What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a freshmen I was worried that my transition would be difficult but it turned out to be much smoother than I thought. The environment there is very productive. Everyone is helpful, students and professors alike. You are invited and encouraged to participate in everything regardless of how good or bad you are at the activities/events. The food is great. The only issue with this place is the chemistry department but its livable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Though I am only a freshman, I love my school. At Montclair, students are determined to accomplish their goals and everyone is so supportive. It's one of the most diverse universities I've seen so far and it makes me feel incredibly comfortable there. I can truly be myself, without having to worry about side stares or giggles coming from the corner. I will admit, I was a bit skeptical about becoming a Red Hawk because most of my friends in high school had not applied there. But looking back, I'm so glad at how things turned out. I have made more acquaintances here than I did at throughout my four years at high school. If there's one thing I love about MSU, it's definitely the people there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a big campus and a lot of things to get involve with. There are a variety of food which are located all over campus. There are also many options of majors and minors to take on. Many different people from all over are also enrolled so to find to your kind of friends/groups should be easy.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Montclair State is honestly what you make of it. Since this is a dry campus, people usually drink in their rooms or go off-campus to frats and clubs in order to get lit, which can get pretty expensive but fun if you have the right friends. If you don't like to party, it's not hard to find like-minded people who you can hang out with and still have a good time. People sometimes say the school doesn't host enough campus events, but I think it's pretty moderate---during finals week, the school brings in dogs and farm animals to pet and play with, midnight breakfast, fraternity and sorority step shows in the quad, LGBTQ+ events, and more. There really is something for everyone at this school, and Montclair greatly emphasizes diversity. For some reason, a majority of students live relatively close to the school so a lot of kids go home for the weekend, but like I mentioned in the previous paragraph, if you have a solid group of friends it's really not a big deal and you can find something to do. The food itself is pretty good; Dunkin' Donuts, Chili's, and Panda Express are the most popular places people like to get food and my personal favorites as well. The quality of the dorms honestly just depends where you live---if you live in Bohn, for instance, expect not to get any AC, but if you live in the Heights you get AC, your own personal bathroom, and a pretty living space. It just depends, like with any school. I think the academics are fine; this school is fantastic for education, nursing, and music majors, and you'll definitely get the hands-on help you need from the staff. And contrary to popular belief, a lot of people are involved in Greek life and they can honestly greatly enhance your experience at the school. Overall, as with college in general, Montclair State is what you make of it, and I've enjoyed my time here thus far.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before applying to colleges, my last option was Montclair State. As crazy as it may sound, if I did not apply to Montclair State, I might have regretted my college experience somewhere else. I absolutely this campus and everything in it. I have been to lots of campuses, whether it was for siblings or friends or just college visits. In my opinion, none amount to the comfort I have when I am on the MSU campus. The people you meet here are incredible, the diversity is great. The amount of help available academically is endless. I would not think twice to apply here like I did. And it is a college education you can afford! Apply and enjoy!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first got on campus I was pretty overwhelmed by so many buildings but the campus is large little by little I learned more about places on campus. Their is a variety of students here melting pot... which I love because I haven’t had that with other schools I’ve attended. The professor I had for jus204 was awesome it was a lot of reading n writing but I learned n retain most of what I’ve learned. I’m happy to have chosen MSU as my school

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion about my school is that Montclair State University is a beautiful campus and very populated. The campus building's architecture is extraordinary and unique. The campus's environment feels very safe and i do not feel at risk while walking through campus. Even the trees and the plants that they have planted throughout the campus the whole area beautiful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly love MSU because I am comfortable here and it does not seem overwhelming or intimidating. There is more than enough events and extracurricular activities going on. In addition, the students are not snobby or mean for no reason. Everyone is really welcoming and non-judgemental which is rare to find at a University. Everybody either minds their own business or is really kind. I really could not have chosen a more perfect school for myself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Montclair is a good college. Great academics and the professors are amazing. The dorms are alright. Only 2 are nice but the rest are older. The food isn't the best so I usually bring food from home. The campus as a whole is beautiful and I am happy that I picked MSU
