had a memorable 4 years here at Rutgers NB.
Packed with everything from fun and corny community building,
to endless nights of procrastination, all-nighters, obsessive study groups, wild
football games, studying at the library for 6 hours at
a time, the monotonous yet addictive cafeteria food, parties and
bars, the anxiety-filled attacks of college life, late-night visits to
the grease trucks, getting yelled at by the RA, as
well as being the yelling RA, and meeting some of
the most incredible as well as some of the most
intellectually challenged individuals.
Great faculty and staff, always approachable. Challenging
classes, education, and overall requirements. RU has its cons of
course, but nothing that its positive factors couldn't win over.
The bureaucracy can get to you sometimes, and they're quite
disorganized. So just be on top of your stuff at
Location: New Brunswick = more of the bustling
city type, with a short train ride to NYC, parking
is a headache. Piscataway = quieter suburbia, safer, and car
Theatres, nightlife, decent bars and restaurants, surrounding cities in
the county have hidden gems worth discovering. Being from the
city (New York City) I loved it. It was a
refreshing change of scenery, there's actual scenery here, grass and
trees! It's a fun college in the sense that there
is always something going on. There are snobs, elitists, dumb
butts, perfectionists, jocks, etc. at EVERY college. Pick your crowd/friends
and love em. I was impressed to have found cliques
of extremely bright intellectuals as well as politically active people
Every time I go back and visit New
Brunswick, I get overwhelmed by that cozy sensation that warms
my heart. Ah yes... home. Makes wearing this $60 Rutgers
hoodie right now priceless.
