4 College Senior

Diversity: There is no beating the amount of diversity in the tristate area. On campus there are people of different colors, religions, sexual orientation, etc. The only downside is that people tend to fall into cliques that hold similar beliefs, which leaves many people left out.

5 College Senior

Campus Dining: Dining on campus is great, side campus trucks are even better. Price varies where you go, but the options are amazing. There are food trucks that sell Greek, Italian, breakfast. There is a subway on campus,and you can get pizza and smoothies. Very great. For those who get book vouchers but have money left over, you can use your left over voucher credit to purchase food at the dining hall!

Off-Campus Housing: Because NJCU is located in a city, there are many places one can rent to commute to school. I would rather rent off campus then live on campus housing because the campus housing facilities look horrible. They are right on the busy street, there is no availability, and cost is high. However, renting is also expensive. Unless you have a full time job while going to school full time, renting is not affordable.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I honestly have no opinion on the sports. I never really hear them being talked about.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The campus is gorgeous on the outside. Every building is different. But some of the older buildings have bad classrooms that need renovating. Also the one thing that can improve the campus is getting new desks for the classrooms. That itself can improve the campus tremendously. Also,campus activities need improvement.

2 College Senior

Academics: I love my major, but many people tend to know very little about marketing and have little interest in class. It's unfair for those who want to learn and hope for a great career. The work load completely depends on the professor and the class. Some professors take it easy on the class and only want classroom interaction with no test, only after reading 2 chapters. But, many students take advantage and anger the professor, who them increases the work load and starts to include tests. I've seen it happen a few times before. Also, internships are VERY hard to get. You have to get in well with an adviser or professor, and even then its very hard.

3 College Senior

Academics: There is generally alot offered at NJCU. Professors are diverse and you have a chance to change classes if you do not enjoy the professor, the curriculum tends to vary between classes and professors, but is pretty much the same. Registration is VERY easy. And Again, work loads vary upon professors and majors.

1 College Senior

Nightlife: There is literally NOTHING to do on campus. It's pretty boring. Many people commute here so with such few students dorming on campus, there are not real parties. However, there is a light rail that can take you into Hoboken and New York City. People tend to party there.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: Unless you're going to be a teacher, it is hard to get a career from solely having a bachelors from NJCU. You would have to then go to a graduate school at a better college in order to help in getting a career. There is not much communication or networking on campus because any people fall into cliques. But, I hear the career center is great.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I rely on using ratemyprofessors.com when determining which classes to take with certain professors. Many professors really do their jobs poorly and don't help students in need. But there are some gems that really do create that memorable college experience. There are many classes offered on campus and its very divers. However, the class styles tend to be very laid back; a urban type setting would best describe it. Also, class sizes are small and intimate, which helps for a better communication between students and the professor.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: There seems to be many safety procedures that are flashed and talked about but not much implementation. For instance, the " security guard" at the gate just lets people in without carding anyone. It's just for show. The area is said to be dangerous at night, so I bring pepper spray with me to class. You never know who you can meet walking down the halls on campus, or if someone could be hiding in the bathroom. Its kinda scary.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Guy and girls on campus are average on the aesthetic scale. But its because many of the girls and guys tend to be a bit trashy, it brings down the attractiveness factor.

4 College Senior

Majors: I do enjoy being in the Business program. It is something that I love to do, the work load tends to be heavy and relies on your knowledge, but i enjoy being pushed to learn more about my career choice.

3 College Senior

Majors: It was an OK process, yet there is no real guidance or direction done by advisers. I had to do a lot on my own

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Tons of restaurants around the jersey city area. i dont recall any student discounts.

4 College Senior

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: it's too expensive, and the food is not that great compare to other colleges.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: It is very quiet, sometimes. Is either some event going on with the Greeks, or just students walking either to class, their dorms, cars, and just going home.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far everything has been good.
