Terrible, can't wait to transfer. Depressing and repetitive in both the academic and social aspect.

This college is HORRIBLE.BrightPhysical Therapy/Exercise Science
This college is HORRIBLE. I went there for a year and transferred out. The faculty sucks and a lot of the teachers and students are weird or arrogant, there is no social life on the campus, wellness center employees are rude, food service employees are ex cons, they charge you way too much money for an instate school, their food sucks (especially if youre a freshman and you have to buy a meal plan) and most importantly, they never cancel on snow days. Even when theres a state of emergency, they still wont cancel. They have a ton of commuters and put every commuters life at risk when they dont cancel school on days when the roads are filled with snow and ice. Yes, students can choose not to come, but most teachers take attendance and missing a class, even in cases of bad weather, will result in point deductions from your final grade. They just keep the university open for the money, they dont care about their students. This university just drains my soul, I felt like there was no life when I was there. It was always empty on the weekends and there was nothing to do unless if you wanted to take a train to go to a party, even though the train doesnt work on weekends. Im so glad I transferred from this school, they truly dont care about their students and they are sub par or below in every aspect. I would not recommend this university to anyone.

I have been crusading since graduating in 2012Quite BrightCriminal
I have been crusading since graduating in 2012 to become employed at Rowan University, with not even an interview. Rowan is the most impossible place to become employed. After graduation I had the hardest time finding any type of work- related or not related to my major. I'm still not even employed in anything related to my major; it often makes me wonder why I even went to college. The university I chose to spend thousands of dollars wouldn't even give an interview, why would any other establishment want to hire me? I would not choose Rowan again and I would not recommend it to anyone that wants to actually get an education versus just have a piece of paper in their hand that you can call a degree. Go to Rutgers, it may cost more but they actually have a good reputation, retention rate and tend to work hard to hire alumni over others.
