The location is amazing. The school sits right on the Hudson River facing New York City. It's beautiful and there are so many opportunities for all kinds of people and careers. The school has a co-op program where about 99% of students are offered a job before graduation. People attend college in the effort to get a good job that pays well and is fitted to a students major, and Stevens is the best place to be in order to set up a student for that kind of success. The students work very closely with professors and create a strong relationship, and this helps with the student's success also. The dynamic at the school is very positive and I really enjoy the atmosphere that the exists at Stevens.
The cost is quite a challenge. Given Steven's location and the fact that it is a private college, it's extremely expensive. I'm paying about $60,000 dollars a year to attend this University. It's worth the money, but it's extremely difficult to keep up with because the cost is so high. The education is fantastic, but paying for it is really tough.
Yes, This school is beautiful and there is so much opportunity. We are in the center of a prosperous area and New York is only 20 minutes away. It's the perfect place to strive for success and Stevens works hard to make sure it's students reach that success. I have a great relationship with my professors and there are so many different kinds of opportunities for job placement. There are so many choices and I feel like the world is my oyster here. The campus is beautiful and the close proximity to the city is something I'm so thankful to have.
