5 College Freshman

Facilities: Library offers an environment where you can easily study in complete quietness. Athletic center offers different gyms for athletes and regular nonathletic students.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Campus is small which makes it easier to get to class. Our school's team are top in college in teams.

2 College Senior

Facilities: The main focus of the school is to increase enrollment although they are failing in the retaining aspect. The recreational facilities are always in use by the school's teams. The weight room is small and cluttered with useless equipment that is always in need of servicing. There are few campus events or traditions that gain enough popularity for students to go too. The academic atmosphere is very cut throat. Every student is there for themselves and nothing more. The math and sciences department do not care for the students and only continue teaching just to finish the curriculum. However I must say that the professors that are in your specialized field of study are outstanding.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The athletic center is practically new along with the soccer field. They have amenities such as a pool, tennis courts, bball courts, and even a game room. The game has bowling alleys too. All the dorms have a common space with a tv and pool tables. Most campus activities happen at night so if you're a commuter be prepared to spend the night in someone's dorm or walk through newark at night.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: If you're looking for an easy business school then NJIT is for you. The School of Management is really young and right now it is pretty basic for your average student. Don't get me wrong, they are trying to improve it each year by bringing in new professors and courses. A lot of the work is done online but attendance is always mandatory. Like most schools, if you miss three classes you fail.

Some of the best features of NJIT are its libraries and lounges; they are very modern, well-designed, and comfortable—as much a visual pleasure as they are helpful and fun. The libraries have extensive databases, with significant information available online for student convenience. The lounges have ample furniture and amenities. In terms of academic buildings, the science labs and theater, on the other hand, are a bit rundown. These areas and the buildings in which they are located are older facilities. The equipment is not as efficient, the seating often uncomfortable, and the design bland. When it comes to breaking a sweat or hosting a campus program, the athletic center is very new and can act as a venue for many different events. While somewhat old, it's still in good condition. The equipment is replaced when worn, so the treadmills, rackets, nets, and other such items are always in fine condition.

Despite all of the facilities and amenities, students tend to get very bored on campus. There are not enough facilities to entertain a significant portion of the students at any given time, and the student organizations have trouble hosting enough events to make better use of the limited space or equipment. Many students go home whenever possible to avoid the boredom.

Clubs and Organizations on Campus
There are many clubs that offer all sorts of experiences to NJIT students. Whether a student is looking for a social club, a career-specific club (like the Society of Women Engineers), or a more active club (like the Student Activities Council or the student newspaper), there is a club for any interest. Many students join clubs if they aren't involved with theater, athletics, or work. It is somewhat easy to start a club. All the student needs is to draw up the club constitution and have enough students interested in joining said club.
