    I absolutely love being a scarlet knight at Rutgers and being able to pursue my dreams as a wildlife veterinarian. From the moment I got on campus I knew I could call the university a home with a warming and humble student environment. Rutgers as a big ten university offers a challenging academic atmosphere for it's students, pushing them to excel in everything they do. There is always something fun and engaging to do on campus with countless sports, clubs, and student life events. This was my dream school and I love being a current student here.

    Out of 10, I'd give Rutgers a 7. The academic staff and classes are extremely up to par and I am always learning new and useful material.
