3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I believe some professors are putting to much work on the students instead of helping the students understand the materials of the class

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: NJIT is located in the center of Newark, which is a town with a crime problem. As long as you are with someone when stepping outside of the campus you should be fine, and stay aware when walking at night. If you feel unsafe or nervous you can call the campus security for an escort.

Overall Experience: NJIT is a very difficult college, but if you put enough work in, it is worth it. The career opportunities are tremendous but there are a few obstacles in the way. The most significant would be the professors. NJIT professors are a shot in the dark, and the great ones are absolutely outnumbered, and usually have their classes filled instantly.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Many students who do well at NJIT will have no issue finding a job or internship before they even leave. Many workers on campus aren't the friendliest of people.

Campus Housing: NJIT is majorly a commuting college so if you do not dorm you will be missing out a huge part of the social atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life at NJIT is huge if you are the type to socialize quite often, something that many people on campus don't do.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: NJIT has recently become a Division 1 school, so athletics have recently become important.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a very demanding college but in the end, it pays off.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I had great teachers, most of my favorite teachers were a part of my major (Biology).

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I was a pre-med student so I didn't utilize the career center/services. (We usually go off to med school instead of entering the workforce right away)

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I haven't had any personal experience with this, so I don't think I can accurately represent this.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I had a great time in the new Honors dorm--I really couldn't have asked for better.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There is no tension between Greeks/Non-greeks, which I greatly appreciated. People are not pressured into joining certain social circles but welcomed when interest was expressed.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Learned a lot, met great people. Hard work payed off.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The only issue I had was course availability.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: So far i have not heard of any serious incidents where the security played a huge role in it

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Njit is a really great campus, you get out of it what you are willing to put in. The campus has different events to give the regular studying some life and give us all a break.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NJIT will get you a job in your field or atleast fully prepare you. There are hundreds of programs that set you up with internships, shadowing programs, etc

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorming makes college life easier in certain aspects, it improves one's social life, and you are rarely ever late to class

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic department at NJIT is pretty good.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NJIT is a very efficient institution that knows how to give valuable information to their students and allows us to gain real world experience in our majors.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes are difficult as expected. The expected class loads are worth-while.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school offers a lot of different opportunities for the student to prepare to get an intership and start with their carrier

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is not a lot of communication or information about it

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
