William Paterson University of New Jersey Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
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.
