    In-state tuition is beautiful! Then there is Federal Pell Grant and HESAA which decrease tuition even more (for me at least since I don't dorm). I'm glad to attend a great university that allows me to not worry too much about student debt after I graduate. If you dorm and got no money, I recommend looking into the living options after freshman year, or applying to scholarships! Out-of-State students, I feel for you.

    Dining and dorming isn't worth the money, but it's essential to your freshman year for the most part. The education you get is amazing considering the price. However the facilities aren't what you would expect, they could use an update and repair.

    I had a rough time transitioning when I entered as a freshman but after my first semester, I fell in love with my university. There is always something fun to do on campus and I love being a scarlet knight! I wouldn't trade my school for any other. I cannot believe that my freshman year went by so quickly. Sure, as any college student I had my rough times. but Rutgers establishes an atmosphere for student so that they can feel safe and secure.

    For an instate student, RU was my cheapest option which is why I picked RU. It is a good investment because I go to a university that is well-known for a super affordable price. Plus the close location to NYC and the huge alumni network is extremely helpful when it comes to finding a job.
