4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like so much the experience being a Cougar student. The professors are good; I like the way they teach me in class.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've had some bad experiences with some professors when it comes to grading but overall I won't let the bad experience outweigh the good because Kean do have some of the best professors, who not only cares about their students but also their students future. I had one encounter with a professor who forgot to include the grade of my final paper into my overall grade, In which I received a grade that I didn't deserve; knowing that I've gave that course my all. I reached out to the professor to discuss the issue; she did apologize however I was stuck with a grade in which she wasn't willing to change all because she didn't want others to notice the type of mistakes she made. I then reached out to the Dean of that department and the situation was dealt with accordingly.

Overall Experience: Kean is known as the education schools, future educators reap the benefits of Kean; they have some of the best opportunities and materials available to them. Being someone who decides to major in Biology won't make much of a big deal having a Kean degree compare to someone who wants to be an educator with a Kean degree. If there were more pre-Med facilities & pre-med involvement around campus then my opinion would have been different.

Campus Housing: Living on campus my first year was a total hassle, the building I lived in had no air conditioner neither did it had an elevator. In order for my family and I to move my belongings to and from the campus, we had to carry heavy loads of boxes up & down the stairs. It was a very stressful transaction which made me decided to become a commuter student.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is very interesting and involving on campus. They would usually host parties and a variety of events for everyone to come out and enjoy. The only disadvantage is hosting the parties on a week night, I think it would be better for the parties to be hosted on Friday nights or Saturday nights instead of Thursday nights, when there is students who want to enjoy themselves but also worried about having to wake up the next day for class.

Overall Experience: What makes Kean unique is the diversity, being able to meet people from different walks of life is very amazing and is also one of the main things Kean is known for. Being able to join different clubs based on your nationality, and being able to experience and get a taste of other cultures.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall i have very much enjoyed my experience here at kean. I believe that the professors are great and i have yet to have a professor that I disliked. I would like it more if some of the students took this school a little more serious. But for the most part a lot of student here actually care about their education.

Overall Experience: The value of a degree at this school is good. Because it is the best teaching school in new jersey i don't think that i'll have trouble finding a job after graduation

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus. The Alcohol safe haven quiz that the T2K class made us complete is very helpful and had plenty of useful information. I think that this school is great at keeping its' student safe

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love the campus housing available. Even though i am commuter i have seen and visited the residential housing multiple time and each time it made me consider living on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have not participate in much of Greek life event but from what I herd it is an experience that is most enjoyable to those who have attended it. I have not attend because of classes or for the simple fact that I was unaware of the events that were going on

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are OK at my school. Not many people attend the games but those that do enjoy their time there. There were many instances that i would have like to go t some games but couldn't because of class time. However i do plan on attending at least one game this upcoming semester.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe and well protected. There is a police station right on campus. There isn't much campus crime, the biggest problem is people getting busted with alcohol in their rooms.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are a comfortable size. For freshman year the best option would be the New Freshman building because Dougall and Whiteman hall do not have air conditioning and the water pressure could definitely be better. For the upper classmen any of the buildings will suffice. They all have elevators and air conditioning. The older buildings do have more space than the New upper classmen building. The cost of the older ones are also cheaper. The housing process is very easy and you will definitely end up with the people and room you want as long as you apply on time.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of our school. Most students are part of some organization. There is a Greek org for all types of students regardless of who you are. Sororities are not allowed to own houses where my school is located. Greek life is a great way to branch out and meet tons of new people and ways to start making connections that could potentially help you when looking for a job.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit is definitely prominent at the school. All types of sporting events are regularly attended. Homecoming is a big event at our school which is attended not only by current students but as alumni as well. The athletic facilities are well maintained.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience so far! The professors are easy to approach and very helpful. There are so many different opportunities for students on campus with the wide variety of activities and clubs that students can engage in. The campus is beautiful and only a 30 minute train ride away from the city which is great! If I could go back I would definitely choose this university again.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of the classes I've taken so far have been general education classes that I took in high school and were very simple. The professors were very helpful and will do a lot for their students. Some times there are professors that get thrown a course out of nowhere and they try their best to teach it to the best of their ability.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I know a lot of people who graduated from Kean that were Education majors and they got a job very easily out of college. I am not sure about other majors but Kean is really developing in many of their programs like the new design program and soon to be nursing program. Their psychiatric rehabilitation program is very good along with the speech and language pathology program.
