Enrolling at this school made me realize a whole new world in higher education. The professors are easy to get a long with, students are open-minded and will hear you out as well as the professors. Making friends at this university is easy because of how diverse the school is. I find it unique because of its diversity and how all types of background are gathered into this university. I would choose this school again because of how my experience so far as a freshman was. I had fun, enjoyed the classes, making friends and enjoying the food as well! While I'm on summer break I feel homesick to this university because of how I miss it already. I am exited to start my sophomore year in September 6th and look forward to another year of fun and a learning experience!

My school is located in an area that has a lot of things to get involved in. Students are involved in sports, but sports are not the driving force of the school. However, sports activity is popular at the school, and I enjoy sports. I go to the athletic center frequently to work out by lifting weights and playing basketball. The athletic center is very modern and well equipped with machinery for many people to enjoy at the same time. I also attend sporting events when possible, and they are fun!

From the day I started I new it was a great choice. Even though I was starting late into the fall semester, all the staff were determined to try to make my entry there possible. I have never dealt with a staff member that didn't love their job here at NJCU. The classrooms are great because they very interpersonal. Not only do the professors know your name but they also will try to work with your situation if need be. Though I've had a few tough professors I've never had one that wanted any of their students to fail. Also, I love that, for the most part, the professors are passionate about what they're teaching about and they aim to make their students just as passionate about a subject as them. Overall, NJCU is a great school, I feel like I have become apart of a family.
