The Lindens are the average college housing experiences. Sometimes you can have rowdy suitemates who like to throw parties while you and your roommate lock yourselves into your room. This can lead to lack of sleep and very full bladders. RAs, in my experience, don't really do much. They'll come in and say, "Hey, keep it down," without any real threat behind it. Also they don't really care if you have alcohol even though it's a dry campus. Thermostat fights with your suitemates are also common. The Lindens are convenient because they're right next to the Student Union Building, where the main dining hall is. They're also relatively close to the classrooms on the Teaneck side of campus. The classes on the Hackensack side are a bit of a walk. Occasionally, sororities/fraternities hold rallies or something in the middle of the night? But I'm usually up at 2 am anyway because I'm a masochist so it's not really a big deal for me. Northpointe is very nice. What first comes to mind is the relief of walking in to the beautifully temperature controlled buildings after the long walk back from lunch at the SUB in August. While rooms are more spacious than the Lindens and you don't have to worry about suitemates, it's a far walk to the SUB. It's pretty close to Jeepers but you have to pay/use flex money there.

Career fairs are pretty big on campus. Additionally, the career center is very sufficient as well. I personally believe that the value of a degree from this school is amazing; however the unfortunate portion is that it may not be as valuable to a firm that claims they will need someone with such degree and qualities that do actually fit their quota. Although that is the harsh reality with almost every college and the degrees they provide, the degrees from this school definitely serve their purpose somewhere.

The school ,academically, is great despite certain professors who I personally feel grade unfairly. The social life on campus has room for improvement since there's not much to do on this small campus. Be prepare to see squirrels, raccoons, skunks, and cats roaming around on campus. The cafeteria food is not that desirable but will get you past the day. Jeepers , which is another place where you can eat besides the cafeteria, is similar to a pizzeria. This is the best food you will receive on campus, other than that prepare to order food on a regular basis!! During the weekends, the campus is almost completely vacant.
