3 College Sophomore

Academics: It's college so it is not going to be the best experience regarding school work. Also, professors are helpful sometimes. Truthfully depends on major and classes.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Its a lot of workload but Rutgers does have an International standing and it definitely lives up to it.

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 Sophomore

Academics: I like the biology major at my school, although I wish that some of the core curriculum requirements would be changed up to reflect the major. Certain core requirements are of no benefit and are frustrating to take.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I learned a lot in my classes. Sometimes my peers weren't as motivated, but if you find like-minded people, the classes will become that much better.
