What Students Are Saying

3.23 Average Rating
Meet with your professors in beginning, middle, and towards the end of the semester to avoid any confusion or grade issues.
Rose from Jersey City, NJ
Do what you have to do when you have to do it. Do not rush anything. Also, enjoy it all.

Great students100%
Paule Marilyne from East Orange, NJ
Get involved, this university provides so many opportunities, it really is a waste when you don't participate. Be Proactive.
Randy from North Bergen, NJ
Even if you're not sure about what you want to study, just contact an advisers via e-mail and they usually get back to you quickly. You will get the help you need if you just ask for it. They make your life as easy as possible just go for it. Plus it's one of the cheapest schools to attend with really creative professors.

Make sure that you guys are well organized, on time to class, and prepared for the next chapter.
Priya from Jersey City, NJ
Do not take this school lightly, there is a reason they call it the Harvard on the boulevard. The classes are tough and many of the professors will treat you as though you were an ivy league student because they believe you deserve the same kind of education people are getting at Brown.
Diego from Union City, NJ
Do not allow your college social life to distract you from maintaining your academics.
Imani from Jesery City, NJ
