I went to NJCU from 2008-2011 and I must say it was very interesting. Getting to all your classes was easy because the campus isn't that big and that made it easy getting to your classes without being late. The teachers are awesome and are always willing to help you when they are free. My advisor was always helpful and was always making sure that I was on top of things especially towards my senior year when it was time to graduate.
