I am a pharmacy student at Rutgers and this is my 5th year attending this university. I have enjoyed my time here so far. I love meeting new people and there is so much diversity here compared to my high school and town that everyday is a new experience. You have so many ways to connect with distinguished professors and to get started on research as an undergraduate. The possibilities in this school are endless as long as you make the most of what you have.

Rutgers has everything you want in a college. The academics challenge you for your future. The campus is big, but that only means that there is a lot to do around in your spare time. It does, however, make it tougher to connect with others. There is a lot of diversity around campus. The dorms aren't the best but are adequate enough to stay in. Safety can be a concern if you're living in New Brunswick at night, so be careful! Otherwise, Rutgers is an affordable choice for anyone interested in a state school.

Rutgers is a great school for variety, I am a part of Mason Gross, and enjoy being an art student. I have the opportunity to take classes from many different subjects as well. The food is really good with many options, however shopping centers require a cab, car, or bus if you know the routes. The bus system is a bit hectic, but there is an app to help out. The clubs are really fun, and make my experience so much better. Don't be afraid to try new classes, clubs and events, it's worth it!
