5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Getting financial aid was hard for me because neither my mom or I knew what was required. The process was pretty confusing but we finished it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like the time that I have spent here. I wouldn't mind if the school was a bit closer to schools like Rutgers for a livelier social scene but I am content with what Rowan has to offer. Classes have left little to be desired.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm not sure how reputable all of the degrees are from the school, however, I do know that the engineering name holds a lot of weight.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The nightlife here is what you make it. If you surround yourself with positive vibes and people that just want to enjoy themselves and have fun, you will do the same.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Since I'm not in a Greek Fraternity, I can't really rate how they move. However, they do throw big parties and have significant influences on weekend activities.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: You can always find your niche here. No matter what you're looking for you'll find a place with people to do it with you.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of convenient options from a bar/wing place to a newly opened Pizza Hut and 7-Eleven.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Depending on the time of year, the parties could be amazing or they could be horrible. The worst part about house parties is when they either make everyone stay quiet until the cops leave or they shove everyone out the back door

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I haven't gotten into any classes for my major. From what I hear, as long as you stay on top of your work and don't procrastinate, you'll have a pretty easy time.

College Sophomore

Academics: It all varies depending on what courses and teachers you have. Some classes you'll end up teaching yourself everything if you want to have a chance at passing. Other courses, the teacher will give you everything you need and answer an questions you have.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing process was horrible this year. Almost 500 students left without housing I believe. Once you were in it wasn't bad. Very easy to choose your room and roommates. The freshman dorms are without a doubt the worst on campus. The best are the apartment buildings, but they are the most expensive and the farthest from campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school does have many rules, but they are all enforced by the RA. If you have a very lenient RA, then you can get away with just about anything. If your RA is strict, then it's better to just follow the rules instead of trying to sneak around them.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many different races around campus. If you ever walk around late at night, you'll hear many people outside discussing their different political views. For most people, you can tell when they have more money than someone else, because they aren't complaining about how much student debt they have. No one is afraid to embrace their sexual orientation. They will walk around hand in hand with their significant other just like everyone else, and most people wouldn't even think twice about it.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: From what I notice, there are many people who attend the games and sporting events here at Rowan.

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There's so many different types of guys and girls. Looks, personality, dress, and social life, it would be hard to give them all a general rating.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: the school is very diverse. does not favor any specific person.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: it is a dry campus, and police are very aware of things going on.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: its a small town, that is around the school. its a nice place

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: my dorm was clean and a nice size for me and my roommate. i enjoyed it

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: the food off campus isnt too far and most places let us use part of the meal plan

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: students have many places to choose from, and mots places are good

4 College Sophomore

Academics: the programs get very specific and the teachers work well with the students

Rowan University is more than you'd expect from a New Jersey state university. With a student body of close to 10,000 students, the University is a great size—it has a close-knit feel, but you'll still probably meet someone new every day. With a nationally acclaimed engineering program, the University attracts some of the best and brightest. The Rowan experience exists far beyond the classroom though. On any given weekday night, there is always something to do. Whether it’s a University-planned event, bingo at Rowan After Hours, or a fraternity party, there is something for everyone.

Rowan is home to a humble student body, so if you put yourself out there, there's a good chance you'll meet some of the greatest friends you will ever make. As far as academics go, if you put in a lot of work, you'll get a lot back. The professors genuinely care about the students’ success and often encourage everyone to share their opinions in class. Projects, including the addition of the Rowan Boulevard Apartments and the Cooper Medical School, prove that Rowan is looking to grow from a state school of regional interest to a nationally recognized university.
