Rutgers University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (51)
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!
Rutgers' undergraduate Political Science program helped pave the way for fine tuning skills of critical thinking, writing, and hard work. Memorable professors, current events, and historic precedent all made this program engaging and interesting. This is why I chose to further my education by entering the Masters program for Public Administration 2017 at Rutgers.
I loved my college experience at Rutgers. I loved the dorms and meeting all different types of smart people ranging from students and professors. I loved the food, and I loved the quality of education. I loved the physics professors and classes. The lessons hit the right spot. They left you feeling satisfied, as if you just had an awesome meal. Definitely recommend RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PHYSICS DEPARTMENT. They will not disappoint you. REPPING RU ALL THE WAY!!
Rutgers University is a fantastic diverse school that will help you prepare for your future. My classes, internships, and field work were key experiences that Rutgers provided me to explore my passion and find my path. I made lots of connections for networking and now attend an MSW program because of my extensive resume and skills learned throughout my four years. I had an amazing time professionally and also made many life long friends. Rutgers is the perfect school because you get to develop your career, but also have so many opportunities to get involved on campus.
Rutgers University is perhaps the most diverse university in the country. A huge campus spanning several cities around the Raritan river, Rutgers provides students with countless opportunities to find out what he or she is truly passionate about. Do not let their private fleet of huge buses intimidate. It takes 1 week to get used to it, but it'll be worth it!
Rutgers was a great next step out of high school but life was confusing as an undergrad and the academic advising and guidance as to how to be a healthy functional adult was very limited. It took a lot of introspection and self-study to gain an idea of what I wanted to do after graduating from my bachelors degree. I was placed on Cook Campus my freshmen year, which is very pretty and tranquil outdoors. The dorm was nice but the dining hall sets you up for definitely gaining the freshmen +15. Not that ALL of the food was unhealthy but the excess and the plentifully variety was a little much. Freshmen and sophomore year were messy, lots of partying and lots unhealthy interaction. I blindly joined a sorority totally not worth it. Expect for helping my drinking problem and lack of desire for doing anything with my life, the sorority life did little more for me. I actually had to pay thousands of dollars to get out of it. Now that I think back, it was probably some kind of scam but Im a stickler for obeying rules and being respectful. So, I did what was demanded to leave that part of life behind me. Thankfully I found study abroad during my junior and senior year and had the opportunity to study in Spain and Mexico. I highly recommend studying abroad, as it changed my perspective of the world and therefore my entire life. The Rutgers Spain Study Abroad Program was excellently put together. I cant say the same about the Mexico Study Abroad Program.
R U RAH RAH! Rutgers is best known for its diversity. It is ranked very high as one of the best schools in the country. My experience was such an eye opener and made me get involved on and off campus. Rutgers helped me get out of my shell and now I am a social butterfly. Academically, Rutgers professors are very helpful and want you to excel (well at least mine did). There are many services provided, if you need tutoring or resume building, everything is at your disposal. Overall, I must say that I am proud to have graduated from Rutgers and now I am back to Rutgers for my Masters.
I attended Rutgers University where there were 50,000 students. The campus is in an urban area which isn't really a pleasant atmosphere. The New Brunswick campus is 45 minutes on the train to Manhattan, New York. The work curriculum was very challenging. There are good professors as well as unkind and possibly strange professors. The resources the school provides for financial support isn't that great. Scholarships aren't advertised in the school.
Rutgers is the state college of New Jersey and offers more majors than you can choose from. They prepare their students very well for their respective fields . I had many opportunities to network and the career services office , did a great job of helping me apply to medical school when the time came . There are so many ways to connect with students of similar interest and majors , including living learning communities and on campus clubs/organizations . Rutgers has something for everyone .
I did my undergraduate and currently my graduate at rutgers. The school is huge and getting to class can be stressful with traffic and crowds. The meal plan is awesome and the, depending on your major, professors are great although there is apparent favoritism. I would and do recommend the school for people who want to get out and meet a lot of people and get a good education while having fun. You have to be outgoing to go here or else you will get lost in the shuffle
