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

4 College Senior

Academics: I have had some wonderful professors in my experience at college. Many of which have pushed me even more in my desired major of an educator. The registration process has been very easy, we are able to do everything online, but before hand I always meet with my advisor to discuss what classes I should be taking to keep me on task. My workload is very heavy; considering I work full time as well as go to school full time, I am up very late completing homework and papers all semester long. At William Paterson, there are many different study options, there is free tutoring all semester long for students who need extra help. In addition, they also offer opportunities for students to study abroad, which is an amazing experience.

3 College Senior

Academics: I am an elementary education major with a minor in literature. I find this to be difficult because I only have an education advisor who is trying to guide me with my literature minor as well. These advisors do not know much about everyone else's minor, therefore it is misleading. So far in my major I have been in and out of classrooms, observing other teachers. This is extremely helpful because it allows me to learn hands on.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Many classes are outdated, and not correctly giving people a path of the future.
