4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many choices it all depends how far away you are willing to live from campus. You could get a house with a group of friends or an apartment if you only want one roommate. Most of time it is substantially cheaper than living on campus and a lot more comfortable.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: I only live on campus for freshmen year because it was required. It is too expensive. I save money off campus and living is so much better it isnt even comparable. You can only handle so much time being on campus, seriously.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: When someone gets sick everyone else eventually does. Safety is never there when you need it but always there when you don't need it.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Save you're money and just go to Vegas or Lake Havasu for Spring Break. After that you won't need to go to lame parties at ERAU. Lake Havasu is probably the best since lots of people from around the nation go there to party. Saturday nights are probably the best night to go downtown when you stay in town but Phoenix is better too...

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: If you don't have a car you will have a bad time unless you're willing to bike or walk which isn't too bad. The dells are a fun place to go to get away or go for a run and they are right across campus which is the best part. If you get a job at a restaurant or off campus it is easier to get to know the locals and they know where all cool places to hangout are.

Majors: Getting accepted is easy. It is paying for it that is the hard part. I suggest transferring in to this school. That is what I wouldve done if I could do it over again. You save lots of money. If you are an engineer you also have to be able to keep you're GPA because it is definitely tough. But it is possible to do you just gotta have you're priorities in order and stay motivated!

4 College Senior

Majors: I often say I hate it because it is rigorous but I really enjoy being challenged it only makes you stronger in the end. There definitely many opportunities in engineering. Internships can be found as a freshman as long as you talk to the career department and involve yourself with engineering clubs like AIAA or other clubs that actually build things and compete in competitions.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I personally prefer local places and there are plenty to choose from downtown. One of my favorites is Bills Grill and Bill's Pizza. There many other to choose from like PBC or Lonesome Valley Brewing Company it's nice to get away from campus and people from there because you get tired of them fast. If you like coffee there is nice place called Method Coffee and it is open later than most places surprisingly and they offer student discounts!

5 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Since the school is small everyone knows just about everyone else so if you talk to someone they usually always give you a second chance. As long as you're not hurting someone else

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Not many girls on campus lately admissions has been taking the initiative of accepting more girls onto campus but girls want the older guys so if you're a freshmen you'll find plenty of more girls outside of campus

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Honestly since it is a small school Greek life is only for those who think they can party like state schools but ERAU parties arent that great. It is funner to just go to parties with your group of friends. Greeks are for those who need friends or can't make any.

2 College Senior

Facilities: Life on campus is no fun. Especially with a small school many students go to phoenix or california for the weekends. Life outside campus is much better especially off campus living. The only good campus activities are those that give free alcohol to students over 21. It is my fourth year going there. There is way more to do away from campus. The older students understand this so most campus activities are only attended by first year students and those unfortunate enough to live on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: there is a large group of "nerdy" students as well as "jocky" students with little middle ground. The percentage of female students is extremely low

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a range of racial diversity. The women's and diversity center has many events including a pride week however there is still a large group of unaccepting students.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I personally do not partake in athletics like much of the student body.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Hard to judge as I live on campus

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Prescott is a retirement town with little to do for college students

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Most like to complain however its mostly a lack of variety

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most choose to leave campus but overall the housing isn't bad.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not being greek it is hard to judge.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I don't notice security much.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a variety so long as its before 9:00 pm

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a hugely diverse population here in terms of nationality. There is a low percentage of females on campus compared to males, as science careers are typically male dominated. the campus makeup reflects this.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some halls are extremely far away from the main campus, so it's a pain to walk from those dorms to classes. Also, some students were denied housing because they missed the deadline, and yet there are rooms with no roommates available these students could ahve moved into.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: nothing serious gets in the way

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, an institution founded exactly 22 years after the Wright Brothers' historic 1903 lift-off at Kitty Hawk, N.C., is where students and academics take flight. With a focus on aviation, aerospace, and engineering, Embry-Riddle offers more than 40 degree programs, in addition to master's and doctoral paths. The academics are what most students rave about, as the courses are challenging and rewarding, although engineering majors are known for especially getting the brunt of the workload. But even though professors pack their syllabi with a lot of assignments and projects, they truly care about their students, and students are thankful for this attention, especially with how high the tuition is (you get what you pay for!). The instructors are so attentive because it’s a small school, but sometimes this smallness can be a drawback, especially when it comes to the athletic programs. Not many students participate in varsity athletics, and there is scarce school spirit to support these teams, so if you're hoping to see flying banners in addition to planes, you're more likely to see the latter. Good news for the ladies' spirits, though: Guys are plentiful on campus, making up approximately 80 percent of the population.

Located in beautiful Prescott, Ariz., Embry-Riddle experiences sunny weather nearly year-round, which may be a reason why the surrounding area is known as a retirement community with little nightlife. Many students travel to Phoenix for more exciting attractions, with the state capital being about an hour and a half from campus. But while the Prescott area consists of an older community, that means that the crime rate is relatively low, which makes students feel safe in their surroundings. Plus, everything on campus is mostly within walking distance, so there's no need to have a car. If you do have a car, though, parking is readily available. If you need to get off campus and don't have a vehicle, the best advice would be to make a friend with one. To get to the airport, the University offers free shuttles for students, and by the end of your time at Embry-Riddle, you'll probably be able to tell your pilot how to fly the plane.
