Montclair State University

From Academic Kids

Montclair State University is a public university located in Montclair, New Jersey.

It was established in 1908 as "Montclair Normal School" in response to a growing need for teachers. It was renamed "Montclair State Teachers College" in 1927, when it developed a program of educating secondary school teachers through a Bachelor of Arts degree. It became "Montclair State College" in 1958 with the introduction of an expanded curriculum to answer the increases in enrollment during the time. The university was designated as "Montclair State University" in 1994.

As of Fall 2004, there are about 9,600 full-time and 2,200 part-time undegraduate and 3,800 graduate students. About 80% of the students are commuters.

MSU is also home to one of the most diverse student populations in the whole of the United States of America with more than 100 nations being represented in its student body. The international student population is represented by the International Student Organization (http://www.montclairiso.org).
