    I am an incoming freshman, living on campus and I have been treated like royalty from the minute I got accepted. My university has supported me from every direction.

    The upperclassmen have enthusiastically ushered me through campus meetings, tours and events. The faculty have provided a vision of the incredible future that inspires me.

    Lastly, the alumni have shared their diverse experiences and growth as a result of graduating from NJIT.

    I am proud to be an NJIT Highlander!
    Overall New jersey Institute of Technology is a great public University. As an upcoming 2020 graduate I can say that my experience at this school is a memorable one. Is it the best school no, but it is absolutely a school I am proud of attending. There are plenty of extracurricular activities for students to be involved in, and plenty of resources that allow students be successful inside and outside of the classroom. The new maker space is a great addition that allows for new cutting edge learning. The downsides are cafeteria food isn’t the greatest but that isn’t to big of an issue as there are plenty of food trucks and choices around. Also the location of the university. Newark isn’t the safest place, and I often would like to explore around campus but that is next to impossible in Newark.
