2 Student Testimonials



Freshman · Nursing

I like the vast opportunities that Rutgers offers. There are hundreds of clubs and organizations you can join, so you will always find people you have something in common with. Classes can be challenging but professors are always helpful.



Freshman · Political Science and Government

Rutgers has a lot to offer if you know where to look. Greek life and party life are abundant here but so are a lot of the other clubs and activities. The classes varied in difficulty but the professors main priority are the students and will do what they can to help them prosper. As for outside of the classroom, there’s something for everyone wether your into partying, or community service, or something else.
