I am now a junior at Embry-Riddle, studying Aerospace Engineering -Astronautics, and I could not have made a better decision. This school is one of a kind, with students and professors passionate about the aerospace industry. Professors are willing to sit down with you for 2 minutes or 2 hours to answer any questions you might have and explain the material better. Not only are professors approachable, but many have a PHD in their respective fields and have extensive career experience.
At Embry-Riddle you won't read out of a book and sit in a lecture hall for four years. You will learn by working directly with your professor and other students. Through projects like designing a MAV and mars rover from the ground up, building a huge rocket which you can actually test, machining and testing parts which you designed, and more.

If you're passionate about engineering, and want to learn alongside those who are too, Embry-Riddle is the perfect school for you.
I am Currently a Sophomore and Embry-Riddle and coming here to get my one of a kind bachelors degree in Global Security and Intelligence was the best decision I've made. The school is pretty big and there isn't a significant amount of students enrolled so its a relatively small school which is nice if you like it that way. The surrounding area is stunning all year round. The Staff and Professors here are extremely nice and are almost always available to help you because there is about 30 students in each classroom. This opens up more opportunities for one on one time with your teachers. There are a variety of different activities for students and staff to hang out and relax. Our student union has several entertainment choices ranging from video games, pool, and ping pong. Over 95% of our graduates are employed full-time within a year of their graduation from here. There is a bunch of positive things I can say about Embry-Riddle. This is a one of a kind type of school.
I'm just entering my Junior year in Aerospace Engineering - one of the largest degrees on campus. First arriving on campus, I came in as one of the brighter students at my high school, completing as many honors courses as I could back in high school. I wasn't a jock nor "popular kid" then, however I was a bit of a extroverted book-worm that enjoyed thoughtful discussion and academic rigor as compared to watching football or wondering who's dating who.

Coming to Embry-Riddle, I found I was no longer the "best of the best", nor the only person who deeply enjoyed discourse and wondering about cerebral matters. Instead, I found I was surrounded by fellow students who were the tops of their classes as well, and were, in some ways, isolated for being curious and eccentric about learning back then.

At Embry-Riddle, intellectual conversation is not only encouraged, but is fostered, not due to the faculty or staff directly, but by the passionate and dedicated students already present on campus. They were dedicated to understanding and exploring in every sense, and in fact a Global Security and Intelligence Studies major and an Aviation Sciences major may come together on a Friday night to go stargazing with their Space Physics roommate even.

At Embry-Riddle, the only limits we have are our imaginations. Others may say, "The sky's the limit", however at a school where we train the best pilots, aerospace engineers and future intelligence agents of the world, we see the sky as only a barrier to conquer. We're a huge family here, and I am proud to be an Embry-Riddle Eagle.
