What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
I recommend this college for any students ify about the idea of attending. All Criminal Justice majors, such as myself, will be happy to know that there are many classes tailored to your needs. Most of the CRIM professors, that I have had, have background experience with some part of the law. Be it police officers or criminology theorists. The school has done a new Health & Science center. It is state-of-the-art. The classroom are all clean and electronically advanced. My only problem is that is reminds me of the thing I fear most, the hospital. The tuition is very low. Trust me when I say that when you graduate, you will be better off than many other students from different universities.
George from Rochelle Park, NJ
Stockton has an outstanding academic advising staff who are ready to assist students in selecting and enrolling in the most advantageous classes for any major. Stockton's smaller class sizes allow professors to give students more individualized instruction outside of class. Stockton also has many partnerships with local organizations such as the Federal Aviation Administration and Atlanticare Health System that give students the chance to pursue internships, work-study programs, and other career-building employment opportunities. Take advantage of these resources as soon as possible, and often throughout your college career to better equip yourself to face the job market.
Trevor from Egg Harbor Township, NJ
Even though Stockton is close to Atlantic City, the Jersey shore, the Hamilton and Egg Harbor Township shopping area with lots of restaurants and stores, mostly all of your time will be hanging out with friends on campus. Take advantage of the nature trails and Lake Fred with your downtime, the campus is truly beautiful all year long. I pursued a political science degree at Stockton and I can say that I learned a ton from some very dedicated professors. My coursework was sometimes intense and sometimes light, but overall I was happy and fulfilled with my education when I graduated. With all of the interesting course options, its easy to get distracted from your major. Many of my friends became "super-seniors" and stayed at Stockton for 5 or more years because they just didn't want to leave! Finish your degree in 4 years or less and save yourself the student loans.
Cory from Sicklerville, NJ
Stockton has many dates available for incoming students or transfers to explore and learn about what the campus has to offer. These events are run by current students who know Stockton inside out. Take advantage of these opportunities so you don't enter college in the dark.
Lindsay from Somers Point, NJ
I would encourage prospective students to try one semester undeclared first. Even if you already know for sure what you want to major in, just wait to declare it because then I think you are more open-minded. Also, I would encourage prospective students to live on campus. Living on campus really allows you to be more involved and feel like you're a part of the college community.
Maria from Beachwood, NJ
Find at least one or two clubs to join and meet people. Some classes can be pretty quiet, so you not get the opportunity to meet people during the course. I would also suggest, if money permits, trying one of their study abroad programs. They're an experience of a lifetime, and they often offer scholarships for students who join!
Angelica from Manchester, NJ
I would definitely recommend on going to the SOAR program the weekend before school starts. I met three of my best friends during that program. I would also recommend going to all the activities they have during the first week of school. It really helps you feel more comfortable in your new surroundings. Take classes you think you will enjoy, but also take classes you've never really heard of. College is all about experiencing new things, and Stockton definitely gives every student that opportunity.
Colleen from Ringwood, NJ
Some of the tips I would give to prospective students would be to come as a freshman if possible. I went to a community college first, and transferring is a big transition. Stockton is very welcoming for transfers, but it can be difficult at times. The offices at Stockton are always open for their students and willing to do anything they can to make Stockton, a better place. I would visit Stockton on a weekday Monday-Thursday. Friday-Sunday is a common day for students to leave campus. Stockton is not a commuter school, but many people go home on the weekends. But, college is what you make out of it. There is always something to do on campus on the weekends, just find a good group of people who want to get involved and want to stay at school.
