What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure to fill out financial aid a.s.a.p. And apply to three colleges at most at a time to make your decision through process of elimination.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you start looking for the right college early in high school. there are so many different atmospheres and college settings, that it is never too early to look for what is right for yourself. College offers you an opportunity to build on everything you learned from kindergarten through your senior year of high school, make sure you choose a college that allows you to push yourself to your limits and learn new and interesting things that will allow you to be successful in the "real world." You need to find the right balance both in your college life and in the atmosphere at your college. Sure college is supposed to be about expanding your knowledge and building a foundation for a secure and successful future, but at the same time you need to make friends and build relationships that will allow you to feel complete after you have finished college. Lastly, be yourself and learn from others, college is where you meet new people and are exposed to new things, don't let these aspects of college change you, but allow yourself to become more exposed to such differnces to better yourself as a whole.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who knows what they want to do with their life and is highly independent. This campus does not offer a lot of guidence for students and you have to figure a lot of things out for yourself.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When it comes to picking the best college for you, it is important to be sure of what type of person you are. I knew coming out of high school i wasn't ready to, just move away from home and go to a large school. I took the community college route, which is probably the first very good move I made. by doing this this allowed me to be sure the major i chose was the one for me as well as focus on the location of the school or university i would be eventually attending. Two years later i decided to go to Rutgers-Newark. i think this was a good choice. the school is honored one of the most diverse campuses, plus my dream of attending a law school is even close when i can see it out my window every morning. at the end of the day it is where you feel the most comfortable. choose a school where you wont mind living. not being stressed out because of your enviornment will help you adapt to a campus as well as your academics a lot faster.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Rutgers is a very diverse well known and well respected. There is good school sprite, with lots of school activities and school clubs. The only problem I would say is that there is the Rutgers New-Brunswick campus and people tend to think the Newark campus is a much lower level.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

take it very serious, should have fun but make sure to get your work done and get good grades.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If a student is not strongly pulled by a degree, they should go liberal and make sure all the core classes are done. I made a mistake by 'thinking' I was computer intelligent based on the fact that I use a computer everyday. So I took Computer Science, and long story told short, it was a bad experience and ended up recieving close to no credits for that semester. So take the core classes that will transfer to any degree.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is the parking situation, there is no where to park. They have 2 parking decks and 1 parking lot that I still dont know where it is. If one doesn't get to school more than 1 hour earlier than their class, they will be driving around for an hour until the parking deck opens up.

Rutgers-Newark is an excellent stepping stone for a bright future.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Go with your heart. You're going to want to attend college somewhere you will love. College will be a miserable experience if you don't enjoy the location. I made the mistake not going out to visit the college campuses of the schools I applied for and trusted the websites and brochures. At the same time, you want to look for something different, because by doing so you can find out more about yourself. It's a very important decision to make because you don't want to risk losing credits by transferring to another school you think better suites you.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I think type of person who shoudn't attend this school is someone who is afraid of tying something new. I moved to New Jersey from California and living in Newark has been quite an experience. It's close to the city and one has so may options to pursue.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My best advice for students and parents about finding the right college is to take a campus visit. There is nothing comparable to actually seeing for yourself what the campus is like and what resources the University has to offer. Once you feel that a college "fits", go for it! I initially felt at home when I first stepped foot on the campus at Rutgers Newark and to this day, as a Junior, I still feel this way. To make the most of your college experience I also definitely advise students to dorm, at least their first year. It's a wonderful and memorable experience. Your first year will most likely be your best year so take advantage of living on campus and meeting new people! College life should not need to feel stressful all the time. Starting college means leaving high school drama or bad experiences behind and starting off with a new clean slate. Take advantage of all the school's resources. The tutoring services, free health clinic visits, career fairs, cultural events are all free and there especially for you! Get your money's worth by doing everything you can to make your college years unforgettable!

What's unique about your campus?

The diverse student population because you become more open-minded and grounded with all the different views everyone has.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the tuition rates. They are way too high and financial aid should be higher.
