4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses offered and professors that teach the courses are great. The classes are engaging and challenging.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is mostly seen as a teaching school so students with degrees in teaching will most likely have an easier time getting a job with a degree here. The school is well respected and I am not worried about not obtaining a job in the future.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are places always advertised to where someone can go for help or who to call. There is even systems set in place for when you are walking alone across campus at night.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Machuga is really quiet and one year my RA did not do anything for my floor so I barely knew anyone.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about my school's Greek life. The people I know that are in a sorority or fraternity like it.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Personally, I enjoy sports and my major is sport related so I spend a lot of time in the athletic facilities whereas other students do not. I notice at some points there is a lack of attendance at the sporting events, especially on the weekends.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Since my school is mainly commuters, there isn't a lot to do on the weekends.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: I have never been interested in Greek Life because while they promote volunteer work, all I have come in contact with are how much they like to party.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The sports events are not always advertised. There is also a loss of school spirtit that I know of.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have always been uncertain about where I will end up after graduation. However, the professors are dedicated in their area of teaching, and motivate the student to reach their true potential. I just wish there was more scholarship aid and career services avaliable.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being an accounting major, I hardly ever need to leave the school of business (it's practically my second home). The four years of undergrad are pretty much planned out for me, I have little room to mess up on classes and not much time to branch out (in terms of taking classes just for pure interest rather than fulfilling a requirement). Most of my professors have been great, but if you're an accounting student stay away from Lohrey and Chang, prepare yourself for Markoff because he's the hardest professor you'll have, and take Lipari if you can! The school of business (aka the feliciano building) was recently built so everything looks new and clean, the rooms and layout of the rooms all vary in size and many change based on floor (as it's done by business majors). The class sizes remind me of high school, 20+ students in the class unless you have Degaetano - in that case it'll be around 15 students (maybe less).

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Alumni speak at the school very often and accounting firms actively recruit on campus. Career center is often advertised if you need assistance with job searches or your resume/cover letter.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety is a top priority of the college and they do their best to make sure everyone not only feels safe but comfortable in their environment.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Blanton > anywhere else. Although it's not as new as The Heights, it's close to the buildings that matter (aka all your classes unless you're a music major), the shuttle, the parking lot, and basically everything else. Not to mention that there's basically a cafeteria on the first floor. It's basically the most convenient res. hall on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life has a normal presence on campus, as normal as a Northern small-ish/medium-sized greek community would be.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There's two different gyms, one for athletes and one for other students (although athletes can go to this one too). The normal campus gym is beautiful, has a great view, and great equipment!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Similar to every college, there are pros and cons. Montclair State University has a lot to offer and your experience is what you make of it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The faculty are truly outstanding and willing to help.

Overall Experience: Its just okay. You have to make your professors like or hate you to get a feel of the in between.

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.

3 College Junior

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.

3 College Junior

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.

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.
