Georgian Court University is amazing academic university, there's so many professor that has extensive knowledge of other subjects and are always willing to help .The Social work program is AMAZING,and once they have a MSW program there are going to be alot of undergrads applying for the program

John

I honestly love Georgian Court University. I love the nice and tight community where I know mostly everyone or are familiar with them. I also love how small the class sizes are which allows me to get more personal attention. In every class, each of my professors knows every student's name. I love how they are always available and are always willing to help students become better.

Katie

We are a nice local NJ school. There are obviously some improvements to be made but if you want a small community and a great education you will get it here. The professors really do care and want to see you succeed. There are lots of majors to chose from and many opportunities for internships/growth. Just be warned we are more of a commuter school so if you need lots of night and weekend life you have to go searching a bit. Also, a plus is we are right off the beach/Jersey shore so there is a lot to do in that aspect.

College is expensive and any free help needs to be taken.

When comming to this school I feel that it is imperative that the student set goals for themselves and have a clear idea of what they want to do in life. If you dont set goals for yourself you dont have anything to aspire to. Also it is important to be determined in order to suceed and see your goals accomplished. Setting goals, determination and a little bit of drive is what any student needs to suceed at this institute.

  16. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    The best thing about GCU is that it really is New Jersey's best kept secret. The campus has the best security--i can walk around (and I have done this) at 2 AM and feel completely secure--you literally have to call in your parents to the security gate. The campus is beautiful and when it snows, it looks just like a Christmas card. The professors actually know you by name and the only time you use your student ID number is when they ask for it in the cafe. I do have to be honest about what I don't like, though. When something is wrong in financial aid, you have to talk to someone at the top to get the situation resolved. They take away some of the scholarships they give you your freshman year when you become a sophomore because you are a sophomore. Financial aid, just like most colleges, is limited and need-based, which is most likely not going to change. Registrar is in one word: inept. It is pretty much the same situation as financial aid and they love to make you jump through a thousand hoops to get what you want. The process is very complicated and you have to make sure to pay attention to the fine print and the asterisks on your progress chart and major requirements.

  18. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    The most popular activities on campus are WILD and SGA. Since there are no sororities or fraternities, getting involved in programs are what will make the experience fun. I'm a commuter, but I have spent time in the dorms and people do generally leave their doors open. There is always the Back Porch Party, which is the thing to go to.

  19. What are the academics like at your school?

    All of my professors know my name. I'm a Communications major, so I have had the same two teachers as far as those classes go. My favorite class is Mass Media and Pop Culture. My professor gives us cool assignments and her tests are easy and she has a great rapport so all that makes for a great class. My least favorite classes were Math and Biology. I had a horrible Math professor who covered herself in chalk and who would ask the class a thousand questions to get to the answer she was looking for when we clearly did not know what she was talking about. She wasn't accommodating at all to the needs of the student either. My biology teacher played favorites and she was just boring--I spent every class (twice a week) on Myspace.

  21. Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

    None of the stereotypes are accurate. This is not a lesbian school and while I, personally, do feel uncomfortable with lesbian pda just as much as I do straight pda, it's not a big deal. We don't wear uniforms, although you can definitely tell who are commuters and who are residents. The commuters generally dress better for classes, while the residents are almost always in sweats all the time. Men do come to GCU, they just usually show up around 4 for the night classes, as per the rules. They can't sleep over in the dorms but they do show up for our parties. I am a junior and I have only had one nun as a professor--ironically, she was bad.
