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

The atmosphere is much different at Stevens than any other school I had visited in several aspects. The students have great pride in their ability to call Stevens their college, making them more pleasant and driven to succeed. Additionally, the location gives a fast-paced, responsible and hard-working atmosphere that reinforces the need to do well academically and have a successful career.

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

During the college enrollment process, parents and students are given a tremendous amount of advice, whether it be for better or for worse. The best advice a student could receive is to follow one's heart. It may sound silly, but typically you will know the minute you arrive on campus to tour the college that this is the school for you. If that feeling is not there, don't settle on a school and don't be pressured into one. This is the place where you will spend the next 4 years of your life, and it's somewhere that will become your home. It should be the choice of the student. Along those lines, the best advice to give a parent is to let his/her child choose for him/herself, within reason of course. The child should never feel pressured into the choice of another, but should be encouraged to find what's best for him/her. Ultimately, the smartest choice is to work together and listen to each other to make the best selection possible.

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

The only downfall of Stevens would be the weather. Since it is located on a peak overlooking the Hudson River, it tends to be extremely windy and a slight bit colder than most of the surrounding area. Aside from this, however, there are no significant negatives.

Many of my classmates are upperclass white kids. They are mostly boys and play a lot of video games. It is easy to find new friends because Stevens is not cliquey at all.

Visit as many schools as you can and if it feels right, apply. At school, participate as much as you can because you're only there once!

The opportunities after graduation. If you graduate you are more than likely going to get a job within six months. The workload is pretty heavy, but it pays off to have such amount of work.

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

When looking for the right college, the main thing you must do is visit the school, stay overnight if you can. You must also ask yourself, do I want to live here for four, maybe five years of my life? You must also ask about financial aid even if you think you are not going to need and/or qualify for it; there is always the possibility of your parent's income from changing. If you are going to be playing sports get to know the coaches and your future teammates, before making a decision. The two main things a student is going to need to do well in college are study habits and time management. If you are able to develop study habits then you would get good grades, which is the key in succeeding in college. By having time management you would be able to balance academics, athletics, social life, and other activities. Then by being able to balance all of these you would get the full college experience. College is not all about studying, but it is also not all about partying and athletics...trust me on that one, it's from personal experience DO NOT PROCRASTINATE!

Describe the students at your school.

Most are very driven and always ready to do anything to succeed. They are really competitive but do help each other out if it is to their convenience. There are more men to women a 5 to 1 ratio. There is also a very small percentage of minorities on campus. Most of my classmates come from upper middle class families and went to very competitive high school and are there on sport scholarships for wither lacrosse, soccer, or basketball.

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

It is important to consider the student needs, and their comfort zone. Some schools offer great social life, but not a gret curriculum, and both the student and parent should be able to recognize what is more important. The location is very important, and the type of studeny body it has. Some schools offer its graduates promising futures, and others do not. Make sure you know what your college has to offer you for your money!! Also make your own choice. Do not make the mistake to follow a friend, a boyfriend, or a crush. You might miss out on good opportunities at a different colege that would have been your perfect fit.

What's unique about your campus?

I like the location. I like how relatively close it is to major highways and it is so close to NYC. I can take the path to the city with minimal travel time. I also love the town it is located. It is a small town but it has everything you need. It is a convinient location.

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

The right college will not always be the one you had in mind as your first choice (I ended up going to my 4th choice school, and looking back I definitely feel like it was the best choice). Apply to as many places as you can, even places you don't really think you would want to go or that you don't think you will get into. While you're at college, just keep your attitude in check. Attitude can be everything! It can determine how much you enjoy school, how well you do, and your outlook on life. Be positive and get connected somewhere on campus. A well balanced social life is the best foundation for strong academics, because if you aren't happy with where you are and what you are doing, then you definitely won't be motivated to do schoolwork!

What's unique about your campus?

Financial aid, and quality of education. It costs a lot, but I get a lot in financial aid. And since the quality of the school is very high, I get a great education for a resonable price.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for maintaining academic excellence while succeeding at sports. Just this year, Stevens Institute of Technology won an award for mainting their rank in division III sports while succeeding in the classrooms. They are also known for the difficulty involved through most majors. Engineering is the main major at Stevens and it is one of the toughest around.

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

Having gone through 2 tough years dealing with a little bit of everything, sports, fraternities, clubs, and schoolwork, I feel confident in answering this question to a concerned parent/student. College is where you/your child will spend most of the time in for the next four years. You have to know where you feel comfortable and high school is a big help for that. If you go to a big high school and the size bothers you, then you might wanna change that when you go to college. For me, I prefer a small school because every teacher you have gets to know you and that can be very helpful with the course work as well as connections for after graduation. Living on campus is also a great experience. While there may be concern about dorming affecting the student's study skills due to too much socializing/partying, there is nothing like dorming. Not only will you make great friends, but you will make great connections which can come helpful when you have a project or a hard test to study for. Lastly, you want to choose a school that has a high job placement after graduation.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who wants to succeed in life. This school offers a great and challenging education and is very well respected by outside companies. The location is perfect too. Having New York City next door allows the school to develop great connections with big companies. If you don't like feeling crowded, then this place is perfect for you. The campus only has a few 4 or 5 thousand students and the student/teacher relationship is great.

Go to the campus and talk to the students.

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

The shitty administration. They mess up everyone's financial aid/ scholarship. A lot of people get holds placed on their transcript/ registration even though they paid or have financial aid. Things don't get fixed until December, the end of the semester. The student body is extremely segregated based on if you play sports or not. THere is a lot of ego at this school even though they don't have any talent or intelligence to back it up. atheletes get away with everythingeven though it is division 3 and they get recruited, which is against the rules.

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

The upcoming student needs to examine what he or she wants out of college. If the student knows what they want to do then picking a school based on that is a good way to start but college is more then just academic work. The location and social life on campus are also big factors in the decision. My advice would be to visit many school. If the opportunity arises to sleep over at these school, definitely go for it. See what kind of environment is most productive for you. Also you should look into the other activities and programs on campus such as co-op, rotc and research opportunities on campus. Many of these activates are good ways to obtain financial support as well as valuable experience before entering the work place. The price of the school is definitely one of the factors in deciding which school is best but it should not be the final factor. If you think a school is perfect for you go out and find the financial aid and support you need. There are tons of scholarships and aid programs out there. If you have enough drive you can get what you need.

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

First advice would be to visit the college in question. See if they have an overnight experience for prospective students so the child in question could observe classroom settings and dormlife. Secondly, it depends on what the prospective student wants to do. Although I understand that not all high school or prospective know what they want to do, I think that the school, especially when identifying a school for its specific field, should be very important. For instance, I wanted to go to an engineering school. Thirdly, remember that a very important part of the college career is experience; don't get caught up in academics, though they are very important. Remember to enjoy yourself and get your work done at the same time. I feel like these are the three points that helped me choose Stevens.

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

The worst thing about stevens is the meal plan. If you are on campus you have to have the ultimate meal plan they offer (unlimmitted, which is really 10,000 meals) and if you are off-campus housing, supplied by the school it's a 60 swipe (60 meals meal plan). If your housing is unaffiliated with the school you do not need to get any meal plan. The food isn't that great, but the dining area is a great place to socialize and meet people.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Persons should not attend this school if they are looking for an easy way through college. The core classes seem easy, but as things progress classes get harder and harder. The student body is accepting of all racial and social backgrounds, as long as there is a passion for what you want to do.
