    I love it at Rutgers! The people I've met here so far are great. I love my roommate, where I live, the food, I actually don't mind the buses (but that's rare). I never wanted to go to Rutgers either. I always wanted to go out of state to somewhere new. But, after the first few days of first semester I definitely knew I was in the right place.

    I love being at Rutgers because I'm always close to my friends, you can go out whenever you want, it's fun to go to the dining hall with your friends, and the campus centers have plenty of games to play!

    There’s always something happening at Rutgers to keep you preoccupied; there are concerts, theatre productions,’ ice-cream nights’, rock climbing, club-held water balloon fights and much more activities you’ve possibly never heard of. If you’re a person of the night, you’re in luck because the fraternities host parties almost every day of the week. The food at Rutgers is a major part of the reason why I gave 5 stars. In the several dining halls, you’re offered a broad range of food. From sushi to custom omelets to all the baked delicacies you can think of- Rutgers has it all. However, if you ever feel the need for a break from the dining hall food, a variety of restaurants are in walking distance of the campuses. For those like me, who appreciate nature, the suburban campuses flourish during spring and give you a sight to behold during fall. If you’re lucky, you might be able to see a fox or two as well as other wildlife. The farm on Cook campus allows you to get on an even more personal level with animals.

    I enjoy living here because of the many activities that are available to me. Rutgers is a very interesting place to live in! During midterms and finals, there are many places to study, and that is very important for a university.

    I'm part of the DRC and I love it. If you are a girl be part of Douglas. I don't know what I would've done without a PAL (Peer Academic Leader) during registration. Trust me do it! And try no to party too hard your freshman year and if you do keep it on your campus. You don't want to find yourself alone at night with no idea what to do and drunk.
