    After staying here my first year I find that the campus in general is a bit boring since most people commute. On the other hand, if you are a shut-in and love to do work 24-7 then maybe this is the school for you. Just be careful when choosing this school because I found that I actually made the wrong choice and want to transfer out of here for more exciting college experiences next year after my sophomore year once I save enough money up.

    Montclair State University is pretty big, so my tip for students is to memorize all the buildings and locations so that they wouldn't get lost.

    Montclair State University has a large campus that as an incoming freshman may seem overwhelming. However, about 2 weeks into the semester MSU will become your home away from home. Although MSU has many clubs and activities for the student's enjoyment, academics are very important. The best advise will be to enjoy college life by learning, developing and enhancing time management skills. Thus, college life will be enjoyable both academically and recreational.

    Tips for students that are interested in Montclair State University should know that the financial aid office is not helpful what so ever. Also, classes never really get cancelled, even when weather is extremely bad, the campus waits till the last minute to close down, which is very dangerous in my eyes, especially for commuters. Parking is the worse about this school too. One may get a ticket if they park in the a wrong area, even if it's for a small amount of time. Lastly, the campus doesn't have many food options. The food seems to be good on the day of orientation, but once you start classes, the food is put together poorly and most of the time unappetizing. In the end, Montclair doesn't have many flaws from my point of view, except for the ones I pointed out.
