What is your overall opinion of this school?

Despite being a State school Montclair offers its students every opportunity to get involve and has a very active campus community with loads of organizations and activities always happening. Teachers are generally available and from my experience, they are dedicated to their work and the education of others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The classroom sizes are 30 students to a teacher, for most of the classes. That way, the teacher knows the students and are accessible in their respected hours. Also, the advisers are there for you and helps you when you need it. I wanted to change my major and my advisory helped me with that. Every major has their own group of advisers and they even encourage students who don't have a major.

Montclair State University is a wonderful school with many resources, state of the art facilities, and great student life. I personally recommend that people join Greek Life as that greatly enhanced my college experience. Great support systems are always available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Montclair State University is a great school for incoming students looking to find their true self. College is where you find yourself and figure out who you are through many experiences and situations wherever you are, but Montclair State University is a catalyst for growth. It pushes you to learn more about different types of people from all races and different walks of life. It is a stigma-free campus so you do not have to worry about being judged when you first come in. There are always events going on during the weekday and weekend to keep you entertained and give you a break from academics. It is also a huge campus so there are different facilities everywhere such as the dining halls, the student center, and the popular student recreation center where you can workout, watch movies, or have a nice swim with your friends on a hot day. College will always be what you make of it, but Montclair State University pushes you to make the best out of your college experience and I love it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Montclair is a school for artistic people, specifically performing arts, and entrepreneurs. The school is not strong in STEM and I would not recommend attending the school for something such as that. The people are exceptionally friendly, but the academics are weak (most students cheat). The administrative offices are not helpful and the food services staff is on average pretty rude. The food is not very good and expensive. The buildings appear nice and maintained but the humanities and arts facilities are abandoned and falling apart. Regardless, my opinion of MSU is positive due to the great friends I've made; it's all about the people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I don’t even know where to start at Montclair. I was a transfer film student at Montclair and was only able to stay for two semesters. The department didn’t tell me I would have to take 3 or more years to finish my degree. When I asked for help on my schedule, to speed up the graduation process since I’m not financially ready to take 3 or more years, it was a STRUGGLE. I went to Stephanie Wood for help and she quite literally shut the door on my face. When that happened, I went to my advisor he didn’t help either. At the end of this semester, I decided to enter my film into the Student Academy Awards and needed my teacher (who was also my advisor) to answer some questions for them. The academy emailed him twice. I emailed him three times. Then I had to email the director of the department to help because I was going to be disqualified. Thankfully, he was professional and very helpful. This morning, I received a NASTY email from my teacher/advisor. He asked why I didn’t put his name in the credits of the film for “thanks”. Mind you, during the whole semester he called me out in front of class every single day just because I decided to get a jump start on my film. As a person with severe social anxiety, this was terrible to endure. I had panic attacks every time I went to his class. Hence, the reason why I didn’t say thank you to him in my film. In my opinion, people like him aren’t fit to be teaching; those who are both passive aggressive, sometimes full on angry, and those who enjoy belittling others. It’s hard to grasp how he treated me and others this semester. I am completely and utterly shocked and disgusted at the unprofessionalism of the University. I am very glad to say that I will be transferring out of this college for next semester.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very good school. Since I'm an incoming freshman into the school and have been given multiple chances of seeing the school, I know that this was the place for me. I would recommend this state public school to everyone and from everyone I met they were awesome and very helpful in my transition into my undergraduate years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Montclair State University has always been my top choice to further my education. The campus is one of the nicest I have ever seen, and I am happy to call it my home for the next five years. The teachers are always polite and respectful towards their students, and they make themselves readily available to assist them at all hours of the week.
