The student population is really small, which means that professors can focus on you more, when you need help.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right college is never easy, however if you know what you really want to do in your life it will always give you a head start. If you know your major then you can look at all the specific colleges that has great programs available for your major, which will narrow down the number of colleges for you and your family to focus on. From there you can create a chart to compare the schools by things that you and your family consider to be important factors in determine the right college. By comparing this narrowed down list of schools to each other, you and your family can further narrow down the possibilities and focus more on the few schools that interest you. From this point on you should determine which school is your top, secondary and safety choices. Once you do, apply to these schools and wait for their reply. If you are accepted to all the schools great, if not, don't worry since your secondary schools might just fit you better. Now that you are accepted to the schools that interest you, you can now chose the best school to attend through affordability and distance.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

The diversity of students from different states and different parts of the world. By befriending them, I learned many different cultures and backgrounds that I would not have known otherwise.

The city atmosphere is nearby, but the school campus maintains a community feel. Very diverse student body and faculty. Also, the faculty and administration treat the students with respect and trust.

Visit as many colleges as you can prior to filling out applications. This is a good way to get a feel for each college, and helps you decide what kind of copllege atmosphere you like the most (big or small, historical or new, urban or rural, ect.). Also make sure that the colleges you choose to apply to have all the things that you want, including sports or sports facilities, extracurricular activities, and such. Once you are at college, do'nt be afraid to get involved in clubs and organizations, whether you like them or not, because you may find that there are things you enjoy that you never knew existed. Also, don't be afraid to take out loans if you need to - if you go into a loan feeling stressed, it will affect your attitude as well as your academic performance. Realize that some things just have to be done, and don't stress about it.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Too much time and money is spent on our sports programs, and too little is spent on things like lab equipment, course development, building maintainence, etc. Also, the Business Technology degree program is a joke, and way too much resources are wasted in this area of our school. This program teaches very few practical skills, and the difficulty level of the courses is ridiculously low. It is basically a program that the athletes enroll in so that they can play sports without giving much academic effort. I am thouroughly disgusted with the waste that this program is.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Stevens was the only college I applied to; I applied early decision. It was my first and only choice because of the opportunity to graduate in four years with both a Bachelors and a Masters degree.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If you aren't entirely sure about what you want to major in, you should attend a larger school with a large variety of majors. My college has no liberal arts majors, just engineering, physical sciences, and business, so if I wanted to switch to a philosophy major or something in foreign languages, I wouldn't have that opportunity. On the other hand, if you know what you want to do and what your goals are after your undergraduate schooling, it will be easy to choose a school for one specific department or major with an excellent reputation!

Describe the students at your school.

Most of them are wealthy, went to private high schools, seem pretty spoiled, and are willing to do whatever it takes to get into medical school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Stay a weekend at the college. That way, your parents aren't around and the students can really tell you what they think about the place.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Stevens is academically rigorous, but the social scene is lacking, and most students go home every weekend instad of staying here where there's nothing to do.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known how little there is to do on campus and how lonely it can be to be here all alone on a weekend by myself.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Contrary to the typical student, try not to get consumed by the college environment in the beginning, rather work as hard as you can for your freshman and sophomore year so that junior and senior year can be about balance and not catching up or trying to raise a GPA that should have been easily maintained. As you progress in your college career you will be able to balance the play with work and you will find that you will be able to enjoy yourself much more then being stressed with GPA/class concerns.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

people looking to find significant others in school.
