Student & Graduate Reviews

JENNY LACHIRA - 7/19/2017
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2012
"Rutgers provided me with the perfect platform and tools to learn analytical skills and grow as a professional. I had to fund my own education and therefore, I worked almost 40 hrs a week. As rigorous as the program was, it gave me the flexibility to accommodate my classes in a way that I had time to attend school and work simultaneously. Professors were very understanding of special circumstances and worked with you to help you achieve your goals."

Jacquelyn McFarland - 6/11/2017
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015
"The only recommendation I would have is to attend all of the career workshops and fairs that the department hosts. There aren't many of them, but they are really good quality and can help you network to find a job prior to graduation. Classes were well-taught and professors were more than willing to help their students."

"Love this school and it completely prepared me to enter the job market. I made a career change and my undergrad has nothing to do with my Master Program however all the teaching staff were excellent at making sure that I would graduate and be confident with my new chosen career"

Christopher Ramos - 5/1/2017
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017
"I got the opportunity to go to both the Rutgers Newark campus as well as the Rutgers New Brunswick campus as well. I enjoyed both campuses but there were significant different between the two due to both the sizes as well as the organizational aspect of both. Newark is a much smaller campus that does benefit from having small classrooms as well as more of a feeling of a community while New Brunswick is significantly smaller and has seemingly endless things to do. What can be said about both campuses from my experience is prepare to be challenged to grow into a leader both on campus and into your career as well."

Lorena Garcia - 3/30/2017
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: Liberal Studies
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."

Devanshi Mehta - 3/14/2017
Degree: 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."
