Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming Class: Take advantage of everything Stevens has to offer by getting involved on campus. This is a great way to meet new people, learn about job opportunities, and much more. However, do not overload yourself with activities; schoolwork should always come first. Focus on finding the balance between work and extracurricular activities. It will definitely make your time here at Stevens a lot more fun.

MY BEST STUDY TIP: When studying for a big test or an exam, get together with a group of classmates to go over the material. Do problems from old tests, quizzes, etc. on a white board in an empty classroom for extra practice. Chances are if you are having trouble with something, one of your classmates will be able to help you and vise versa.

My Time Management Strategy: Use a planner or a calendar to organize your schedule to ensure that you have enough time to study and do your homework. Record all meetings events, and activities as well as due dates and test dates for your classes. Remember that schoolwork should always come first, however don’t spend all of your time studying.

Resources at Stevens I’ve Used: Co-op Office, Academic Support Center, review sessions, professor’s office hours, and upperclassmen. Take advantage of empty classrooms around campus and the upper floors of the library to use as a quiet and alternative places to study. Get to know your faculty advisor and don’t hesitate to ask them any questions you have regarding your major, class schedule, etc.

It is a very close-knit and comfortable community, making the transition into college that much easier.
