3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I enjoyed most of my classes, but some of them were pretty tough.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: On campus is pretty safe, but the area around it is a different story.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived on campus in my freshman year, it was okay.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I really don't participate in any athletic programs.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like NJIT......some classes are a little tough, but so far it's been a great experience.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Good school for architecture, engineering, or computer science.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: mostly computer and technology centrist. if you want to do anything with your right brain, you need to hop on over to rutgers

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: i'm male and white. my opinion is apparently useless anyway

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I have not idea about this.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: the honors dorm is fantastic. that's basically the long and short of it

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: they seem like decent folk

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I just use them the facilities for personal fitness. i rarely know what the teams are doing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: While many of the freshmen STEM field classes can be slightly unforgiving, I feel that overall my College, NJIT, provides some of the best computer and technology based education in the state, equal in many ways to Steven's institute and Rutgers New Brunswick.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The curriculum is extremely rigorous. Many people drop out within the first semester. Professors generally care a lot for students and have good office hours.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are lots of people of all sorts of backgrounds, including race, sexual orientation, religion, political beliefs, etc. Most people are left leaning though.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The campus is in Newark so there is lots of access to drugs. There are also liquor stores and bars that don't card. However very few students will do drugs other than alcohol/weed/study drugs.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a good school and you will meet lots of good people. However, if you are looking for the archetypal "college" experience, this is not the college for you.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Graduates make a great tuition-to-starting salary ratio. NJIT also has a good reputation within NJ.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very few crimes happen in the center of campus. On the perimeter, however, there are lots of muggings and other crimes.

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.

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.
