If you're serious about learning engineering/piloting, this is the place for you.

School-wise, a very strong institution. The classes are challenging and demand a lot of hard work in order to excel but they are definitely worthwhile. The professors are very knowledgeable and easy to approach, which is always helpful. Classes are small and classrooms are up to date to make the learning experience as good as possible.

Aside from the academic portion of college, this place is pretty dry. Not a whole lot to do in terms of nightlife and most people that go here aren't really into that stuff. The town isn't the nicest place on earth but the speedway being next door is definitely a plus.

This place doesn't have very strong school spirit, which is something I really miss coming from a very spirited high school. Keep that in mind because the weekends can get a little boring and monotonous with so little to do outside of the classroom.
After touring Embry-Riddle i have found that the college is very expensive and it has a well maintained campus with great security. Embry-Riddle has many resources that are available to students. These resources vary to cessna 172 skyhawks with G-1000 built into them and a pressure room that decompress the air around you. With all of the technology provided to these students, theres no wonder the tuition is super expensive. Even though that the tution is very unbelievable, the careers that Embry-Riddle creates help benefit the human race in a major way and me myself want to attend this college so that i can become a commercial pilot.
Whether you are there for Engineering, Aviation, or any other degree of the many degree programs they offer, you will not be disappointed with the outcome. Those who leave the school successfully will have a very good outlook on life. The surrounding area is full of fun attractions, and doing them with friends makes it much more exciting. The party scene on campus is lacking given that most of the degree programs are for top-notch jobs; people are mostly studying, therefore leading to a lack in festivities. The classes offered by the university are of very high quality, and the professors are full of knowledge. It's nothing like MIT, but you certainly get what you pay for.
If there's one thought that I could leave, it's that I've had the time of my life at the ERAU. Because of my family's financial hardships, I am at risk of not being able to attend ERAU next year; however, I would give almost anything to keep going there. Not only because I need it, but because I love it.
