“I have been listening to a mixed playlist consisting of classic rock, modern psychedelic, indie, 80s-90s pop/alternative/indie, modern hip hop, and old rap my favorite artist, or should I say duo King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

My favorite song is in a complete different category — a rap song by Travis Scott ; NO BYSTANDERS. Also my favorite album at the moment is a classic album, ‘Bleach’ by Nirvana.” John Alviar, senior biology major from Stratford, NJ (Camden County).

“My style is mainly bringing back brands that didn’t used to be big at the time, such as Champion. Back then Champion used to be laughed at, but now it’s back and I’ve had this vintage Champion hoodie for quite some time. A lot of brands are making their way back to market in a big way and I’m taking full advantage,” Hashim Rahman, a junior law and justice major from West Windsor, NJ (Mercer County).

Meet Rowan Choice student, Jakira McCoy, a sophomore business major with a minor in African studies from Camden, NJ (Camden County). Jakira lives on campus in Holly Pointe Commons as a Rowan College at Gloucester County community college student enrolled in the Rowan Choice program, which allows her to have the full college experience on Rowan’s campus, before she transfers to Rowan University. 

Jakira sits on her couch at Holly Pointe Commons“I chose Rowan because it was closer to home and I did not want to be too far from my family. I also chose to come here because of Rowan Choice​. It was a cheaper option and saved me a lot of money. Since you are technically enrolled in a community college, you still pay community college tuition. It helps a lot and makes the transition to Rowan University easier.”
