I've had bad professors but I've also had amazing ones. It depends on the professor, but the professors are generally very helpful when it comes to assisting students. The class size is ideal - class sizes are small but not too small. It's similar to the class sizes in high school. I do not feel lost in a sea of 200 students in a lecture hall -- I feel comfortable in class and I absorb the material at an easier level.

My overall experience at Rowan has been pretty great so far. I definitely cannot complain. As well as being in the EOF (Educational Opportunity Fund) program, I have had many counselors who have provided an immense amount of help. This school is unique because all of the students share a sense of community. I have had many fun experiences as well which couldn't be duplicated at any other school.

The classes are hard but the social aspects are awesome! But some clubs could be a bit better in terms of quality
