The campus is on two counties.Quite BrightComputer Science
The campus is on two counties. It takes 40 mins by shuttle to cross it. It was a pain to go to the profes office hours. Lots of choices but you can go through an entire 4 years never seeing people unless you make a big effort. If you do well here, you will do well anywhere. Not a very pretty campus. Ud, umcp,unc,uva, are so much prettier with the same amount of people.

Question
Rutgers was the worseQuite BrightPsychology
Rutgers was the worse 4 years of my life. Yes, the partying and social life is great, but neither the administration or faculty care about you. All you are here is a number and all they want from you is your money!

Question
I went to Rutgers for two years beforeQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I went to Rutgers for two years before transferring out. I had a terrible experience with faculty, many of which were not all that concerned with individual students. I had a strong social life because I made it that way, it is easy to get lost in the school if you don't get involved in something. There is a large population with people who are very concerned with the social side and not with actually doing work. It is a fun school, but be warned that it is not necessarily great because all of your New Jersey friends will be there.
