3 College Sophomore

Academics: William Paterson has a good variety of classes to take as well as some study abroad programs to China and Italy that i know of however there may be more. The art program, which i am a part of, is pretty good. Teachers are willing to help you if you put in the time and are willing to help you outside of the classroom as well as within. Getting into classes and paying tuition bills are a nightmare however as the financial aid office is extremely disorganized unfortunatly.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am an art major and am relatively happy with the art program at William Paterson. I have not yet had an art professor that i did not get along with and learn from. As an art major i am permitted use to an off campus building specificially for the arts which is the best part of being an art majot. Having our own secluded building gives us the opportunity to work at our own pace at all hours and creates a great community among students.
