My school is best known for their education program and their engineering program. The school's name was changed from Glassboro State to Rowan University due to a donation made by Henry Rowan guaranteeing that an engineering school be built. That donation was a $100 million donation. Along with engineering, Rowan University and TCNJ have been in competition for the past few decades as to which is a better teaching school. While TCNJ was the original teaching school, Rowan's educatiton department has surpassed that of TCNJ in the past 50 years.

While attending Rowan University, I would say that we are most known for our education and engineering based majors. I am currently a Health and Exercise Science major with a teacher certification. I am proud of this because of the fact that we are well known for the teaching major. Also, I believe this school is best known for how comfortable it makes the students feel. Orientation was very appropriate and allowed the students to meet one another without being shy and let everyone become very open to one another.

Rowan University is most known for producing high quality teachers through a dual major program. The program requires intensive practicum and field experience for students to hone their teaching skills. When they graduate, students have a Bachelors degree both in Education and in the core curriculum content area of their choice, a certificate of eligibility to teach, and experience with resume writing and interviewing with local school principles and super intendents.

Our school is know for its education major program. There are so many students taking up education/ secondary education. It is a very competitive field although, and there are requirements along the way to continue in the program. Almost all of the majors here have minimum requirements such as GPA in the field of study to continue in the field, acceptance to the university does not alway guarantee acceptance into your major either.

I love the education program here, in addition to the engineering program. Due to Rowan's interaction with different schools for education majors, the students with education majors are able to view their future work environment without jumping in without any knowledge of what education is all about.
