College Senior

Majors: You must maintain a 3.0 GPA average and I was first not accepted into the program

4 College Senior

Majors: I really enjoy the Education Program and I feel that William Paterson does have a great program for students in this major

2 College Senior

Scholarships: My bill was always screwed up on my account when it was time to pay my school bills. I think that was partially the schools fault though

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I generally liked the people that I met at college. Not every person you meet is good but I enjoyed who I was surrounded by

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms really are not anything special. The apartments have mice

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I don't fear for my safety but I definitely travel in a group

2 College Senior

Nightlife: The nightclubs are holes in the wall but close to get too so that's a plus

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is average, not super safe, not enough things to do

3 College Senior

Diversity: The school is extremely diverse. Sometimes a little too much

3 College Senior

Academics: There's many options as far a choosing a

major but again the staff is very poor

3 College Senior

Academics: Being an education major I feel that I am lucky because we have a much more reliable staff compared to my general education course professors

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: The staff for the most part is terrible and the advisors are even worse. I took at least three courses that I was advised to take by an advisor then found out I didn't even need them

for my major

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The worst part about the staff is that most of the students want to learn. Many of us pay for our own education and we are treated very poorly.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The campus needs a better student center and dining options

2 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life at our school is very different than other schools. Other schools is like the thing to do but not at William Paterson.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletic teams are pretty well know but we're only a D 3 school

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: This school has never offered off campus housing.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: There really isn't much Greek life.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Wayne is a city that really doesn't have a lot going on. We do have NYC about 30 minutes away though.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It could be better, we don't have a kitchen. The only housing available with a kitchen is the apartments.

College Junior

Scholarships: I haven't applied for any scholarships at my school.

3 College Junior

Facilities: It's not like wow! But the school is missing a few things. Like it'll be better to have more study spots that are quite. They should have better RA's on duty because the dorms get very loud!

2 College Senior

Scholarships: Financial aid is an ongoing headache. You have to apply and call them several times until you are hopefully helped out.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: Food on campus is not great. The dining halls are poor and not very nutritious, as for other places to dine, there is a Starbucks and Burger King. Many people do not purchase a meal plan and they choose to go off campus to eat.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus and I love it. I have so much freedom and I find it a lot easier to get my studying done in the comfort of my own apartment. The cost is pricey, but I have a roommate which definitely helps. My apartment is very close to campus and there is so much shopping around. In addition, there is a bus stop right in front of the apartment for easy access to transportation.
