Kean University - Comments and Student Experiences |
While I have had rather good experiences with the full-time faculty members of my department, they are few and far between. In the English department alone, there are less than 20 full-time professors and around 100 adjunct 'faculty'. As the Kean administration focuses on physical rather than academic expansion, available resources stretch thinner and thinner. Full-time faculty becomes less available while uncaring, unattentive, and academically inept adjuncts teach upper-level and graduate courses. Students at Kean are paying nearly eight grand each year and are taught by high school teachers, lawyers, accountants, and part-time professors teaching at anywhere from five to ten schools rather than by actual scholars.
At Kean we are not students, we are customers purchasing $32,000 pieces of paper. Kean is not a university, it is a papermill.
I would encourage anyone who reads this not to go to Kean. You can have a good experience here--I have established good relationships with a large portion of faculty in the English department, have gotten involved in university politics and extracurriculars, have taken challenging classes taught by actual academics, and as a result have gotten into a good graduate school that I will attend in the fall. If you can wade through the administrative filth and the desolate situation of the school, you should be OK. I wouldn't want to go through this experience again.
