2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Camden is one of the most dangerous cities in the country and you can see criminal activity all around campus. I was scared to walk alone at night and I wouldn't want to go back there.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Rutgers Camden is not the best school to go to. It's okay if you're a commuter but definitely not if you want to live on campus. It's dangerous all around and it's just not worth the amount of money that they charge.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is career services on campus, but not enough to help every single student reach their maximum potential.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Most Greeks live in run down houses and it's really no big deal if you join or not

2 College Freshman

Academics: not a good curriculum or process.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It's okay. At first it'll seem exciting and tasty but it's really just average.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The teachers vary - some are interesting some are not so interesting. Use ratemyprofessor.com when choosing them. It helps a lot!

3 College Sophomore

Academics: It seems like everyone is a psych major so the classes are huge! If you like lectures, you're set. If not, well, this isn't the school for you anyway.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I grew up here so I've basically been eating at the same places for forever but if you're new to the area, it's very nice and varied.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are updates on local crimes which is always a nice feature but not much crime happens on campus. It's easy to feel safe here.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It depends on where you live but in general housing is okay. The process is a hassle but if/when you get into a dorm or apartment, the experience is pretty good.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: There are many food options but not too many for vegans.

3 College Junior

Academics: This depends on what school you are apart of at Rutgers.

4 College Junior

Academics: I thoroughly enjoy my major and the professors.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It really depends on where you live on campus to decide the strictness.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are crime alerts but not enough to feel unsafe.

4 College Junior

Diversity: This school is extremely diverse in all categories.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greeks are a huge part of the University but there are too many here to keep track of.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Everyone loves to participate in the sports activities whether it is playing or watching.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Many food chains but not very healthy.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are houses available but they are not that clean sometimes.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: We have many bars and restaurants near us but not too many other attractions.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm not too sure about quality of employers or alumni work, but I do know that the career center/services are always there to help make decisions and that there are countless internship possibilities.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lecture halls aren't that bad, especially because the professors are more than willing to help you if you have a problem. Most students in my opinion don't take advantage of the office hours, but they should because that's when you can have your one on one with the teacher. Also you are more than welcome to ask questions after class.There are so many classes to choose from it's unbelievable. It's easy to get lost of what you want to major in, but of course you have a guidance counselor that is there to help.

Facilities: The student centers are awesome; places to study, eat, and play all in one spot, and there is one for every campus. I guess Rutgers love to conserve greens, which is one reason why it's so beautiful in many areas. There are also PLENTY of traditions and campus events. Campus events are posted everywhere year-round, and traditions....well I haven't been there long enough but I know there are a lot. Student hangouts can be made almost anywhere, and athletic centers are great too.

The courses are tough at Rutgers. TAs mainly don't speak English, and you can never find a parking spot. However, despite these things, after the first week of your freshman year, you realize Rutgers is different than other schools. Diversity is definitely something that makes Rutgers stand out-the friends you will meet at Rutgers will make you realize that you like Indian music and Persian food, and
you'll go to friends houses during their Jewish holidays. Students will learn to live with all different people, despite different backgrounds, and smile and laugh the nights away in the dorms.

It is a very large university, and professors won't realize or care if you are failing a course. However, students remark that they wanted to attend a large university because it makes them grow up. At Rutgers, no one holds your hand as you pick courses (and there's 4,000 to choose from), and they don't make sure you are taking the courses necessary for your major. Everything is done by the actions of the students. If you want real life experiences instead of a college resembling your high school, you'll find it here.
