Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2014

My favorite part of attending Rutgers University (New Brunswick Campus) was the diverse student population. I had the opportunity to meet people from all different parts of the world, by attending cultural events on campus and joining clubs. There was a great emphasis on networking during career fairs, which is a skill I still use today! If you are unsure what to major in, Rutgers provides a wide variety of introduction classes to learn more about different career options. And if you are interested in doing research as an undergrad or even if you have no idea what research entails, Rutgers has many research opportunities for its students. Overall, Rutgers provides an affordable and quality education, which I felt prepared me for graduate school.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2012

Rutgers University was great place to learn. I entered through the Educational Opportunity Fund program and received academic and financial assistance which really assisted me in studying on an equal playing field. I developed some great friendships and fostered mentorship opportunities from my professors. An undergraduate experience is really about being involved on-campus and studying what you enjoy and working hard at it.

Degree: American Sign Language (ASL)
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of New Mexico has a lot to offer; however, you have to be willing to seek out the hidden gems. Some of UNM's instruction can be extremely lackluster as you progress through general graduation requirements, but once you find your niche and your field of study, it is a great place to be.

Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2006

Rutgers University is easily one of the regions top universities for the sciences. Not only was my degree liked upon favorably by recruiting companies, but I still receive complements when I mention that I have a science degree from Rutgers. I was able to work for the University while studying to improve my skill set and I was hired a month before graduation.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

Rutgers University was a wonderful school. There is diversity everywhere from faculty to students. It is a huge campus with great opportunities. Although, it is a big campus there are many school organizations that help you feel apart of a smaller and closer community.

Degree: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Graduation Year: 2011

Rutgers University, New Brunswick is an excellent state university. It is very diverse, with many helpful resources and intellectual faculty. Molecular biology and biochemistry is an excellent major for anyone interested in research. The professors in the department are very knowledgeable and helpful. I learned many fascinating things about our body at molecular level through the courses in the major. I highly recommend this major for anyone who is curious about how our bodies function at a molecular level. It is a credit intensive major with many rigorous coursework.

Degree: Labor Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Rutgers provides a diversity of learning options that allow traditional and non-traditional students alike to achieve their education goals. I pursued a degree in Labor studies to gather a better understanding of the "human condition" as it relates to work and the economy. Additionally, I chose Rutgers to further my understanding of how to quantify these facets of people and their work by pursuing their Master of Information program with a focus on Data Science. I hope to be able to apply some predictive analytics to the art of management and Labor interaction.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Rutgers provided me with a boundless amount of diversity and opportunities. Through my time as a Douglass Residential Scholar and a School of Arts and Sciences Honors scholar, I was given the opportunity to experience both large classroom environments and smaller, more intimate academic settings with my like-minded peers. The professors are very passionate about what they teach and they are extremely invested in student success. I really loved how the sectioning off of campuses allowed for smaller and more intimate experiences within a much larger institution. I learned a great deal and was given both academic and extracurricular opportunities (mentorship, tutoring, etc.) that expanded both my personal horizons and my resume. I would recommend others to attend Rutgers for either their graduate or undergraduate education.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2014

I was so fortunate to have attended Rutgers for my undergraduate degree. As a local New Jerseyan, it was a tough decision. There are dozens of colleges and universities in the tri-state area alone, and the level of competition among schools along the East Coast is intense. Having good grades and excellent recommendations, I knew I had choices. I flew as far as Arizona and aspired as high as Princeton! But in the end, the culture of inclusiveness, of academic prowess dating back to the the pre-Revolutionary War area, all for a more than reasonable price in comparison to like schools made choosing Rutgers a no-brainer. The research opportunities, student involvement activities, and networking possibilities are boundless in this massive five-campus school. I highly recommend Rutgers to anyone, especially if you live out of state!
