Kean University has a lot of different clubs to join and events to go to on campus. The thing that makes my school unique is there is a lot of diversity. For example you won't just see one type of race, you will see a mixture of different races. My overall experience at Kean University is okay and the reason why i say that is because on weekends it can get a little boring.
