Kean University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
Kean University is a College like no other. When you walk onto campus, its as if you walked into a combination of people from all over the state that are all looking for the same goals and aspirations as yourself. The professors have no hidden agendas and aren't out to get you or make you fail. They take the extra time that you need to make sure you understand the material completely so that when you get into your field you can be more knowledgeable than the person next to you. Kean University is a one of a kind school and I would recommend anyone that wants to have a great college experience to go there.
To be frank, Kean University is the place to be if you're interested in a calm, wonderful college experience. Kean was my home away from home for four years. I was pursuing a double major, and as a result things often got complicated. I had to seek advisement in the Education department and the English department because I was studying Elementary/Middle School Education and also seeking the English Standard Option degree. In my opinion, my advisor was phenomenal. He broke down what classes I would need to take every semester based on the frequency of the courses offered. He encouraged me to work hard toward my goal. With that being said, I took thirteen credits one summer, and six credits another. Every semester I took eighteen credits. I was able to obtain my degree and complete my second major requirements in four years as opposed to five. I was encouraged to be a go-getter. I was not afraid to challenge myself and push boundaries. Looking back on my undergraduate experience, I wouldn't change a thing. I had the best support system both on and off campus. As a result, today I am currently pursuing my master's degree. I am a full-time teacher, a full-time graduate student, a full-time wife, and make time for community service. I believe that Kean University is a phenomenal place for one who wants to grow to their full potential and believe in the magic of their dreams.
Kean University is a diverse school with many opportunities to offer. The campus is beautiful for the last 4 years they have been expanding the campus and building new dorms and academic buildings. The university offers a wide range of extracurricular activities on and off campus. There is are fraternities and sororities, as well as various championship winning sports teams.
I thought it was good, but difficult to get in touch with your advisors.
I loved it, but the books were expensive and it was difficult to get some of the classes that were needed to graduate and it was hard to talk to somebody there.
Least expensive state school. Diverse population. Numerous organizations/clubs.
I am writing this review as a soon-to-be graduate of Kean University. Overall, the school isn't terrible; it's better than Willie P or quite a few of the local private colleges. However, there are HUGE problems which never get adressed because of a certain vindictive presidents agenda. Not to mention, this individual is protected by powerful friends, including Sen. Ray Lensiak. With Lesniak and Farahi out of the picture, this could be a solid school; the professors are usually as qualified as elsewhere. With them steering the boat, I wouldn't put a dead dog on the grass. Thankfully, I have a job secured with a well-known class one railroad in Virginia upon my graduation, (which is exactly what I wanted) so everything worked out in the end. (Actually, walking on the grass carries a $75 fine, courtesy of dear leader, so forget about putting anything on the grass.)
Kean University has been a wonderful atmosphere to receive my undergraduate degree. So much so, that I decided to attend the Nathan Weiss Graduate School - Marriage & Family Counseling program. This university obtains a comforting atmosphere, strives to constantly improve the student experience and provides excellent professors to be mentors.
