4 College Senior

Academics: For a public university, the academics are very good. It's a top-rated research engineering school, and if you major in an engineering discipline you are pretty much guaranteed a job upon graduation. Majors such as computer engineering/ comp sci are also heavily recruited by companies. The university heavily caters to its engineering disciplines.

Oddball majors such as statistics or mathematics aren't as heavily recruited, and students will have to do well academically as well as put in a lot of independent effort to find jobs on their own. The non-engineering majors tend to be smaller, courses won't necessarily be offered frequently enough or in a convenient sequence to graduate on time.

College Freshman

Academics: I am not good with names so I do not remember any important alumni off the top of my head.
