4 College Freshman

Academics: Teachers and staff are willing to give extra help!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Newark aka high crime rate. Cops are around though.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: No comment, don't spend extra time after hours at school. There are some students on rare occasion that I could see were tending a hangover and alcohol still lingering in their breath. Regarding drug policy, I haven't seen any notice or the policy brought to attention although I'm certain they exist.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: i'm not into drug or alcohol and it is not pressured to do so.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: within the college it is very peasant out side the campus is scary

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: It is located in a shady part of Newark and walking off campus is sketchy

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I am in a long-term relationship with my beautiful girlfriend. I'd rather not elaborate on the girls on this campus, only because I'm not searching for one. However, from what I've seen, the amount of girls here correlates to the amount of guys willing to pursue them.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug safety is dependent on two factors: the responsibility of the students and the awareness of the public safety officers

College Freshman

Academics: NJIT is not easy, you must be dedicated and hardworking to excel. Your personal efforts will determine your success.

First and foremost, NJIT is a school a student will want to choose if he or she is looking to major in mathematics or sciences. NJIT's math department rivals MIT's mathematics programs, and the school is always doing major research projects and developing new products or more efficient alternatives to what already exists. However, NJIT is, without a doubt, not the school to choose if a student has any inclination toward the humanities or liberal arts, unless he or she is interested in the technological aspect of social science. Outside of the intense curricula, major projects, and high hiring rates for NJIT graduates, there is very little that makes NJIT unique. The athletics department is not impressive; the social life is, for the most part, dead; and the staff does not work nearly as close to its students as professors claim to during the introductory sessions. Other than the school's stellar math and science reputation, the other benefits of NJIT are that the school has a varied food selection for students and that some of the buildings are new and impressive. There are also clubs to explore student interests and activities, though most of these are of a technological orientation, as well.

Overall, NJIT has a great curricula in the sciences, but it is not the school for those with interests extending beyond the realm of technology. While a student can make a tight-knit group of friends in this small student body, students are often so busy studying that social lives are the last thing a student can worry about.
