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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My first experiences at Montclair, I already knew this was the place for me. There are millions of academic opportunities available so if you are undecided, you will definitely find something you are interested in. The community itself is all inclusive to all genders and all persons. There are so many opportunities to get involved and stay connected even if you live on campus or are a commuter.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, it is a nice hippie school but there are definitely better ones. There is constant construction on campus that really interrupts the flow of going to school here, and the administration is a nightmare to deal with. Stay away from on campus dining, they've had multiple bug infestations at Sam's Place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Montclair State University is a college that has everything there! They have the housing, academics, and clubs but they aren't the greatest. This school is average in every aspect and sometimes even under average! Professors are available outside of class, depending on the professor. Certain departments and athletes​ are more favored and they have more of an advantage when it comes to academics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as if everyone has some type of love and hate relationship with someone or something. You know what I mean? And that relationship, is what I have with my school. Being someone who is from the city (NYC), and noticing how clean it is, the reactions and the attitudes of the students here are extremely genuine and positive! The professors are pretty flexible and sweet. Overall the campus has extremely diverse amount of people which always reminds me of home, the city.
