"Stevens is led by administrators who do a great job advertising and promising things- and then continually fail to deliver anything meaningful for their students, especially for the price point they charge. Each additional round of tuition, the prices rise and the curtain is pulled back farther as Stevens trims the "fat," oft the most vital services a university can offer like funding for clubs, extracurricular coursework, career services, greek organizations, and more. What remains is a soulless vehicle of an institution, recruiting at an unsustainable pace until its own students are unable to find housing, dealing with lazy and arrogant professors, and constantly told "no" in pursuit of their interests. The only thing this university truly has going for it is its location, but it's reputation has clearly ballooned and was much better about 10 years ago. Now, they build shiny new buildings yet still never have enough classroom space, welcome thousands of graduate students to the NY Metro area with no hope for housing or financial aid, and slap a retrospective apologetic email blast on every increasingly frequent misstep they make. If I could go back in time I would go anywhere else for college. This place truly broke my spirit."

"My experience at this school was absolutely terrible. From the moment I stepped through the door of the admissions office, I was met with a hostile attitude and a complete lack of professionalism. The staff were rude and unhelpful and often gave me the runaround when I asked for information. The office workers seemed to be disorganized and uninterested in helping students. The academics at this school were also subpar. The classes were a joke, and the teachers had limited resources, which made it difficult for them to provide meaningful instruction. Not to mention, the curriculum was outdated and lacked relevant information. Additionally, the school had a poor record of preparing students for career success. Overall, I would not recommend this school to anybody. The admissions staff were unhelpful, and the academics were subpar. I would advise potential students to look elsewhere for a better educational experience."

"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."

"One of the best decision I made was to attend Stevens. Great professors who ask you to think outside the box. College provided laptop so you can allows be on the move. Great view of Manhattan and the train is a 15 mins walk from the campus, making it easy to go into Manhattan."

"Stevens is located in Hoboken, which is a great location right near New York City. It offers a wide range of engineering subjects, and the small school size allows for smaller class sizes."

"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."
