Best school in the United States! I fell in love with this school the second I got in. All the students and staff are brilliant and very polite, the classes are excellent with amazing student-teacher one on one. The campus is really nice as well as the dorms, the dorm neighbors are always polite and everyone is respectful. The level of the academics is outstanding and all teachers always make you do your best. Very international student friendly, national students treat us kindly and with great respect. Teachers pay close attention to all their students and help them out in every way possible. The campus is very safe and the studying environment is outstanding.

College is an important decision. If you want to belong with fellow nerds and geeks who are always the underdogs, come aboard and hangout with fellow students and just ignore campus politics. If you are a starry eyed dreamer who wants to make a difference on campus while getting the best degree out there, I would seriously ask you to reconsider us. We have a lot of flaws and our acceptance rate is a reflection of that. Look around and if you're cool with rolling with our status quo for four years then putting this chapter behind you, join us here.

We have a ton of bureaucratic issues with campus administration, and none of them really care about fixing them for us, so just be prepared to buckle up and focus only on classes if you're here otherwise you'll just get angry and grouchy.

Also Wifi is terrible, and we "can't" fix it according to our non-engineering administration.

Peace and good luck choosing!
ERAU-Prescott is known as a piloting school, but in recent years has fixated on STEM education; particularly aerospace engineering. Their engineering programs rival those of MIT, Georgia Tech, and CalPoly, boasting a blend of a traditional 4 year degree with a trade school environment. Students learn in small classroom settings (1:20) that cater to kinesthetic learners, some of whom have ADD, ADHD, or fall on the Autism spectrum. Freshmen are given invaluable opportunities building robots, satellites, and rockets in their first semester attending, and with the rigorous course load, offers students a 99% job place rate within one year after graduation. While ERAU has extensive educational prospects, this University is not for everyone. Students struggle feeling connected to the town, which is a retirement community. Even so, many ERAU employees are working with the city to build community bridges and bring more engineering businesses to Prescott for internship and job opportunities.
