  • Dead on weekends, and two of the buildings are noticeably aging, but housing is pretty good here. Really convenient, considering this is predominantly a commuter school.…

  • University Square is probably the best dorm around. Dorm life is definitely not as much of a social setting as it could be. …

    There is a Starbucks on campus. There is also a general dining area which offers Jamba Juice, pizza, and other fast food options. There is also a shop on campus which offers packaged snacks and food. They could do better with providing more healthy options on campus. However, near campus there is also a Pizza Hut and a Subway. Right across the street there is NJIT which also has a lot of other options if you ever get bored of Rutgers. (NJIT and Rutgers students always seem to be on each others campuses)

    There are a rich variety of choices in terms of food and dining. I suggest packing your own lunch if your commuting because the same food over the course of 4 years can get pretty boring. If you decide to live on campus then by all means, get the meal plan.

    Dinning halls are okay. There's always something to eat. I wouldn't say that there are many choices though. The kitchen staff is so nice. The downside of the dinning halls in RU Newark is its timing. Breakfast: 7:30-10:30 Lunch: 11:30-1:30 dinner: 5-8 late night: 9-12 (Not available every day in the week and start 2 weeks after school)

    It is great, there are many restaurants that have variety of foods for students. The prices are not outrageous and students get to explore new cultures through the food. There should be a little more variety, though. There are restaurants open late at night, which is helpful when you have late nights of studying.

    The food is of reasonable quality. It is definitely better to get a meal plan, due to the expensive food options around campus.

    It's kind of a hit or miss in this category. There are trucks serving food and some little diners around the campus itself, as well as food in the campus center but the thing to really watch out for is the resident dining hall, Stonsby. They have their days while others it seems as if they aren't really trying.

    there are a decent amount of fraternities and sororities at RU Newark. Not too many, but enough to give you a variety to choose from depending on the causes that interest you.

    I'm not too sure about Greek Life, but I have seen some of their shows and there's so many fraternities and sororities that if you want to pledge you have many options.

    There are a lot of fraternities at Rutgers Newark, we have a whole street of frat houses also known as frat row on campus. many students join the fraternities and all of them also have many connections outside the campus once we graduate.

    On frat row there are so many parties every Thursday. They have Greek events for those interested in pledging to a sorority or fraternity. The Greek life here is really big and important to the students here, I may even consider pledging next year.
