Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming Class: Get involved! From day one at Stevens, get involved with your peers, the different communities and clubs at Stevens, and your coursework. Stevens rewards those who are dedicated so go out and find what you love and embrace it.

MY BEST STUDY TIP: Studying is a very personal activity; it is different for each individual so you need to find what works for you. Use all of the resources from previous years when completing your studying, especially for chemistry because Dr. Jones is known for using similar type questions on his exams year to year. Stay on top of your reading for you CAL classes and always get to the reviews for math and chemistry!

My Time Management Strategy: I have a calendar in my room where I write down everything I have going on so I can plan out my days. Having a game plan is important once you get into the heart of the semester because it is easy to fall behind when there is so much going between school and extracurricular activities.

Resources at Stevens I’ve Used: Personally, I am a big fan of studying in the library. It is an ideal place to studying in a group or to work on your own. I have used the walk-in tutoring center and it is very helpful if you need help with some of your course material. I highly recommend going to the review sessions prior to the math, chemistry and physics exams.

What Do You Like Best About Stevens? I like that Stevens opens doors that you did not even know existed. I am continuously surprised by how much Stevens has pushed me to work harder and broaden my horizons to find new challenges. Stevens itself perfectly combines a campus feel with a city atmosphere surroundings; it gives you the best of both worlds.
