Don't go here.BrightChemical Engineering
Don't go here. They make the curriculum damn near impossible just so they can call it "rigorous". There is almost no such thing as a social life here, and people from Student Services, as well as the Co-op and Financial Aid offices are so unwilling to help you to the point where they avoid your calls and emails. The Co-op office didn't want to help me find a job because I was going to live at home and work. I wouldn't be able to pay for room and board if I lived on campus and worked. Clearly, they were not happy about me not paying the room and board. The school makes it a point to make sure you're miserable. I have never seen a larger group of unhappier people. Save your money, go elsewhere. Somewhere where you'll actually receive an education without relying on the curve and google for answers.

Question
This is not a good school.Quite BrightChemical Engineering
This is not a good school. I regret ever coming here. First of all nobody learns anything. Everyone gets by because there are huge curves or cheating the system by studying old tests. The professors are horrible and you have to teach yourself everything . I assumed it was like this at every university until I took summer classes at 3 different universities. I actually learned in those classrooms instead of wasting my time !

The school is super expensive for no reason. They have horrible freshman dorms. And slowly once you get on coop they take away your financial aid. Most people automatically get federal loans which they include in you're financial aid and work study. So you can think you're paying 15000 but you're actually paying 25000.

All the girls are conceited for no reason . The pretty ones arent usually though but nobody ever sees them because they have boyfriends or go to other schools. Most of them do not take care of themselves. There's only three sororities and the girls are not attractive. The parties are horrible but you don't know that until you goto another school and compare.

The students in this school never get to experience a real college experience because they don't even know what they're missing out on.

The school lies about all it's statistics. It's 88 in the country for engineering and try to find statistics that are not through Stevens that say it's a good school.

You get out of this school without experience, having learned and a lot of debt. Btw, I have a high gpa do I am not bitter for having failed or anything.

I just happen to be one of those smart normal peopleIt has a beautiful view and you will love it until you go to another college and see how bad it actually is. Of course, it's what you make of it. Good luck.
