4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Rowan University! Its big enough where you dont know everyone and have a huge variety of everything but its small enough where if you need help its very easy and everything is in walking distance. Its an amazing community, and well rounded atmosphere. People are friendly, the school always have activities for you to attend. Its a great place.

Overall Experience: Rowan University had a very interactive group of peer leaders that helped me transition from high school life to college life pretty easily.

Overall Experience: It's a nice size school. The classes are small and the teachers are happy to work there. However the food is pretty bad but there are places to eat other the cafe.

Overall Experience: Rowan is rapidly developing as a cornerstone academic research institution in the megalopolis region of the United States. The high faculty to student ratio primes the classroom for in-depth intellectual discussion, and direct interaction with professors and administrative heads. I found I was very supported in engaging in the community and taking on leadership roles, which helped me develop the skill-set necessary to succeed professionally. The university is located in a town with a total population (including students) around 60-70 thousand. With that figure in mind, and considering the affordable cost of attendance-- Rowan captures a small private school feel, without being unreasonably pricey. I would encourage potential students to seriously consider what Rowan has to offer, and what they want to get out of their education.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: i did not like attending the university of Bridgeport. I had the worst time there. The school is located in a dangerous neighborhood, and the dorms were so disgusting and just so nasty. I did not feel comfortamble staying there at all. I was so excited to transfer out of that garbage university. Plus the food is disgusting, I felt like I was living in jail or something staying there, they kept feeding us the same garabage everyday. I can not even recall how many times I had gotton food positioning from there. Just one bad mistake going to the university of bridgeport.

Overall Experience: My experience at Burlington County College was not bad but not great. The reason why I picked this school is because I wanted to complete my associates degree, then after that, transfer to a 4-year University. The transfer process was easy and quick and the people who handled that were very friendly and did their job well. Now I am excited about attending my new school, Rowan University.

Off-Campus Dining: Most places are inconveniently expensive for a college student but it is not mostly there for the benefits of college students. it is also available for the community as well.

Administration: Rowan University has a very strict policy regards to drug and alcohol use as well as academia. As for the social aspect, the campus is widely diverse that allows each individual to feel accepted and welcomed but it is not strict at all to scare or offend anyone.

Campus Food: Dining options need to be wider for students to choose from because the few choices can become tiring to eat from occasionally especially for a freshman without a car.

Scholarships: For the most part i personally was not too involved with my financial aid process. I asked my mom to assist me with it because she was more familiar with it and because of our financial status it seemed okay in recieving what i needed

Campus Housing: Living on-campus gives a first time freshman student the greatest experience of living in a small space shared among others. I learned how to cooperate with other people within the shared spaced and allowed me to escape my comfort zone in order to experience so much more that Rowan has to offer.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Lots of people to talk to and get help from in any problem or situation. Everyone is welcoming.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: A lot of food choices esp for people with any diet restrictions. I am vegetarian and my friend was gluten free and vegetarian but we always found something to eat whatever time of day it may be.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Apply for aid even if think you won't get it. You make get a loan of some sort. Apply for scholarships and just keep you GPA up.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There is a lot of awesome things about living on campus, but it deff not everything. Your experience is what you make it whether you live on campus or commute. If you live on campus take all the campus has to offer! Most things are free - use of gym or wellness center, different speakers etc. And if commuting take time out of your schedule to make sure you are getting some of the college experience.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: The places downstairs in the student center aren't horrible if you need something quick. The cafeteria has a bunch to choose from but you have to be careful when you go because they have times where there's pretty much nothing out in between "meal times" and that can last for awhile.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus in Crossings. The parking situation there is terrible, but the complex itself is decent and not too expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a handful of decent places nearby and a bunch of easy to get to fast food places as well. It's nothing gourmet, but it's not horrible.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I haven't had too many experiences dealing with the administration since I live off campus and the dorm rule breaking things don't apply to me. I've only interacted with campus security once when they drove me to class when I had a broken ankle. They were nice enough.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors I have had were good. I only had one annoying professor. I like the class sizes, no huge lecture halls.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 96% of engineering students got a job within a year of graduation.

Local Area: There are many restaurants and places to shop

3 College Student

Scholarships: It's not, they barely gave me any at all so i had to get an on campus job to pay for my tuition.

1 College Student

Campus Food: Only reason why I have a meal plan is because my parents made me and so did the school (it's required for residents). You're better off eating out at Wawa every night.

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.
