Academics Rating

Rutgers academics is very strong and that is great because students should graduate with the best edication when graduating from a university. Most professors are great but there are always a few that are around but they can be avioded simply by looking them up before registering for classes or by friending upper-classmen who are in the same fields and can give advice on which professors to avoid. My professors have been great so far and I plan to keep relationship with them by going for help so they can write me a great letter of reccomendation when needed. Most classrooms are small unless you are taking courses that are taken by many others majors, such as chemistry, psychology. These course are usually lecture size with about 200-300 students in an auditorium style classroom. Other courses such as english or mathematics can be from a small lecture room size conatingi about 100-students to a small classroom size with about eight students. work load is also not bad if you can manage your time effectively, and that may need some time if you are an incoming freshmen. However there are programs for those freshmens to get adjusted and do well in college in their first semster.

The classes at Rutgers are extremely involved and there are amazing professors. The class size varies greatly depending on if you are taking a lower level class that many people are required to take or a specialty class that's meant more for juniors or seniors
