Rutgers University is a public research university, one of the first nine original colonial colleges, and a land grant institution, as well. The largest university in New Jersey, Rutgers maintains 29 schools and colleges between its three campuses that offer more than 150 undergraduate degrees, as well as graduate options and continuing education. The 2,685-acre New Brunswick campus, the first one established, is also home to more than 175 research centers and the Douglass Residential College for women, which focuses on creating female leaders through a holistic academic program.
Rutgers University-New Brunswick has been all that I expected in a University and more. It has provided me with many different opportunities such as research and volunteer opportunities to gain experience in my field of interest while attending school. On a scale of one to ten I would give it a nine, because if Rutgers has taught me anything it is that you can always improve!
