Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming Class: One important way to make your freshmen year successful is to balance your activities. You have to pay attention to your studies and classes, but it is also important to make new friends and find your place in the Stevens community!
MY BEST STUDY TIP: One way of studying that I have found to be successful is to study with others in your classes. When you study with others, you have numerous people you can ask for help if you have any questions. By working out problems that you have questions on with others, you learn from each other.
My Time Management Strategy: My personal time management strategy is to write down everything I have to get done with a due date. This is not limited to only schoolwork. I have a To-do list that includes homework assignments, essays, group projects, meetings, and practices or games. By putting due date next to each task, I can see when I need to start things and what the conflicts are so I know if I should get something done early.
Resources at Stevens I’ve Used: There are many resources at Stevens that are readily available to help students. The ones I’ve utilized the most is the Academic Support Center test reviews. Two days before a big math, chemistry, or physics test there is a general review sponsored by the Academic Support Center. An older student goes over the material that is likely to be on the test and students have the opportunity to ask questions. These reviews are helpful, and if students need any extra one-on-one help, there is the Walk-in Tutoring Center. This center is also run by the Academic Support Center. It is where students can go to get a tutoring session without any appointments needed.
What Do You Like Best About Stevens? I like Stevens because of the small community feel the university has. Walking around campus, you see people in your classes, people on your floor, people you know. It is easy to connect with everyone at Stevens. There are so many activities on campus that it is easy to find your niche, whether it be on a sports team, in a sorority or fraternity, or in one of the numerous clubs.
