This school should be lauded for providing a quality education and an ability to provide students with the ability to climb the social mobility index. You get out of this school what you put in, and in my case I put in a lot, but I also had an excellent experience. It is growing quickly, but this growth is making it competitive with other top schools in the region. I wasn't a fan of some of the non-tenured professors outside my major, and the Education program was a lot of work, but the History professors became almost like an extended family.

Rowan is growing too fast. University is putting big bucks into athletic facilities while ignoring academic funding. e.g. science labs are not anywhere up to date. Campus is land locked by town development. New facilities are a good distance from main campus.
