5 College Freshman

Transportation: Very easy to get around, especially with New York so close. Flights and trains are very easy to access.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm engineering undecided right now, and won't have to declare until after my 3rd semester. I really like it this way because at the beginning I was set on being a Civil Engineer but am now considering other options. Our required classes are an opportunity to learn a little bit about each major.

4 College Freshman

Majors: From what I hear, job placement is excellent at Stevens after graduation. They have great connections to help begin your career, but even without using those resources engineers are in high demand. Finding a job after college is not a big concern.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It has been great living in freshman dorms as facilities are very comfortable and classes are extremely close. Living in an apartment next year which is cool except it costs significantly more and is a 10 block walk from campus.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Good engineering curriculum, wish there were more variety though

3 College Freshman

Academics: Mostly engineering and business, but not much room to explore other interests

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I would give it 3 and a half stars. I got a nice academic scholarship, but got 0 financial aid. Considering my family's income and how much my tuition still costs, it is hard to believe they did not give us anything. We even appealed twice, but still no need-based aid.

Diversity: Coming from San Francisco, wow. This was one of the biggest adjustments I've had to make. Shocked at how many Conservative Christians there are, who seem so stubborn and unwilling to explore beyond their comfort zone. I am white, but still consider myself very much an outsider here (Jewish and democrat). Having said that, political affiliation does not affect how people see you on campus, nor are many people very outspoken about it. Maybe that's why I didn't notice it until after I came here.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Grew up in San Francisco, where it's very mild and sometimes warm. The winter was a big adjustment that I was not a big fan of, but that's just me. Snow days were cool.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Being on a varsity team is probably my favorite part about being at Stevens. I could not imagine enjoying my time here without it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They act like they're very strict with the rules but as far as I've seen it's pretty laid back. It would be nice if they just acted more laid back as well, I don't think it would have a harmful effect. The people who come here are mainly worried about their future, they know how to be responsible without being forced to.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Hoboken itself is very laid back but whenever you're in the mood for something more you can just go to New York City. It's the best of both worlds.

College Freshman

Parking: I do not drive, and even if I did it would not matter. Nobody here has a car because you really don't need one (unless you commute)

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of places you can go to find delicious food from many different cuisines. Plus, New York City's infamous food scene is just half an hour away..

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being on a team is great, but coming from California, you feel different from everyone else. Most people are from within a 100 mile radius, and they mostly define the social dynamic. They are very nice and inclusive, just a surprising amount of cultural differences to get used to. Classes are fine, but it would be nice to have more humanities offerings. They are finally thinking of adding language courses, which seems more than overdue...

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.

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.
