3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Its not an easy school to attend but the class sizes are small and you get to know your professors and really learn something

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: As a biology major my coursework is difficult however the majority of my professors are extremely passionate about their material.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school is making immense strides. The campus itself has expanded so much since my freshman year and their program outreach is really putting Rowan on the map. I am proud that my degree will be from this school.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: It is not fair to pretend that things do not happen on campus however the school has a great police/security presence at all times. As a woman I have never been afraid to be alone.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I am so fortunate to have been able to experience living on campus all four years and throughout different housing complexes. The housing office is ALWAYS a hassle, if you have any issues then it is difficult to get someone to take you seriously without having your parent present.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life but my friends that are a part of it are extremely happy with their decisions.

3 College Senior

Athletics: There is a varsity athletics presence however there is not an emphasis on their events. It is nice to go and support but there is definitely a lack of attendance.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I was hesitant about first attending Rowan University however now that I am here, I can't imagine college anywhere else. There are so many opportunities to better myself in my field of study and as a citizen of the world.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had very awful experiences with certain professors/courses. Some professors only care about students interested in their field and can't be bothered with students of other disciplines. Those professors usually have harder grading systems a high failure rate. That being said I have also had experiences with incredibly laid back professors who are inspiring and genuinely enjoy being there. They make it worth being there.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have not had the opportunity to start looking for such prospects but I always here about the many resources like our newly renovated career center, and the various job fairs that we host so I am hopefully and confident in the future

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school definitely puts a heavy emphasis on the issue of safety. Certain protocols on campus are incredibly helpful, however, the campus police are not the most effectively and are the main reason someone would not feel safe there.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My freshman year dorm was in Willow Hall. Its probably one of the nicer freshman halls. My floor was entirely female, which I didn't mind. Floormates were incredibly entertaining and all became very close, fast. My roommate is now one of best friends. Our floor lounge became the place to be, and when you would come back from class you would look in there first to see who was around. We didn't just stay in our rooms all day we made an effort to spend time with each other. The cleanliness was average as the cleaning ladies did a good job but honestly couldn't handle all the girls, so the bathroom was a little gross. It is definitely more expense than it should be to live there as the building is really old but overall was a good and real college-style experience

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I know very little about Greek life. My main connection was my roommate who joined the second semester of our freshman year. She complained that it was very time consuming but she enjoyed the people she interacted with

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Truthfully, I know very little about the sports at Rowan. I attended a decent amount of the soccer games because a friend is on the team and the turnouts were always good, but otherwise I have no idea about our sports.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Student life wise, Rowan is excellent. Clubs/extracurricular activities are the best part of the school. I have made incredible friends by being a part of as much as I could on campus. Additionally, the living situation is surprisingly good. It is exactly what I wanted for a "typical college experience." Living on campus was the best decision I made. However, academically I've had some bad experiences with professors and course in general but nothing too awful that makes me regret being there.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing at Rowan University features many different housing options. You can select anything from dorms and apartments, to town-houses and houses. Rowan University is always constructing new buildings to accommodate the growing student population.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life at Rowan University does not have much of an effect towards the social atmosphere on campus. Being a part of a fraternity or sorority will not have an impact on your general on campus living, although if you do join you will meet more students.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at Rowan University are a big part of on-campus living. The varisty sports are not too big, but the intramural and club teams interest everyone. They offer a very wide variety of sports and games that suit everyone of all skill levels. Many students look forward to a particular activity.

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.
