Rutgers University-Camden Top Questions

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


The parking lots get filled really quickly, so be prepared to search for a spot!


The worst thing about our school is its location. We are located deadcenter in the most dangerous city in America, Camden. You can't go very far from the campus because of how dangerous it is, unless your going to Philadelphia. You can't walk around past sundown by yourself or something bad is bound to happen to you. Even during the day you should be with someone or atleast in sight of people.


The worst thing about my school is there are other locations. Those other locations are further up north. Sometimes you get ahold of people up there when you need help. The thing is they can't really help you because they are not at this campus location or who you would need to get ahold of. If you do try to get ahold of someone from this campus you may not always find someone.


How the roads flooded when it rains. You could barely drive or get to class.


That there is only one cafeteria.


In my opinion there is not anything that stands out to me as being the worst.I really like my school and thats why i selected it.


The worst thing about my school would have to be the communication with new students. Once I transferred there, so many steps had to be taken in order to be eligible to attend, but most of them were requirements I had no idea I needed to fill. Whatever department was responsible for obtaining that information never contacted me and if I had not taken the innitiative to ask questions, I might not be going to school this semester.


My school is incredibly small. After one year on campus, most of the faces I see are familiar. In a few years, I'm not going to be able to meet anyone new.


Not enough faculty to cover all the courses needed to graduate as a music major.


Financial aid department. It takes a while for awards to be applied to bills, and they don't mail out the bills anymore (everything is online). Having payments apply to your account often takes weeks. I've known people to have non-need-based scholarships offered to them, and then revoked because they're "receiving too much financial aid." With the cost of living, no "aid" is too much, so that's extremely unfair. Also, the website can be hard to navigate if you don't know what you're looking for.
