3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: RUnation; it's a great environment.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Rutgers-Newark has a lot to offer, the diversity is refreshing compared to some schools I had visited, the history of Jazz is very interesting because I love playing Jazz and most of my Professors are intelligent and helpful. On the other hand, while there is a lot to see and do in Newark, (NJPAC, Prudential Center), and NYC is only a short train ride away, it is generally not the best city to live in, although the campus itself is pretty safe. Also I very much dislike the fact that it is mainly a commuter college, there is an almost visible disinterest and dissatisfaction in the faces and voices of most commuters in most colleges.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Rutgers Newark is a great school its perfect for me because I can commute and I enjoy going to a well-known school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Rutgers-Newark is small and mostly quiet. I like that its not that big because it gives you a chance to know a lot of people.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's not the best but certainly provides students with a decent experience due to their well managed staff and academics.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: The cafeteria does not have a lot of options, and most of them are pretty unhealthy. There are barely any restaurants or cafes around campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: In Newark, there is a lot of cheap housing near campus, but it doesn't seem very safe. If you travel a bit farther, Hoboken, Jersey City, Weehawken, and Union City are still near enough by train/bus but much nicer with a lot more to do.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are not many restaurants near the campus. There's a pizza place and a subway. If you go a little farther there's this place called the Green Chicpea which is really good.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I had no problems with the financial aid office. They took care of everything for me quickly.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is the either the same price or cheaper then dorming.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love Sahara's food its really great and not as expensive as the other restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Sometimes I feel like they are more strict on things that they shouldn't be and more lenient on things that they shouldn't be

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Make sure you keep calling them and going because the financial aid process at Rutgers really sucks.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The surrounding restaurants are really great and the food trucks as well

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the atmosphere, it's very enticing and cozy.

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.

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.

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
