Overall

Overall Missouri University of Science & Technology is an amazing school. Your academic limits are pushed more than you can imagine. There are many sources for you to receive help with your classes, not only from your teachers. Although it is a little more pricey, you get your moneys worth in the end. Career fairs are put on for you to find your dream job. The career fairs are averaging over 250 companies attending each semester. My most favorite part about S&T is their Greek Life, because it is like no other campuses. The Greek Life participates and fulfills your athletics thrive, but also every brother is willing to help you through your colleges days with academics and their brotherhood.

Academics

The classes vary from degree to degree, but you will be challenged in some way, shape, or form. Each class has their own varying time commitment and you are guaranteed to learn something new everyday. Since most of these classes are engineering based, they are designed to enhance your abilities to become the best you can be. My personable favorite are the labs you are involved in. They design them for real world problems and make you use everything you have been taught throughout your schooling career.

College Life

Social life is based on how involved you would like to be. There are hundred of clubs and organizations you can be apart of such as Greek Life. Every person you get involved has something to offer you and I believe that has made life here a lot easier. The offerings consist of anything from help with your academics all the way to having a lifting buddy at the gym. Our athletics might not be as advanced as a D-1 college, but there are still opportunities for you to be able to live your dream of playing a college varsity sport. Weekends are defiantly the best time for you to relax and hang out with friends. There is always something going on for you to attend and be apart of. The safety aspect for this campus is higher than normal campuses since it is smaller and everyone is more worried about class rather than engaging in unsafe activities.

I love S&T. I was nervous to come here because of the reputation it had as being a difficult school, but the challenge is nice. I have met some really nice people and all of the professors I have had so far have been more than willing to help, you just have to ask.

Academics

Classes are difficult, but I know they will help me in the future. I have learned a lot, and I haven't even been here that long. The professors are kind and easy to work with. Class sizes are very reasonable and I am excited to continue my education here.

College Life

S&T does have a reputation for being a school with a lot of drinking that occurs. It isn't the only thing to do, though. I love that we are so close to the Mark Twain National Forest because I can go out and hang up a hammock on the weekends and get away. I never worry about safety here.

Overall, MS&T is a pretty good school. I like how small it is and the fact that the professors get to know you by name. I also like that there are so many PHD's on campus who have been teaching for most of their careers. They are very knowledgeable and although the course work may be rigorous, the things we learn really stick with us. Every year there is an event called Puppies at the Puck. the local animal shelter brings its dogs and lets the college students play with them for donation made to the shelter. Its a great stress relief as well as a good cause. MS&T is also known for St. Pats. After attending for a year and a half, I have realized just how big of a deal it really is and all the fun events the school puts on that DON'T have to do with drinking. I would encourage to student to check out MS&T if they are interested in science, math, or engineering. The education you get at my school is top notch and looks good to future employers.

Academics

Our classes are pretty small in size like our school and the work is considered more difficult that many other institutions. There are still many varieties of electives to choose from, however most majors don't leave much room for free electives. Most of my instructors have been T.A.s so as far as how the actual professors are, I haven't had much experience with them but if I needed help I know I could find someone that would be willing to help me.

College Life

Although there is not a huge amount of Greek Life on Campus, our housing, in my opinion, is one of its own! Every different living area has its own recreation area and the people that live in close proximity are very close. Campus safety is awesome! I have never once felt in danger or threatened while going to MS&T. The athletics events are always a fun time as well as everyone's opportunity to be involved in intramurals no matter who you are!

Overall

The school being located in smaller city is a plus, less distractions. Its location is also centrally located geographically, making it convenient to a vast majority of the population. There is a regional airport, but not a national or international one, this being one of the only real drawbacks.

Academics

They are definitely about academics. If one is looking for a school where they can focus this would be it. Class size is average, while the workload is determined by ones degree and the number of classes they take.

College Life

There is an abundance of outdoor activities both locally and within a weekends drivable distance. Then there is St.Louis which is within visiting distance. The school has a good sports program which it is proud of. There are also many extra curricular activities and organizations to take part in.

Overall

Missouri University of Science and Technology is an excellent school. What I like most about this school is the atmosphere that it has. Everyone including the professors and administrators will help you in any way that they can. That is a really good feeling especially for incoming freshmen like I was this past semester. Although the course work is really difficult, there are a lot of places that students can go to get some help. One thing that is especially helpful is getting connected to an organization that has files of previous tests so that you can get a feel for the type of questions to expect on the test you have to take. Another thing to remember is that the career center will help students write their resume, do practice interviews, have a free suit closet, and will help you with anything that is involved with finding and securing a job, internship, or co-op.

Academics

The biggest class size is about 300 students and those are only the general education classes that all incoming freshman have to take. Once a student gets to their sophomore year class size shrinks substantially. It has been my experience so far that all of the professors really care about what they are teaching about and, while some are better than others, they do the best they can to help the students understand their material and are easy to talk to. One of the best and worst things about Missouri University of Science and Technology is the workload and difficulty of the classes. The classes are really difficult and depending upon the class there is a really big work load as well. This is a really good thing when it comes to preparing a student for the real world, but it is pretty stressful and a lot of work. Because of the difficulty of the course work, it is really easy to get a good job after graduation which makes the academic programs excellent.

College Life

There are a lot of organizations to get involved in. The best organizations to get involved in are design teams because they give students practical experience in their fields which is looks really good on a resume. The campus is pretty small and creates a social atmosphere where you at least know one person no matter where you are on campus. I have never had any problems with safety or heard of any safety problems from anybody else. There are also plenty of parties and other activities to attend over the weekend and throughout the week.

Overall

I love Missouri S&T. It wasn't on my list of colleges but once I visited I fell in love with the campus. I have been at Missouri S&T for a semester and I am very happy that I picked this college. I am from a small town and the reason I love the campus is because I get the small town, everybody knows everybody feeling.

Academics

I love all my classes, the size was small so it made it easier to ask questions and feel comfortable in the room. My professors were very good, they explained everything in full detail and my my first semester experience wonderful. They all did what they could to get to know their students.

College Life

The campus is always offering cool activities like movies and concerts, there are so many clubs that I could be involved in. I always feel safe on the campus, I always see the campus police. I am not in any sports this semester but I plan on joining after hearing of how much fun other people have had. Weekend activities are usually limited to save money. I try my best to save my money and spend it wisely.

Overall

Missouri University of Science and Technology (S&T) is a great school, especially for students interested in engineering. There are many different areas of engineering to study, plus majors in sciences and other areas such as psychology, business, economics, history, and English. The education earned here, especially in engineering, is a great value and high quality. A degree from S&T is well-respected in the Midwest engineering firms. Each semester there is a career fair that is well-attended by companies in the engineering industry, and the employment rates of S&T graduates is very high. Student design groups, internships, and co-ops opportunities are very common and are a great way to apply the engineering you learn in class to real world issues. I have several friends who have become involved with undergraduate research, too. The focus on engineering and science can be overwhelming at times, especially for those in non-engineering majors. But there are many student organizations and events to participate in along with minors in areas such as foreign languages, arts, philosophy, and global studies to help balance all that science and math. My most memorable experiences have been living in Thomas Jefferson hall my first three semester, the organization Engineers Without Borders, and my semester studying abroad in France. I have made great friends through these experiences. My tip for prospective students is to get involved right away with a student organization or two, and ask questions if you need help in classes. There are many people here to help you.

Academics

First-year engineering students take all the same classes as one another, and most of the classes taken second year are common as well. Second year and on you begin taking classes more classes in your major. I really like this approach because it gives all the engineering students a common background to build on. Some classes are very challenging, this school is pretty rigorous, but all classes have study or help sessions often called LEAD sessions. Since all the engineering students take the same classes the first two years, there are also many students around to help you. This also makes some of the class sizes very large, since so many people take this common classes. The classes with large sizes meet in a lecture hall 2 or 3 times a week, but break into smaller groups during recitation. This gives a good mix between lectures and instruction in a smaller class size. During recitation the instructor usually reviews the material, answers homework questions, and gives quizzes to test understanding. I've had some absolutely wonderful teachers here. I have also had a few poor ones, but many more good ones! The workload for someone of these classes can be a lot, often homework after each lecture. My advice is to go to the LEAD sessions whenever possible. Then that time is set aside for only homework, and if you get stuck on a problem you can ask a neighbor or the teacher and upperclassmen in the room.

College Life

There are many clubs and organizations on campus, and many that are NOT about science and math. There are clubs about different cultures, psychology, LGBT, leadership, and those are just the first few I though of. There are also several design teams such as Solar House, Human Powered Vehicle, Mars Rover, and Concrete Canoe just to mention a few. Student Council and the Student Union Board plan lots of fun activities, nearly every night of the week there is a movie, comedian, poet, or singer performing. The theatre on campus also gets some great shows to come, and many times the first 75 students can get free tickets. I've seen two Shakespeare plays, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, and the musical Dreamgirls this way. The past football season was a lot of fun, we had high attendance at games and several groups such as the dance team, cheerleaders, marching band, and Army ROTC program interact with one another and the fans for a fun atmosphere. The pyrotechnics class also put on a fireworks show during some of the half-time shows. There is also an intramural sports league that is a lot of fun to get involved with. I am not involved with Greek life, but it has a big presence on campus and they also offer a lot of opportunities. At night on campus I always choose to walk on the most lighted path and I always stay aware of my surroundings, but I feel those are normal, practical things anyone should practice anywhere.

Overall

The campus is nice but right now it is under construction so it is hard to get around. I really like most of the professors, but I have not meet most of them. The sororities and fraternities make the campus fun and exiting.

Academics

The class sizes are usually smaller except for lectures when the student just have to listen. Sometimes i feel that the classes give too much homework that is really hard usually. If a person is going into engineering this is the school to go to otherwise it seems like a waste of money and time.

College Life

There are sports at this campus but not many people go to them. There are many clubs but most have to deal with engineering. I do not think that there is a art club or many art classes. Most weekend there is some type of party going on and most people are at those on Friday night.

Overall, Missouri S & T is a great school if one intends to pursue an engineering degree. Though the school is very hard, the job placement and future financial security makes it worth the effort. The faculty at this school is very helpful in all aspects of learning and living on campus.

Academics

At Missouri S & T, the classes sizes are fairly small. Most classes I attend are around 30 students. The professors are all willing to help via office hours and email. The workload is quite intensive, but in return one gets an engineering degree from a very respectable school.

College Life

The social life at Missouri S & T is quite nice. Though Rolla is a smaller town in the ozarks, greek life is very helpful. Also, res life helps to create many activites for students who choose not to go greek. Be careful for St. Pats week, as it can become quite a party.
