    Overall I learned valuable lessons at NJIT, most of their courses are well taught and the professors are always available to help dedicated students. However, life on campus was very displeasing. Students had very little school spirit and hardly anyone participated in events hosted by the school. There is a ton of construction on campus and housing is very expensive for the amount of things wrong with the buildings. Water mains have broken leaving buildings without water, cockroaches and rats were found in dining halls and residence halls, and many things were broken by students in which you have to pay. There is not much to do around campus in Newark, and the food quality was horrible. I now have gastritis and gastroparesis and I fully attribute it to NJIT's poor nutrition and environment.
