“I just finished up my freshman year hereNot so brightNursing
I just finished up my freshman year here and I'm so glad I chose Stockton! I was between here and Rutgers and I'm honestly so satisfied with my college experience to this point. My classes aren't easy, but they aren't unmanageable either. The nursing faculty is supportive and informative. Living on campus is convenient, and my dorm (housing 2) was pretty decent. The upperclassman apartments are also nice. The clubs and activities vary, and you have to put yourself out there. I would say that Stockton is a good school for those with initiative. All of the opportunities are there for you (research, clubs, sports, leadership etc.) but no one is going to hand that to you or force you into it.
“Coming to Stockton is one of the bestBrightNursing
Coming to Stockton is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am a nursing student there, and while the program is difficult- and hard to get into (36 spots only)- it is worth it. They have a high NCLEX pass rate, and you start your nursing classes as a freshman. My adviser is great and very helpful, and even if she wasn't I would be able to change her without an issue. The housing is decent. Upperclassmen live in apartments, which can be hit or miss. The food is also decent, I just wish that more things were open on the weekends. They have improved on campus activities both during the week and on the weekend. A good portion of people go home on the weekend, but if you put yourself out there friend wise and get involved you'll be okay. It's not the school for everyone, but it has strong education and STEM/healthcare programs. You'll know if its the school for you.
Health Science Major:I am very pleased with my decision to attend Stockton for my undergraduate degree. I will be applying to attend Graduate school here. I really liked the small student: professor ratio. Professors learn your names and you can build a relationship with them. I love how much Stockton's campus involves nature and Lake Fred on campus is beautiful! The student population is laid back, but you do have to go out of your way to become involved. Once you are involved, you will also be busy with different activities and Stockton has a lot to offer. Do not fall into going home every weekend like some students tend to do.
