4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Rowan University is a great university when it comes to education. The professors are excellent and are more than happy to help you succeed. Rowan offers a countless amount of experiences to either improve your work or yourself as a future professional. However, when it comes to on-campus living, the university lacks certian aspects to keep the students happy. Overall, I would still choose this school.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is not enough parking at Rowan which means I and many others leave class very late at night and walk to our cars in a mostly empty, dark parking lot. There should be safer parking for night class students.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I found a job in my field (education) on my own. Rowan discourages my job by not allowing me any flexibility in school programs to work while completing the degree.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I enjoy my classes. Most of my professors have been incredible and helpful. Advising and the office faculty in the college are not accommodating. They do not plan for the working student AT ALL. I have asked for accommodations in certain classes so I can continue my job to pay for school while finishing the education program and have been denied request after request. They are only ready for the 18 year old student straight out of high school who lives on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are great for the most part. Sometimes you get what you want and other times you don't. The professors are great although there are a few that could be better. Overall there are no complaints

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The networking aspect of Rowan is great. They hold a lot of career fairs and help all the students in getting internships and part time jobs

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health and safety at Rowan is one of the best features of the university. I always feel safe no matter what and the police and security that patrols the campus are especially nice and helping no matter what

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are your average dorms. Some are nicer and some are a little on the older side. Holly Pointe is one of the nicest dorms I have ever seen, though. The social atmosphere is great as there is always something going on and everybody is friendly and accepting

Athletics: Sports at Rowan are amazing. Everybody comes out to the football games to cheer on the team and to meet new people. Great atmosphere

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Rowan is a great school when it comes to academics. The professors want to see you excel in your area of study and are always willing to write recommendations for a potential job or help you with your paper.

Health & Safety: Just with any school, it's on the person in some cases to be more careful at night. This doesn't down-grade the issue, but students generally should be more prepared and more cautious about their decisions. The school can't be everywhere at once, but the good thing is that it at least puts up a great effort to combat the reality of sexual assault.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have heard many success stories from the internship center and I do believe in the process here. Internships are very accessible and most professors have connections that students wouldn't even think of. Especially in fields such as journalism.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Way too expensive in some buildings. They make it way too difficult to pay for the bundle of tuition and all of the rest.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty much the ruling body of social affairs on campus. The best way to make friends, in the opinion of Greek-supporters, is to join a fraternity or sorority. This isn't true of course, but many kids who were popular in high school look at Greek life as the next step.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Club and intramural sports have a better impact on students here than varsity sports. A lot of them, such as rugby, men's lacrosse, and wrestling should be turned into varsity sports for the sake of the school and the hard-working athletes.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've loved being in this college instead of the community college I was at before. I love the atmosphere and the friends I've made. I've gotten very involved on campus and it is very easy, thanks to SGA and all of the great staff.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe on my campus. There are police and neighborhood watches posted throughout the campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Rowan University Master's in Biomedical Sciences degree aids students in gaining entry to other professional schools. They also teach them valuable research skills that the students can use when applying to careers in relation to the degree. The student services are extremely helpful and very communicative, so any issue that the student may have with the class load, financial aid, or others are solved in an efficient manner.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The graduate campus is small compared to the main one at the university, however, it is very convenient and the atmosphere is friendly and studious.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I am not part of the Greek Life at my university.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I normally do not play a part in the athletic facilities of the university.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Rowan University is catered to helping students earn their degrees and become a prospective member to society. The master's degree in biomedical sciences allows students to gain entry into other professional/doctorate schools while giving students research knowledge and experience. So far my experience with Rowan University has been a positive one!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not yet began my first year/semester at RU.

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.
