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

The best advice that can be given in regard to finding the correct school is that you must talk to as many regular students as possible, if possible. The students that guide the tours will paint the most favorable picture that they can for the school, while the regular students will tell it as it is. In order to make the most of the college experience one must make friends early and often in order to develop a group of people that you can develop connections with.

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

The advice that I would give to students about finding the right colege is to keep your options open and take advantage of opportunities that some schools offer such as open house, tours, sitting in on a class, or even staying the night on a prospective student sleeping bag weekend. All of these options help you better see what the college has to offer and help you narrow down your choices ,giving you and idea of what goes on around the campus. I would do some research on the shool before you attend an interview and ask questions so that you have an idea about the school that you may end up attending. Keep an open mind and remain positive because this time in your life can be very stressful deterimining where you want to spend the next four years of your life. Never loose hope and always believe in yourself for making it this far in your school career. Best of luck !!

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

The dorms have problmes with bed bugs and mice. They are not very clean and always need repair. The food in the cafeteria is not great. There are not many options for students who are vegetarians or have special needs. It cost a lot of money and for what we pay to attend the school there are not many things that are given back to the students. The desks in the classrooms are dirty and broken, students sometimes stand up to take notes. The lockers in the buildings are broken and have not been fixed to store books and supplies.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The teachers are extreamly open to getting to know the students and offereing office hours to help the students understand the material. There are a lot of research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to get invloved in during their time at college. The students are more than willing to form study groups and work together to complete homework and assignments. Stevens follows an Honor Code which must be signed by every student on all homeworks , papers, and projects.

What are the academics like at your school?

I know that there's a ton of people who complain about Stevens professors, but turn around and ask those people if they've ever gone to a professor's office hours, or dropped by their department head's office. Sure, there are a few professors who are more talented in research then teaching (meaning lots of positions for research assistants!) but we are a very open, friendly school where the entire administration is focused on making SIT an even better school. Corny, yeah I know, but completely true. Also, I've never seen any one student refuse to ask another student for help because it might screw up the curve. I have seen students helping each other with homework until well past midnight, or letting a friend print a paper in their room 5 minutes before it's due.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

Not really. You have some people who are really sociable and outgoing as soon as they get to Stevens, but there are also some people who are really shy and quiet. What's great is that most of the people at school were the smart ones in their class at some point, so no one alienates each other for being smart or a little awkward. I have never, ever, ever, ever seen anyone get bullied at school or mocked to the point of tears- something that's all too common in high school.

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

Mechanical Engineering originated at Stevens. The school has been very influential on the world of engineering. The now international American Society of Mechanical Engineers began here. New York City, quite arguably one of the most amazing cities in the world, is directly across the river and the famous skyline is your scenery walking to class. You can get into the city in about twenty minutes.

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

When looking for a college it's important to understand that beyond being a place where you will learn for the next four years, this is a place that you will live for the next four years (assuming that you will be living on campus). You should go to school somewhere where you are interested in living. Academics are important, but you can usually find similar caliber schools with much different atmospheres within a reasonable radius of where you are looking to go to school. The key to making the most out of your college experience is learning and exploring within the classroom as well as out of it. Don't be afraid to try new things. College is a place where you can figure out what you like and who you are. Push yourself to your limits and you will discover your full potential.

What's unique about your campus?

It has a very prestigious engineering program. However, it is only usually recognized on the east coast for some reason. The curriculum is challenging and gives you a solid engineering background even if the teachers aren't that great. For a small school the social scene isn't bad. Freshmen year is usually marked by visiting the frats. A large majority of the student population is greek. After freshmen year hoboken and New York City can provide enough entertainment to keep you happy.

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

Choose your college based on your own interests and your feelings about being on a particular campus rather than being swayed by your parents' or teachers assessment of the best fit for you.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who primarily wants name recognition from a school rather than the experiences of an academic program.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I'm interested in many areas of study but so far I have had to focus on core courses and can't have been unable to take courses in other programs.

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

You, the student decides to make the most of college. College should be considered for its academics and social life which should be a factor that should not be overlooked. There must be a balance between them both to feel comfortable as an attending student, but staying focus on academics should never be forgotten.

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

The worst thing I consider about my college is the life during the weekends.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

When it comes to my college I brag about the prestige and career choices I will have once I graduate. Also, I brag about the location of my college and the accessibility to go to New York.

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

Parents should take an active roll in helping their childern search for a collage, but the final desision should be left for the student to make. Parents can intriduce the student to prospective schools but should not influence the students final decision. After all the student must be completely satisfied with their choice. If they feel they have been pressured into a school they might find it difficult to stay focused. Students must be one hundered percent satisfied with their choice in order to succeed.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How much fun it is to stay on campus. I have never been really late for classes and am able to study and relax without having a set schedule. The freedom i have allows me to prepare for classes and still gives me the option to interact with other students on campus.
