Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

I would have to say that the number one reason I chose Montclair over other Universities was because of it's beautiful and convient campus. The school also allowed freshman to park a car on campus. Unfortunatly that option no longer exsists because of the high commuter rate.

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

Visit any and all colleges that your thinking about attending! Nothing beats seeing the campus, dorms, and classrooms better then seeing them in person, online pictures can be deciving! Be sure to make friends! Introduce youself to the people in your classes or on your floor (if your dorming). Most people are very ready to make new friends, don't be shy. Try and keep a positive attitude in everything you do. If you have the mind set that something is going to be to hard, or take to long, it probably will. Don't procrastinate! College gets busy and if you leave one thing behind, everything that comes after will be behind too. Watch what you eat, the freshman 15 is no joke! Take advatage of the recreation center on campus if you have one. Keep intouch with friends and family back home. It's easy to get caught up in your new life away from home. Attend events on campus, they give away a lot of free stuff. Balance studying and partying. And make sure you leave one day free of classes, (if possible) to comit to work. It could take a whole day to write a paper.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any student who is thinking about becoming a teacher or an art major should concider Montclair State University. Montclair is a blue ribbon school for obtaining a teaching degree and is very involved in the arts. I wouldn't recommend Montclair if you don't have a car and plan to be a resident on campus. I'm beginning to feel that Montclair has a higher population of commuters so it is dead on the weekends. If a student is looking for a medium size school with a beautiful campus in a safe area Montclair is the school for them.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

This past year, bomb threats, 100 year anniversary and the school newspaper being shut down by the student government.

Someone who wants to get involved or likes a friendly campus environment.
