There were a few hiccups at the beginning, but it's relatively smooth sailing now.

I've been living in New Jersey for my entire life. It's difficult to gauge my like or dislike of the climate here when I've grown up with it.

A private shuttle bus circles around Hoboken's center street, Washington Street, about every 30 minutes with something like 10 stops along the route. The stops are all at highly-convenient locations and the shuttle runs a few hours short of 24.

Health & Safety:
The Police here are great, kind and caring for the student body.
College Freshman 2013-11-25T14:29:23Z
Sports here are pretty intense for a Division 3 school. Swimming here is nationally ranked.

Parking is difficult in Hoboken, as it is. Stevens does provide some parking lots, and you would need a permit to park there.

Drugs and alcohol are present at this school, like any other, but they are generally isolated mostly to the fraternity and sorority houses. Besides this, the drug scene is pretty non-existent.

I'm a Freshman this year. I am enjoying all of my classes and most of my professors are ok. Basically everyone here studies engineering.

Your first year on campus you are garunteed housing on campus so only public transportation is needed if you are going into New York, otherwise walking should get you anywhere. If you are an upperclassman that lives off campus a shuttle runs from the off campus housing to the campus and even to the Path station sometimes. This shuttle is free, but schedules are only given to the students that live with residence life off campus housing. Walking isn't that bad either though, so it's not really a problem.

The computer labs usually crowded at crunch times, like midterms and finals, but besides that, you can always find a spot. All undergraduate students are given their own computers, and with WiFi. You are also given a printer upon entrance into the university so printing shouldn't be a hassle.

Health & Safety:
I have never felt unsafe on campus. It is a small, beautiful, safe place to be. Keep your doors locked to avoid petty theft or outsiders that wander into campus looking to steal.

Ratio of men to women is bad. Everyone's friendly though

There are only two Chemistry majors in my year, the chemistry is mostly the same curriculum as Chemical Biology except for a few exceptions. Undergraduates share classes with graduates, essentially the same level as graduate classes. There are not many extra courses. Some of the teachers are god, but a lot of them don't care. The adviser for the program is not very helpful.
College Senior 2013-08-27T04:59:29Z
Between Hoboken and the surrounding cities (including NYC) possibilities are endless. There are a lot of options open late.
College Senior 2013-08-27T04:48:10Z
The housing office is a pain to deal with, and the housing options are okay. There isn't enough housing on campus to house all the students so Freshmen mostly take up all the housing on campus save for two or three building. Most upperclassmen live off campus through the student housing office. But the housing is very expensive. All on campus housing is required to have a meal plan. Off campus apartments are mostly very well kept and beautiful, but you live with local residents surrounding you and they often get annoyed by living by college students. The dorms on campus are okay. Only one building doesn't have Air Conditioning now.

Hoboken is a lovely town itself, and its big brother New York City compares to nothing else. Hoboken has a very good food scene, good shopping, and hold events regularly, especially in the summer. Campus often had trips into the city for shows and other things as well. No need for a car to do something fun, public transportation is perfect.

Health & Safety:
Never really felt unsafe at Stevens. The Police are very nice and will drive you home at night if you live off campus. Alerts are sent out about any problems. The Health Center can be annoying, the hours are pretty bad, and they aren't helpful when a doctor isn't in. But luckily they will refer you to a doctors office that is a block off campus and they are really good.
College Senior 2013-08-27T04:38:22Z
Stevens gives everyone their own laptop computer, either a Windows (HP) or a Mac depending on the major. They also give all engineers and science students all of the software they will need for their classes. There is a 4 year warranty on all computers, parts can be replaced as needed. The Help Desk can solve most software issues, but they do not always give you a temporary computer to work on while they are fixing problems. Wifi goes down on occasion but they work quickly to solve issues. Printing isn't free, but most classes use electronic submissions.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T16:24:48Z
Mechanical Engineering is nice, although it is Stevens largest program. While is well known and one of the nation's earliest Mechanical Engineering schools, this has the drawback of somewhat larger class sizes. BUT, Stevens is such a small community that this has yet to become a real issue.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T16:22:11Z
I have had one internship, which was a fantastic experience for me. I learned so much, and its given me real world experience I can put on an application. The pay was wonderful, I wish i could intern all the time! The time commitment was about 40 hours a week, a full time job basically. Responsibility is given to you as is felt appropriate, you are not overloaded or left to be bored. Stevens is excellent in internship placement as well as job placement.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T16:18:57Z
Getting into the program is fairly simple, so long as you keep a high standing in school and show that you are prepared to take on a rigorous program in college. Stevens is no walk in the park, but you will learn here. Entering a major is fairly simple at Stevens, and changing majors is not too difficult, as long as you haven't really started getting into more of their specialized courses.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T16:14:29Z
Honestly, the weather was very predictable and normal; the summers are hot, but not too hot, and the winters are cold but not too cold, and maybe just a tad on the windy side during the winter. However, what really caused an uproar was hurricane Sandy. This type of weather is unpredictable, but is still a factor and does cause problems.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T16:11:25Z
The dining hall at Stevens is nice due in part that it does its best to mix up the routine when possible while also offering a daily variety of foods to eat. While you won't find any filet minion here, the dining hall will keep you well fed and doesn't taste half bad either. Just be wary of the fish.
College Sophomore 2013-08-02T16:08:41Z
So long as you keep state and federal laws in mind, Stevens is fairly lenient and if there is an issue, they are normally willing to work with you to find a reasonable solution.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
