"I went to NJCU from 2008-2011 and I must say it was very interesting. Getting to all your classes was easy because the campus isn't that big and that made it easy getting to your classes without being late. The teachers are awesome and are always willing to help you when they are free. My advisor was always helpful and was always making sure that I was on top of things especially towards my senior year when it was time to graduate."

"The Political Science department is pretty small, it's like a tight knit community. Many of the professors come from different backgrounds such as law, policy, international relations, public relations, journalism etc, The networking opportunities are endless."

"I love New Jersey City University because the diversity on the campus allowed me to grow through learning about cultural differences and expanding on those new experiences and encounters. I now have the pleasure of studying School Counseling with a diverse, and professional staff."

"College was a difficulty process for me because I had to deal with many things such as dealing with a lot of paper work of financial aid, hard professors who were not good educators and sometimes did not do a good job at teaching. Long commute back and forth from home, school to work made it hard too. There was a lot of work long papers, researching many topics difficult exams, midterms. It was a lot of hard work. Now if it was worth it? for me it wasn't worth it because apart from getting a degree a person needs to have the motivation to succeed and move ahead despite the obstacles. I graduated and I have my degree, but I don't have a good job or earn a lot of money. so all that crap about needing a college education is pointless. Its better to sign up for some type of training two years or so and I think it works out better than going to college for four years or more. If you have the motivation and you want to go to college go ahead. It didn't work out for me unfortunately."

"I feel that my graduate program is one the best. The instructors or kind and very helpful. I do not regret my decision to be in the counseling program. My only issue is that I don't receive enough money to pay for my graduate career. It is a struggle, but I do the best I can to manage."

"This is a small class education where you can learn and interact with the faculty. However, there is still room of improvement on the quality of education, financial aid and student benefits."

"I know the professors are caring and are available to talk whether it is personal or for class purposes. I am not familiar with offices of financial aid since we use net portal to communicate. I do know that your emails do get addressed right away. This school has been around for many of years and was the where my old teachers received their education from."
