Stevens Institute to expand in Hoboken, 1500 more students!

Did you know that Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken is planning a 10-year expansion of the school that will have over 1,550 more students and faculty by the time it’s complete?

According to an article in the Wall St. Journal,

“The proposal includes a stronger focus on technology, hiring 100 professors and expanding undergraduate enrollment to 4,000 students from 2,550 currently. It is expected to cost at least $400 million to implement by 2022.” The plan also includes several new buildings to go up on the campus.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer ignored offered no comment to the surge in added traffic and congestion to the city, despite whining about the NJ Transit Development proposal downtown. Perhaps it depends on who you have in your pocket, and what you stand to lose.
