| DON'T GO HERE. I transferred here and it disgusts me that I was tricked into going to this school. The only positive thing I can say is that there are some great professors. There is nothing to do on campus, so many kids commute and the night life is awful. |
They tell you that you can take the train to NYC, but forget to mention that the train from the University doesn't run from Friday night until Monday morning. Nice, right? Don't fall for their tricks. Montclair is a JOKE. The sports are a joke. The students are a joke. If you want to spend your days in the dorm and hate life then definitely go here. If not, then please look elsewhere. I am not even exaggerating... I transferred here in hopes of going to an instate diverse school that was located near the city..... I was so wrong. This school sickens me. I am counting down the days until I graduate and I have only been here for one semester. Honestly, I would only recommend this school if you don't care about having a social life. If you are going to college just to graduate (not to make friends, have a good time, meet people and branch out, open your mind, join clubs, get involved with sports, etc) then go here. Otherwise, AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID. THIS SCHOOL IS A JOKE.
I really don't fill these kinds of things out but I felt the need to warn the potential students because the school tricks you. Ps- if you dont believe me, check out collegeprowler and what Montclair State is rated on "Overall Student Happiness" ..... Yup.

| If I were you, I wouldn't come here if you would like the overall "college" experience. Everyone commutes and for me it was very hard to make friends. Everyone is always to themselves and is only there to go to class. Luckily I knew people from my high school going here, so I didn't have a hard time having friends. Although the parties suck, and there is absolutely nothing to do on weekends. Since the semester started I have only stayed on campus one weekend. I literally go home every weekend because I cant stand being here on the weekend doing nothing. All I do is sit in my room and do homework. To go anywhere you need your car and the campus is literally on a mountain. Its always cold and windy and the walks to class are TERRIBLE. There are so many steps and walking around construction gets irritating after a while. The food here sucks and you literally have to pay for everything. The only thing good at first is the diner on campus, but then you get sick of that food too. I am currently a freshman here and i am most definitely transferring next year. There are people here that absolutely love it, but I would just have to disagree with their opinion. If you don't mind being bored and focus on your school work 24/7 then this is the place for you. Class sizes are great and the amount of work is manageable. Goodluck! |

| This school makes me suicidal. The people here are all assholes. Everyone just cares about themselves. Its hard to make friends. The school is mostly commuters so everyone goes home after class. There is ZERO people on campus on the weekends. There are no parties. Just forget about a social life. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO ON CAMPUS. If your shy and dont like human contact, go here.. The food is good at first and then it sucks because the same things are served every day. Cops are assholes and give you a ticket for everything. Parking blows so if your a commuter, good luck. There's constantly construction going on which makes it impossible to get around campus. No one comes here and says they love the school. People either come here because its close to home, its cheap, or they have no where else to go. Im a freshman and I hate this school more than anything. Ive never had a hatred for something so much in my life. If you want to have a good time in college and actually love where you are and what your doing, dont go here. I have more fun at home with my dog than I do on campus here on the weekends. I play a sport too which just restricts me from having fun more. The heights are nice but they come with a lot of problems too. Girls here are not A+ material...and guys are even worse. Basically this is probably the worst possible school ever. dont come here. You were warned. |
