Malformed University Name, Uncategorized Surveys - Comments and Student Experiences|
With so much rudeness and unhelpfulness in positions of power within the University, I can only conclude that either those in charge were intentionally unhelpful to cover up their mistakes and in retaliation for me calling them out on them, or Rowan is too much of an institution to care about its students.
In addition, the other professors are hit or miss in terms of skill at their subject. While most seem very intelligent or at the very least knowledgeable, only half are good at conveying the information. Some are difficult to reach and very vague in instructions. Thankfully I believe that the level of incompetency I experienced in the one Professor is rare, but there's still no guarantee that you're going to get a decent professor unless you're lucky enough to have the professor listed when registering for courses and are able to check their ratings (again a 50/50 chance).
The food is decent. However there's not a huge amount of variety. The Market Place is your best bet, as it's basically a buffet. Often, though, you don't know what they're serving until you get in. They used to have a menu online but it's now a broken link most of the time. They have menus on the door but usually there're at least a few inaccuracies, so if you paid thinking they had one thing and it turns out they don't, you're screwed. It's still good food and you can find something, just not always what you wanted (and, really, why would you want to pay for food you didn't want?) Most of the other places only serve variants of different sandwiches and salads. Poblano's isn't bad; they serve tex-mex. But anything you can get in different places is served in the Market Place or somewhere else on campus. It would be nice to bring in something different.
The Student Center usually has something going on. A movie at least once a week and cool little fairs. The Rec Center's and the Library's huge. Lots of options for jocks. Other than that, though, you're kind of on your own for things to do and, unless you have a car to go to Deptford, you're stuck in Glassboro which is mostly just a bunch of food places. Not the least exciting campus but definitely no the best.
Rowan internet sucks. It's always up and down. The Rowan site needs editing. It's full of broken links and inaccurate contact information. Emails don't always send and sometimes you'll think it does but then get a failed delivery notification a week later. Blackboard and other systems are always having technical difficulties.Overall, while the information itself is good, you only have a 50% chance of getting a decent professor to convey the information. Those in charge are rude and unhelpful. Campus life is so-so, as is food. If you choose to attend, I hope you have a backup wifi system.
Iona College doesn't support there Alums. Once you graduate, you are on your own. Iona's Career Development Office is lacking services and support due to a lack of staff members, but please compare Iona's President's Salary, Basketball Coaches Salary to Career Counselors' and Professors' Salaries. Think twice before you go to Iona College. I sure didn't get my value and a Return on my BIG Investment.
Ask questions, ask for salary reports, ask for graduation rates, look at resumes, ask for detailed breakdowns of job hiring reports. Where did Iona College students get hired, and salary ranges. What companies recruit at Iona College? I heard Fortune 50 and 500 companies recruit, but what companies, but how many graduates get hired?
