Meet Jessica Samson, a junior radio/TV/film major from Beachwood, New Jersey (Ocean County) who is a first generation college student.
Why did you choose to come to Rowan?
“I chose Rowan for a few different reasons. I already knew that Rowan had a good film program, and during my time at Ocean County College, I was told that the one the schools people of my major typically transfer to is Rowan. Rowan is a lot more affordable than other universities from what I’ve seen. The last and deciding factor is that one of my best friends from high school has been attending this university, and coming here would mean that I would get to live with her!”
What is one piece of advice you have for future transfer students?
“My advice for other transfer students is to pay attention to your credits. One of the bigger challenges I have had was my AP credits from high school not transferring, and now I have to take an English one class as a junior.”
