4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The Mandatory Housing Agreement at Rowan is what kills everything but the actually housing at The Crossings is fair and pretty nice looking. It's where I plan to live when I partake in part time. They've been really good about helping me and my boyfriend get into an apartment.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Pretty decent, I usually cook at home but can't complain with the Grocers. A lot of the businesses around there take the Boro bucks if I'm not mistaken so it's really nice.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Administration helped a hell of a lot more than Financial Aid did, I'll tell yah that much.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I won't receive any financial aid from my understanding since I'm out-of-state. The only transfer scholarships are for in-state and there's nothing else I can apply for except for external scholarships and grants.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not a party goer but the nightlife seems good.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food itself is good, and it seems fairly clean enough. No complaints.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: From what I've seen and understand, the housing situation seems to be okay. Living in the single sex dorms seems like a hassle though, as it's almost too loud around that you can't sleep. You also don't get winter housing or summer housing if you're not in a three person dorm, so out-of-state transfers beware. You may have to sleep in the snow.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: We're about half an hour away from Philadelphia. Glassboro itself is not the most interesting town, but the surrounding towns, like Philadelphia and Deptford, have shopping, professional sports, cultural events, and an array of not-school-related things for people to do.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places within walking distance, but there are even more places outside of walking distance.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus crime is almost nonexistent as far as I know. I always feel safe when I'm here. My dorm has had 61 fire alarms so far this year, so it's nice to know we're safe from fires. RoPo is rampant and always around.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors I have had so far have genuinely cared about my education. The curriculum is challenging, but not impossible. The workload is what you would expect of a college workload. The registration process is fairly easy. Professors almost always have office hours available. The library is a great place to study.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are parties all weekend, every weekend. They are mostly frat parties and sport team parties.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I dealt with financial aid all summer in order to get some help with paying for school. I am still dealing with them today.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't have anything bad to say about the administration here. The rules are explained very well by RAs at the beginning of every year/semester. If people don't abide by them, that's their own fault.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I'm not looking for a relationship at the moment, but most of the guys here are attractive and nice. I'm familiar with mostly music majors, so, obviously, they are interested in music. Some are interested in sports and video games as well. Most guys that I see dress fairly well. The social scene here is pretty goos if you're willing to put yourself out there and talk to a random person.

College Freshman

Majors: As a second semester freshman, I have not had any student teaching jobs yet. It is crucial for my major, though. I know older students and graduates who have had pleasant student teaching experiences.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm a second semester freshman. I won't have experience with off-campus housing for another year and a half.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports definitely exist on the campus, but no one outside of the athletics department pays attention to them. The first varsity football game was a part of welcome week, so a lot of freshmen went, but the game was beyond disappointing and no one ever went to the rest. School spirit is average. It's not as noticeable as it would be in a D1 school, but there hasn't been a day when I haven't seen someone wearing Rowan apparel. Students who participate in sports care about sports, but no one else really does. I love this school, but I do not care about the sports.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I've learned a lot from the professors/classes. However, it can be a bit repetitive.

Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I won't know until I get a job.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Getting into my program was not that difficult.

Local Area: Glassboro isn't a bad city to live in. It's a nice college/small town.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: my friends live off campus, it's a hassle they cannot get street parking permits

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: I know multiple people who have experienced sexual assault, the university needs to step up and really start paying more attention and punishing people

3 College Junior

Scholarships: i do not have any but I know people who do

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Rowan University is more than you'd expect from a New Jersey state university. With a student body of close to 10,000 students, the University is a great size—it has a close-knit feel, but you'll still probably meet someone new every day. With a nationally acclaimed engineering program, the University attracts some of the best and brightest. The Rowan experience exists far beyond the classroom though. On any given weekday night, there is always something to do. Whether it’s a University-planned event, bingo at Rowan After Hours, or a fraternity party, there is something for everyone.

Rowan is home to a humble student body, so if you put yourself out there, there's a good chance you'll meet some of the greatest friends you will ever make. As far as academics go, if you put in a lot of work, you'll get a lot back. The professors genuinely care about the students’ success and often encourage everyone to share their opinions in class. Projects, including the addition of the Rowan Boulevard Apartments and the Cooper Medical School, prove that Rowan is looking to grow from a state school of regional interest to a nationally recognized university.
