Rutgers University- Newark is a great campus. It is one of the most diverse campuses in the United States, everyone is welcoming of people's differences. Campus life is great, since the campus is small you are always seeing people you know. The classes sizes for the most part are small with the exception of the entry level courses, which make it an ideal learning environment. The faculty is amazing and are always willing to work with you.

Rutgers University Newark is a very diverse University. The faculty is wonderful. No matter what your career choice, you will have a rewarding educational experience. Personal and professional growth through internships was my best experience. I'm currently pursuing my Masters degree in Public Administration & Public Policy. With an Nonprofit management concentration. I look forward to becoming a vehicle of service to my community.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty are well-experienced in the field of public administration. There are a wide variety of opportunities to network with well-respected organizations in my field. There is a high academic standard, and resources available to students if assistance is needed. The university invests in extensive online resources to view syllabi, course materials, class grades, communicate with professors and students, and manage administrative tasks (e.g. class registration, financial aid). The courses are offered at flexible times, and there is an opportunity to mix concentration courses if the particular course of study is important to your overall academic goals. The location of the campus is in a congested urban city. Outside of the campus it is not aesthetically pleasing. There are also safety concerns. However, the university provides extensive resources such as escort services.

Faculty is open and accessible. Often they work in their field of specialty while teaching. The program could stand to offer greater financial assistance.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

As an online student, many of the categories listed above I have no experience with. As far as education quality, program value and all other categories focusing directly on the program, I rate with 10 stars. The professors use high rated technology in all courses and take time to discuss all issues with students. The workload is high but with the effort. Rutgers puts forth many events, online and on campus, for students to plan for future careers.
