I graduated in 1990-I transferred there and attendedQuite BrightArt & Design Department
I graduated in 1990-I transferred there and attended for 2 years. I had applied to New Brunswick, but ended up in Camden. I had a good experience at Rutgers-Camden. I had two great internships in Philly one at a museum and one at a gallery, and went on a study trip to Italy. There was a lot of individual attention and support from faculty.

At that time, there wasn't enough housing so I lived in Philly and commuted each day to school which was hard-but I had a cheap shared house. The surrounding area was pretty rough then-Its improved but just be aware of that. One night I came back from Philly and missed the local stop and had to walk through pimps and hookers, crack dealers etc. to get back to my house. Nothing bad happened-but it wasn't pleasant.Hopefully things have improved-since the '80s with the Aquarium and other improvements.

The majority of students were commuter students from S. Jersey which in general were a little different culturally than N.Jersey where I'm from.

I enjoyed the courses-they were pretty demanding and interesting. Summer classes were a little depressing though-being in a poor city with not much to do, and the place is emptier. Things may have changed since I was there-but if you want to get a solid education I would recommend it; you have smaller classes and more of an individualized experience.You will also get on the mailing list for life and be able to participate in the excellent Alumni benefits.

Rutgers-Camden is a good university with highly qualified faculty. The professors are very knowlegable but can be a bit uptight. Students here are very friendly and intelligent. The campus is generally very nice.

The school suffers however from the surrounding area. A social life is almost nonexistent. Most students are commuters. The curriculum does not allow for much freedom and summer classes are required for most students to graduate on time.RUC is great for the serious student who is looking for a solid undergraduate education at a low price. Their honors college provides many other academic opportunities for superior students.
