The academics are outstanding. I learn more each week than I ever learned in my high school career. The hands-on aspects of labs makes each class fun! Every day is an adventure! And I have already made lifelong friends, and everyone I meet is open to meeting people.

The Rose-Hulman community is one of the best things offered at the school. Everyone has the same mindset to succeed. The professors are there to help. There is no pressure or dog-eat-dog environment. The curriculum is hard, but it makes for the most successful engineers and scientists.
The professors here at Rose show that they aren't worried about research, just teaching students and making sure they understand the material. Each professor does have their own style of teaching, so going from quarter to quarter will be different every time. For the most part, there are quite a few different courses offered in the humanities, but the intended category of engineering you go for means you usually take the classes that are needed that aren't humanities. Since the seniors do get first pick of classes, the freshmen get the worst pick of humanities classes. Class sizes do have a wide range, some being as low as 5-10 people all the way to 30.
