2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: If you choose the nicer dorms price is too high. If you choose the cheaper dorms the quality is too low. Housing is never guaranteed either.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Well I don't really want to say anything positive about Rowan, but they didn't manage to mess up financial aid. I received the amount of money I deserved and the process was fairly simple

3 College Freshman

Weather: Its okay weather. A decent variety but more on the cooler side than anything else.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: It's a D3 school so athletics are nearly nonexistent and pretty useless. The gym is kind of nice though.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Glassboro is an awful, dirty, dangerous, ghetto, and drugged up city. I'm sure you can extrapolate with that much information.

College Freshman

Greek Life: If you haven't noticed it by now, I really do not care for the drinking and partying aspect of college so I don't know anything about the Greek Life. I'm sure you can do all kinds of "fun" and illegal things though if you join.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: It's sad that people look into schools just for their parties. Well if you want to party and not to learn then Rowan's your place to be. There's ton of underage drinking and a myriad of illegal substance abuse. The bar often let in underage kids too.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's college. There are drugs, alcohol, and parties. Rowan doesn't really seem to be trying to stop them though.

2 College Freshman

Academics: Work load is to be expected. The professors are next to incompetent. The Electrical and Computer Engineering program, for some odd reason, puts a lot of focus on subjects you wont be using at all like Chemistry. Also, did I mention the professors are next to incompetent?

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Glassboro is an awful town plain and simple. The only time you notice it on campus though is when people come back hammered from parties.

3 College Freshman

Majors: It aggravates me to death that they grouped Electrical and Computer Engineering together. I would have loved to take Computer Engineering alone and not have to deal with the Electrical Engineering part. It was a breeze to get in though. They really should raise the standards for admission.

2 College Freshman

Majors: The professors so far have no idea what they're doing. Any learning I've done has been on my own time rather than in class. I somehow still managed to maintain a 4.0 GPA, though I cannot say the same about others.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Overall, Rowan's WiFi is decent. The computers available in the labs are out of date but they work just as well as any new ones. Printing is at a fair price plus students are given printing credits so it really isn't bad at all.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I don't really use the transportation but I've heard it's decent.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Some of the computers are out of date and wireless can be slow

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's a lot of information to share in order receive financial aid. Most of the time, I am not offered the financial aid I need.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I got nearly a full ride in scholarships. It was easy.

Nightlife: I have no idea I do not go to parties and all that jazz.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I have no idea really as I have always lived on campus.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I went to a football game once. It was very cold but fun.

3 College Senior

Computers: I rarely use the campus computer since I have my own.

4 College Senior

Weather: Its the weather. What more do you want. Carry an umbrella when the forecast is for rain.

3 College Senior

Transportation: I do not know as I stay on campus for the most part.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The new health and wellness center is beautiful and clean.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
