May 24 2014Civil Engineering
Rowan is a business, not a place of higher learning. I feel like going here set me back academically. It is located in a ghetto. Kids from town are violent, and so are a lot of the students who go here. I've seen a lot of fights in the off campus apartments. On October 27, 2007 (during Homecoming festivities) 19-year old sophomore Donald Farrell was robbed and beaten to death by unknown assailants while walking behind the Triad dormitory. The police are out to bust you for whatever they can. Campus is littered with beer cans and vomit every weekend. I had a few good teachers when I went here, but for the most part I regret the decision. I transferred and never looked back.

Jan 24 2014Economics
Rowan has somewhat of a rep as a party/slacker school. However, it's a decent place, neither great nor bad. It is more intelligent than it seems, and there are plenty of opportunities to get academically/socially involved.

Pros: Most profs are high quality. Generally friendly students. Attractive campus. Many of the clubs have intelligent & nice people. Although many students party, it's easy to keep your distance from the party places.

Cons: Dull, unambitious, and often lonely place. (Keep in mind, all colleges can feel lonely to ppl.) Little school spirit; students mostly concerned with getting by. Two-thirds of students are commuters.

Freshman orientation was painfully boring, awkward, and depressing. Don't expect to make your friends there. If you can, make some excuse to get out of it early. It's basically useless.If you want an enjoyable and rigorous state school, try Rutgers, Montclair, or Ramapo. If you're looking for a place to start off your college career (with intention of transferring/great grad school), community college is not a bad idea. It will be cheaper and more motivational.
