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.
Review Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Daytona Beach
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.
