Currently a senior.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Currently a senior.New Jersey City University is a good school.A lot of the students here have busy schedules and work full or part time.NJCU understands this and offers lots of night classes for people with work obligations.It isn't your typical 4 year party school. NJCU is perfect for someone who is motivated and wants to earn a degree without all of the social distractions. The students here are approachable and pretty much friendly, but most of the students here come to learn, and get a degree, not just sit around.

Classes are fairly difficult and thier are some amazing professors as well. The greatest thing about the professors at this school is that most of them really care about you and your success and most will bend over backward to help you if you ask.The school is only a train ride from nyc which is a plus.They have a great CO-OP program, and a excellent fitness facility.I'd definitely recommends NJCU to students who are motivated towards success.

I attended Parson's School of Design originally andQuite BrightArt & Design Department
I attended Parson's School of Design originally and transferred to NJCU because it was closer to home. What a great decision! The profs actually have time and make time to work with students outside of class; are actually available and interested in mentoring. They inform and encourage students to take advantage of experience opportunities. The Art & Design Association (a club) is a great group of really smart motivated students who are interested in furthering themselves as artists. NJCU has a close-knit family feel that wasn't present or available at Parson's. I highly suggest looking into it if you are looking for a really good art education and are interested in being 2 miles from NYC. It's a great experience and the price is a quarter of the high end art schools in the city!

I think this school is great for aQuite BrightFinance
I think this school is great for a particular type of person. It works well for me because I commute to night classes, which they offer alot of. Professors and students are generally very friendly and easy to work with. One of the other reviewers was right when he said most students are from the surrounding area, but that's because it's a commuter school and you should expect that. Parking isn't too bad if you figure out the right time to try to get into the parking deck, and they do have a few options for food(cafeteria has subway and 2 other types, the lounge makes sandwiches and hamburgers, and there are 2 lunch trucks and a diner right there). Tuition is cheap and financial aid is readily available. The bad parts about the school are the clubs and extras. The school tries to recruit students for clubs, but often things are cancelled due to low turnout since the students commute(But they do try and they are available). Overall, it's good for someone who wants to get a degree without getting overloaded with busywork and doesn't mind sacrificing school social life.
