Daniel

The visual arts program at Rutgers is known for its amazing faculty, who are all well-versed contemporary artists and contributors to the current conversation in the art world. It is an aggresively growing school, recently having been ranked in the company of usual big names (Columbia, VCU, Yale) and the student work coming out of the program is just as ambitious as the professors teaching them.

Patricia L

Rutgers is known for the Scarlet Knights and being one of the oldest colleges in America. It's a wonderful research school. Also, it has immense school spirit and their campus is filled with life and so much atmosphere.

Grease trucks, football, rutgers buses, giant student population and being everything that Nj represents. Rutgers is New Jersey! It is a fun but hardcore school where everyone parties hard but studies hard as well. Pretty much to survive Rutgers you have to venture to a grease truck at some obscene hour of the night, attend a football game where you only see red (in a good way), people watch on the buses as you travel between class to class on one of Rutgers 5 different campus and notice the intense divirsity of the students who come from everywhere!

Adrianna

Rutgers is not only known for its prestigious sports teams and marching band, but it is more locally known as the largest university in New Jersey, as well as as a prestigious research university.

Kintan

Other than its parties, Rutgers is very well know for its Pharmacy program, and it will soon be know for its Engineering program. Rutgers is making an honest improvement and growth as becoming one of the top schools in the nation. But I think aside from academics is the community feeling that Rutgers gives to its students, especially during football season. I ever never felt so proud to be a Scarlet Knight on game days. Everyone is so friendly and they all reach out to you. Regardless of how big it is, Rutgers still instills the value of family.

Since I started here, Rutgers became very known for its athletics. The university has a very good football team and very good basketball teams (it is particularly known for the women's basketball team. ) The football team has gone to a bowl game every year for the last five years, and the basketball teams have gone to championships and gained a lot of publicity. The teams also bring in a lot of school spirit; football games often sell out and the student section is usually full.

Urooj

Our school id know greatly for the kind of education if offers. The fact that it turned down and offer to become an Ivy to provide students with a cheaper and more accessible educations is amazing. Rutgers, although it may be large, gives you an opputunity to find a great group of friends from its eclectic selection . The Rutgers Football team is always surprising, thus it retains a reason to always be at games. Their education, environment and athletics makes it the college that I have always dreamed of attending.
