New Jersey's State Colleges Gain Greater In-State Appeal

January 1, 2008

As the economic downturn continues, the impact is driving more applicants and their families to consider in-state public colleges, and New Jersey is no exception.  Well known names like Rutgers and The College of New Jersey in Ewing are getting more attention from New Jersey’s high school seniors, as are those lesser known like Richard Stockton College in Pomona (near Atlantic City) and Ramapo College in Mahwah.  With in-state tuition running on average about 1/3 of that at private colleges, the Garden State’s colleges are experiencing a surge of in-state applicants.  Aside from tuition, the advantages at many of these schools include a low student-faculty ratio, not to mention the greater possibility of a home-cooked meal on the weekend.
