Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming ClassEveryone at Stevens is excited to meet you and welcome you into the Stevens community! In order to make your four, or possibly five, years at Stevens the best they can possibly be, make sure to integrate yourself within the community and try new things! Freshman year is definitely a learning experience, so explore your interests and get involved with as many things on campus as possible!

MY BEST STUDY TIPUnderstand the difference between QUALITY studying VS. QUANTITY studying! It is imperative to take short breaks in-between difficult assignments or even when reviewing a great deal of information for an upcoming exam. By taking short breaks, you are able to take your mind off of your work and come back to it later feeling refreshed!

My Time Management Strategy: Use a calendar! Planning in advance is vital for success! Make sure to devote enough time to complete every assignment and start each project early. Rather than waiting until last minute, finish your work early so you can move on to future assignments!

Resources at Stevens I’ve Used: The Stevens Academic Support Center sponsors a variety of reviews for freshmen for upcoming quizzes and exams in various courses. These reviews are held a few nights in advance of the exam in order to provide additional insight into the course material. In addition, the ASC also provides tutors for undergraduate students. Free of charge, tutors are available for a variety of technical courses for freshmen and sophomore level technical courses. Fill out a “Tutor Request” Form on the ASC website and a tutor will be assigned to you!

What Do You Like Best About Stevens? Because Stevens is such a small, close-knit school, you really come to know a majority of the people on campus. Whether it is other freshman, upperclassmen, professors or members of the administration, you always feel like a part of Stevens. Also, because of the school’s proximity to New York City, there is always something to do!
