understanding and easy to reach. Paperwork did get lost frequently, which could become frustrating.
