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

Find out how it works behind the scenes to the best of your ability - there's almost nothing worse than finding a largely unresponsive and apathetic faculty and staff where you're investing the most important years of your life.

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

The motivations behind the faculty and staff. All the administration cares about is money, all the professors care about is research.`

Describe the students at your school.

Most are interested in the classes they are taking, but some are only there, because of requirement as Stevens likes to have their students to be well rounded in all areas. Even if you focus on Liberal Arts for example there is still computer programming classes to take, etc. Most students are happy with this some are not and will be pretty apathetic in classes.

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

Don't look at college as just something to get through. Find a college to enjoy, even though the money might be tight.

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

The campus life socially can be pretty boring sometimes. Also the liberal arts aspect of the school is not as well developed, but it's getting there.

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

Go with your heart. Visit a bunch of campuses to get a feel for them and go with the school that you feel most comfortable wtih because you will be living there for a while and you have to be ok with that.

What's unique about your campus?

The cooperative education program, which is a 5 year program that allows students to get real-word experience to help build resumes and networks in order to get an idea of what job they'd like to have and what direction to take

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

Make sure you visit the college, stay over night if you can, to get a feel for what the college is really like before you make a decision!

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school is not crazy competitive like Harvard or Cornell, where you want to kill yourselves sometimes, but it is competitive, so you should be prepared to work hard, yet there is time for you to enjoy many other activities, including the NYC which is one train stop away! You just have to remember to manage your time wisely. For some classes you really have to study more than others. You can either stay in your room all day or go out and socialize, there are many opportunities it's your choice :D

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

For people who take 20 credits and above, which is a majority, sometiems it feels so overwhelming, b/c you have so much work to do, however, if you manage your time properly you can do that plus have extra for sports, volunteering, chorus/band/play production, or join any other club :)

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

I still remember the uneasy/exciting feeling of looking for a college. I recommend to every person to decide what they truly want to get out of college. When applying is seems like they all offer the same education but with just a different atmosphere; I learned that this was wrong the hard way. I narrowed down to two schools. Assuming that the academics would be relatively the same at either place I chose the more 'appealing 'campus which had a few more things that interested me. After going through the first semester without learning anything and after talking to upperclassmen and graduates, it was time for me to evaluate what I really wanted out of college. I thought about it long and hard and decided to transfer to the other school; even though I loved everything else about my first school. I made my academics key. So my advice for those looking for a college: decide if you want to hang out, not learn as much and get a so-so degree, or if you want a hardcore degree that will really get you into the 'meat' of you major? The decision is harder then you may think.

What's unique about your campus?

The positive attitudes from the students and the beautiful and maintained campus.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A 'morally straight' person who can overcome slacking off. I do about 30 hours a week of class and 35 hours out studyinf/homework; and I am not that smart of a guy. I feel like it is one big National Honors Socitey, everyone is pretty smart and thinks relativley in the same way.

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

Find a school in a location you like, especially if you live far away. Most academic programs are the same, but the social environment varies tremendously. Also, the size of a school means alot so do not take it lightly.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Professors are often hard to reach. Do not always respond to emails in a timely manner. Curriculum can be challenging at times, especially around finals.

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

The best advice I can give is to choose a college that will give you the ultimate college experience. This does not mean having fun all the time and partying all the time. A college that can provide this sort of experience has a perfect balance between studies and having fun . Volunteering and hanging out with friends is an awesome experience. Definitely stay on campus and dorm-its here that you make friends for a lifetime. Network with people and go to career fairs...its here that you show yourself to prosepective companies that you may one day work for. Join a service fraternity like (Alpha Phi Omega) and have fun. Be a leader not a follower..don't just join a dozen clubs and be a member. Join 2 or three organizations/clubs/frat and have some sort of leadership in that group. Above all keep your gpa above 3.4 and you will do fine.

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

I brag about the coop program. This program helps students find jobs during the semester and for the summer. This is the best part about Stevens. The people that work there know what they are doing and do their jobs well.
