  • Jan-04-2012 I am a current student here

    It's the only reason I am staying here. I get no financial aid and I transferred from a college where I got financial aid, but I wasn't enjoying myself. When I transferred here I loved it, the atmosphere is so different from my previous college. There's always events going on here, the people are friendly, I just love it here.

    Even though I enjoy being a college student my financial circumstances and lack of help my staff such as academic advisors and professors has truly hindered my ability to enjoy the college.

    I am thrilled to be living on campus and a vital part to the school community. I was disappointed in the train not running on the weekend but for that blemish, Montclair makes up for it in other transportation services as well as a plethora of campus events and activities throughout the week and weekend. There is not a lack of clubs or organizations at Montclair. Anything under the sun including greek organizations exist and are a prominent part of the school community. Also, the student population is diverse so I get to interact with many different people whom I would not normally have had a chance to associate with. Overall, MSU is great for getting involved in college.
