Going to Stevens allows for a broad spectrum of engineering before classifying into a specific major. Getting into the Engineering school at Stevens was a challenging yet rewarding experience. There was a simple essay explaining why you wanted to be an engineer along with a normal application. Luckily, the application for me was free! After sending the important information, they required an in person interview with the admissions staff. I loved the interview because the staff wanted to get to know ME, not the girl I was as written down with the AP classes and the high merits. It became a personal experience with people who love to learn; especially about engineering. Advice would be to just be yourself; my interview lasted an hour and a half because we talked about Chipotle! There are no wrong answers, the admissions staff wants to know you!

I absolutely love my school! I was big on finding a school that was nearby a major city, and the fact that my school is just a subway ride from NYC is awesome! I have a view of the city skyline from my dorm room and the walk to breakfast everyday is just so beautiful. The campus is small, so all of my classes are close to each other. Other than the hike up to the Howe center for food, the campus is extremely convenient. There is green despite this being a campus in a very urban environment. The buildings are all very impressive and up to date with technology so many classes utilize their smartboards. Also, Hoboken is a great city to be living in, and with just a two block walk to Washington Street, you have everything you could need right at your fingertips. Hoboken is a safe, comfortable city and I've grown to love it over the past few months. Overall, I really love my school and would recommend it to anyone interested!

Plainly Put: Engineering Is Not for Slackers! Any engineering major at my school requires that the student be an extremely hard worker with a love for very difficult science and mathematics courses. Plainly put, this major is not for students who wish to cruise through their courses without extensive studying and practice. Especially with my majoring in chemical engineering, the courses all built atop on another, so it is important to always try and keep past course materials at hand in order to refresh on old topics that may be called upon again. The workload is pretty heavy, but it is more manageable if you sharpen your time management skills and always keep on top of the course work. If you have a both a thirst for math, science, and engineering, as well as a hunger for learning and exploring its various topics, then this major is perfect for you!
