What I love most about NJIT:

I love pretty much everything about NJIT! One thing in particular is the fact that students here tend to be academically hardworking and determined; it's an environment that fuels all students to do well, and I believe this is a quality of NJIT that is often overlooked. Also, there are many opportunities to get involved on campus, and they are not that hard to find if you are willing to look for them.

My advice to you as a first year student:

One of the most important things that I learned my first year is that you shouldn't be afraid to ask other people for advice, especially upperclassmen. Most people here are willing and eager to help you out, and it's a good way to make connections—many of which may even turn into long-lasting friendships. If you are too shy to find people, you can always visit a tutoring center for help, or you can just stop by and meet one of us! We've all been freshmen before, so we understand what you are going through, and we would be more than happy to meet and talk to you.
