3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are some professors that I am not sure why they choose to do this as a profession, but that number is minimal compared to the amount of dedicated and well educated professors who are willing to make sure you are receiving the best possible education. Class sizes are usually around 30, which for a university is pretty small, meaning the professors are willing and able to help individuals and they really get to know you for you, not just a number.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A coach said he has never had an engineering student graduate that did not have a job lined up. The networking the school has with companies is outstanding and the internship opportunities are always there if the student is willing to go to advisors and ask about them. I am constantly receiving emails about internship opportunities for my major.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I find that walking around campus feels very safe and comfortable. During the day there are lots of people around, at night it feels better to be in a group. There are constantly police on bikes, in smart cars, and on foot patrolling the campus which is comforting.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am currently a student-athlete and athletics offer many perks as well as responsibilities. As an athlete you get priority scheduling before all other students which is a nice perk. There are also varsity athlete- only weight rooms. With that being said there are still many areas for those not on varsity teams to work out. A brand new $100 million dollar athletic center will be completed in the fall of 2017! Also being a student-athlete comes with more academic meetings and mandatory study hall hours, but it offers more advising to help you stay on track and offer opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: NJIT offers a wide variety of courses and professors, which allows each individual student to choose what interests them. Of course there are required course that may not be the most fun, but the peer mentors and TA's that I have dealt with are all incredibly helpful and approachable.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are two police stations on NJIT campus. You will see a police car on every street. There are 3 types of police you will see around NJIT; Newark Police, NJIT police and Rutgers Police.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: There are many options to consider when living on campus at NJIT. Freshmen will dorm in cypress hall their first year, then most move to Laurel hall. They all come with recreation areas, lounges, study rooms, kitchens (except cypress), Laundry rooms. Oak Hall is for seniors and graduates and is very hard to get into.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek Life at NJIT is very popular. There is on and off campus housing for Greek students.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Popular sports at NJIT are basketball and volleyball, and a new athletics center is being built.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NJIT has an amazing internship program that will almost certainly land you a great job

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have attended NJIT for about two months in a summer program.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors I have had have been wonderful and offered extra help to any student. They do their job well. Some are hard to understand but its a part of life dealing with people from other countries.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: NJIT is honestly the best when it comes to value of a degree. Many students graduate with a job already and have great starting salaries.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have had a few incidents of assault and a murder. It was definitely scary but the residents in the surrounding areas aren't the best.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I've only been inside them a few times since I commute. I did not want to live in Newark

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is good because it helps you socialize. NJIT is all about academics so most of the greeks are intelligent kids.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics at our school definitely bring us together as a college. We get very involved and show our support all the time. Definitely a plus when it comes to this school since a lot of us are there for academics.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had an amazing experience so far. It has taught me how to be a responsible adult. I have experienced hard classes and work experience. I learned how to network and I have met plenty of people that can assist me in my future.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Do what you want at the end of the day, if you want to find stuff it's pretty easy to do so if you don't you can easily stay away and not ever come into contact with it.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: NJIT is what you make of it there's bad things and good things about the school, but as long as you find a good group of friends college is going to be a blast.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Newark isn't the safest city, but campus itself is really safe. We have 5 police departments (NJIT Police, Rutgers Police, Essex County College Police, Newark Police, and Essex County Sheriffs) patrolling the area and the college has done practically everything to ensure that campus is safe, your pretty much can't go 2 minutes without having a cop pass you on patrol. Obviously things happen, but as long as you're not stupid on campus nothing will happen to you.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

First and foremost, NJIT is a school a student will want to choose if he or she is looking to major in mathematics or sciences. NJIT's math department rivals MIT's mathematics programs, and the school is always doing major research projects and developing new products or more efficient alternatives to what already exists. However, NJIT is, without a doubt, not the school to choose if a student has any inclination toward the humanities or liberal arts, unless he or she is interested in the technological aspect of social science. Outside of the intense curricula, major projects, and high hiring rates for NJIT graduates, there is very little that makes NJIT unique. The athletics department is not impressive; the social life is, for the most part, dead; and the staff does not work nearly as close to its students as professors claim to during the introductory sessions. Other than the school's stellar math and science reputation, the other benefits of NJIT are that the school has a varied food selection for students and that some of the buildings are new and impressive. There are also clubs to explore student interests and activities, though most of these are of a technological orientation, as well.

Overall, NJIT has a great curricula in the sciences, but it is not the school for those with interests extending beyond the realm of technology. While a student can make a tight-knit group of friends in this small student body, students are often so busy studying that social lives are the last thing a student can worry about.
