What Students Are Saying

3.55 Average Rating
Get to know your professors as if you are networking with them. Make sure they know your name and know your face.
Brianna from Piscataway, NJ
College is a big step to take after high school, but the community at Kean makes that transition easier. Being undecided is also normal, Kean offers many different classes that people in all different majors have to take, so you get a sense of all different subjects.
Rodriguez
The tips that I have for future students is:focus on your career, interact with people , get involved (join extracurricular activities, community service, clubs or sororities), build a relationship with your professors and advisors, make wise decisions, and lastly have fun with a limit.
Melissa from Linden, NJ
Whether you are dorming or commuting, it is very important that you focus on your schoolwork before partying because you will regret not doing so later on. In my Transition to Kean class there is this student who is older than me and only cares about partying. He has a very low GPA and has not decided on a major yet. Please do not be like this, choose your major early so you can take only the classes you need and get out as quickly as you can!
Nancy from Elizabeth, NJ
It's not a big campus, but it's big enough where you will be able to have a chance to start over your life. The teachers do try and get to know you personally and safety is number one here at Kean. If you're a commuter, don't even sweat, you'll be making friends faster than you know it. Also the Starbucks here on campus is pretty amazing.
Alex from Morris County, NJ
It is a great idea to explore various majors and advisors for potential education plans. There are many classes that fit into other degrees whether it be by elective or not and taking courses that fit, as well as those of interest will help you get the best out of your experience. There are also many groups or clubs that you can be a part of which is good for on-campus scholarships and your resume.
Kathryn from Parlin, NJ
You will meet a lot of great people here like i said it is very diverse so you will meet people from all over. Everyone from the staff to the students are very helpful so dont worry about getting lost. Everything is pretty much easy to locate.
Darlene from Atlantic City , NJ
Don't worry about the cost considering there's a lot of financial aid and Kean helps you out quite a bit.
Tina from Colonia, NJ
Be open-minded and friendly
Tumey
As far as getting things situated like contacting certain offices for housing information, tuition payments, questions for certain people, etc be persistent or maybe even come in and do it in person because the offices don't always answer their phones which can be annoying but be proactive and it will get done. Put yourself out there and join a club, activity, go to a game or two and you'll find friends. Don't indulge in food because there isn't anything better to do or you're bored or because it is convenient, eat right and stay active so you don't get the freshman fifteen, or even more likely, the freshman thirty.
