William Paterson University of New Jersey Reviews

9 reviews
The Communication department at WPUNJ is staffed with some of the best and most knowledgeable professors. Each has years of experience in their own fields; however, the school hardly cares about educational excellence and relies more on increasing enrollment numbers. Those who are at a university to gain more knowledge may feel stifled by the overall lack of excellence that the school provides .

Very good program. Would have benefited from more teaching opportunities while I was in the program, but they have since addressed this issue and added spots for about half a dozen students to earn tuition remission through adjuncting. Also had excellent funding for conferences. There was no set amount, but many of us received $500-1200, per person, several semesters in a row.
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!
