    You get a good bank for your buck here at Montclair State. Theres always activities going on that you can take advantage. You get treated like a student here, instead of a number.

    Academically and housing-wise (if you live in dinallo/heights) yes, you get your moneys worth. The food tho here is awful and the cooks seem like half of them had criminal records. I asked for something about a week ago and they were extremely rude to me.

    Since I commute from home, I think I get the best deal. I only have to cover tuition and books, and if you win a scholarship or a few, you're paying even less. I cannot stop promoting the commuting option enough because of how much it can save you. The facilities are state-of-the-art or getting there. We have two new buildings under construction right now, and the school does its best to provide the best for its students. And if you like going to plays, students get into the campus theater for free for school productions. There is a lot offered for free at the Rec Center as well, along with free seminars and other meetings at other locations on campus.

    My parents are paying NOTHING and this school is amazingly affordable. I am on scholarship and I do live in state, but overall, this is a good education for an amazing price.
