4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus police is very helpful. My friend twisted his ankle a couple of blocks from campus, and the police went out of their way to give him a ride back to the apartment. They are strict and stern men and women, but they have kind hearts, and they do their best to keep the campus safe (and improve our college experience in the process). Kudos to them.

Facilities: I enjoy the things made available to me in the student lounge. With a wide variety of games and activities, I am rarely bored.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The design courses are interesting as well as mandatory.

Off-Campus Housing: I really enjoyed living off campus. Having no meal plan was nice and freeing. I should have used the gym facility more. Coming home was quick and fun with a longboard in hand, and going to school was easy. Shuttle Services wer amazing and easy to use.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: A lot of boys but a lot are unsocialable. Girls are scarce. Athletes are the most normal.

Academics: Registering for classes is only easy if you're lucky. You have to take a lot of classes here and depending on your major you may get very few to no electives.

Guys & Girls: There are very few girls at this school, and they're all ugly. The ratio is 72-28 guys to girls. Most guys here don't have social skills

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

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.
