Lacking college experience, to say the least. There are no academic standards here! It's sophomore year of high school over and over again and I've taken their most rigorous curriculum in my time here. I'm talking 300 and 400 level courses as a freshman. I came to Caldwell University because my mom had just died and I was emotionally unstable and I needed somewhere easy to go to and it didn't hurt that it was free. Did well my first semester, 4.0 which doesn't matter since the academics are complete bs, but I came back my second semester disillusioned and depressed - was finally dealing with my mom's death. I did poorly in my second semester because of the previously mentioned depression - I had a 2.6! I went to my therapist and psychiatrist, got all of the notes/forms/documentation together, and qualified for a medical withdrawal on the basis of mental health. The health office said I was accepted for a medical withdrawal! It was rejected by the administration - the dean of student affairs rejected it. I went to the vice president of academic affairs to appeal and she told me to my face that "you chose not to come to class." It wasn't depression apparently as a response to my grandmother dying in a country where I couldn't visit her to say buy about a year after my mom's death apparently. That's how she phrased the rejection to my appeal of the initial decision. Now, I knew I was stuck here which was their plan all along, I'm convinced. I was in the transfer trap where your GPA is screwed so you can't go anywhere. So, I stayed for a third and last semester and put in a transfer app. to Rutgers NB. I got rejected on the basis of one D on my transcripts. They have an institutional policy of not letting you in if you have a D in the last 12 credits you've earned. I went to the Rutgers admissions officers and pleaded my case - they realized it was ridiculous to reject my medical withdrawal that semester. They graciously let me in and I will be starting off my fourth semester at Rutgers New Brunswick. I'm now worried that my one-and-a-half year hiatus from actual schooling will tank my grades coming this spring. I'm also going to have to pay around seven thousand bucks to retake the credits as to not destroy any chance I have at an actual graduate school. I put in the time in high school, studied my ass off, got into Duke and a bunch of other great schools. I figured two years at a crap institution and I can transfer back into a school I wouldn't be ashamed to be associated with. Caldwell University ruined my life to a certain degree. I lost a year and a half of it because of going here. All I have to show for it is dark circles under my eyes, being out of shape, and not having any friends because I'm generally pissed off whenever I have to be there which is often since they have a mandatory attendance policy that lowers your grade by a letter grade for each absence beyond two. I could not show up to class and get an A is what I'm saying here people but I have to show up and listen to lousy professors ramble on and on.
The international students get the worst of it. They're screwed for more reasons than I'll ever be just because they're getting out with no actual degree, just empty promises and a piece of paper not worth its own weight.
People, don't make the same mistake I did! It's a waste of time, effort, brainpower, and money to go here. Go to a community college for a semester or two and transfer out from there. This is where dreams go to die. This is where they take kids who qualify for a lot of financial aid, give them the illusion of an education, an alumni network, prospects for a job, or any hope of being successful.
In the interest of honesty, a few kids to go to good grad schools every year. But, you shouldn't throw hundreds of kids under the bus for each year and pride yourself on the success of a few. I'm no longer bound to this school - I got out. I still have to come back and retake the courses I messed up in - 10 credits in total - to salvage my chances at a decent graduate school, but at least I don't have to ever take shit from another uppity faculty member who full well knows what institution this is and instead treats the sane students who reject the premise that you have to respect them while they perpetuate this nonsense. This turned out into more of an angry rant, but the moral of my story and a dozen other stories of kids who've gone here is - DO NOT GO HERE! Please, no matter how much money they give you, no matter what they say, realize that sacrificing your future for a bit of debt is not worth this. Save yourselves! Don't do what I did!
I attended Caldwell University for my freshman year and having experienced Rutgers New Brunswick I can say definitively that Caldwell University is the worst academic, social, and cultural experience I could have asked for. There are no academic standards, the food is repeated every day, the professors aren't able to teach effectively and the student body is equally disinterested in learning. I went there on a full-ride expecting to have a complete college experience but found that instead, I'd be reliving junior year of high school. After I realized this, it took about a semester, I stayed another semester to bolster my application for transferring, I didn't do well in high school, and got out. Trying to make it at Rutgers was difficult because the students at Rutgers had been offered an education that was to the level of a postsecondary institution while I was in high school for an extra year. I did poorly my first semester at Rutgers but have since been able to claw myself up to an actual postsecondary institution's standards. My advice to you is don't attend here no matter how much money it saves you or how they try convince you. It's the worst college experience you could ask for and it won't land you a job because of the school's terrible reputation!
Small class sizes and caring professors and staff. Beautiful campus that is located just 40 mins away from NYC. Tuition may be a bit expensive, but there is a lot of individual attention to ensure the success of each student. The on campus life could be better, but improving each year.
I love it dearly. During the visit the whole time i was thinking about how perfect this school was for me and i honestly cant picture myself anywhere else. This school has everything im looking for from the classes to the color of the gym. Its honestly the place to be.

I have learned that there are people willing to work with you at this college that encourage you to succeed. The people at this college are willing to take time out of their schedule to sit down and have a chat with you if you need one. For example, someone from this college was willing to sit down with me and plan out my next few semesters at this college telling me what classes remained for me to take and advised me on which classes to take during each of the semesters.
I have found that I have been accepted at this college. All students are different and the professors are willing to work with the students in order to have their academic needs met. The relationship between a student and a professor at this college is very professional and very heartwarming to be a part of.
This has been valuable to me because I was very scared and confused when taking the steps of setting up my classes. This college has assisted me in ways I never thought possible through e-mails and phone calls. If I was ever confused with anything, there was always someone there to help.

When I tell my friends about my school I brag about the size of the classrooms. It is really easy for me to ask questions and recieve indiviudal attention from my professors. And I also have great interaction with my peers and my professors. I also brag about how great it is to attend a small school where the distance between buildings is minimal because they are close together. It is easy to schedule classes back to back because there isn't a large distance to get to them. I love the friends I've made there too.
