4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I truly enjoyed my freshman year at Kean University. College is a completely different experience than high school. Living on your own, attending classes at your own chosen times and not having to wake up at 6 A.M to make sure you are on time like in high school. Being able to eat when you want and as much as you want, and leave campus when you want were huge changes. The professors are nice and helpful with all your assignments and are always willing to give you an extra day or 2 if you are running on a paper and the students are friendly whichever part of campus you are around. All in all, my first year at Kean was memorable and i am looking forward for what the next 3 have in store for me.

Overall Experience: It was not my top choice school, I had to go there because it's the most affordable for my father.

Overall Experience: Since I've been here its all but great, Even though the admissions is rough here and there. I love it here and many others will too

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: As far as getting an education in the graphic design field or just any creative field at Kean University I think was one of the best choices. Financially, location wise and the quality of education you receive really makes up for the value of what it's worth. We have professors who have years of experience in the field of graphic design, interior, and industrial. A lot of the professors besides teaching at Kean have a side job which either involves being and entrepreneur, freelancer, authors like Rose Gonnella whose written plenty of books on the art of graphic design.

The professors are really there to help you out. Even if they don't have the answers you're looking for they go out of there way to contact professionals to find the correct solutions. I think that's what a real education really involves. Getting to the core of what you're going to be living as you chose the career you want. They will help you find what kind of design works best for you and what you're passionate about and fuse them together to create a new form of idea or style. They don't keep us in the dark when it comes to the kind of environment we will be facing out in the real world. I think the preparation that goes behind it makes me feel strongly about where I will be after college.

I couldn't be more grateful about the opportunities that have opened up to me. This summer of 2015 I am currently working at our new Green Lane Building for KLabs. Besides working with real clients one of our first projects was to redesign the campus so more parking spots could be opened up while creating a more interactive space by including new trees along side paths when your headed to class.

Can't wait for more opportunities to open up, it seems like everyday they do.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've had different experiences with schools, this has been a very helpful school. They actually care for a student's education other things just have to be on top of yourself. Loans, aid, and homework of course.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: College is a different experience overall but Kean is pretty unique in its social atmosphere

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The small program and the student to teacher ratio is one the greatest things a school can offer. Coming from a large undergraduate institution, I felt very little attachment and connection towards my professors and peers. You see a familiar face everyday, however, that's all there is to it. At Kean University, the professors know you personally. They understand your busy schedule, the stresses of deadlines, and that every student has outside obligations. It is a very supportive environment and your peers will support you in every way.

Perks of attending any school in New Jersey include the conveniences of traveling. With so many restaurants to check out and places to visit, you're always in for an adventure. Kean University's student body consists of international students as well as students from all around the states. You're always in to learn something new! I don't regret my decision at all and I'm always looking forward to what else the school has to offer!

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: It could be better but it's not bad.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys are no the problem. They are easier to make friends with than girls.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I went there a couple of times. It was okay.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I really don't care because the sports they have I'm not really interested in other than volleyball and soccer. Track and Field is where it is at but we don't have it.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If I had a car I could go to more parties.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I usually eat Chinese food or pizza. If I had a car I would have more options like going to Shop-rite or Walmart to go shopping and cook in the community kitchens.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I wasn't a bad student so I really don't know. I did get caught at a couple of parties but didn't get in trouble because it was only a noise complaint.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The upperclassmen cafe should have a little more options and do a little of a better job cooking the food. But the food did start to taste a little better towards the end of the semester.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The first time my parents and I were confused but after it was really easy.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Compared to other campus, my school has one of the biggest dorms. So much space and you can't really complain.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Its okay, sometimes really great, sometimes just okay

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Olympia Diners discount is only a dollar and some change.... no real difference there

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Its not too strict were as you are not able to do anything or have any freedom, but it is strict to the point where you think of it s a problem but, you know its for your best interest.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food options in the UC Cafeteria are great but, the dorm cafeteria food is lacking sometimes. It has its good and bad days
