5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All the professors here are absolutely brilliant and are great at teaching. However, some of them aren't so enthusiastic about it but are generally very helpful if approached outside of class like during office hours or after class. Most professors really do care about students' grades and so they try and help out as much as they can.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of career fairs where plenty of top companies come to recruit students as interns or full time employees. The career Knight system (online) helps one spread their resume/cv to different companies. They even edit or help build proper resumes/CV's.

Health & Safety: Campus is pretty safe beaches there are always cops there to help out if anyone needs it. Police cars are always there to drop someone back home at late hours if the need arises. Campus alerts keep us updated about the crimes happening on or near campus which do not come in so often meaning crimes are not committed very often on or near campus areas.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone is very enthusiastic about football and truly support the university's team. Other sports are also encouraged.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a wonderful university with a huge campus area and a very diverse campus community. Here, they certainly do not discriminate or put down anyone's opinion which, I feel, should be the attitude of every other college and university. Everyone has an opportunity to grow and become something or someone important which contributes to the motivation offered by the University to their students to work harder and do better. I would not only choose this university again (if I were to do it all again) I would recommend it to others as well.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is open to the public. This increase the safety risk on campus. The school updates us about suspected crimes, incidents, and health risks so we can better prepare ourselves.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school of social work is invested in the success of their students and alumni. They offer many opportunities to network, build occupational skills, and to advance your education.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I am a member of the Greek community. As a graduate student I recognize that Greeks are actively involved in the community and they positively impact the campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I do not follow the campus sports because academic and work life balance.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My graduate class is a diverse group of passionate individuals who all want to have a positive impact on the world. People are who make a school. These people are great and the school is great.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Convenience to the bus stop.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Lots of parties organized .Greek houses are available to students. Most of the students in greek life are actually not greek.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Lots of football games during the fall.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lots of activities to get involved in. It is possible to feel lonely but getting out of your room and attending events can easily change that. Many churches available and good dining options.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The security team in place does their best to keep the campuses safe but because of how expansive all five campuses are it becomes difficult to effectively maintain safety. Most crimes don't occur on the actual campuses but on the streets and areas that border where campuses end and the cities begin.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Rutgers has multiple career fairs a year, especially during the spring. A plethora of employers always come to these fairs to recruit graduating and undergraduate students for jobs and internships because they value the degrees we earn and how Rutgers prepares us for our careers.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The courses are tough at Rutgers. TAs mainly don't speak English, and you can never find a parking spot. However, despite these things, after the first week of your freshman year, you realize Rutgers is different than other schools. Diversity is definitely something that makes Rutgers stand out-the friends you will meet at Rutgers will make you realize that you like Indian music and Persian food, and
you'll go to friends houses during their Jewish holidays. Students will learn to live with all different people, despite different backgrounds, and smile and laugh the nights away in the dorms.

It is a very large university, and professors won't realize or care if you are failing a course. However, students remark that they wanted to attend a large university because it makes them grow up. At Rutgers, no one holds your hand as you pick courses (and there's 4,000 to choose from), and they don't make sure you are taking the courses necessary for your major. Everything is done by the actions of the students. If you want real life experiences instead of a college resembling your high school, you'll find it here.
