A great campus with a huge variety of buildings and sites. Even if you are just walking around the campus, there are plenty of sights to see.

Great faculty, friendly staff and good comradary. Well respected nationally and internationally in many fields of study. Campus is rather understated but good facitlities. Great university and well worth consideration.

“MUN Rocks”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Highly underrated University with amazing faculty. Profs and student services are top notch. Campus is a bit dated though. Aside from the Works, not much has changed here in 20 years. That said, still a truly wonderful place to study. EVERYONE is super FRIENDLY and the library is fantastic.

“Great School”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

If you have a degree in mind go to it. If not expect to spend two or three years just floating around, unsure. Still, the professors are all great, the classes are small, and its probably the best tuition in the county. One word of advice though, for first year math avoid John Suvak like your life depends on it. It doesn't matter to him if your grandmother died, you were in an accident, you need extra help, anything. Expect to be ridiculed every class. I've been there three years and out of the dozens of professors I've had, he's been the only bad one.
