Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming Class: Get involved on campus! Now is the time to try something new and it's a great way to meet new people. Don't be afraid to talk to your professors/faculty, they love it when students ask questions and show interest in the course.

MY BEST STUDY TIP: When studying for a test or a quiz, write everything you need to know on a new sheet(s) of paper. Writing the material over will help you remember it and it's helpful to have everything condensed so you don't get distracted by information that will not be tested.

 My Time Management Strategy: Treat your schoolwork like a job, this means work 9am-5pm. (I put in a little overtime too!)

Resources at Stevens I’ve Used: Academic Advisor, Academic Support Center (ASC) Walk-In Tutoring Center, ASC Exam Reviews, ASC Individual Tutoring

What Do You Like Best About Stevens? I love how Stevens is a small university in a big city. The small class sizes allow you to form personal relationships with the faculty. However, Hoboken and NYC provide an endless source of entertainment and enjoyment.
