Rowan University

In the past 15 years, Rowan University has become one of the most recognized and highly regarded colleges and universities in the mid-Atlantic region. Rowans dramatic transformation is due in part to the universitys large investment in upgrading its facilities, construction of new buildings and residence halls, and broadening its academic offerings. The 11,000+ student university, located 20 minutes from Philadelphia, offers an outstanding education at an exceptional value. US News & World Report ranks Rowan in the Top Tier of Northern Regional Universities. Kiplingers has named Rowan one of the "100 Best Buys in Public Colleges and Universities" and the Princeton Review included it in "The Best Northeastern Colleges". In 2010 and 2011, the University made great progress on two institution-changing initiatives - the Rowan Boulevard revitalization project and the creation of its medical school. The Rowan Boulevard Project is a massive construction project that connects the main campus to Glassboros historic downtown through a new mixed-use roadway. Once complete, the new roadway will feature dozens of stores and restaurants at the street level, topped with housing options for students and community residents.
