"I may have admired two of the many teachers I had here. A good amount of them were rude and terrible teachers, should not be nurses or teachers. My gf went to community for nursing and I believe she received the better education wpu is expensive, the school itself had many flaws they need to figure out. Had us in class for most of the week never teaching anything even close to the exam, classes were a waste of time only that they got me to my end game. If this is the school you get into it, of course take it. If there are other options, look into them. Morris county comm has a great program I've heard. Not to mention a few other communities in NJ having a much better program than here."

"Going to William Paterson was such a rewarding experience. I got to study business on their business campus which was very high tech. Most of my professors were so knowledgeable and really prepared you for the real world. Every staff member really helped me along the journey. My academic adviser helped me devise a plan to graduate in the time frame that I wanted. The business classes really helped me out. I still remember some of the concepts from my marketing class. The capstone class taught me so much about evaluating business and innovation necessary to compete and stay relevant. I really loved my teachers, classes and classmates while attending. I could not have had a more positive experience.The campus was beautiful as well. They were really focused on improving campus life and were doing that. They were expanding parking and building a brand-new science hall that would be state of the art. It is done by now.The only negatives I could think of was the parking situation on campus. For a commuter student, I was often late for classes while I looked for parking. I believe they were considering adding a parking deck on campus to help with this problem. The same as not true about the business campus. Parking here was phenomenal. The student center was beautiful, and I often like dining at the Burger King on campus. I had never stepped foot into a dorm room but heard from people who lived there that they could use a little updating."

"William Paterson University is a great college that is very welcoming to new students. I transferred in as a junior with my associate's degree from community college. Even for transfer students, they are always looking for ways to include you in the student population. they have a special honor society called Tau Sigma specifically for transfer students who earn a 3.5 GPA or higher their first semester at WPU. Events are held on campus often and there are always activities during common hour on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The professors that I have had have been truly wonderful. They really care about your success and want to see you succeed. They were always available for extra help and answered emails pretty promptly. WPU is a very big commuter school, so the parking is free, which is a bonus! Overall, I enjoyed my two years at William Paterson University. It is a great, lower-cost school."

"I would highly recommend attending this university specifically if you are interested in the business field. The have an entire building dedicated to business majors. The curriculum was challenging but you will learn what you need in order to thrive in your field. The professors are all very helpful and encouraging. They are a great resource if you looking for guidance with anything."

"When taking William Paterson University courses at Mercer County Community College you will initially feel a little neglected but you shouldn't. The staff that is assigned to work with WPU@MCCC students are very dedicated to the job and to your future success. As long as your are dedicated and motivated you will be fine. One issue I had with the program is that there is only one option for each of the courses for WPU@MCCC students, you don't have a choice of when you get to take the class, there is only one to choose so you have to adjust your schedule accordingly."
