John - 08/11/2020

I'm writing this review in August 2020. Honestly, I'm surprised by how all of the reviews are positive. I would not recommend this school, and in fact you should avoid it. No one here seems to be really being honest so I will, which is why I felt the need to write this review. Do not go to this school if you want a real college experience. Most of the students are either from working-class or poor backgrounds or ghetto. I don't mean that to be mean, I'm just being honest. Many students are loud, rude, and mean. The dorms are terrible and small. The cafeteria food is mediocre, verging on bad. The international students stick to themselves. Some professors care about their students, but I've witnessed a good amount that don't. The campus funding, the tuition students pay, and the facilities are all a joke. About half of the students commute and the other half live on campus. The only nice part I can think of is that the town itself where the dorms are, in Rutherford, is pretty nice and it's about a 15 minute walk into the downtown from the school. If you drive, it's a few minutes. Overall, avoid this school.

Eddie

The food isn't the best, the dorms are a little small but we have a community. The town of Rutherford is amazing and even though it has yet to accept our presence fully some residents encourage our growth. Felician is a school that has a lot of room to grow but in the coming years it should grow into an amazing school.

My overall opinion of Felician College is that the as a whole the college is great. I love that the school is a small school and not a big university, I enjoy the small community and being in a smaller class setting. It makes learning way easier then having about two hundred students in one class. I also love the staff everyone from the teachers to the working security guards are a pleasure to be around. After just one school year I'm comfortable with my environment and the people that is in it. I also love the diversity of the school, Felician has many students of different race and different backgrounds and that was a major must have when I decided to attend this college. I believe when you're put in environment with people of different cultures and cultural beliefs your growth as a person will be phenomenal. Overall I believe the school is great and a perfect fit for me.

Patricia

Felician University, in my opinion stands out compared to other universities I applied to during my senior year in high school. Just by the way the staff is very attentive, track out to you, help you as much as possible with whatever the case may be. Both campuses are very neat and clean. The professors and class size are the best. The good things is that you get to know your professor, and learn better when classes are reduced. Felician university is a great school, the main thing about the school is that it has great science professors.

Felician University FAQS

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell her to take deep breaths and try to smile even when you don't feel like it. College truly is a huge transition in life. You are going to meet different kinds of people than you are used to. You are going to be expected to complete more challenging assignments than you are used to. Try to embrace it as much as a can. Yes, it will be intimidating at first, but after your first real all-nighter crying, writing a difficult philosophy paper, it will be worth it. Afterwards, you will sleep like you have never slept before. Oh, yeah, and that A+ will be a nice addition, too. This will be the greatest challenge of your young life! Do not give into the stress of it all. This is extremely vital. Take your head out of that textbook once in a while. See all those strangers in front of you? Some of them are out there waiting to meet someone just like you. Hold on to that faith. So, show them that pretty smile of yours. Just like Mom always says, smiles are free!

  8. Describe your favorite campus traditions.

    My school is best known for its well-educated upcoming nurses. The reason for this is for the strictness of having a high GPA in order to remain in the nursing program. The nursing professors are very helpful and mindful of everyone which makes every student want to learn alot more.

  11. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    What I was not aware of at the time of acceptance was, although it was fairly easy to transfer into Felicain College, it was not that easy to obtain a position into the nursing program. In order to be allowed to start the spring nursing program at Felician you need to have completed your Science courses with a grade of B- or higher. Unfortunately, while I was taking classes part time at middlesex, I was working three jobs and received a C+ in all my science courses. Because my science grades were not the required A/B-, I retook them.
