It's a demanding school. I have ADD and have found , through trial and error that I can manage getting involved in up to 2 campus organizations outside of classwork before my grades begin suffering as a result. It's not uncommon for people to attend 5 to 6 years before graduating with a bachelor's degree, because engineering school isn't easy. There's not much variety with regards to campus dining and dining is located in remote sections of the campus. Students receive university email notifications every so often, 1 or 2 a semester, of female students that are sexually molested on and sometimes off campus in the Rolla area. The professors in higher up degree related classes are great and truly care about students. The gen ed professors for classes like Chem, Calc, Physics, etc range between awesome and couldn't care less about you. It just depends on the instructor you get.
Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Missouri S&T thus far. There are many resources on campus that are available to assist in course work. I have taken advantage of the student success center, lead sessions, and PLC (physics learning center). These programs have had a tremendous impact on my academics. Missouri S&T also has great staff that is willing to help students in all ways possible. My teachers have always been available for one on one help with course work. There are also many organizations on campus, I believe that there is something for everyone at Missouri S&T.
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.
