I can only speak for the business school,Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I can only speak for the business school, but MSU is a total waste of money. Its mostly a commuter school with a few pretty buildings. In fact, all they talk about are their new buildings, but the coursework is a joke. Most of my classmates are losers who should be working at Target. I studied harder in high school, and my school wasn't considered good! I get As and Bs, but anyone can if they just show up. Parking is ridiculous. When you complain, they tell you to come earlier. Well I work and already get to school over an hour early. My dad said that Montclair used to be better, but now it has gone downhill in the last 10 - 15 years.

Every college makes their coursework much greater thanAverageOther
Every college makes their coursework much greater than high school even montclair state. I think going here for a program other than teaching, business, biology or the arts is a waste of your time. All the other programs have no national recognition what so ever and the education in them is nothing new or challenging at all from high school but of course any colege that doesn't make the forbes list will be the same. There is a lot of diversity in every race at the school. Thre are the mixture of harder working people who don't fool around, and are inspired and want to learn and then the other kids who still act like entitled teenagers and idots. If I went to a more prestigious college, there might be less of the latter. To recap this, you really do feel like you are going to high school again being with kids who don't understand the concept of college work . I feel like I am wth some of the same kids in high school, adults who don't pay attention in class, sitll acting like whiny children who don't want to do their work and then act like they deserve a good grade and wonder why it didn't happen. I kind of wish I went to a college with people who were actually not ignorant but mature. Parking here does suck which is why I commute on a bus. Take a bus or train, it is easier.

Pretty buildings, but the education is a joke. I attended a CC and MSU courses don't match up. The new entrepreneurship center teaches you nothing, but the classes are fun. Many professors don't speak English well. MSU is mostly a commuter school, so parking is an absolute nightmare. I've missed more classes than I can count, because I couldn't get parking.
