Stockton University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (15)
Stockton is a very welcoming school, like a home away from home. It is known to be more of a liberal arts school, however, their science department is growing. They have an awesome physical therapy and occupational therapy program. The main campus is beautiful and their new Atlantic City campus should be ready by fall of 2018.
I am going to be very real in this review. I think the things I will talk about will hopefully help someone not got through what I did. Stockton as a whole is a good school, but my experience in the health science major was not the best. My major was in Health Sciences with a concentration in communication disorders. My plan was to become a speech-language pathologist. I do not feel that Stockton had adequately prepared me for what came after graduation. No one prepared us for how difficult it was to get into graduate school. My first try I was rejected by 12 schools including Stockton. It stung, but I was not willing to give up. The following year I applied again to 12 schools. I was rejected to all but two. I was now wait listed to two schools, one of which was Stockton. A few months went by and I heard nothing. Unfortunately, those two wait lists did not pan out in my favor. I decided to keep on trying as giving up was not something I was willing to do. For the third and final time, I received a letter from Stockton. The letter was an official rejection. I could not understand how I was wait listed one year and than rejected the next. I was another year wiser, had another year of volunteering/work experience. I was very frustrated to say the least. I took it upon myself to reach out to my alma mater and ask for some answers as to why this happened. I was very displeased when they sent back a generic letter with no real reason why this had happened. This is the reason I could not give Stockton a rave review. I expected more from the university I had attended and loved for my undergraduate career. I had hoped that they would want to keep connected and help out their alumni. I am pleased to say I did receive three acceptances my third year trying. So, my second piece of advice for those going through what I did is to not give up. I hope this helps!
Great school but of there are things that need to be worked on such as departmental staff and how they speak to the students . Class size was great and the professors would go over and beyond to make sure you felt confident in your work. I think a great addition to the school would be child care for students.
Stockton University is an amazing academic institution. This school has not only advanced my knowledge but has given me the opportunity to network with professionals throughout New Jersey. I will always be grateful for the experience I have had at Stockton as a student and a campus leader. I feel prepared going into the field as a Social Worker and prepared entering my Master's program for Advanced Clinical Practice.
As a member of the military, I have to say Stockton University is extremely veteran friendly. They really treated us like a cut above for what we did and we appreciated it. Besides that, Stockton does indeed give a great education. I genuinely felt that my mastery of the French language (my field of study) was improved. I now traverse France as a local with my language skills. A large part of that is to Stockton University. Donc, merci bien!
When I wanted growth, Stockton gave me the tools to find myself. When I wanted diversity, Stockton provided me with an African American Studies minor. When I needed advice, Stockton had fantastic advisors with a multitude of experience. When I was facing anxiety about attending a new school, Stockton met me with warm smiling faces and a small enough campus that it never felt overwhelming. Stockton was and will forever be a place I think of fondly and recommend to anyone looking to not only explore themselves, but also different facets of life. As a domestic violence case manager who is working towards her LPC and eventual PSY.D, I walk proudly knowing I would not be where I am without the individuals I encountered at Stockton University.
Pursuing my Marine Science degree at Stockton University in New Jersey prepared me for a career working in the marine science field, and pursuing my masters in the field. The course work was taught both in the classroom and in the field. Employers like to see that you have experience in the field working hands on. I would highly recommended high school students that want to go into the field of marine science to look into Stockton University for their college.
Stockton is a small school. You will get the benefits of small class sizes, dedicated professors, and knowing a good majority of the people in your program. With the small school you are able to get recommendation letters from professors who actually know who you are. You network with your classmates who may be co-workers or resources for you in the future. You even know the food service people by name. Stockton is a quality education at an affordable price, that any student would be lucky to go to.
Stockton University's education provided me the stepping stone I need to gain more opportunities in the world. It's a place where you can build dreams and begin a story unlike any one could have imagined. It's definitely a school to appreciate and love. I enjoyed my time at Stockton. It's a place that really helps you move towards bigger and better dreams. It was my stepping stone before going off into a masters and law degree program. For the many who aren't sure, I'd say give it a shot. It's a place where many came to dream and where many have left achieving.
I had an excellent experience at Stockton, particularly because of the professors. Every single professor I had was engaging and clearly cared about their students. They were sure to make themselves available outside of class to help with the material or give advice. I created my own major through the LIBA degree, so I worked closely with professors from a variety of departments, and had nothing but positive experiences. The small class sizes were another advantage because it gave students and professors the opportunity to get to know each other in the classroom. Another huge strength of the school is its location. I was lucky enough to live on campus, and the simple act of walking home through the Pine Barrens every day was an opportunity to take a deep breath and unwind on stressful days. There are also a bunch of other trails to hike on if you want some more outdoor time. I loved getting to see the turtles, ducks, herons, and other wildlife that live on campus. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to build relationships with their peers and professors, live somewhere beautiful, and get a well-rounded education.
