Hey everyone! My name is Jayden Pereira and I am a junior Computer Engineering student. I’m from Woolwich Twp, NJ (20 minutes from Philly and Delaware). I do a lot of things on campus including being a Peer Leader, iSTEM, and being a part of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. Since coming into Stevens, I’ve seen this campus quite literally grow – here’s some of the newest things on campus to look out for!
Gateway Academic Buildings – Okay, I’m not going to understate how awesome the study areas are and just how nice these new academic buildings are. Whether you are there just for classes or just need a place to study, it’s arguably the nicest place on campus (unless there’s a view to NYC because I’m a sucker for the skyline). There’s tons of spaces like the super comfy chairs in Gateway South and the really cool recessed tables on the second floor of Gateway North.
Gateway Cafe – New small spot on campus to order food. If you’re around Babbio or Burchard and Red and Grey Cafe is too full, here’s a reminder that you don’t have to walk all the way to America’s Cup (ACup) or Colonel John’s (CJ’s). This new place is also really great for anyone living in River Terrace!
New Student Center – Formerly the Alexander House, it’s been fully renovated and is currently home to the Office of Student Affairs, the Office of Undergraduate Student Life, and the Office of Community Standards and Title IX. It also is home to a few Student Organizations like The Stute (our school newspaper) and the Student Government Association (SGA).
Student Housing and University Center Construction – Over the summer, there’s been some exciting progress towards the new construction for a 3 story university center and residential towers. Everything is on schedule for a Fall 2022 opening and the towers already are above the 12th floors! Workers have been completing the floor of each tower every 4-5 days which is super exciting to see and I can’t wait to utilize the state-of-the art university center when it’s all done!
