3 College Student

Athletics: i do not really pay much attention to the athletics but they do have outstanding athletes that help give our school a good reputation.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: NJIT so far has been great for the few days that i have spent there they really have shown me that they care about the student's success. They give us hard-working challenges to make sure we are readily equipped for what the future might hold for us. I would re-choose this school all over again because they help me get ready for my career , they teach me the important material. I probably wouldn't choose it because of all the projects i have been hearing about.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So the classes are good. Generally taught by someone with a doctorate which is good for most people. The variety of courses doesn't really exist. We all have planned curriculums with some 16-19 credits planned out so that we can hopefully graduate on time. We can not really change that without pushing our graduation date back and no one really wants to do that. The class styles are very much lecture style classes with some of the lab classes being more hands on. There are some large classes but those are the general classes like calculus or general chemistry. Classes specifically for your major are much smaller and tend to be a group of people you will be going to class with for the rest of your time at school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So this school is great for getting a job. They had an entire building for it. And while I personally haven't gotten a job through them yet, they have a high success rate for coaching you to be the best you that you can be and getting you that job and position. I can't speak on the alumni association, because apart from the fact that they host a lot of events at the school, i know virtually nothing about the,. The career fairs always have the best companies for your major. Exxon, Johnson and Johnson, Merck to name a few. All in all its pretty great.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: At the beginning of orientation every single time, they do a sketch about sexual assault that really drives it home that sexual assault is sexual assault no matter what you try to label it as. The campus crime is low. If any crimes are committed it tends to be crimes by outsiders not people that attend the university. They always tell you to walk in groups and they have the NJIT Police at most major intersections so that you can feel safe. They have a blue light system so you can always report things like that. I tend to feel safe on campus because I am generally inconspicuous enough that I can pretty much not be spotted or not viewed as threatening in any situation.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life is pretty much the social atmosphere of our campus. If we didn't have Greek life there would be no parties or a huge number of events they throw. I think its great that they hold huge events and do a multitude of things for their individual charity effort they are sponsoring. I personally think that what they do is good for the NJIT community. There are Greek houses and you can live in them. There are the school built ones which are very nice and fancy and then there are the ones that are just near the school.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our teams are pretty like in general, some of our fencers were nationally ranked, our basketball team nearly made it to march madness and we have soccer teams. But not a lot of their games are well attended. Mostly because NJIT is a mostly commuter school so the people who go to the games are the people living on campus but a majority of them would rather study and not go to the games. We only have school spirit whn the game might be on TV which only happens for our basketball team. The facilities are good, in fact they are undergooing a huge renovation to add more space and a higher quality gym in general. But that means currently there's no soccer field or track so that hurts the rugby team, the baseball team, the track team and of course the soccer team.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's alright. It's not that big of a campus and is a really tiny school, but for the concentrations they teach you they tend to be well qualified and well equipped to teach these things. The actual social part of the school is kind of disheartening because its not really a very social school besides the couple of parties thrown off campus. But if you're just going there to get a good education then you have come to the right place.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The overall safety could be improved because there is always the risk that you might get mugged

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience when applying was great and the recruiting team was helpful.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Although I don't house myself, I have heard from my classmates that housing is average

4 College Junior

Greek Life: From what I have seen Greek students strive to do very well in school.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Don't know much about athletics at this school but it seems good.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is an overall great school with many opportunities .

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are only two sororities

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: People don't care too much for sports at my school

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a small school focused around science

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All in all the professors are amazing and the student body is accepting. The is a wealth of courses offered and class sizes are relatively small. Each professor has their own individual style of teaching.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: An NJIT degree is extremely valuable. I am confident in the education i will receive and the connections i will make.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: This campus is not the safest in the world however it is not the most dangerous. It is inevitable that if you are walking at nights it is best to walk in a group. In addition, campus safety is more often than not there when you need them or close by. I personally believe that there should be more security cameras in the parking deck and throughout the campus. I also would like to see more distress signals around campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks are not known for their wild parties on this campus as oppose to many other campuses. They are rather known for spreading awareness of issues in the community and bringing the campus together with numerous activities.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Student involvement is relatively in sport is high.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The student body is both open minded and diverse.

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 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.
