1 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am part of the athletic program and it is terrible. Our facilities are old and we do not get enough money from the school.

1 College Sophomore

Facilities: Too many guys, not enough interaction.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Food truck and the dining hall at the place I tend to go to the most for the food is always satisfying to the point the merchants know me and already know what I would order in a daily basis.

2 College Junior

Guys & Girls: In the Architecture building, the ratio from guys to girls is a bit wild that it can be better, yet the work and other activity make it bad for anyone to join.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Not much is done by the Greek, to be honest in the architecture field, they are rarely seen so I would not know to much about the Greek life.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The students are very social. During the warmer weather the green area of the campus is always packed with people hanging out and playing music. The friendships I have made on campus are very good and well all try to help each other as much as possible.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Overall I believe we are a healthy and safe campus. Being that we are in a large city we are always getting notified by email if robberies or things happen near the campus. There are also always campus police officers near each parking lots and also by the train station. I safe to walk around campus at night but you also have to be cautious of your surroundings.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of take out places, bars, and restaurants around campus. They are either walking distance or a bus or train ride away. We are also 10 mins from NYC by train so it makes it convenient if you want to sometimes go somewhere other than the nearby places.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: NJIT is near other major universities which makes it a part of a small college town within the large city of Newark. There are lots of things to do near the campus but you just have to be careful because Newark can be somewhat dangerous.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I'm not really involved in the sports aspect of the campus, however I do see banners and poster to support the different teams.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: From what my peers have told me dorming is pretty cool. I don't live far from campus so I choose to stay at home. But the dorms seem small. The cost is average and to apply for housing is short but I also know that when it comes to picking your room is through a lottery process. Upperclassmen get first pick and so on. But with the new dorm addition their has been more availability of the newer rooms.

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.
