    Buy a month-long bus pass if you commute; it'll be cheaper for you.

    If you want to party nj college, do not attend here. Facilities are mediocre. The yours will only show you their new buildings and nice dorms. Freshman dorms are terrible. Very small and there is no space. Wifi never works and in the spring they don't turn the AC on so heat is constantly filling the buildings through central air. The Resident directors all take long breaks while working and smoke Tim's of cigarettes right outside of the dorms And it is disgusting. This is definitely a commuter school and you should not look into housing unless you live really far. It's not worth the tuition. If you can, definitely try to aim for other state schools like Montclair which is only half an hour away from William Paterson of Rowan and Rutgers.

    A lot of reviews for this school really suck. It can suck if you really want it to. I'm not saying it's the best school out there, but success in college is an individual effort - you can't only depend on the school. If you remember this and work hard, you'll do well no matter where you go.
