What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rutgers is a great school. It is widely known. The area of New Brunswick is a little sketchy, so it is important to be cognizant of your surroundings, especially at night.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rutgers University is a very good school. It was the only school I applied to because I had no interest in enrolling anywhere else. I think you get great education for a "fair price." Although tuition is not inexpensive, Rutgers is still a more affordable option when comparing to other Universities. Professors are qualified and passionate about their work. You can also see a lot of diversity, which is great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Upon first glance, Rutgers University-New Brunswick is a sprawling, largely unattractive University with a disorganized bus system. But to me, Rutgers immediately felt like home. Your college experience should not be about how long it takes you to get from class to class or how new your dormitory is. Unless you are in the Honors College, your freshman year dorm is probably going to be dated. Following your freshman year, you will experience the Housing Lottery which will probably not get you into great housing until you are a junior or senior. As for dining, Rutgers has a fairly flexible meal plan. You get a certain number of “swipes” per semester which you can use one time at a dining hall or for a specific amount of money at cafes. The dining halls themselves are tolerable but the cafes offer fresh food and much more flexibility in what you can use your swipes for. What makes Rutgers so great are the students. There is always something to do at Rutgers from club events, festivals, and, of course, parties. The students are immensely enthusiastic about everything you can think of from politics to Quidditch. The football team is horrible, but we love to go to the games anyways. There is a place for you at Rutgers, whoever you are. Also, Rutgers has fantastic academics. I received a world-class education at Rutgers and the name has great recognition. I live in Florida now and employers think Rutgers is an Ivy League school. Yes, the class sizes are big especially for Gen Ed class such as psychology, calculus, biology, and chemistry. But once you enter your major-specific classes later, the class sizes become much more manageable. Furthermore, the professors are always open to a conversation and have generally been very helpful. As for the buses, you will get used to them. They can be a pain but it’s all part of the Rutgers experience. Rutgers epitomized the perfect college experience. I made great friends, learned a lot, and did some stupid things along the way. What makes Rutgers so special is not in the bricks and mortar but in the amazing students and experiences. To me, Rutgers will always be home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Rutgers! It might be a big and overwhelming school when you look at it, but when you get there it feels a lot smaller. Joining organizations and getting involved on campus (there's always something to do!) makes the college experience as a whole so much better.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Diversity. If I could sum up Rutgers in one word that would be the one. There is just so much here. From the people, the clubs, the majors, there is literally nothing you can't do. Here at Rutgers you're going to find people from all walks of life, people who seem to have insane interests and weird hobbies, to those who are as basic as they come. No matter what you're going to find what you're looking for here. There is just so much this place offers, you'll never have to doubt if you're going to fit in. I guarantee you, no matter how weird, how awkward, how scared you are. Rutgers will become your home just how it's become home to 36,000 others.

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.
