John Doe - 11/12/2019
Degree: Science & Math
Graduation Year: 2025
"This has to be the worst school. I am a student that has a disability and I would avoid this school. Parking is terrible and will continue to get worse. Even though this college is putting up more buildings, they are not building any more parking lots. As for campus security, they do nothing and would rather write parking tickets. Most of the teachers and staff i have met are rude and do not want to teach or help their students be successful. Do not believe the lies the administration tells you. The administration needs to be more proactive and listen to their students and give them the resources they need to be successful. I can not wait to get out of this school with my degree and I regret coming here."

"RowanSOM offers a great medical program. They have an abundance of resources and they do a fantastic job of selecting a well-rounded student body. The curriculum is tailored well for board exams during second year. They have a pass/fail grading system as well as non-mandatory classes. This is super helpful as it saves hundreds of hours."

"This college has a wonderful and supportive staff that helps students throughout the process of obtaining their degree. The classes in the Music department were great in preparing students for a future career as music teachers, performers, and a variety of special degree programs. You will receive a great education."

Victoria Brady - 6/3/2019
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018
"I loved Rowan University. I went there from September 2015 to December 2018, and I walked in May 2019. During my time there, I really found my place. It is the perfect size; big enough to have ample opportunities but small enough that you are not just a number. You are able to make connections and join clubs, and soon enough it will feel like a second home."

Student1979 - 4/2/2019
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018
"This school is a whole entire mess! The only thing its good for is the career fairs! 1/2 of the professors do NOT care about the students, its all about the numbers ($)! Parking is a big issue and its ridiculous that they wont address it but continues to suggest we pay $140 for a parking permit when there is clearly no parking. A friend of mine overheard 2 over the top professors that run the L&J dept saying that they need to figure out how to get more out of the students as if the $75 parking tickets and over priced books arent enough! I would never recommend this place to anyone. Wish I would have went with my 1st instinct and chose Stockton. My personal opinion based off of my experience. Good luck to anyone who attends..."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2020
"This school was absolute trash. I went to rowan from Fall 2016-Summer 2018 and it was the worst school I have been to hands down. The campus is nice and some of the dorms are nice and new, however, nobody is willing to help ever. I had changed majors a year into my degree and they had me seeing 3 different advisors telling me to take 3 different plans to graduate. My freshman year we did not have the opportunity to change our schedules, so pretty much what they gave you is what you got. I was "requires" to take pre-calculus but later found out it wasn't required. Since then, I had transferred to UCF, where their advisors give you a plan of study and it is consistent and clear. I had been asked to obtain two syllabi for transfer credits from Rowan. When I had called Rowan's registrar they had transferred me to a department and nobody answered the phone, I left my name and phone number and they had not called me back (it's been about a week), so I called about two more times and still no answer. The people running this school are trash and they are not willing to help at all. I wouldn't recommend this school to my worst enemy! Absolutely horrible."

Hunter Sacco - 12/30/2018
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2011
"Rowan University was a terrific school for engineer majors back when I was attending. The engineer program was very tough and had many real world problems presented for projects. Most of the teachers were very knowledgeable of their subject matter and wanted their students to succeed while simultaneously pushing everyone with difficult course work and loads. I spent two years in an engineering major before switching to chemistry and although I believe the chemistry program was less comprehensive than the engineering program, it was still a great discipline to study their. I would also like to mention that even though the school was small back when I was there, it still had a lot of activities, community events, and social gatherings."

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2013
"Such a great program! Really hands on experience with very small class sizes. I loved having the opportunity to work in studios, learning various techniques and different art mediums while also being able to be in classrooms. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in the field of art education. Since I've graduated, the campus has really evolved in a positive way. There are so many restaurants, new dorms, shops, bookstores, even hotels."

Mohammed Shakarchi - 4/29/2018
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017
"It was a beautiful science program where I learned the basic of Biology along with the lab work associated with it. Anyone with an interest in Science, particularly studying the human body and the way it functions should consider the Biological Sciences program at Rowan University. I had an exciting experience and great professors that taught me many important concepts that I will be forever grateful for. College is also about what you put into it and how hard you are willing to work. I will say this, if you are willing to learn, do the work, listen to your professors' advice and work along side with them, then you will undoubtedly have a great experience and learn a lot. You will definitely be prepared for your next career or graduate/professional school. Whatever it is that you will be willing to accomplish, make sure you utilize the sources that are given to you and try to make the best out of your four years there. One thing I would certainly recommend to anyone that is planning on attending college is getting involved on campus. Join a club or two, be part of an organization, play sports if you're good at them, be active and social. Talking and meeting new people is a great way to have friends on campus which will later lead to successful networking. I would also recommend taking a few electives outside of your field; having knowledge and being familiar with what the other fields of study offer is a great way to broaden your knowledge and intelligence."

Zulibette Adorno - 1/8/2018
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2013
"Rowan University is a great school. Classes I would say are no more than 30 students. The Professors I had in the Sociology program were great. They were always willing to help and they encouraged their students to go out and help people/causes in your local community or world. They have clubs that also go along with your major so you can meet other people with the same interest and ambitions as you. For me the sociology program gave me insight in working with disadvantaged individuals which later on prepared me for what I would do working at Salvation Army and a mental health facility. Overall if you are someone who loves to help others and encourage others who sometimes have no hope a major in sociology is great. I do suggest going for your Masters degree because many jobs require it. On a last note It is also convenient for those who live in the South Jersey and Philadelphia area as you can commute and save money by not having to live on campus."
