From the first day I started attending Rowan University, I have loved being here. I staff are truly here to help and guide me through my education journey. And I have found a wonderful Christian club, called Chi Alpha in which I have found lifelong friends and grown in my relationship with God.
I believe it is a great local college for the people of New Jersey.
its a great school. I would recommend it.
Overall, It's a pretty good school. I finished two semesters there and 9 of my 10 professors were absolutely wonderful people I genuinely loved talking to. The social scene could be better at the University but overall its pretty alright still. I was in several clubs, both sports related and not. Made a lot of good friends, it was a blast. There is a huge selection of clubs and sports at Rowan. Academically, I have heard great things about several of the programs including engineering, music and writing. I should say, I have transferred out but it had nothing to do with Rowan, I simply had an opportunity and took it. I will never forget my 2 semesters at Rowan, it was glorious.

dont shut yourself in during the first year, socalize and dont be so uptight because its only one year and you can find a balance
Classmates are clever creatures with odd weekend habits.
The atmosphere. The people and the living areas are fun and exciting.
Rowan University is known for being one of the best teaching schools and that is the main reason I chose to attend it.
Construction creates problems in areas all over, but currently Rowan is under major construction. Traffic around campus is horrible, sounds of drills and trucks wake you up at all hours, and sometimes certain parts of campus are shut down due to it. I absolutely love Rowan so far but the ongoing construction is a huge nusance. Even though I understand that when it is done the university will be majorly improved, it is presently the one aspect I consider the worst thing about my school.
They should be driven and dtermined to work hard.
This school is thrilling in the sense that every day feels like an adventure to me.
Before I came to Rowan University, I wish that I knew more about financial aid. Over the semesters I have attended at Rowan, I have been offered no financial aid because the government says my parents make too much money. This came as quite a shock to me because my parents struggle to keep up with bills at home, which often makes me wonder how much a person has to struggle to receive government assistance for school. I also wish I knew about the various amounts of scholarship opportunities available.
In the past it was best known for teaching.
People who cannot grasp the concept of balance should not attend.

The beaurocracy associated with every university that forces you to get a bit of the run around when trying to get things done. While people can be very helpful, they cannot always answer what you need and you need to go to someone else.
The professors are Rowan are great. In my time there, I made connections with the faculty in my major and even members not within my major. They take the time to get to know you and make the experience that much more personal.
Best thing about Rowan is definitely the people. If you make the smallest effort to go out and meet people, you will. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Worst thing, would have to be parking.
Student University Programmers (SUP) and Greek Life
I guess so.
Rowan is in a bad neighborhood, not located in the safest town.
How has the economy impacted your life?
um...pretty self explanatory.
Many people go Greek but many people don't. They throw most of the parties and walk around in nothing but their letters, but they don't run the school or anything. Greek students are just like any other students.
