Campus Food: The meal plan wasn't as good as I thought. The amount of food they gave you wasnt a lot, for a student to communicate in campus. They were other places open such as taco bell, subway, or food trucks around the corner, if you did not had money you couldn't afford to buy an extra meal.

Campus Housing: I live in campus about about a month, because i join in a program called NJIT TRIO Program. The Room quality was very poor, even though the food was alright, but we did not had a diversity of things we can choose. I live in the campus for about a month, sleep there, study there, and ate there.

Administration: They are strict where they need to be. They aren't over the top or unfair but they enforced rules so students do break them all the time. Punishments aren't too bad either depending on what rule was broken.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had no issues with my financial aid. Everything went super smoothly and I got enough aid to help me for my years here.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I've seen videos and have friends that attend great parties here. I don't like staying in newark at night so I leave after work. If I stayed on campus I know I would have no problem finding a good party.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: Im a commuter but I have been in a friends dorm. I would not mind living there if I had to but I prefer living at home.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If you go to a purpose built apartment complex for students adjacent to campus called university center you will actually pay less per year than you would if you lived in on campus housing, however you wouldn't be able to get a meal plan so it's a choice.

Off-Campus Dining: Besides a few Chinese food restaurants that were horrible the food was not bad if you order from a non chain restaurant in the area.

Administration: No complaints as of yet besides the obvious bureaucracy that you'll find at any sizable institution they pretty much get the job done just fine.

Scholarships: Make sure you've filled out the fafsa and make sure your parents tax information is up to date as well as your own if applicable, otherwise you may get your financial aid package delayed

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: While I do not personally frequent parties I do recognize that for what it is NJIT has a decent party scene for its size and location

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food served at GDS is repetitive and usually substandard and it closes way too early during the week.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Overall the dorms are nice, I especially like the having two dorm suites with their own bathrooms, but the social life that comes with living on campus leaves a lot to be desired

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

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.
