5 College Sophomore

Academics: It is a great place to go for an education.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am really enjoying all my classes and I have done extremely well with getting good grades. I am very disappointed that i did not get into the honors program and would like an explanation as to why. All I got was a rejection letter with no reason explained. I don't think that it fair.

3 College Junior

Academics: There are several places to study and around finals time, RAH provides study rooms in the student center.

1 College Freshman

Academics: The teachers at this school are terrible. Absolutely terrible.

3 College Senior

Academics: The workload was extremely overwhelming as an education major. The advisors were pretty indifferent and didn't make me feel confident about what I was doing here. I had to be very proactive and do things without any guidance.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Rowan is a good school for education. You will learn and grow, but it is not one of those colleges that will intimidate you academically. Rowan started as a teaching school and is still known for its superior education department, but other departments are great, as well. The University's engineering and business colleges are both award-winning, and Rowan's public relations department in the College of Communication is one of the best in the country. Another reason students are drawn to the University is the specific radio, televisions, and film major, which attracts a wide array of students who are very interested in film production and history.

For students who may need additional resources, most teachers at Rowan are willing to provide everything from as much as tutoring to as little as a lending out a book that may offer extra insight. The teachers in most departments are willing and enthusiastic about teaching, and the students are the same about learning. Depending on your major, you will learn a lot here and graduate with great references.
