Review Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Daytona Beach
Student culture is hit or miss depending on how willing you are to deal with some people not understanding quite how to interact with you the first time (engineers tend to be socially awkward). Touch n' go productions, while they do have an inflated budget from the SGA, puts on very good comedy shows, movies, and other various entertainment shows (the hypnotist being my personal favorite). The classes are rigorous, and if you are thinking of pursuing a degree in aeronautics or aeronautical engineering, it is a very good place to be. The residence halls are small and over-filled but they have a very good community. Sodexo is devastating to the digestive system, no two ways about it. Daytona is scary after dark, not a place to go alone, and the clubs are a great place to go if you have a death wish or desire to be kidnapped and sold.
Embry-Riddle offers a very high quality education with state of the art labs, equipment, simulators, aircraft, and facilities. That being the case, the trade-off for this esteemed education is the social environment. There is often plenty of work assigned for the weekends and the weekly routine of many students is exhausting. Expect to meet many tired students who are trying to get this all behind them to earn their prestigious degrees.
As a first year student I was able to experience the life of a freshman, such as adapting to the campus, living in prison looking dorms (although the other residence halls look better than the one I resided in), getting to meet new people and attending class. As for organizations, there are many clubs to try and test out. I've never been to any of the athletic games, but they seem to do pretty well. Academics is very respected at this university. They make sure every student has the opportunity to have the help they need for academics. As for the professors, it depends on who your professor is; either they don't give a crap about your grades and helping you or they really care a lot and they try to do their very best to help you. I lived in the Doolittle Hall and people often compared it to a mini prison due to the white walls and limited windows. I made some pretty good memories there. The campus is quite intricate, for they're constantly updating on technology and also buildings.
