    Campus Police ruined my friends and myself mentally. We have no peace of mind. I transferred out after my first year.

    It's the cheapest state school in Jersey. I'm not sure about how it would compare to other schools nearby like Montclair or FDU Teaneck (I've never taken classes in those schools) but if you work hard you'll find the opportunities you need.

    Not anything what I expected this school to be or what it was made out to be. I transferred here from another school and am so unimpressed with the music program. I'm finishing this semester, and never coming back.

    William Paterson is a great school. The teachers are very helpful and want to see you succeed if you are putting in the effort. Overall, the school offers a lot of opportunities being that it is only 10, 15 minutes from New York.

    This an amazing University, I'm planning to attend here because I like their communications programs, specially the one named media productions. The university offer a great option in that field, which is why I decided to attended there.

    The landscape and where the college is located is clean, safe, and non threating. There's buses that can bring you anywhere from new York to the mall. Great clubs and activities.

    William Paterson has an amazing Communication Disorders Department (my major). All the professors are so helpful and actually care about you. The small class sizes are very beneficial to learning.
