What is your overall opinion of this school?

Montclair is a school that has a lot to it. There is a lot of inclusion and the campus vibe is really a great thing to be a part of. The facilities are also amazing and the building are beautiful. I find that there is always something going on and the school provides many ways to become aware of those events and opportunities. The school is fantastic and I really do enjoy going to school at MSU. The only thing that could make it better is if it wasn't so cold in the winter because of the elevation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

To start off, I would like to begin with stating that adjusting to college was very difficult in the first half of the semester; however, once I have started to relax - I began to enjoy the new world that I have entered. The campus is beautiful and not that large to cause someone to feel overwhelmed, and the quad that we have is a nice place to hang out or do homework when it is warm outside. Additionally, since there are thousands of people attending this school, it really is not that hard to meet people; also, because majority of the class sizes are no more than 50 students, it is easier to make friends. Plus, one has many opportunities to talk to their professor because classes are smaller, and professors are always willing to help their students through email or their office hours. The campus is also pretty close to NY city, in which students can take the train right next to campus to explore NY or have a trip there (good for internships as well). Though, it seems that school spirit is pretty dull - especially when attending a few sports games and such. People are not really paying much attention to the games, but instead are just on their phones. Also, sports games are very similar to that of high school sports games; for example, we do not have huge stadiums or courts, and timings of these games are exactly the same. Extracurricular activities (or events), are also not popular, so students will not attend these things. Mind you, this may be the case for 85% of the school's population happens to be commuters. Another huge con about MSU is trying to connect with financial aid; they never seem to answer the phone or they take forever to answer your call.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

montclair state is a very good school, they try very hard to keep us engaged and interactive with one another to build a very warm and cozy campus. They should keep up the good work! i sometimes wish that there was more to do on campus so maybe that would be one aspect that they could brush up on a bit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school. The professors are very helpful and make it a priority to help you succeed. I am in the business school and could not be happier with my choice. A minimum of a 3.0 is required to transfer to the school of business. I love the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Beautiful campus. However since it is a state school, freshman enter with their friends from high school, thus making it hard to make new friends. Other than that, the school does a great job investing in its facilities. They do emphasize the arts though, which is great. The school is not competitive, academically, so if you're looking for a laid-back college experience, I suggest coming to MSU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like MSU! Very beautiful campus and location. The students are great and professor and staff are easily accessible. Very same environment, emphasis put on keeping students safe any time day or night. Diverse, open, and accepted community. There is something for everyone at MSU. There are many majors and programs that students can join and find interesting. Tons of extra curricular activities offered, over the weekend trips, even transportation to of campus locations. Amazing. happy to be a student here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like Montclair State University because of the academics and the student environment. I've learned so much and I've only been attending for a year. I also like it because of the social life. Overall, it is a really great school... on the contrary, the cost of attendance is really high.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like MSU, the campus is huge about 200 acres I believe. There's a lot of buildings, the ratio of students to teacher is good, I like it. The student body is diverse, people are generally nice. As I commuter, I would recommend live on campus if you can especially as a freshman. If not than your social life over there is slim. Overall I like MSU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I toured this school on an open house weekend. The guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Montclair State. The campus seemed really big. I think a bicycle might be a good idea to get around. The views of NYC from the dorms was excellent. I liked the idea of being close to the city without having to go to school there. There seemed to be lots of things to do on campus. I am eagerly awaiting the opening of the new communications building. I will be applying to this school.
