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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Do not attend Montclair State unless for a specific program like teaching and musical theater. This school is terrible. The communication for financial aid or even just with professors or academic advisors is horrible and you need to go in person to resolve anything. There is nothing to do on the weekends because everyone goes home. The campus feels dirty and out-dated. When I attended there was a bug found in the food. The food is almost inedible. It is also freezing from October until March because the campus is on a mountain it is windy all of the time. There is nothing to do off of campus and you need a car to go anywhere considering it is basically on a highway. I would not recommend​ this school to anyone. If you are looking for state school prices go to Rutgers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you consider Montclair State University outside of the classroom setting, MSU is extremely diverse and has a lot of amazing opportunities to offer. They try really hard to create a stigma free campus and make everyone feel as if they're included in the grand scheme of things. However, I have a lot of issues with their academics and advising services and how hard it is to feel like you're a part of something while being a commuter at MSU. I have been repeatedly ridiculed for pursuing the major I am by advisors and professors. I have been constantly told that I will not make it within the STEM field almost every semester by my professors, except one. However, I am still pursuing a career within the STEM field despite the terrible things I have been told thanks to that one professor. In terms of commuter life, there is a club for commuters, however their funding to try and get commuters involved is very small and a lot of the events that take place on campus are specifically for resident students. The times fun events take place, I am either at work, home baby sitting, or just to tired to stick around on campus until 10:30pm. I am grateful I have the privilege to receive an education, but if I could go back in time, I would tell myself not to choose Montclair State.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a junior at Montclair State University and i like it a lot! People smile at you, professors here know you by name, your peers become friends and learning is fun and intriguing. Whether you scheduled for office hours or not teachers are always here for you. I know many professors i have had, i would need last minute help without scheduling an appointment and they would be more than eager to help. Learning here at Montclair State University is not just sitting in class and taking notes, its building a bond with a teacher who is willing to take that extra step forward to help you under various circumstances. its the staff and counselors who will make sure your at ease and not too stressed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Montclair State University could not be any more positive, from the faculty to the new and improved facilities they have provided for students. The campus is reasonably large and the faculty go out of their way to help a student succeed. I could not be any happier attending any other school honestly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In all honesty, I accepted going to school without seeing it. It is known as one of the best education/teaching program so I decided to attend. The schools has a lot of issues and constantly is sending people to the wrong place for questions. Everything is so expensive so for the administration to be this bad is frustrating. On a positive note, the classes are more intimate and the facilities are beautiful .

Honestly, I see why it's one of the best schools in New Jersey. There are a lot of majors and minors to choose from and the professors that I have ad so far are definitely qualified for their jobs. The people and scenery on campus is inviting and makes you feel welcomed to the university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a student at Montclair State University, I am extremely happy. Overall my ratings for MSU are pretty good. I think we have a great variety of extracurricular activities, and are very invovled in different organizations. If I were to suggest any changes to made it would be to offer more fresh, healthy, vegetarian food options. I would also suggest better parking.
