At New Jersey City University (njcu), we're not just students and professors but were family. We tend to look out for each other, urging one to succeed. Students not only have throughout our class rooms but outside of lectures as well, where we can build up the hearts and minds of individuals.
This is going to be my second year at this University and so far it's good. There's a lot events that goes on and keeps students active and able to participate in many things. There's a variety of clubs to join. Overall, I like it and can't wait to see what it's store for this semester.
New Jersey City University is a good school. However, there are room for improvements. There are a lot of events on campus but a lot of people do not go to them. Most students just wants to go to class then leave. It is a very diverse campus and have many renovations going on such as the new business building and a new science building. Professor are nice and are willing to help you out.
Great school very underrated though, its not the greatest but the professors are good and always ready to help or suggest. Its mostly a commuter school but as of recently with a new dormitory opening the school has many new dorm students. The dorms are very safe, some could say a little too safe but overall enjoyable.

never be afraid to take chances. College life is scary but stay focused on the vision and we will be fine. What's most important is for you to stay focused on what you want and not whats best for everyone else. Everyone will have hopes, wishes and aspirations for you but follow your initial desire. Your instincts are awesome.
Open, upbeat, yet very comformatble and close even though its in an urban environment.
The lack of motivation among students. Many are receiving scholarships from the government and being given a chance to overcome difficult circumstances through education, but they throw away their chance. Many students would rather party than study and then wonder why their GPA is a 1.5. The faculty is good and some of our departments (i.e Education) are very reputable within the state, but students, typically undergraduates age 18-22 do not take advantage of that.
No one knows how to speak proper english. Professors have to spend too much time catering to those who don't care about education, which negatively impacts those who are there to learn. I don't fit in with the "ghetto" crowd.
My classmates have goals that will be achieved.
I love the diversity at my school. Everyone is different through their religion, culture, where they are from, and the way they dress( to name a few). I am able to meet and understand things going on in the world and around me through networking with people from all over.
I wish I had known that my campus would have been so empty. There are not that many people to sociolize with.
NJCU is known for its "come back." Once a particularly undesirable school, now NJCU is popular for reaching out and offering wonderful opportunities through its partnership with Brookdale's (a 2 year county college in NJ, far away from jersey city) Communiversity program; and at reasonable tuition prices. Adult students, people with families, and distance learners now have the opportunity to earn a degree from a great school. NJCU has expanded from North Jersey to the South, opening the door for many individuals.
The unique factor that NJCU had over other schools is the diversity. There are people from all different backgrounds. I also think the money and the surrounding of NJCU made it a competitor to other schools in the area. NJCU is located 15mins from New York City where there is hundreds of opportunities. The tuition is less then 80% of schools in this area.
I believe, that anyone who does not have the desire or aspiration to obtain knowledge, should not attend any college. Let alone, attempt to register or enroll in any classes, without the motivation or dedication that is neccessary in gaining a college degree. They need not apply. You have to grab a hold of your future and decide if college is for you. I believe knowledge is a good investment. If a person does not believe in investing in knowledge, then he/she shouldn't attend college.
When I talk about my school I brag about how there is a club for everyone, there are always activities and discussion groups for just about any thing.
I feel that any person in state or out of state could attend New Jersey City University. I feel that anyone who would like to go to a school in an urban setting can definently attend NJCU.
