What is your overall opinion of this school?

I do not like Rutgers University-Newark one bit. I am currently a sophomore, and am applying to transfer in order to get out of here as soon as possible. the campus is awful, from the location in Newark to the dingy, filthy looking buildings, the Newark campus screams the word "ghetto." Furthermore, athletics are not highly emphasized, seeing as it is a Division III school. During my past 2 years here, I have also found that the lethargy of the students is matched by none other than the teachers, and nobody seems to be too happy to be here. Perhaps this is a good choice as a safety school for some, but I would never recommend it as a top choice; this school is below par and I would advise you to perhaps try out the much more highly acclaimed New Brunswick campus. Lastly, this school has been a tremendous burden on my family financially as well. We've had to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket due to high tuition costs along with a financial aid office filled with employees that seem like they hate their jobs. Overall, the energy at this school was awful, and I cannot wait to get out of here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have lived on-campus at Rutgers University-Newark for a couple of months but it has quickly become like home. Because this is one of the most diverse campuses in the state, I have no trouble fitting in. Being a minority woman I had always struggled with fitting in especially in places like college. There are so many people that come from everywhere and you start to wonder if you are the odd one out. Being at Rutgers, there is no place that makes me uncomfortable I could walk around on campus without worrying that I look like a fool. I already come from an urban area and I was very hesitant that I would feel comfortable in a new setting, however, this is the perfect place to be. Even the professors make me very comfortable. There is something about being in Newark which sets the tone for the campus. They are not afraid to show their minority pride. The school has many clubs and opportunities for students to get involved. I myself personally have got involved with the on-campus pantry which helps students to get groceries for free. This campus is all for inclusion and it is nothing but love and support all around. I don't think I could even comfortably visit another campus because of the fact that Rutgers Newark has everything. I also think even after my Bachelor's degree, I would want to get my Master's degree from Newark as well which is what I plan to do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rutgers University-Newark is located in the downtown area of Newark, New Jersey, near Pennslyvania Station. Overall the downtown area is a great place to be, but there tends to be a lot of traffic during certain times of the day. Off-campus there are things such as the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and Branch Brook Park's skating rink. In Newark, there isn't much to do, so you will usually hear about students going to New York. On-campus there are always events going on. A good tip would be to follow the program board's Instagram account to keep up with the events. Students are very active in the community and are always open to making new friends. If you are not staying in dorms, you must put yourself out there because nine times out of ten, everyone will know each other either from dorms, organizations on campus, or previous schools. The professors are always willing to help you as long as you do your part in the process. If you need help, the tutoring center and writing center is almost always open.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rutgers University-Newark is often looked down on because it is in an urban city. I am now a junior and can confidently say I appreciate the school. I have never exerpienced school pride, but when people ask about college I can answer enthusiastically. I am comfortable and see major growth in myself pshycially, spiritually, and socially. And throughout this painful journey, I have always had someone to confide in. I would recommend any college seeker to seriously consider Rutgers-Newark.

Rutgers University provides many services that make it easy to navigate the campus, enjoy recreational activities, and help the students whenever there is an issue. They give us credit for food, and for books. The atmosphere at Rutgers is comfortable and enjoyable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far, I believe that Rutgers University-Newark is a great school. Although we are not perfect, no other school is either. I am only a second year student but the things I have seen here are great. The professors are wonderful and helpful and there are so many lovely staff members. This place is a diverse, fun, and loving place where everyone is welcome. Every office comes with educated and helpful staff members who want nothing but to see you succeed. Rutgers Newark is a home for those who don't feel like they have one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My over all opinion of my school is that that it’s welcoming and challenging. Professor, coaches and other employees always push you and encourage you to go hard and strive for the best because there are people who don’t have the opportunity to be in school like how we are. The financial aid office isn’t helpful at all, I tried many times to get some sort of grant to help pay for my tuition and I didn’t receive anything. But other than that the school is great, athletic are good (I take part in them) and academics are well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school, happy I have chosen it, because quiet frankly I don’t know what would’ve been a better school for me! In addition, there programs and curriculums are very well rounded, and even though the newark campus is smaller than the new brunswick i feel more comfortable at the newark and I feel closer with the community

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as if this school is good academically and offers great opportunities due to its environment. Since it is very close to the city it allows you many opportunities to find a job and for internship. But also it has its cons. The campus life is not the best because it does not offer the convince that New Brunswick offers but that it makes up in opportunities.
