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.

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.
