          • 2005-2010, B.A., Visual Communications/ Graphic Design

            Stockton is the best school in the state of NJ! If you are looking for a college where you will have a fabulous experience and get the finest education, Stockton is the place. The curriculum is excellent. The teachers are beyond compare and exceptionally qualified. The campus is beautiful with top of the line architecture and technology. There is a very diverse faculty and student population here which in my eyes is very important; I would not trade my college experience here for any other. Go Stockton!!

          • 2004-2008, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Computer Science & Information Systems

            Stockton provides the best education in my opinion of all the schools in New Jersey due to the faculty's focus on student success. This should be the norm, but is rare for the majority of a college to provide.

          • 1997-2000, Bachelor of Science (BS), Cell Biology and Anatomy

            Excellent faculty-student ratio. The faculty do CARE about their students. Most go so far as to giving out their home phone #'s in the syllabus if you still had a question. The administrative staff was extremely helpful with every little detail of admission all the way to graduation. Look no further for impeccable education quality - RSC has what you need packed nicely in a compact campus nestled in the prime of southern NJ.
