Describe the students at your school.

Classes are a mix of nerds, jocks, and everyone in between, which isn't to say that the social life here is typical of every college. You pretty much find your own clique and stick with them because you'll find your interests falling into one of the 3 areas mentioned. It's a small school and so that essentially means that your friends in the fall semester are your friends in the spring and you typically won't meet anyone new unless they're in a different graduating class.

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

Any college can look good based on rankings, pamphlets received in the mail, tour guides, or pure statistics. However, choosing the right college is more so about visiting the school and getting several first-hand accounts from students that aren't paid to "sell the school." Obviously the only true way to find out if a college is right for you is if you experience it yourself firsthand, but of course you want to pick the right school the first time around. What prospective students may forget is that in order to do well at a college, you need to be happy with your location and the people you're around. Many factors need to be considered aside from academics like the surrounding area(urban/rural), the type of people that attend the school(outgoing, nerdy, etc), and what you can do in the community when you have free time. College is not just school, but an experience and you definitely do not want to make the wrong choice before beginning your adult life as a professional.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone that values their social life as much as academics and extra-curriculars should stay away from Stevens. Yes, it is nice to have the faculty recognize you whenever you enter the office, but there is practically no school spirit and that usually means low attendance at sports games and on campus activities. The campus is dead on weekends, and if there is something happening, it is usually a frat party and that means 90% of the people there are guys. If Stevens was a small school with a wider range of majors, maybe it would not be like this.

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

Stevens Institute of Technology is a small technical school with a beautiful campus outside New York City that has a strong focus on engineering, the sciences and research in both.

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

Personally, when I took my first tour through my college campus, I knew it was where I belonged. Therefore, I advise every student I know that is on the college hunt to first visit the campus of a prospective school and imagine yourself walking around there everyday. Sometimes, you can just feel that it is the right fit for you.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

As a very active student, it is frustrating to hear complaints from fellow students about the school when they are not involved. It is difficult to listen to others barrage the work you dedicate so much time and effort to, especially when they do not make an effort to help themselves.

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

My sister is applying to college this year and she asked me the same question. I told her that academicly and socially all schools are exactly the same, because i all depends on what you make of them. So how do you choose? Well you decide on the things you cant control like location, classes and demographics. I knew i wanted to be an engineer, go to a small school but near a big city! Stevens is a perfect fit for that.

It is the oldest engineering school in the nation. Though it's through the engineering program at NYU, its proximity to NYC definitely gives it an advantage.

Make sure to visit and really research student life. In the long run, being in an environment suitable and compatible to the individual will let that person truly excel, no matter what university.

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

The rigor and time commitment involved with the field of study I chose to pursue.

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

The teachers are very smart and know what they are talking about, but have difficulty conveying it to the students, while the administration is rarely helpful.

Describe the students at your school.

Most classmates are willing to help study or provide study materials - older students are crucial for passing classes.

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

In order to choose the right college, you have to figure out exactly what you want out of a college. If you want to be guaranteed a job after graduation, choose a school with a good career development office or strong co-op program. If you like a college because of its location, make sure you actually visit it. If you're very religious, perhaps choose a college with your religious affiliation, or a place to practice your religion nearby. The most important thing is to know exactly what you want going into your college search, and to always keep that in mind while looking. It is very easy to get lost in the search and forget your goals. To make the most out of your college experience, again, you must always be aware of what your goals are. Many people float along, without giving thought to what they want or what makes them happy. You must always strive and aim for your goals instead of aimlessly hoping your studies or your major will get you there.

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

First, I would urge students to do their best in high school, since their grades and GPA could prove the difference of whether or not they get to go to their favorite college. Second, together with their parents they have to discuss the cost of college and whether financial aid would be enough for them. During this economic crisis most banks are reluctant to give away loans to students, so it would prove a good idea spending the first and second years to a college of second choise. Another way to save money would be to attend a college in your own state. Last but not least, I would advise students to get involved in college activities. Making friends and joining clubs could prove very beneficial when it comes to studying and preparing for school work. Also, it is common knowlegde that college classes tend to be very crowded. Taking the initiative and talking to your Professors not only separates you from the rest, it also shows your Porfessors that you have a keen interest in that particular subject.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school would have to be the Honor Code System, where every student promises not to cheat during a test. It has ended up becoming a joke, with most students not respecting it!

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

Visit the campus, talk to current students. Even the tour guides will try to talk-up the school. To get an honest opinion, talk to a current freshman or sophomore.

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

The food actually sucks. Stevens tries to wine & dine you when pre-frosh visit, but then bring out the crappy food on a daily basis.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Everyone is intelligent at Stevens, so study groups & cheating rings are very common. The curves in classes benefit those who cheat. You're basically cheating YOURSELF if you don't cheat because you won't do as well as those who do.
