3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports don't seem to play a huge roll in this campus. I think sports are more of a Rutgers New Brunswick thing, or at least it's seems more popular there.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live in a neighboring city prior to my commencement at Rutgers. I was never told about off campus living options neither have I inquired about them from the university.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I would say the only good places would be if you venture out to the Ironbound section. There's a great variety of Portuguese, Brazilian, and Spanish cuisine.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: We have an open campus which is nice to have in a city like Newark, however it has it's downsides. Homeless people go in and out of buildings to utilize facilities, leaving them filthy and disgusting. This define lay poses a threat to our health and saftey. I've had a number of bad experiences on campus due to these factors. I would like for something to be done about it.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't party on campus being that I am a commuter.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have no complaints about the financial aid process with Rutgers. Everything can be done online including additional payments when financial aid doesn't cover everything.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I don't have a meal plan. So I pay out of pocket whenever I need to eat something. However all the surrounding restaurants are horrible including the food trucks. On top of being horrible its expensive. Sometimes I rather just go hungry until I get home.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I dont do off campus hosing so I can't really comment

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The cost of off-campus dining is sometimes too much

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Although financial aid was a hassle for me due to personal reasons, you get assistance. If you have a balance on your term bill that you can pay, you can apply for an appeal and get additional funds if it available. And the additional fund is not a loan, its a grant. Therefore, you are not paying anything back.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I dont really party much

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food in Stonsby is horrible. Students pay too much to eat poor quality food. It isn't fair that Rutgers Newark Funding goes to Rutgers New Brunswick because they are the main campus. We are here and we exist too. We too are humans, and we should be treated as such. It is disappointing and takes away from the college experience. Often times students have to go into their own pockets to purchase food. That money that we used to purchase food could be going towards school expenses such as books But we have no other chose but to.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus life is convenient during bad weathers and moments when classes begin at 8:30. There are various activities on campus, which makes it fun. However, the cafeteria food isn't too great. The food sometimes makes students sick. Also, students have witnessed rodents crawling around where we eat.

3 College Senior

Majors: I don't have a concern on an internship right now, my job is related to my field.

3 College Senior

Administration: There should be more security around the campus and being watchful on who is coming on campus. There shouldn't be any reason why strangers are being let into buildings which we are paying tuition for.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Most people head over to frat row where 2 or 3 frats will be having a party. Others will head over to McGoverns, Nizis, or Kill Kennys.

2 College Senior

Athletics: There is very little school spirit at Rutgers Newark. Most people are commuters and go home after classes are over.

2 College Senior

Campus Food: The food around campus is pretty bad, Starbucks is usually my last resort and it is way too expensive for a college budget.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Class sizes aren't too big but there still isn't a personal relationship with the professor and his or her students. In all the classes I have taken, only one professor got to know my name.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: A degree from Rutgers is valued greatly. There are a lot of opportunities for internships but you have to be willing to find out on your own about them.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The greeks do not really impact others. They aren't selective in who they date or what friends they have. Maybe of my close friends are greek and I am not greek myself.

1 College Junior

Party Scene: There is no party scene.

4 College Junior

Majors: The graduate nursing program is a great program, however finding clinical placements can be a challenge. I enjoy it, but tutition should be cheaper, not worth $700 per credit.

3 College Junior

Administration: Easy to park in the parking lot after business hours, no one really goes around to check for parking passes at night.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Most of the students in my school are working people with families that also go to school. Most people get along well during class time and study groups but there is very little interaction after that.
