3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The Value of the degree is great, but its the same from other schools, learn to network, and make a name for yourself at the end of the day this is just a paper to say i know how to learn if you're willing to teach me.

Campus Housing: in the newer buildings its better simply because the food is closer, you can control your own heat which is the main issue for the others who dorm, The village is only desirable because if you're 21 you're allowed to have one bottle of wine for your apartment and a given time, which is more then the rest of campus which is none.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not in anything Greek but my roommate and a few acquaintances are, and they love being Greek and love all the volunteer opportunities within it, the parties are a bonus and if you know someone in greek you can go mainly because the parties they throw are often off campus because Montclair doesn't allow Greek houses.

Athletics: The Athletics at the school are ok, i've met some people on the sports teams but they're not really overly enthused about their games or anything. You can attend them games but all around campus not everyone cares. The gym on campus is nice if you like to work out.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: School is alright, for the most part. The counselors only know their department but at community college they knew about all the departments. Its helpful when your advisor has some knowledge to give you about a possible minor or double major instead of you having to hunt down people in other departments, especially when you have no priority with them because you are technically not their student.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is very good. Everyone feels safe when walking to class or coming back from class late at night. We have a police station on campus that always has police men watching over the campus making sure everyone stays safe. It is also very easy to contact the campus police.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Every professor that i have had in the one year i have been here have all been very helpful. They all seem to care about me personally as a student and want me to succeed in life. They are always willing to give extra help if necessary and if have any questions they are always there to help. It is very easy to contact a professor and schedule times to meet with them. The class sizes are around 20-30 people. I find this a great size because they are small enough so that you feel more comfortable in them and you can get closer with your classmates and teacher.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school has recently been getting bigger and bigger therefore the value of a degree here is also getting bigger.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I was fortunate enough to live in the heights my first year on campus. This dorm building is one of the best on campus. It is relatively close to all of my classes and any food i might want. Everyone in this building is social and it is very easy to make new friends here. There really isn't a bad option for housing here. Anywhere you end up you will be happy in some way.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life is a big deal at MSU. They always have events going on around campus that are open to non-greek students. Everyone views each other as equals. The greeks have houses off campus that are within 5-10 minutes away.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics at MSU are very successful. Our teams here are pretty good and work very hard. Many students attend the football games and basketball games. Everyone is always cheering on the sports team. The facilities on the campus are five star. The rec center has everything you can imagine, a track, gym, pool, and much more. There are also fields around campus that you can go to if you want to play sports outside when there isn't a game going on.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like this school has everything. There are so many different opportunities on and around campus that will help me with my career path. The teachers i have had are always very helpful and want me to be the best that i can be. Overall the campus is beautiful and there are always activities and events going on that brings all of the students together.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not sure. I attended one party my freshmen year and had a blast. However, I do not know much about Greek life but I do know that, they are big on campus and pretty much all over.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I'm not sure because I no longer follow sports on campus since I do not spend as much time here as I did before. However, I overheard good things about the athletics. I actually had a few classes with athletics, they are very team oriented and give a lot of support during lectures.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is very diverse, people from all over attend and its great for networking.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
