I have not live in Montclair State but I think that I will have an incredible year. I went to visit the dorms and they were awesome. You are allow to bring a fridge,a microwave whatever you want well not an oven, I'm not to sure but everything seems fine. I'm looking forward living in one of these dorms but I don't think I will because I can't afford it. The classroom size are like 14 to 20 students and it's okay. Personal attention, you got it!
