I think the school is very inclusive and overall great. Of course it has its flaws but the good outweighs the bad! I really enjoy all of the club and sports oppurtunities the school offers. They also provide us with really healthy food alternatives to the traditional dining hall!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rutgers is a huge school with opportunities for everyone. Since there are around 40,000 undergraduate students, there are options for a wide variety of people: such as sports (including quidditch and rock climbing), Greek life, religious life, the arts, and academic rigor for those who choose it. The large campus feels overwhelming at first and the bus system to go between campuses is initially confusing, but overall I am really enjoying my experience on this massive campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school that has opportunities for almost everyone. There are so many clubs and organizations that it makes getting involvwed very easy. From what I have seen, the professors do a great job of being available to students who need assistance in their classes. Atmosphere is always positive and generally people are friendly around the campuses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! The campus is great and so are the people! The food can be better, but there are tons of on-campus eateries. The teachers that I have had are great and really teach you well. There are tons of opportunities and it is located in the center of all the major hubs (cities) in the northeast.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Rutgers is a great school. The students are very open and friendlier than I would have thought. I am currently a rising sophomore and I could not be more happy with my decision to come to this university. There are so many clubs and activities people can join and the academics are challenging but doable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Rutgers is a great school. Our academics are internationally known, our technology is constantly being upgraded, and we are provided an unlimited amount of resources. The dorms are average, with the regular rooms being not as renovated and are usually lacking AC. Even though we aren't the best at sports, our school spirit is great!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall it is a pretty good school both academically and socially. There are always plenty of opportunities to succeed and have fun while pursuing your goals. To be successful and make the best of your experience you need to learn to manage your time and find help, but you also need get involved with other people and attend numerous events going on on-campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like the school however the size of it can be a major turn off to many people. Having to take a bus to class gets annoying especially when there are late buses and rush-hour traffic. People from other colleges talk about getting up 5 minutes before class and still be able to get there on time. That is not an option for many people at Rutgers. You not only have to give yourself enough time for the bus ride​ but also the walk to the closest bus stop and the time it may take for the bus to even get to your stop.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rutgers may be characterized as a structural organization created to loosely represent the true and real society we live in but on a smaller scale. We have a total of 5 sub-campuses in the New Brunswick - each expressing its unique personality and taste of students, culture, and activity. Douglass is the home of the cows and nutrition majors, and notably is the only campus with the healthiest take-out menu. Livingston is buzzing with wealthy Chinese International students and the state of the art glass built business building with a convenient froyo and Starbucks cafe waiting at the corner. We have Busch campus, a haven for bookworms who study pharmacy and medicine who would always wish for more time in the day to cram 6 hours of lecture material accumulating more than 300 power-point slides per week. Finally, College Ave, where sleep is probably unheard of and instead traded with extended nights of alcohol and Khalid booming from basement floors. You will find yourself challenged to adapt to the enormity of Rutgers’ culture and liveliness. For optimal future success (professionally, academically, socially), you may be faced with certain barriers. But during my 3 years here I have found that even at a renowned public research university, Rutgers offers many opportunities for career networking in all disciplines and a variety of extracurricular for any student from any background. There will always be something to do on a regular weekday - which is the beauty of an all-inclusive college campus. I can speak specifically for the 4-year generic nursing program. It is not stellar, but it is good. There are changes to our curriculum track for incoming freshman at this time, so I will expect their academic experience to be exceptionally better than my graduating year. My program has become like family from day one and I fell in love with the supportive nature of my professor and clinical preceptors. Our classes are much smaller, now at around 80 students per instructor for one lecture hall. (Even 80 students may be too large for my own preference, I would like to have a class even smaller and in a more intimate environment.) The current faculty are always quite supportive and are willing to help students succeed here. It is easier to develop a relationship with them in this type of setting because we see them in clinical and in lecture, as opposed to a general Biology 101 class where you are competing with 300 other students. Walking into the Albany building on George Street, our labs are designated on the 3rd and 4th floors. Students are constantly meeting with professors and practicing with our simulation labs and mannequins. It’s quiet for group study sessions. A fantastic perk is the availability of a community fridge and microwave, as well as events of free food and activities by the Student Engagement team. I have one year of my academic journey remaining at Rutgers School of Nursing. Through the friendships and professional connections I’ve made, I will always be incredibly grateful for the educational opportunity I have received. At any college, it is certainly dependent on what you make of it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a great school but you can get lost very easily, I also think that there are hundreds of opportunities that need to be seized every day so that we can be successful and I think Rutgers is the perfect place for that. I have learned the first year that I have come to Rutgers and I hope to keep learning in the future​.
