"Stevens was certainly stressful, but the degree program was strategic and the co-op program set me up for success after graduation. The Biomedical Engineering professors were very good lecturers and mentors. They were willing to help and nurture students learning."

"Stevens has major fundamental problems with all of its administrative backing. There are so many people that work in the Howe (University) Center, but it seems no one ever actually does any work. It takes days and multiple emails to ever get a response, and half of the time the responses are unhelpful or confusing. They charge a premium price for average (at best) education. I worked as a TA for the undergraduate Biology courses, and almost all of the techniques they teach in the lab are outdated and obsolete--none of the technology, at the technology school, is up to date. I offered to help update some of these techniques, but the professors were hard to work with, old fashioned, and refused to do "extra work" in their break periods (summer and J-term) because it was their "time off". Furthermore, Stevens has a tendency for having outrageous charges on things that do not benefit the students. The "Student Fees" that they charge graduate students are very high, and the programs they offer aren't convenient for a working schedule or fun for students in their 20's and 30's--not to mention that the fees have gotten more and more expensive per semester I've been here, but the programs are always the same. They also charge a graduation fee, which is $260, in which they hold your finished degree hostage, until you pay. In my experience, they have trouble explaining what these fees are used for, and for a school that charges so much for tuition, I would expect more return."

"College is small and community-style. Hands on attention from professors. Social life is small but living in Hoboken makes socializing fun. Academics are rigorous but rewarding. Career services are exceptional."

"Very good curriculum and the campus is awesome. Everything is close by, including all the places you'll want to in the area. They make it real easy to find a job after you graduate, especially if you have a 3.0 or higher (if you have above a 3.5 your golden). Unfortunately there isn't much do in hoboken until your 21 so most of your time will be spent on campus and joinging a fraternity is the only real way to consistently find things to do. Besides being expensive, the biggest downside is that some of the teachers do not speak the best english and you'll have to do alot of learning on your own (this problem is only for a few of the intermediate courses, the easy courses, harder courses, and masters courses usually have better teachers). I enjoyed my time there but its definatley worth checking out ther schools as well to see if Stevens isa good fit for you."

"The college is extremely challenging, which isn't a a bad thing. The coordination of the registar was not very good. I had to fight with them every semester for some reason or another. But the career outcome for graduates is fantastic, one of the top ten in the country."

"I received a degree in Business and Technology and do not regret going to Stevens Institute of Technology at all. The degree and classes were great and opened up a ton of connections for me within the NJ/NYC area. This is known as a top engineering school in the area but the business program has been gaining steam too. Many NYC banks will specifically hire out of this program and all of the professors that taught me had previously worked in a management role at businesses in the area. The education really prepares you with plenty of presentations and if you work towards it the career development office will help you out. Unless you are going to be receiving additional scholarships or aid to bring the cost of tuition down, stay away though!! The huge debt part is overwhelming upon graduation. Go to community college and transfer in or get a degree at a state school. If you have almost a full ride here and can take out minimal student loans, definitely come to Stevens then. But it is not a cheap school at all. Remember that $60,000 of debt equals a ~$600 monthly payment upon graduation. Compare that to your starting salary and monthly take home and you may have to live like a college student upon graduation."
