Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Reviews
This is THE best Engineering school. Professors are great and help students understand the material any time of day. The classes are the perfect size and their career services department went out of their way to help me land the perfect job. Though with the almost thousand companies coming to the campus during three job fairs it isn't really needed! I was welcomed by everyone and felt safe on campus. The food is now awesome thanks to locally sourced veggies and fruit, Some grown on campus. I love Rose-Hulman!
I enjoy the small campus environment; easy , short walk from Student Union to classes, dorms, indoor athletic center or administration building. I enjoy small class sizes and hands on approach to learning, as well as, a very academic environment, camaraderie, long standing school traditions and a strong alumni association. Rose concentrates on internship experiences and job placement. Some of the challenges are: The campus is located in Indiana(I live in NY), so going home on breaks is expensive and requires a bit of planning, although the food is good, I wish it were a little better(but all students say that?), also, not having a car on campus is limiting. All in all, I am enjoying my experience at Rose-Hulman.
Rose-Hulman is a very intense, high paced school and it isn't the college of choice for a lot of students. It takes a very tough, brave and driven student to succeed at Rose-Hulman. So many students go to Rose-Hulman believing they will breeze through the curriculum sort of like they did in high school or the student will try to balance all of their responsibilities on their own, which both are false hopes that lead to failing out or transferring schools. Rose-Hulman offers tremendous resources to allow students to succeed but it is a decision the student has to make-- to struggle alone or to struggle with the help of others.
