Montclair State University, a public research university of 20,000 students spread across Montclair, Little Falls and Clifton in New Jersey, sets itself apart by its environmental conscientiousness: it was one of the first universities in the nation, and still one of very few, to offer a PhD program in Environmental Management. In October 2015, Montclair also opened its state-of-the-art, 107,500-square-foot Center for Environmental Sciences building, providing students abundant lab space and a “collaborative, interdisciplinary” environment in which to learn and work, according to College of Science and Mathematics Dean Robert Prezant. In all, Montclair is comprised of seven distinct colleges and schools as well as a graduate college, and regularly serves as host to world-changing events, such as the College of Education and Human Services’ Biennial Adoption Initiative Conference. Campus life here enriches students’ collegiate experiences every day via free access to workout facilities, a 24-hour diner, a full slate of dance and theatrical performances at the Alexander Kasser Theatre, and many more benefits. Notably, New York Yankees catcher Yogi Berra and famed actor Bruce Willis have counted themselves among the many thousands of well-educated Montclair Red Hawks, and with all this school has to offer, one can see why.
