Montclair State University is a public institution and designated R3 Research University. Situated in Montclair, New Jersey, the school was the first in the US to create a 4-year program in pedagogy and the first in the state to broadcast educational television shows and offer master’s degrees. MSU is listed among The Princeton Review “Green Colleges” list for their parks, public gardens, and reserves. Popular undergraduate programs include psychology, business, and family and child studies.
I think like any experience, a college education is what you make of it. Montclair State has a surplus of resources to take advantage of and can truly be the college you are proud of. I have had the opportunities to be an active member and leader in on-campus organizations, be a part and establish research project, take part in volunteer work (both off campus and on), study abroad, and redefine myself.

Although Montclair State seems rather large, the faculty and students really make the campus feel like a community. There are many different activities and opportunities available to everyone on-campus and off-campus. Whether it be Greek life, sports, student government or the arts, there's something for everyone at Montclair State!
