Stevens Institute of Technology Reviews
Stevens is a great school on the Hudson River in Hoboken, NJ. Although known for engineering, Stevens has an excellent Business School and a variety of other fields of Study. Overall, a great school, and return on investment is upstanding.
Stevens is an amazing campus, it is my dream college! There is nothing to dislike about the school, everyone is very friendly. Besides the competitive students to have the best of the best of their education is is an amazing school to attend and to graduate from.
Stevens as a whole is not necessarily a bad choice for college. It is expensive yet has a high return on investment and essentially a guaranteed job after college. Opportunities are there where you seek them. However, conducive classroom environments are lacking, despite the beautiful appearance of the campus. A lot of the time I feel as though the way things are taught could be done way more efficiently. They try to make students excel, but some classes really do fall short.
My experience with Stevens is amazing. All the professors and facilities are great. The campus is the right size for me to fit in the community. As an engineering major, there is a lot of work, but it is worth it.
Stevens is more of a workforce training experience than a college experience. If you're eager to take classes designed to lower your GPA so they have an excuse to take away your scholarship money, Stevens is the right school for you. They have a fantastic "return on investment" because they make sure you won't take any fun or interesting classes and everything they ever teach your is geared toward getting a job that'll make your hate your life. On the bright side they teach you how to deal with hating your life from an early age. Socially, the school is dead. Unless you're willing to deal with the extensive red tape and secrets of the fraternities in order to have some semblance of a social life with the other people who think they're smarter than everyone else because they managed to join a clique, you'll be stuck in your prison cell of a dorm. After my experience I'd advise anyone considering this school to go somewhere else.
Classes are definitely difficult. But the career center is fantastic, and I'm looking forward to graduating in 2 years.
You definitely get what you pay for. The school aims to get you well educated and career ready. It has Greek life but the focus remains on pushing you to do your best.
I've had an amazing experience at Stevens. I've enjoyed the small school environment tremendously. I know a lot of other students around campus, which makes it nice to walk to to classes with other people. The classes are intense; I spent a lot of my time studying. But I know it's worth it because Stevens is very career-oriented, and I know I'm almost guaranteed a job after college because of my preparation.
Fantastic school with fantastic views. Getting a top-notch education! My major is finance and I was lucky to get an internship as a Freshman....it will really help my resume as I gained first hand experience working in the business departments of a major medical center.
Stevens has a very academic-focused nature but still provides opportunities for students to express themselves through clubs.
I was able to get an internship my first year here because of all of the preparation Stevens gave me in terms of resume reviews, practice interviews, and technical questions. Food stinks, dorms are dorms, education is great, Hoboken is amazing, and the campus is beautiful
Overall, the classes & academics at Stevens are great, however the housing and student life are absolutely absurd. It is not worth the time and money spent to have an experience that is far below other campuses. Please try to commute or do not go through SLH if possible (even though that will hinder your ability to be active on campus, but at that point its better than spending the amount of money you would spend). Additionally, the school is absolutely horrible with housing for studying abroad. There are no real options for when you return, so yet again better off going through your own resources and not through stevens.
Stevens Institue of Technology is really a College that is constantly striving for improvement in every sector. New things are constantly happening and building. The atmosphere among the students in fantastic and everyone is involved in some way. Finding friends is simple, even for people who don't like to put themselves out there. The party life is as good as it gets. Academics is difficult, you always have to work hard for the grade you want, but there are so many tools the school provides you to help. The administration is somewhat disorganized and that is the biggest improvement that could be made about the school.
Offers strong academics and great professors. The co-op program is a great way to gain experience. The campus is beautiful and Hoboken is very fun. Close proximity to New York City is good for internship and co-ops opportunities. Stevens students are welcoming and kind.
The part I love most about Stevens is the community. It is a fairly small college, so you tend to see the same faces everyday. The classes may be difficult, but there is always someone there to help. There are countless free review sessions and tutoring opportunities, primarily run by other students. The school itself also offers various extracurricular activities that can be purely social, academic, or a mix of both. The classes can be challenging, but I think Stevens courses are extremely well designed for preparing you for real world engineering. Stevens also has a fantastic career center since it is a co-op school. The only downside about Stevens is that the financial aide department is not very helpful or generous, which can be detrimental considering the high cost of tuition. Despite that, I would still highly recommend Stevens considering its financial aide office is not the only source you would have when it comes to needing financial assistance.
Great campus/area but ultimately academics matters the most. Most professors can't speak proper english and some even repeat material in different classes. Business students suffer the most because most recruiters want students with tech backgrounds. Business and Technology students get better jobs than Quantitative Finance students even though the workload is SIGNIFICANTLY different. This school is overrated.
It is a great school located in an awesome city with one of the greatest views of any campus in the country. Although it is known for engineering, the business school recently reported that 100% of its graduating students either received a full time job or decided to pursue a masters degree. Stevens also has a great athletics program. One drawback is that the school employs people who were very successful in real world jobs as their professors, but sometimes they have difficulty teaching and connecting with the students.
I love the campus and campus location. Stevens is close to NYC and Hoboken has lots of great eating places. The staff and students are all there make everyone feel welcome. There is help for academics, joining the many clubs, finding your way around and help learning the system at Stevens. The professors are available and willing to help. Students just need to approach the professors. The staff is friendly and is always available. The campus feels safe and the Stevens police are always there looking out for the safety of students. The engineering classes are difficult, but the are plenty of study groups. You have to work hard, but it is worth it.
Very helpful when you need them. Because of the small class sizes they can really help you on a personal level.
Graduates from Stevens do amazing things and they make the highest salaries in the nation.
