The greatest complaint towards Stevens Institute of Technology is the cost of education. If you look at the tution costs it is right where the IVY leagues are but in terms of recognition and prestige nowhere close to any of them.

The good points about stevens- Co-Op programs which are very work oreinted and not just pure theroy knowledge.

Campus life is really dull and bad with students tend to form close minded groups- intellectuality is missing- mostly so because it is a technical institute so most of the world revolves around course work- very less stress given on other factors such as politics, discussions, arts etc.

Work load is extremely challenging more so because of the poor faculty quaility which stresses more on completing the course within a specific time frame rather than concentrating on making sure the materials are relevant or being absorbed by the students.

Extra curricular activity wise, stevens would be in the bottom most of the pit!! Only frat houses serve some kind of outing however if you are not the FRAT (collective) mentatlity type of person or wants to join some interesting intellectual groups- stay as far away as possible for stevens.

Overall Stevens is a good collage for vocational oriented (job oriented)/ minded individuals who see collage as a door to get inside the corporate or white colalred world. However, if you are looking for a diverse, stimulating and enriching experience from your collage life, stevens is not the ideal place for you.
