What's better than a nice hot breakfast on a rainy morning? Easy. A free breakfast, served up by smiling faculty, deans, and other staff volunteers at NJIT's new student center. Leading the group of cheerful servers today was NJIT's president Robert A. Altenkirch, who was there at the start of the 8 a.m. traditional pancake breakfast, and still there when the last hungry student polished off the last free stack. No one was counting the students, but according to Dean of Students Jack Gentul, approximately 600 tasty hotcakes were consumed. The event was originally scheduled for the campus green. "I was picturing blazing sun, green grass, big white tent, but this worked," Gentul said. This year's freshman class numbers 740 students, of whom 84 percent were in the top half of the their high school graduating classes and 26 percent were in the top tenth (according to reporting for 504 of those students.) More than half of the entering freshman are in the Newark College of Engineering (395 or 53 percent.) The College of Computing Sciences has 138 freshman (19 percent); the New Jersey School of Architecture has 127 freshmen (17 percent); the College of Science and Liberal Arts has 51 freshman (7 percent); and the School of Management has 29 freshman (4 percent.) The most popular fields selected by enrolling freshmen are architecture, biomedical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, engineering (undeclared), information technology, and mechanical engineering. Nearly all the students are from New Jersey (698), with 18 hailing from New York, eight international students, five from Pennsylvania, four from Maryland, and one each from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Ohio, Virginia, Wisconsin, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. It was uncertain at NJIT Newsrooom's press time what percentage of the class likes pancakes.--Gale Scott >>
