3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Its pretty good, but you kind if get tired of it by the end of the semester.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I've been to a few and I had a good time. I think its good way to meet other students from campus.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I never had to be involved with how strictness would affect me.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I know we have it, but I do not really participate.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Having good math scores on SAT or ACT helped with my major. Most important was the rigors of my High School classes.

College Sophomore

Majors: I just finished my freshman year so I did not do an internship yet.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is diversity, but I feel everyone gets along.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: It's more laid back and not too intense. Everybody is happy.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It is small town/suburb and there is shopping around. There are also some farms and vineyards too. Not too far from Philadelphia or Atlantic City.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is friendly and accepting of each other. Thats what I really like about the students.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It looks like they are close to school and the choices seem fair.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: They seem to have strong teams that do well in their conferences.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It was harder than I thought and I'm glad that I'm being challenged.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They have a carrier center to go to so you can get advise.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: During the day I feel very safe on campus, but once it is nighttime I rarely walk alone. There have been sexual assault incidents and drug deals, and campus security seem to only notice after it happens. There are lots of security officers, on the other hand, which is why I still feel somewhat safe at night on campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: A lot of my friends received scholarships or grants for good academics, but I did not, even though I got A's throughout high school. However, I think the reason I didn't get considered for scholarships was mainly because when I was an incoming freshman, I had a late (March) audition for the music program before I was accepted into the university.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's mainly burgers, Chinese food, and pizza. But there are some good places to go to.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: They throw awesome parties, but it's not for me. I considered rushing a sorority but I don't have that much time and money to dedicate to it.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It's a college, so there are going to be rules. The rules are there for good reason, but students are expected to be drinking so underage drinking is not much of an issue. Rowan police, or Ro-Po, are annoying though. You WILL get a ticket if you park somewhere you're not supposed to, or past the designated time limits. Also, noise complaints from neighbors are the main cause of a house party host getting ticketed or the party getting shut down. So when the hosts say to quiet down, if you want to keep partying...quiet down!

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of hot guys and girls. Everyone seems to be sexually active, and it seems the majority of students (at least the students living on campus or near campus) drinks and/or smokes. Lots of skateboarding between classes. I've heard riding a bike to class is "uncool" but I don't agree with that nor do I care how others like to transport themselves to where they need to be.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Do not have personal experience to give about off campus housing, but friends who lived off campus enjoyed their stay and said it was much, much cheaper than being on campus. Campus Crossings seems to have especially good rates and proximity to campus, but apparently the area is not as safe as the campus and I've heard the landlords there are extremely nosy and annoying.

4 College Junior

Facilities: I love this school. All campus buildings are relatively close together and easy to get to. I have not experienced more than a 15 minute walk, taking my time, going from one class to another. Also, this school just developed a great nursing and engineering program, which makes the school more prestigious and known.

Public facilities and buildings are always kept very clean. Messes are cleaned up instantly by staff, and staff is all very friendly in my experience.

I also like the volunteering program at the school. They provide transportation, and the program I am most passionate about is the animal shelter. I loved it so much I became an official volunteer! I would have never thought of doing it if it weren't for the program at Rowan.

5 College Junior

Facilities: The social scene is amazing. There are parties almost any day of the week, but Thursdays and Saturdays are always the best. It's a great way to unwind from the stresses of class, exams, and the week in general, and also to meet new people. It is genuinely a good time.

The library is a great place to meet up with people to study or to do a group project. I also like doing my work alone there, as I feel like with the quietness and the nature of the library I tend to get more done in less time.

I usually work when major campus events are going on, but the RAH program events I've went to have all been clean, safe fun in my experience too!

4 College Junior

Diversity: In regard to economic background, political beliefs, religion, and sexual orientation, the campus is extremely diverse. You will find all walks of life walking through campus when looking at these properties. However, with racial diversity, it seems that the majority of the students are Caucasian.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The rooms and buildings themselves (at least for the dorms) aren't much to brag about. They are small, but probably an average sized dorm room. It is also very expensive. The people around me in the dorms, though, are what made it all worth it. The community and nightlife are amazing, and I have made some of the best friends in my life through these dorms. Because of that, I highly recommend putting out the money and sacrificing some space for the best experience of your life!

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.
