WHAT I LIKED

There are a lot of opportunities. I got myself involved in media and the arts through my minor and also dabbled in music by being part of the radio station (of which we have two!). There are also incredible opportunities for research, and the campus is extremely diverse so you never feel like an outcast. If you focus and try hard in your classes your first year, there is nothing to stop you from pursuing all other opportunities Rutgers has for your other years. Of course, if you have a flawless record from high school go for it your first year, but I mean to say that Rutgers truly does have a lot for anyone who wants to get involved in many things. Just go and look for it!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I would definitely recommend not being excited about frat parties. There are certainly some professors you should avoid, so be on the lookout (rate my professor is your best friend). Avoid complainers (seriously), Rutgers has way too much for anyone to be bad-mouthing it unless they have taken advantage of every opportunity available already, but there are still many complainers who bash it for no good reason. Don't take too much advice from anyone, do whatever you want and believe in yourself.

WHAT I LIKED

Though it can get overwhelming at times since it's a really big school, it has a lot of opportunities and internships available for students. The psychology department is always sending out emails to undergrads with new research opportunities or job openings. You get what you put into your academics and internships- you have to be willing to reach out but it'll always be worth it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The bus system can be confusing for incoming students and the buses are almost always overcrowded.

WHAT I LIKED

Rutgers is a school that many people use as a "safe school", but this means that there are many very bright students that just missed getting into the school of their dreams. I know that I just missed getting into my dream school, but Rutgers knew how to make it better. You cannot beat New Jersey food, and New York City is just a short train ride away. Many people have their dream school as their number one choice but don't give up on Rutgers just yet.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Our football team is not good, root for another team while you're here. Lectures are also often hard to understand at times, but office hours do help.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

Rutgers is a good school but like every school it has its cons and because of Covid it has had its hard ships

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I personally don’t like the dinning halls or food options
