I absolutely love it here at NJIT. I'm a resident living in the honors college and the past month has been the greatest experience of my life. A cheap tuition with plenty of opportunities for financial aid. The education is top-quality. I have never once regretted my decision to go to NJIT.
NJIT is a school with many entitled kids. The male to female ratio of the school is quite the difference. There is a lot of entitled people especially amongst the athletes. They are a lot of sources to do well. The school offers many sources to do well, and offers many tutoring center for students so they can succeed. NJIT is a top research university, and it's open for people in any major. I would recommend NJIT for a student who wants to receive a good education, but if you are person who wants the college experience, NJIT is not the school for you.
it is very fun the math and especially chem classes are a little tough but if you work hard you can pass with all As.
I love NJIT. I feel like it is such a great school for such a great price. The campus is going to change a lot in the next few years. We have a new athletic center being built and a ton more. This campus is going to be fantastic a few years from now.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for New Jersey Institute of Technology is 59%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
My classmates are very diverse,unique,and future driven.
The only thing I think that my school is not doing right , is the cost of tuition its over board. The prices are going higher than usual. They should have more scholarships for student who are trying to do something good in there lifes but dont have a high gpa they should offer more help to students that have low income and are not residents of the United States. They're making those students drop there career, working in warehouses and factory, cause they cant successed in life. Students need more support and need to be taken more in consideration.
NJIT is a very diverse school with determined, hard working students seeking to be successful after graduation with their background of preparation being NJIT.
The best thing about the school is that there are people for everyone since the student body is so diverse. Another good thing about the school is that the curriculm is educational, practical, and interesting.
There is a lot of work, but all one has to do is keep their head on straight and stay focused on what they have to do.
that the math courses were as hard as they were, and that campus life was not as great as the college makes it out to be
My School is best known for being the only school in New Jersey that works hand and hand with the National Architectural Accrediating Board (NAAB) for architect majors. Meaning if you are planning to get licensed as an architect in the future and would like to stay in state, then New Jersey Institute of Technology is the school for you.
The most popular groups and teams on campus are greek life and the volleyball team. Even though these are the big things for social life, there arent many supporters. Again, social life is really bad. Most social life takes place in the pub or frat parties, other than that, people arent really that social, because many are commuters. The nightlife isnt big at all at njit, not many people are walking around excited what to do during the night. Even during NJIT day, not many people seem enthusiastic about it. The pub is pretty small, and not that active. Personally i am part of a frat, so my social life is pretty good.
From my experience, NJIT is a mediocre school. A few things I would like improved would be: to renew or expand the campus, to reexamine some professors because they really don't seem qualified to be teaching, and sadly there needs to be a larger female population. My school is far too small, I sometimes feel like I'm attending an extension of high school. The surrounding area around NJIT is also not too friendly. Many people do not want to live in Newark or even go off campus due to muggings and robberies that take place. My complaints of NJIT are fairly prolific throughout the school.
I don't brag about my school. I just say it is a difficult school to be in.
The answer to this question varies greatly, and is certainly subjective. I'm majoring in IT currently but I enjoy programming, and I know for a fact that half of the people in all of my IT classes would say that they hated it because it required some programming. That being said, I would say there are more bad professors than good professors. I've had a couple that I really enjoyed, who were very knowledgeable and challenging, and more often I get professors that are either too easy or don't seem fit for the job. Students at NJIT are not very academically competitive, and the academic requirements are quite low. Many people don't even seem to want to be there most of the time, but this may just be because they haven't found a suitable major.
The stereotype is that all NJIT students are geeks and only care about books. That is completely not true, NJIT is very diversed and people also go out and have a good time while still keeping up their grades.
If you don't know what you want to major in or lack organizational skills you may find this school to be difficult to attend as you may fall easily behind. There is little to no tolerance for late turned in work and while some professors will allow you to do extra work for a missing grade it is not an adviced course of action here. Math and Physics are not courses for the faint of heart, if you lack an affinity for mathematics or science this school should be avoided.
Safety is pretty good
Educational value is really good
you'll get a job right away
the avg person an individual makes right away from NJIT is 65,000-75,000
Social life sucks
Campus is really small and boring
The NJIT gym sucks
The food is terrible
if you plan to go to NJIT, i suggest you commute, don't waste your money.
Sports aren't that big here but the sports scene is growing. The school is putting more money into athletics and we have new facilities for athletes and students to use. Soccer is big here, even though we're not the best, you will usually see groups of students playing soccer on the new field.
That we are all computer geeks. There are several stereotypes and groups though: the architecture students all live in the archy building (true for the most part), IT students generally stick together within their major, the other three majors generally get along, the sports teams only affiliate amongst themselves, etc.
somewhat thought there are a lot of women around and there are probably more archietects than engineers
