Florida Polytechnic University Reviews
I am a student at this University and I have to say that I am excited for the future of this college. Although there have been some rough patches with scheduling and hiring new faculty (which is to be expected with a brand new university),the entrepreneurial spirit is abundant here. I am only a junior at this University and I have already filed a University supported patent, won a University engineering competition, headed and shaped the Women in STEM Leadership program, started the SWE chapter, was a treasurer for the ASME chapter, spoken at University donor events, and know the University’s president personally among many other achievements. My point is that at this University the sky's the limit, the University staff are extremely supportive of student’s ambitions and, due to small class sizes, are able to provide help individually if needed. Here I can get a good quality education and gain leadership experience both of which are vital to my success as an engineer.
There are always University Police officers patrolling the area, which mostly they offer rides on golf carts to be nice to students and staff. There is also a Safety advisor who goes to every lab class and discusses risks involved with the lab and safety procedures. All in all they are good people to know on campus!
The workload is a little hard, but managing your time helps you tremendously. You can easily balance school with everything else. If you don't live on campus, the only places to study is the IST building or the Wellness Center. The IST can get very noisy (from people around and the motors from the roof) since it is mostly open space. It is annoying ot hear the roof motors start up every 20-30 min or so when you are studying. Study rooms helps lower the noise level and are great for groups of to 6 people, but they are usually occupied during the day by 1 or 2 per room. At night, the study rooms are better available, and the IST buiding can be accessed 24hrs by students with their ID cards.
