WHAT I LIKED

I've been going to Montclair State University for almost a year so far. It's a great school and a lot of my teachers within my majors are really nice people. The food that they serve could be a little better but the good thing about that is there are many options to choose from. My social life for me personally isn't all as pleasing as I want it to be. The dorms is pretty good and in most of the rooms, you get your own bathroom so that's a plus!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Work: No matter what major or what class you register for, the workload will always pile up if you're not consistent. Social: It's harder making friends in college because everyone stays to themselves and tries to stick with what and who they know. Try joining clubs or organizations to try and make friends. Walking: Montclair is really big, it's a lot of walking up and down many hills. Use shuttle buses (free transportation) if really needed.
