4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For the most part I loved most of my professors. The ones I liked did such a good job explaining the topics and making sure we all knew what was going on. The few that I didn't like were really unapproachable and didn't help us in any way. Overall I think the professors are really good.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Upon committing to Montclair, when my mother and I came to one of the workshops being offered, we were really pleased to hear my, now, advisor say that generally people in my major and concentration get hired by the people they do their interning for. This was really good to hear because it made deciding this major feel great. The Career services really does do a good job at helping the students figure out what they want to do.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I love how we have an on campus police department. It is close to everything so we always feels safe. Also, the campus has so many things that you can do if you don't ever feel safe.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus, however, my first semester, I ran into issues with on of my roommates. Me and my other roommate had to move out because we couldn't handle our third roommate. Our community director didn't really do much to help resolve the problem besides giving us an available room to move into. Besides that, it is such a positive experience to live on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: At Montclair there is no Greek housing. As a member of one of the National sororities on campus, I think Greek life has such a positive effect on the campus. It doesn't matter if you are a part of it or not, everyone treat everyone with the same respect.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletics at Montclair aren't the worst, but they could be improved, however, fan support is huge. The crowds for games in all the sports always are good. People love going out and watching the sporting events on campus. Our school spirit is great and our mascot really helps with that.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I could go back in time and pick another school other than Montclair, I would not. I absolutely love Montclair. I have met so many new people and made so many friends. Montclair has changed me into a better person. I joined a sorority this past semester and couldn't be happier.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. I like that the campus police will send out email warnings of "suspicious people".

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I felt like the school wanted me to attend. Their application was simple and easy to fill out.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The housing there is Okay. It's the people that you are forced to share housing with that are the issue.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I do not know much about Greek life on campus.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I'm not into sports so I wouldn't know that much. However the community gym on campus is beautiful!

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The housing process is a nightmare. Often times people are not so friendly. I find it hard to make it my home.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a member of Greek life. But I know that Greek life is a big part of campus. They do much for their environment and defiantly go respected.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being a division 3 school, our sports team are slightly above average. Our athletic facilities are relatively clean, nice, and efficient.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It has a vast range range of wants ranging from food all the way to several basic necessities. It's diverse. It's great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are plenty of courses offered for my majors that I look forward to taking in the future. The professors are very knowledgable and I highly respect that.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have heard of alumni who succeed in the fields they studied in which gives me confidence in doing the same.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe when I am on campus no matter what time of the day it is or if I am alone. Last semester I took a night class where I arrived at my dorm at 11pm and never had a problem.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am in Greek life myself and it is definitely one of the best decisions I made in my college career. There are a lot of Greeks on campus and it is easy to tell when they wear their lettered jackets. There are multicultural, latin based, African American, national, and very diverse overall which gives students more options if they are interested.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: This school is not well known for its athletic programs but students do attend games and homecoming events.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has offered me plenty of opprotunities to succeed as a student and grow as a person. It is a medium sized campus with a lot of commuters which often fools people into thinking that this university does not provide good academics and things to do. As a sophomore, I am continuing to be involved and could not be happier. I actually look forward to what else is ahead of me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Very nice campus and people seem to be involved. The professors care about their students and are always seeking ways to help.

Greek Life: The Greek organizations definitely make themselves seen on campus, a lot of spirit

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic scene is pretty good at this school, however the campus definitely doesn't revolve around it and there could be more spirit.

Montclair State University is not the first choice for a lot of people. Some students choose the University for its education program, the proximity to their hometown, or the chance to play a sport, but others come because they can't afford anything else or they got in here and not many other places. In the end, though, Montclair offers a good education at a great price.

While any college can only prepare a student as much as they are willing to work, Montclair isn't lacking in its offerings. Many of the programs are very good, and there are opportunities that MSU offers to build upon what is offered in the classroom. Some majors require cooperative education, while all others make it available and help students find internships for the semester or break. Besides that, there are opportunities to do research, go abroad, and participate in organizations that give real world experience. Yes, some students coast through MSU and leave unprepared for any type of job by the time they get their degree, but other students also work hard and are ready to get a good job at the end of four years. The only downside is that many times your classmates will not challenge you, so to do very well, a student has to motivate and compete against themselves and the system. Overall, MSU is a good school, but it isn't outstanding. Perhaps the most unique fact is that it offers a quality education at a relatively low price.
