5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone at the school is very friendly and willing to always lend a helping hand.

3 College Student

Guys & Girls: From what I can see, women on campus are very diverse. Like myself, most of them are commuters. It is not as easy to build a relationship amongst peers when almost everyone commutes. However, people that I have talked to have always been diverse in personality, with different interests and hobbies.

3 College Student

Athletics: As stated before, Kean is a commuter school. I only caters minimally to other aspects in my opinion in comparison to other universities.

College Student

Majors: I have not yet had an internship. I would like to have an internship as soon as possible. Nothing beats hands on experience in your field of study.

College Student

Majors: I have not yet been admitted to my program. I am still taking general education courses. My grade point average is 3.81, giving me a very good chance to be accepted. I plan to significantly bring this grade point average up in the upcoming semester.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The class sizes are phenomenal. The courses offered are all taught in their own unique style depending on the professor. I personally have learned a lot from every single class I took.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: For the degrees that Kean offers, they hold great value. The school has its weaknesses, but when it comes to offering quality education, you cannot go wrong with Kean. The tuition prices are beginning to rise though. This makes me weary.

College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I don't really eat around union. Weight training and working out are a huge hobby of mine, and a huge part of achieving maximum results is to cook your own food and bring it around with you. This way, you can ensure you are eating healthy by avoiding unwanted ingredients, and save money by both buying and cooking in bulk.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Kean is mainly a commuter school, so the campus life is something that you will need to search for and get yourself involved in, as opposed to many other universities where it is very easy to get involved in many activities.

4 College Student

Academics: Kean has its faults, but the classes and professors are both top notch. While Kean lacks in many of the luxury related areas such as nice dorms, huge campus fraternities, etc., the education is still great. I learned a lot from every class I have taken at Kean. Registration is sometimes stressful.

College Student

Academics: I have yet to switch into my intended major, which is physical therapy. I have completed thirty credit hours so far, and the education was top notch. I can definitely feel the difference in myself as a person before I completed these credit hours.

1 College Student

Scholarships: I have gotten hardly any financial aid, and have even had to pursue loans from a private lender in order to ensure I can pay for me tuition.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: As a commuter student I am not up to date with how they handle residents of the university, however, I have been required to complete numerous alcohol and drug related seminars as well as sexual assault related seminars. These all enforced the strict rules and consequences regarding the topics.

3 College Student

Diversity: Most people I meet on campus are very accepting and open-minded.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: I am a commuter student, so I am not sure exactly how safe residing on campus would be. However, as a commuter, I feel very safe during my classes and during any activities I choose to take part in on campus. Campus police are present frequently around the campus.
