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.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The laptops given are great, but the wifi network around campus is a little spotty in some locations.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Campus police put safety first and don't want to prosecute you, usually they just enforce safe habits and stop dangerous activities.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: You pay a lot for the computers Stevens forces you to buy ($900 per year) but they are top notch computers for engineering programs.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: People from everywhere and with many different views, and everyone gets along. It's a great environment.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Summers are hot and winters are cold. It's a nice balance. Side note: it gets really really windy on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is fun, you can join them for parties but those get old pretty quickly due to the ratio here. Their housing is the cheapest you can find at Stevens so that's a plus. Really they just do their own thing, to join or not is up to you.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a place for everyone, whether you are looking for a cheap meal or a gourmet dish you can find it in Hoboken. And iif you can't, NYC is a 10 minute walk and 15 minute subway ride away.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Co-op helps a ton, the work experience is excellent. The classes themselves are good, major specific courses are very well done but more general areas such as math and freshman courses can be poorly done.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: It's there if you need it, but there are usually cheaper and faster options (bike, longboard, etc.)

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Hoboken has everything, right next to NYC. And Stevens events aren't bad either. There's plenty to do.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is very overpriced. For example, the campus-leased apartment I live in would cost $750/month per person if leased on my own, but is $1000 through Stevens. They cut your grants if you do it on your own. If you are willing to pay the premium, the system is great. I find a hard time paying an extra $250 a month ($3000 a year) for Stevens to facilitate the process.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: No one seeks you out or spoon feeds you, but if you know what you want and have the grades to support it then you can be whichever major you please. There are plentiful options in the sciences and engineering department.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Not all teachers are good at speaking English, but most see the big picture and are fair graders. The chemical engineering and general engineering professors are passionate and reasonable.The math department, on the other hand, is close to awful.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is very little crime on the Steven Campus. Campus police are very well known and respective around. I even have conversations with them when I see them around campus. They are always willing to help out students in need whether they need a ride home, help finding a lost item, or just someone to talk to for a minute or so. I feel extremely safe on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The city of Hoboken has to be one of the greatest cities on the east coast. It's proximity to New York City is amazing. It is only a five minute subway ride to New York, as well as Jersey City. There is plenty to do in Hoboken alone as well, including; shopping, festivals, restaurants, and numerous parks. The view of New York across the Hudson River is the best there is. Students are certainly assimilated into the city. They become much like the rest of it's inhabitants. However, at the same time the campus feels as if it is it's own small town.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Mechanical Engineering is one of the most popular majors at Stevens. Being a mechanical engineering student I am able to communicate with a vast number of other mechanical engineering students, as well as educated professors, advisers, and other faculty in the same field. Still, the workload can be very stressful sometimes. It makes it easier to know that there are a lot of others now going through and who have been through the same thing that I can communicate with. Internship and job opportunities are fantastic at Stevens. Stevens has one of the top career development programs in the country. They are great at offering a co-op program which makes it easy for students to gain experience in their respective field while still able to be a full time student. Research and internship opportunities are apparent at Stevens as well.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: A lot of athletes attend Stevens, however; it is difficult to get many of the non-athlete students involved in athletics. This includes fan support, school spirit, and athletic facilities mostly. Games are not attended by many students. Some sporting events are easier to fill with fans than others, but it is still not as exciting as it should be. A school's athletics should give students school spirit. They should want to go out, be social, and support their teams. However, it is hard to do that here, and not many events are organized to get these students involved. Furthermore, the athletic facilities for non-athlete students are horrendous. They are overcrowded and do not give non-athlete students a great chance to be athletic and get into shape. It is extremely hard for students who used to be athletes, and still want to keep that athletic lifestyle to do so.
