However, the overall university experience is mostly negative. Your academic advisor is non-existent and you wouldn't even know they are there if certain classes didn't require waivers. The school doesn't make accomodations for students who have full-time jobs by making sure required courses are available for night class even though they claim to during the admissions process. there is one pretty good place to eat on campus attached to the library and the recreation center is pretty clean but overall I wouldn't recommend the place to anyone.

At night when you walk on the seterts, it will smell like trash because that's when people toss out their garbage . And shops there close too early! I think they close around 7PM!! And you're going to have to know your way around NY and if you look like a tourist or a noobie, taxi cab drivers will take advantage of you and rip you off by taking you to your destination THE LONG ROUTE. And be sure to visit Times Square at night because it is AMAZING! And be careful when walking into a huge crowd because you might get pickpocketed. And traffic is CRAZY. When the cross light goes on you better cross the street FAST cause the cabbies will honk the SH%T out of you or might even run you over!! Was this answer helpful?

After having lived in a concrete jungle most of my life, it was refreshing to see trees, clean streets, and picturesque buildings. Tuition was reasonable and the student to teacher ratio was low. As a freshman, I was timid but by the time I graduated, I had more confidence and made many friends. As for the academics, I was fortunate to have attentive professors and awesome classmates that were not only sincere but fun too! It is unfortunate to read many negative comments. MSU was my home for many years and has a special place in my heart.

Thu, 13 Feb 2014 11:23:45 GMT StudentsReview 886-101470 Copyright 2014 StudentsReview, Ecliptical Technologies, Inc. 886-101470 886 73 Nutrition Female Undergraduate Class 2018 3rd Year Negative Montclair is different than a SUNY school or other state schools where the social life revolves around the campus. You do not walk off campus and over to a friends house that lives off campus. What I mean is the town of Montclair does not revolve around Msu students and cater to them like in other college towns. Successful 40 something's with 3 kids are living in those houses near the school not ur friends who are in a band or whatever. I used to frequent house parties or walk to downtown bars at my old SUNY school and have not done that once at Msu. Unless u can afford to go out to NYC every weekend and spend 50 bucks for club cover and 12 bucks a Drink there's not really that great of a Night life. As far as academics go my program is ok. Some of the younger professors especially the adjuncts are really nice but some of the older ones are real jerks. Advisors in my program are horrible(nutrition) I'm Not sure if this is the same for others. The parking situation is also very bad. They set it up so that they can sell more parking passes and give out more parking tickets so that can make the most money possible not so that parking is as convenient as possible. They sell more parking passes than they have parking spaces on purpose so they can accomplish this extra income. This school is ok if ur a New Jersey resident and you live at home with mom and dad and want a decent degree from a nearby school you can commute to but if ur looking for the "college experience" it's not for you. It's also expensive if ur out
Of state. If ur from NY ur better off with even the lesser SUNYs
