Can't be beat as an engineering school if you live in Missouri. You'll be making the equivalent of 3 years tuition with engineers starting pay. It's in a red state, and the southern part of it as well, so unfortunately the campus is largely white males, but there is a spattering of other cultures, it has a decent Indian presence and many of the professors are middle eastern. It's a large party school if you're into that, especially around St. Pats. If you're more of a museum and indoor entertainment sort of person, the local area doesn't have much to offer. However if you enjoy nature, there are many awesome places to explore. The food is like, fine. Could be better but I'm grateful for what I'm given here. Dorms are expensive move off campus or into a greek house/CCF ASAP unless you want to try to be an RA.
