For Up-Close Look at NJIT, Make Time To Attend Open House Tour

For an up-close look at life at NJIT, make time this fall and winter to attend an upcoming open house. The take-away will be more than a campus tour and meeting with an admissions counselor. You’ll learn about NJIT’s graduate and undergraduate programs in high-growth in-demand fields and meet one on one with faculty and admissions representatives. Prospective graduate students will hear more about graduate-certificate and online-learning options.

Visit the beautiful NJIT campus at a scheduled open house or for a Friday morning tour.

Upcoming open houses are now planned for undergraduate and graduate students. A graduate open house is planned now for Dec. 18, 2008 from 5-7:30 p.m. in room 100 of Fenster Hall on the NJIT campus.  A winter open house for undergraduate students is set for Sunday, Feb. 22, 2009, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. in the NJIT Campus Center. Free parking for both events will be available in the NJIT Parking Garage, Summit and Warren streets.     

Can’t make or wait for the open house times or dates? Then book today with NJIT Admissions (1-800-925-NJIT or 973-596-3300; Fax: 973-596-3461) a spot on the ever-popular Friday morning tour. Prospective students—alone or with their parents—arrive at 10:30 a.m. and meet in room 100, Fenster Hall (free parking available in the garage). The tour features NJIT's 48-acre newly-landscaped campus, including residence halls designed by top architects like Michael Graves.             

Guides will also take you to the open-air roof garden atop NJIT’s new Campus Center (designed by the notable international architects Gwathmey Siegel & Associates), home to student offices and lounges, game rooms and bookstore and the glamorous Atrium Lounge. 

Not to be missed either will be other Campus Center amenities including a six-lane bowling alley.  Learn more about NJIT’s wide-range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The choices are always evolving, with cutting-edge specialties for study such as optical communications and Internet security. 

Tours offer a wonderful opportunity to meet current students, faculty, and staff in research labs, over coffee in the Center’s coffee house or residence halls. A tour is also a perfect opportunity to ask necessary questions about financial aid information. To learn more details about financial aid at NJIT, click here

A great way to get a feel for this campus is to block off not just a few hours, but an entire day and coordinate your tour with a campus event.  Plan to stay through dinner and catch an NCAA Division I soccer game.  This winter, see our NCAA Division I men or women’s basketball team play.  For schedules and more about athletics, please click here.

As for dinner stick around campus to sample the delicious fare of NJIT’s award-winning executive chef Peter Fischbach.  Fischbach took top honors this past August at the Great American Seafood Cookoff, in Louisiana. As executive chef and director of food service for Gourmet Dining Services at NJIT, Fischbach is in charge of all aspects of food service.

If you’re the type that wants a taste of academics in action, ask about viewing demonstrations like the hydraulics lab in the department of civil and environmental engineering, or the design lab, in the New Jersey School of Architecture. Do ask, too, about one of the most exciting new laboratories on campus. The Vincent A. Stabile Laboratory, is a robotics laboratory featuring 10 experimental stations, which give students “hands-on” training in solving practical problems using robotics for today’s automated manufacturing.
