Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

The perfect choice for a kid who maybe doesn't know what they want but is eager to learn.

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

The advice I would give is no regrets. My first choice for college was too expensive to go to since I did not get a scholarship. I used to regret not working hard enough in high school so I could have gotten that scholarship. But the choice I made to going to Rowan university was the best decision I ever made. I made so many new friends, joined a fraternity, played club soccer, got involved in two clubs and am so far enjoying every minute of. Living with regrets only hold you back from reaching your full potential. If you want to make the best of your college experience, just be yourself and have fun. You need to know school comes first and play after.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates (especially those in my major) are optimistic and ready to work. Most are hard working but seek to have an equal balance of their social life but are more than willing to work very hard.

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

Decide for yourself. Don't worry it is natural to be nervous. The first year will always be hard, a part of you will always miss home. Parents don't be overbearing. Students don't forget about your parents they love you very much. Make good choices. Students- its ok to party once in awhile its usually unaviodable in college-life but keep your mind on your work. Focus! Get involved with your university and make the best of your college years (parents- let your kids grow up and enjoy the fact that they aren't completely grown up; they still need you.)

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The actual learning that happens at the school is wonderful, professors are more than likely fantastic teachers it is when students must figure out the paperwork that is frustrating. Some of my friends have had to run around several times to seperate departments like financial aid, regristar, bursars, so forth and so on. I feel like its the adminstrative teams that need to communicate more. And more funding for the arts is needed.

When you're in college, do not get caught up in everything around you. Have fun as much as you can, but do not forget what you are there for. You want to learn as much as you can and build your resume as great as you can to ensure a good job and life afterwards.

VISIT COLLEGES! It is the best way to best know what kind of school you or your children will be attending. If you have older friends who attend there plan an overnite visit to get the "inside scoop."

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Some one not prone to diversity.

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

Find a school that you are compfortable, not too far but not to0 close is key. Be ready to be open to new friends, new ideas, and new work. Stay in connect with your family, you will miss them and they will miss you. Dont let something that is bothering stay inside let your friend/roommate what is on your mind; communication is key. Be ready to work but do not work too much make sure you give you self the chance to relax or party at least once a month. Dont let partying take over your life, drinking and staying up will efffect you. Talk to your professor they are there to help. Take friday classes; they are smaller and they will help you graduate in four years. Stay on campus the more you go home the more you lose out one and you do not get as close to friendds/roommates.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

how much greek life was on campus, there were more then i expected.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The way the school does not promote a healthy enviroment

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

Rowan wasn't my first choice, but I chose it. I was accepted and offered money by my first choice school. Sometimes, you don't just have to think about how great a school or program is, but how great the school or program will allow you to become. Smaller schools can mean more opportunities. For me, it definitely did. At my first choice school, three thousand students were in my program versus three hundred at Rowan. I am an officer in three clubs and involved in two others. That would have been impossible at the larger school. There are two sides to every story; make sure you read them both.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I always say Rowan is the kind of place where you can't be twenty feet behind someone without them waiting for you to reach the door they are holding open.

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

South Jersey is a unique environment . Havng farms, peach orchirds, and woods can be calming and offers a homely feeling. Rowan students have a sense of pride unlike any other kind of students. Its small enough to give a feeling of familiatiry between professors and peers, but large enough so it is not limiting socially.

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

The best advice I can offer is to truly think about the location you want to spend the next four years. Take advantage of the oppurtunity to live somewhere new. It may be the only chance you can get to experience somewhere different. Hey it is only four years and no matter where you end up you can always find good people and new friendships!

What's unique about your campus?

Rowan location is it's best attribute. It is close to Philadelphia and to home. When you become tired of your scenery you can jet home or over the bridge into a more culturally diverse atmosphere. You can always hop in the car with your friends and venture out onto the back roads. There are tons of places to explore in Jersey for bored college kids seeking out adventure.
