Rutgers Newark is a great school for people who don't like big campus. There are always school events happening everyday and its a great way to meet new people. Rutgers is very diverse and welcoming. Yes, Rutgers Newark is located in a semi dangerous place but when you go there it doesn't feel like it. You also have NJIT right next door so its like going to two schools for the price of one.
I believe Rutgers - Newark is a great school to attend because of its academic curriculum, its cultural diversity, the value it places on scientific research, its professionally renowned and celebrated faculty members, and its commitment to the community the University is housed in.
Rutgers Newark isn't that bad, but you definitely cannot come here and expect what I would call the "stereotypical college scene" like movies and really elite schools like Columbia, or even more city based schools let on. I usually walk by myself during the day, but because RU-Newark is a densely populated urban area it is always wise to bring people along, especially at night. Other than that the school does kind of have a high school feel to it because once you make friends you're either with them all the time or with their friends as well and the term backpack school goes for every college I guess because college students tend to do more on tuesdays and thursdays and head back home on the weekend or use the time to unwind from the week.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Rutgers University-Newark is 65%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Please chose a major that you can easily utilize in the workforce-teacher,nurse, engineer. Please have fun but look long term ttowards the future. College lasts four years but the decisions you make have lifelong affects.
Rutgers at Newark is a consolation prize, that students ironically buy, for those not intelligent enough to pursue their goals and dreams alone.
Rutgers Newark has been called the most diverse campus for the last thirteen years, so I think someone who is not open to differences among students should not attend this school. The university has a lot to offer in many different fields, but if your not willing to take your initiative to take advantage of them you might want to attend a smaller more focussed school.
Rutgers-Newark is best known for the campus diversity. About three in every four people here come from a different ethnical background. Meeting people from different backgrounds has given me an edge because I feel I have received insight that I would not have been able to gain elsewhere. My school produces students that are well-equipped for global competition due to the diversity of people and therefore diversity of thought that is found on campus.
A student that wants to meet new people of different backrounds. A student that prefers a smaller school over a larger one in respects to both student body size and campus size. A student that lives close to the school, because dorming here is too expensive. If they had the opportunity to dorm they should have went to Rutgers - New Brunswick. A student that likes nice teachers that actually want to help the students learn instead of the trickery that goes on in other schools. A student where everyone on campus is friendly and eager to help a fellow student.
Rutgers is known nationally.
I feel that my school is extremely diverse and it is a reflection of the United States today which is people from different countries all coming together.
My classmates are all intelligent individuals that are friendly and helpful. They are also very diverse.
I wish I had known we were going to do so much case studies and group projects. After all, that is what college is all about; however, due to the fact that I was attending a small community college with little group projects and no case study to do, I was under the impression that college can be a walk over until I came to Rutgers University. It is more challenging and I wish I had known that, because I could have been more prepared so I can meet all my expectations with ease.
The worst thing about my campus is the lack of involvement in programs put on by student organizations due to the fact that so many students are commuters.
Many students are either part time or full time while working jobs, and these students are not always fully prepared for class, making class move slowly.
The diversity of students.
The school has most diverse pool of students. I would like to change some of the professors.
Well this is a little bit difficult to say... I think the biggest one is that we are not smart. Yes, we are not main campus Rutgers, but not everyone WANTS to go to main campus. Me, for one, got accepted to main campus, but did not want to go there. Rutgers Newark has a world full of resources for Criminal Justice than New Brunswick does, and I didn't want to see a million people that went to my high school, just about every day in college. There are a lot of smart people on campus, so no, the stereotype is not true that people on Newark campus are not as intelligent.
Academics are pretty good at Rutgers Newark. If you want to learn, you will. Most professors are very friendly and easy to approach. Since I am, what most would consider, a nerd, I sit up front in most of my classes and participate a lot. This allows the teacher to have interactions with me and get to learn my name. If you are a student that is not very interactive with lectures, the teacher will most likely not know your name since most classes are a little on the large size. Even though classes are large, there are always opportunities to participate and be active in classroom discussions.
There are several fraternities and sororities on campus that are pretty popular. I do not personally belong to any of them, but I always see fliers around campus or people wearing their Greek labeled sweatshirts. I do however, belong to quite a few honor societies. These honor societies are pretty active and stay involved. As for the dorm life, I am not really sure since I am a commuter. I heard that there are a lot of activities and such on campus for those who dorm, but I'm not sure.
I love my classes. My first two years I got most of my required gen-ed classes out of the way. My third year I took a lot of classes in my major, which was so much fun. I made friends since most of the people in my classes were in more than just one. The majority of the professors are super friendly and are willing to spend time with you if you need help. They have what are called office hours. During that time, you can drop by their office and they will spend time with you answering your questions. This is a nice time to get to know the professors since some of the classes are in lecture halls and there are a lot of students in them.
There are two libraries on campus. The best one to get work done is in the Law Library. Even though you are technically supposed to be a law student, just as long as you are not talking and are not obnoxious, no one will say anything to you. The Dana Library is also a pretty nice place to get work done. In the quiet room, there are nice comfortable chairs to sit in and there are even booth-like tables to spread your work out on. I've spent many hours in that library typing up last minute papers and studying for numerous exams!
