"Mason Gross is a tough school, but it teaches you a lot of valuable skills for the real world. I appreciated getting knowledge in all aspects of theatre, and how much I actually got to stage manage shows."

"Rutgers has a tremendous amount of resources, but more importantly, io has great fellow students. More than just a research university, the faculty and staff greatly support you if you want to accomplish something big beyond the typical course work. The one drawback is that it's difficult to know who you should work with if you want to build cross-curricular skills (READ: tech and entrepreneurial opportunities), but if you really care, you'll do the leg work."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2006
"In retrospect, I realized that I have used only a few things I learned at college and wished there weren't required electives. I'm sure other majors (like Engineering and Business) use things they learned at school at their jobs. Now, college is so expensive that I have changed my opinion that a college education is needed."

"I attended Rutgers University in Camden, NJ. I feel that I received a great education with dedicated professors, small class sizes, and a university that was conveniently located to my home and work."

"At Rutgers, there's great diversity not only among the student population, but in variety of classes, clubs, and activities. Get yourself involved with all sorts of clubs and activities to meet people and find your interests. Otherwise, it's easy to get lost in the crowd since it's such a big school."

"I believe Rutgers supplies a great education overall, however serious consideration should be given to choice of major and the post-graduation experience. I believe it is important to try and get practical experience in the field you are interested in so that you are in a good place when you graduate, rather than confused and undesirable due to lack of experience and a degree that isn't very useful. Educate yourself on the financial aspect of a college education as well; use loans sparingly and with caution. Make sure you understand the terms and are aware of how they will impact you when you graduate...avoid a large debt burden at all costs-it is the last thing you need when you graduate. Make sure the loan amount you take out makes sense for your future career and realistic for the job you plan on holding. No one ever explained this well to me."

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2013
"I completed a BA majoring in English at Rutgers University in New Brunswick. While I enjoyed many of my classes, the focus was a bit too much like checking off requirements, making a good amount of the course content feel arbitrary. I went on to complete a Master of Education program at Rutgers focusing in English Education, so my BA experience was both required and helpful. I like Rutgers because there is great diversity in what one is able to study within the same school, and I wish I had time and financial support to stay longer and broaden my experience beyond my major of choice."

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2013
"Rutgers is a good school for subjects like business, pharmacy, nursing and engineering. Other than that, you shouldn't waste time with liberal arts or even the sciences (speech or physical therapy). Good bang for your buck and the experience is what you make of it. Study abroad with rutgers was fantastic"
