The campus is beautiful, the faculty is helpful

Oct 28 2013Education
The campus is beautiful, the faculty is helpful (for the most part) and the students are easy to get along with. The courses in the education department are challenging but rewarding (aside from gen eds). But the biggest gripe I have with this school is the lack of nightlife and greek-life, there's not much to do on Thursday through Saturday nights unless you can afford to go to a club every week. It's a suitcase college for good reason.Bottom line, this school is all work and no play. Yes, indeed Jack is a very dull boy.

Montclair State University students can be very harsh

Dec 20 2013Education
Montclair State University students can be very harsh on their school. You are getting a great education, especially if you're going for teaching. The most important thing to remember is that this school is what you make of it. You can go out every weekend, I do, but you need to make friends. There is a big club scene but it's not the only option. There are definitely a lot of things academically and recreationally to be involved in. The biggest issue is that a lot of the students are unmotivated and fall behind. There isn't much organization in the advising department. You need to go straight to the head of your major if you don't have a good advisor. If you are motivated and willing to advocate for yourself you can have a great experience at Montclair State University.

I went to Montclair for 3 years after

Oct 21 2013Communications
I went to Montclair for 3 years after transferring from Brookdale. It's a bitter/sweet school the campus and most of the teaching staff are great in many majors. However, the downfall here is the administration. President Susan Cole is hell bent on eliminating all aspects of social life that do not have to do with clubs on campus. She is on the verge of eliminating Greek Life who have a current graduation rate of around 85% and hold many of the social events on campus. She has taken from the sports teams to gain corporate sponsors and a PSENG power center. The campus is beautiful and the dorms are wonderful, although very strict and the food suffers because of it. Also, many of the academic building are falling apart due to lack of care. Montclair likes to build not fix!!!! Overall, the teaching staff and networking are great, and I loved my time there, but with the current administration many of the things that made the school great are disappearing, including school spirit. My fear is it will soon fall of many incoming freshman's list of top schools.
