4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Hoboken has a lot of dining options, and with the city close by, you can get any food you want.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: The library is really small and always full of Asian students. Good luck finding a spot to study. The first floor is incredibly loud too and they don't really enforce a quiet rule. The gym is really bad, it can only hold at most 50 people and has few machines. Sometimes there's lines to get into the gym.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: The school doesn't really put much effort into facilities for students.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There's only one dining hall on campus, so it fills up fast and it gets old fast. Most of the time they have bad food. If you're a vegetarian or you like variety in your food, you won't like it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Campus police lets anything happen. Just don't get caught and you can get away with anything.

College Freshman

Weather: It's typical New York weather. It can range from really nice outside, to too hot, to freezing cold, to snow everywhere. It is really windy here too

5 College Freshman

Computers: The school gives students their own laptop. The laptops are really good and they come with all the software a student would need in any class. The laptops can run almost everything, and you get free laptop service whenever you need it.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There's not really any athletic spirit. Most of the fans in the stands are parents. No one really pays attention to any of the sports here, though. The athletes are pretty good, for a D3 school Stevens does pretty good in some sports.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Hoboken is a great city. It's really expensive, so if you want to live here or do anything, you have to be willing to spend a lot of money. With the city so close, Hoboken as a city isn't very boring.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The school revolves around Greek life, if you want to really do anything here, you should go Greek.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The school has a lot of asian students who don't speak english, and in general the school has a lot of asian and white students. There are a lot of spanish people too.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The campus is a short walk from the train station, where you can take a train to almost anywhere. The PATH and buses are also located there and the PATH runs frequently if you want to get into the city. It doesn't take long to get anywhere, and you don't really need a bus since Hoboken is so small.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus police are everywhere, but they don't do much. Hoboken is a pretty safe city and the campus is so small you can get from one place to another quickly.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For the price you pay, you don't get much. The only thing you really get is a nice view of the city, if your dorm is near the city. The dorms are pretty small and they're all corridor style (except CPA, which are designed triples with a private bathroom). In some upperclassmen dorms you'll have a private bathroom but they're all corridor style dorms (which can be good or bad depending on what you want). People try to move off campus or to leased housing as soon as possible if they can. For what dorming costs though, you're not getting much.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If you want a typical college experience, then look somewhere else. If you want a large campus, lots of clubs, an environment with a lot of school spirit, this isn't the place to go. If you want to have fun, chances are you won't like it here. If you want an active student body or if you want a lot of diversity, this is the last place you want to go. If you want guaranteed good results from your education, then this is the place to go. It may not be the most fun or the best college around, but it seems like everyone who goes here has a good career lined up right after they graduate. Generally, you can expect a job offer and I haven't heard of anyone having a hard time finding a job after graduation. Some people have jobs guaranteed before they graduate.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you're not 21, you won't have a good time. Frats host nearly all the parties and they're all pretty bad. You'll have to join a frat in order to party here, and the really bad ratio makes a lot of parties sausage fests. You'll need a fake in order to have any fun drinking in the dorms. If you're 21 and have a lot of money to spend, then you'll have a great time. Hoboken is full of bars. Until then, you'll be pretty bored and probably end up going to visit other colleges (NYU or Rutgers) if you want to have fun.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: If you can get off-campus housing (and you can afford it), it's pretty great. The apartments in Hoboken are pretty good, although they're really expensive and it's difficult to get off-campus housing, especially as a freshman. Normally you need to know someone or be willing to spend a lot of money to get good housing off-campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: One dining hall gets boring fast, but the meal plan for freshmen gives unlimited swipes so go whenever you want!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: No one sees anything different about anyone because they are greek

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym is open to everyone, but has only enough room for 50 people. Lines are often.

3 College Freshman

Parking: You will never find a spot off campus, but there is usually parking on campus. Permits are not that expensive, and campus police is lenient with the parking situation because they know it is Hoboken.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Summer is amazing, and the view comliments it nicely. Howe is a wind machine, and even though it was made to divert wind, it just makes it worse. Winter is snowy and cold but classes are usually very warm.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: About 20 minute walk to the Hoboken train station and bus terminal, so there should be no problem catching a ride. Plus taxis are only $5 anywhere in Hoboken

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus police are the best, and there are hardly ever incidences on campus

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The Ratio... That's all I have to say. It is about 30% girls and 70% guys, and almost all of the girls have boyfriends.
