Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Reviews
Love Rose-Hulman! If you're looking for a party school, this certainly isn't it. If you want somewhere you can get a great education from professors that care, then look no further. One of my math professors took the time to build our graphs in Minecraft so that we'd have a visual representation of what we were studying. He was so passionate about teaching that he went home at night and worked on that. All of the professors at Rose are very dedicated to helping students learn in and out of the classroom. Even with everything that's going on due to COVID, Rose is taking individual needs into consideration and is creating a much better environment that most the schools my friends go to. It's a great place to learn and a fun place to be in general. If you're going to attend Rose, definitely recommend living on campus. The on-campus atmosphere is like no other and you'll make more lifetime friends than you even thought possible.
For me, this school has done exactly what it says on the tin. Almost all of the critical reviews are complaining about aspects of the school that are very well reported. The gender ratio is skewed, tuition is high, some dorms don't have AC, and the classes are rigorous to the point where many will fail at some point. Some over-privileged rich kids come here expecting mom and dad to pay for straight A's and they all get a rude awakening when classes start. I love that. Most people who have a problem with this school are simply not into STEM or not self motivated. If you work hard and are serious about STEM, then you will flourish here. Thanks to this school I already feel like I have a serious competitive edge against other graduating engineers. I landed two dream internships while at Rose, and I'm sure I'll have no problem finding a well paying job this year even though there is a pandemic happening right now. Amazing school, amazing profs, amazing support at this school. 5/5.
A great school for engineering, and mathematics. This school provides a great place for talented students to work. With many challenges and many people/resources to help, Rose-Hulman is a dedicated to helping all of their students succeed. Overall, the campus setting is perfect for developing students, and the curriculum is updated every year in order keep up to date with the outside world. Lastly, Rose-Hulman prioritizes incorporating job experience into the student life in order to make their students top picks for businesses.
