Transferred to Rowan from Kean, and glad I did! Campus is beautiful and professors are top-notch! Couldn't be happier with my move to Rowan!
Miosotis from Stroudsburg, PA
the school is great. everyone wants to help you with all different types of academic work. also, there is something for everyone.
Nicole from Wayne, NJ
Although I'm not yet a student here, I can still say some nice things for the school. I've watched the engineering program grow so much just in the last couple years. I think the only downside is some of the dorms and food.
I truly love attending Rowan University. The classes are challenging enough; however, the expectations are not too overbearing. The community is very exciting and unifying.
