Missouri S&T is an excellent school. It gets a lot of flack for being a tough school, but it's not only hard, but it's also a really good school with great programs. The professors, TA's and other administrators will help you succeed and help you pass. The coursework is hard, but every student is given all the tools necessary to succeed here. The campus is really nice too! Small and easy to navigate, the campus is both cool and charming.

I'm a first year at Missouri S&T and I absolutely love it. I've met so many cool people here and this school isn't completely full of socially awkward like so many people stereotype it to be. All of the faculty here really want you to succeed and there seem to be endless opportunities to help you academically and with a search for career opportunities. There are so many resources to help you succeed and get you on the right path. In addition to this, there are a lot of clubs and activities to get involved with, whether you want a career oriented club like a design team or a club just to have fun, like swing dancing or rock climbing.
MOST is a really good school. It gets a lot of flack for being a tough school, but it's not only hard, it's a really good school with great programs.
