3 College Junior

Weather: The local doesn't affect campus experience unless it's flooding or there's a snow storm that shuts everything down. If there's nothing like that then everything runs as normal. If there's an outdoor event and it starts to rain the event is usually moved to the rec center.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Unless you follow the teams schedules online you will not know when and where anyone is playing, unless by word of mouth or someone in a dorm organizes a group to go to a game.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Newark Museum of Art is right around the corner. It is not advisable to be out and about at night. There are many small clothing and shoe stores around the campus and for sports and entertainment the Prudential Center is a few minutes away.

3 College Junior

Academics: Political Science major workload is not that bad, lots of reading and writing but manageable if the student doesn't mind copious reading. There are lots of internship opportunities as long as the student makes time to research these opportunities and/or go a career fair.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It is very strict in having visitors as you have to sign them in and the visitor has to have a photo id. Also the visitor cannot come into or leave the building without you.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Most times the drugs cannot be seen. If someone is smoking marijuana, you will most likely know someone is smoking by the smell but probably won't see the joint. I know one of the housing buildings allows alcohol because the students there are supposed to be 21 and over.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing is based on age and year. Freshmen are all in one dorm, unless they're 21 and over. The dorms are generally clean but students have to provide their own cleaning supplies. The housing process is easy now, before there were lotteries that had to be drawn as to who will receive housing. Every housing building also has a computer lab/lounge though not all the computers or printer may be working at any given time.

3 College Junior

Computers: A lot of the labs have been closed and the open ones location, aside from the library, are unknown to some students. The network reliability and speed are good, but it's difficult to have wireless access on smartphones in some locations.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There is transportation but the surrounding area is dangerous and not advisable to be by yourself at night

5 College Junior

Diversity: This campus is the most diverse campus in the country

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many restaurants around campus are usually expensive, costly, and low quality. It's also inconvenient to go off campus dining.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Many computer labs around campus are full throughout the afternoon, but more available early in the morning or late at night.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are occasional thefts, robberies, and shootings near campus but there is a strong security and police staff around 24/7.

4 College Senior

Diversity: This campus has many cultures mixed together!

Majors: I probably would not, I enjoy Biology, but I am not as fascinated as I was years ago.

3 College Senior

Majors: There were no difficulties, but the faculty was not as helpful.

2 College Senior

Weather: The snow removal took too long and parking was limited.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Most restaurants close early, and tend to be close during the summer

3 College Senior

Computers: Wireless connection tends to give some trouble most of the time
