3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I personally have not lived off campus, but older friends make it seem like there are plenty of off campus housing options. Landlords are easy to get along with and if you have a group of friends living together, price is split 4-6 different ways.

Off-Campus Dining: In Glassboro, there are tons of different restaurants that deliver to students right on campus. Most have really good hours ranging from mid day to late night. Some offer specials for students while others have average prices. The best places around Rowan's campus are Hunan Lok, Jimmy John's, Grilly Cheese, Pizza Hut, Ciconte's.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Any alcohol or illegal substances found being used my minors will experience punishment, usually suspension or explosion. Also, cops are everywhere all the time trying to find kids walking around with open containers. Depending on your RA, either very strict or lenient. I've heard of RA's that drink with students and RA's who hear noise through the wall and write students up.

Scholarships: From what i have heard, financial aid at this school can be stressful and not easily accessible. I got little to no financial aid, therefore I had to go through a bank to get loans instead.

Party Scene: In my opinion, the party scene at Rowan University is really fun. Every weekend Thursday-Saturday nights there is always stuff going on off campus. Usually frats such as Pike, DKE, TKE, FIJI have the best parties and are well known about all over campus. The party scene mostly has a positive impact on the student experience because it is a time to go out with your friends and let loose to have a good time. In addition, students are able to meet one another in a casual setting.

Campus Food: The main dining hall has little healthy selection and variation. It serves almost the same foods every single day. On the weekends, the caf has almost no food and very low selection of fruit. Those who have "unlimited" meal plan are not actually unlimited because you can not use your swipes less than 2/3 hours apart. The downstairs marketplace cafeteria is nicer than upstairs. There is selection from pizza, Mexican food, Vietnamese food, sandwiches and salads. The best way to take advantage of your meal plan is to use the Boro Bucks and Dining Dollars that come with it and spend it on food that comes from off campus restaurants.

Campus Housing: Living on campus at Rowan University make the college experience much more enjoyable. On a typical day, people are outside talking, reading/studying, playing catch, etc. Campus and the dorms bring the students together and allow them to socialize and spend time with each other. There are laundry rooms in every dorm which is convenient for students. No dorms on campus are considered "bad dorms", each one is known for benefiting students in some way. Many students like the fact that the dining hall and recreation center are in the middle of campus, making it very accessible for all those on campus. Another factor that goes into having a good living experience on campus would be having an RA who is interested in helping and guiding students, especially freshman. RA's will ease the transition process and help students with whatever they can. My own RA was able to help me on move in day by showing me to my room and having designated volunteers to bring up all my bins filled with stuff. Living on campus is what you make of it.

Administration: I am a commuter and don't have much interaction with them. However my ID was stolen and someone spent money from my meal plan. They were no help in getting my money back. On the Rowan Card page online it says another student using someone else's card will be responsible for the purchases they made. They didn't enforce that policy. Someone got away with using my card (even though it had my picture on it) and I am out about $20.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: First I got $8500 a year and then my mom wrote a letter asking for more and they increased it to $11500. I have heard of some students getting so much scholarship money that they actually got paid to go to college. I am disappointed that didn't happen with me, considering I had a 4.0 in high school.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party. Students shouldn't do that. I think anyone caught should get expelled.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: Much better than high school cafeteria. The Owl's Nest is very good and they take boro bucks and dining dollars. They have new specials every day. The food court and marketplace and prof's place take meal plan. They are good but not as good as the owls nest.

Campus Housing: I am a commuter student

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.

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.

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.
