3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are only good if you're in a fraternity or sorority, and not many people in the college are even in one. Thirsty Thursday's are when most parties take place.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: For some people, it does get old after a while. It's not the best, but it's definitely good and still very edible. Some of my friends who don't go to this school said they loved the GDS food. I only eat breakfast and dinner at GDS, and I get the same foods all the time, but for me, it doesn't get old.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's expensive, but I think it's worth it. Freshmen should definitely dorm in their first year, it'll give you a lot of the college experience, and you can meet many great and new people from your roommate/suitemates, your dorm floor, or in your classes. The dorm rooms are pretty barebone, though. You have to bring in most things to fill your room with, other than stuff like desks/chairs and lamps and lights.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm not coming back more than likely.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Oh its a great school but that doesn't influence.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I wouldn't know but they throw parties

1 College Freshman

Athletics: im an athlete. Only athletes support athletes

3 College Freshman

Administration: They're not enforced they use it to scare you

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: TKE will have one good party and thats it

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Someone found a cockroach in the food one time

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Redwood was just remodeled yet it is still average

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Students are trendy, flamboyant, energetic and night owls in a city that offers an exciting night life and fine dinning

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are the 0.01% of people at the university that are your typical snob that loves only one thing and hates everything else, but the other 99.99% of people at that university are fantastic.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've heard from other students that it isn't so bad.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I've seen some of the athletes in action on campus and they are great.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: When you're on campus, you're safe. The campus police are quick to respond and are serious about their jobs.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: To be honest, I haven't really thought about the Greek life here. I'm a Freshman as I'm writing this so the only time I hear about them are at large gatherings.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I personally love the "grease trucks" that park on corners on a crossroad on campus. They have a lot of good food. Other options are available, too.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Some of the college's policies are a bit difficult to understand at first, but once you hear their explanation of said policy, you'll understand the university's point of view almost instantly.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are some of those professors that you do not want to have at all for the next few months, but once you identify who they are, take that advantage to avoid them as much as possible. Anyway, the professors so far are fantastic.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Newark is not as bad as its reputation. I grew up in a city so I know what unsafe areas are like. It's also conveniently close to NYC.

3 College Junior

Academics: The best place to study at is CKB third floor or in the CE lab if you're a civil engineer. The library needs to be renovated.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: GDS is decent. People don't realize that it's actually a lot better than some other college dining halls I've been to. It gets repetitive but it's edible.

3 College Junior

Majors: NJIT accepts almost anyone with a little common sense, but half of the people accepted aren't smart enough to survive up until graduation.

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.
