"The political science department and Rutgers provided amazing networking opportunities, leading to many of my internships. Rutgers is connected to so many of the most important people in New Jersey and national politics. Succeeding at Rutgers felt easy."

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017
"Rutgers provides a diversity of learning options that allow traditional and non-traditional students alike to achieve their education goals. I pursued a degree in Labor studies to gather a better understanding of the "human condition" as it relates to work and the economy. Additionally, I chose Rutgers to further my understanding of how to quantify these facets of people and their work by pursuing their Master of Information program with a focus on Data Science. I hope to be able to apply some predictive analytics to the art of management and Labor interaction."

"Rutgers provided me with a boundless amount of diversity and opportunities. Through my time as a Douglass Residential Scholar and a School of Arts and Sciences Honors scholar, I was given the opportunity to experience both large classroom environments and smaller, more intimate academic settings with my like-minded peers. The professors are very passionate about what they teach and they are extremely invested in student success. I really loved how the sectioning off of campuses allowed for smaller and more intimate experiences within a much larger institution. I learned a great deal and was given both academic and extracurricular opportunities (mentorship, tutoring, etc.) that expanded both my personal horizons and my resume. I would recommend others to attend Rutgers for either their graduate or undergraduate education."

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

"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."

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2008
"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!"

Degree: Spanish
Graduation Year: 2009
"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."
