What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
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!
