A perfectly fine school that's getting better.BrightBiology
A perfectly fine school that's getting better. I have no blatant issue with the University, and honestly in the 3.5 years I've been here my biggest complaint is how there aren't too many cool clubs, and the closest city is 20 mi away... and it's Atlantic City so that doesn't help either. Also if you're looking for diversity, most of the students are from Jersey, at least as long as I've been here, but that may change as it gets more prestigious.

That being said, it's also grown a lot and I kind of wish I was there a bit longer. When I first applied it was a state college with minimal facilities. Now it's a certified university, with a science building that looks really cool being built.Further more almost all the faculty is happy, helpful, and approachable. There is a general air of friendliness in both the student body, and the professors. If you're uncomfortable with college being a sink or swim experience, and want an environment that's consistently improving I'd recommend Stockton University. If you want a sprawling campus with plenty of student diversity and endless activities besides academics, I'd say look around keep this in your "maybe" pile.

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.
