I got to travel to two countries with NJCU. Became a founder and president of an organization, and of course graduate with honors. I am back again for my second degree!

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.

My experience in New Jersey City University is an interesting one. There is a lot of diverse students in college depending on race, fashion, style, and definitely personality. I myself love going to the gym to workout and play basketball. The only thing is i am trying to pay off a loan as quickly as possible.
