Bernadette Moke, a junior at NJIT, sits on the roof in the sun, reading a book and drinking in the sunlight. She is not alone in soaking up as much sun as she can on this roof-top terrace. Just beside her, in the center of the roof, lay 160 solar panels, some of which automatically follow the path of the sun. The panels provide power for the Campus Center, and save the university nearly $30,000 a year in electric bills. >>
The façade of the East Building was transformed into a hospital. And the campus pub turned into a cafeteria.  “The Sopranos” visited the NJIT campus last week--not to brush up on their engineering, but to film a few scenes for a spring 2006 episode. Actors and camera technicians from the award-winning HBO television series spent the entire day on the campus, setting up and filming scenes of the Soprano family visiting the mock NJIT set. >>
