What is your overall opinion of this school?

Twenty-five years ago my parents left their family, friends, and life behind to start a new life in America. They left their homeland so that one day their children could have a better life and live up to the American Dream. They came to America as immigrants and started off with just 100 dollars in their pockets. My parents began to work hard starting the first day they stepped foot in this foreign country; working long and multiple minimum wage shifts daily. Their struggles have such a great influence on me that I go above and beyond with everything I do in life. I started doing more research on Rutgers, like the academic and job offerings after graduation. Rutgers is ranked 56th in the Nation and has one of the best engineering programs! Rutgers will give me a strong education and experience I desire for my future career. Higher education is beneficial because I believe it can shape me into the person I want to become and cultivate me as an individual.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Rutgers University-New Brunswick is high. I do believe Rutgers is a great school. They offer so many resources for students to take advantage. Professors are always willing to help. So far, all my professors I've had are wonderful. They really do want their students to succeed. Some classes can be really large but once the student begins their main major courses, the classes become small. The school campus is huge. There are many clubs and organizations to become involved in extracurricular activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Rutgers-New Brunswick is a great school overall. It is a school where you can have a great academic experience and learn how to be an independent person. I know people that have been to Rutgers and I hear all the time how it gives you such a great experience academically. Not only can you learn from this school but I hear that campus life is great because of how great the environment is and on campus everything seems to be so easily accessible. There are restaurants where you can eat, theaters to watch movies, and you can even workout on campus and not have to worry about going off campus. But even when you go off campus there are other activities you can do. So I feel as if the environment as a whole is great because of its convenience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school but could use a little more diversity. The campuses are very big and the interactions with professors are encouraged. Professors are also great depending on which ones you get. But overall I think Rutgers New Brunswick is a great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending Rutgers as an undergraduate was one of the best decisions I've made in my life! I do not look back at my decision and I encourage all high school seniors to consider Rutgers as one of their choices for their undergraduate applications! Go on a tour - that's what made me make my decision.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very open and accepting campus. I always feel safe and welcomed everywhere I go. The class sizes are quite large for the freshman courses but the higher up you go the less people you have in your class. Teachers are available almost always during their office hours and are very willing to help a student out. The sports programs here at Rutgers are very important as everyone is either watching the college level games or playing recreational/club sports. Overall, I believe Rutgers is one of the best colleges I have been lucky enough to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The most important things, academics, are high quality. Classes range from big to small, but professors care and try to get everyone to be involved. Class goes over subjects thoroughly, and you'll succeed if you have the work ethic. Classes are what you make it to be. Physically though, there's 5 campuses so it's a big hassle getting around, the food is a bit low. I've heard students enjoy their housing, or sometimes have major issues with it. Ideally, I'd prefer one high quality and large campus, but they manage to make it work with the setup that they have.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rutgers is one of the most diverse universities in the entire state. No matter what type of person you are and what you are into, you will always find a group to be around and spend time with. There are plenty of clubs and organizations to get involved with and plenty of other activities to partake in during your free time. The academics aren't so bad either!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy being a Scarlet Knight. WIth a large school there are so many opportunities to find what interests you. Despite having 60,000 students, I rarely feel overwhelmed by the size of my school. This may be do in part to the fact that New Brunswick is split into 5 campuses: Cook, Douglass Residential College, College Ave, Livingston, and Busch. Each campus has a different feel, giving students options to find which campus suits them best. For me Douglass is my favorite campus because it offers the strong bonds of a women college while still being part of a large, world renowned university. Douglass feels removed from the the hustle and bustle of New Brunswick, providing women with a green campus to recharge after a long stressful day. Academically, Rutgers is a land of opportunity. Rutgers Professors are highly acclaimed in their fields, relatable, caring, and easy to reach. Many will go out of their way to help a student in need if the student reaches out to them. My only complaints have to do with the administration, bus system, and food. The administration is faulty at best, finding ways to get over on every students at least once during their time at Rutgers. The bus system needs work. Buses are crowded during peak times because there simply aren't enough buses. The weekend buses, winter session buses, and summer buses are terrible. They have 2-4 buses doing the entire bus route (all campuses) which means they they are very infrequent. The weekend buses are not only infrequent but overcrowded. The food is hit or miss depending on which campus you are on and how much extra money you are willing to spend. There are two vendors which cater to four dining halls: Brower, Busch, Livingston, and Neilson. Brower and Busch share one vendor while Livingston and Neilson share another. Each year students complain about the food at Brower and Busch but rave about the food on Livingston and Neilson. One would think that the administration would get the hint and use the one good vendor for all four dining halls. Yet nothing ever changes. Rutgers has a 2030 plan to redesign the campuses. Hopefully with the changes on campus there will be changes to fix all of Rutgers internal problems. On another note, school spirit and extra-curricular activities make Rutgers an great place to spend four years. School spirit runs high at Rutgers. There are an array of activities from sporting events, to bed races, and old traditions which work in unison to spark pride in all students. There are over 400 organizations and clubs at Rutgers. This leaves room for every student to find something that interests them. While it is a large school with partying and greek life, not everyone partakes in those activities. Students can chose their own path at school. You can completely separate yourself from partying and be studious, finding joy in learning, clubs, religious organization, research, etc. Or you can work hard in school and play hard on the weekends. Rutgers offers so many opportunities and different paths that it would be hard not to find something that suits you. Overall, I like Rutgers. As with anything in life, Rutgers is not perfect. However, there are so many opportunities presented at Rutgers that not many other schools offer which make Rutgers a great place
