"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."

"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."

"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."

"After finishing the biological sciences program at Rowan University, I would personally recommend it to future biological students. First of all, I would recommend the program due to their hands on approach in the lab, their plethra of qualified professors, and their small class sizes. In my opinion, an optimal method of learning is actually performing the labs yourself and seeing the information you're learning in the book before your eyes. For example, in my organic classes, one could learn the reactions by only doing them on paper. However, the labs helped to reinforce the material when I saw the product being created during lab. In terms of professors, my experience has been very good. Rowan hires knowledgeable professors in their respective fields and mixing this with the small class sizes allows me to recieve one-on-one help from someone who really knows what they are talking about. I'm not suprised that Rowan University has been growing significantly over the past number of years and I believe this trend has been due to their commitment to improve their programs."

"Overall, Rowan University was able to prove me with a well rounded education. The Chemistry & Biochemistry department offered plenty of resources to gain experience such as in research, which benefits anyone looking to go into research or industry. There are multiple opportunities to get involved and learn hands on while still gaining a valuable education. As the school has gone through a reorganization with the addition of the graduate school in Stradford, it has opened up even more opportunities to further education. In addition, the classroom sizes for the sciences courses were size, which aids in learning and networking. The size of the class was definitely a factor for me, I learn better in smaller class environments because you have more opportunity to ask questions and be recognized by the professor. I would recommend this school to any individual looking to go into Chemistry or Biochemistry."

"Rowan isn't a horrible school, but there are things that don't make it a great school. To begin there is a lack of diversity. I have never felt more like a minority more than I do at Rowan. Next the are not very transfer student friendly. A lot of information that I have found was by another student what is unfortunate is that I have attended many of the workshops, yet I still felt like i didn't know anything. The advisers are overworked and overwhelmed with students and its obvious. Sometimes you;ll have to schedule months in advance to meet with someone. They have a lot of great events such as career fairs, school events and weekly events--but again for some of these you have to be in the know to know. I would recommend Rowan to freshmen, but not to transfer students,"

"Rowan is a great and warm school in southern New Jersey. I was challenged academically as a STEM major, however, the extracurricular opportunities I was offered at Rowan are what helped me stand out as a candidate in the post graduate world. Through student clubs and compassionate advisors I formed a solid and well rounded base with great interpersonal and leadership skills many others did not have."
