Almost everyone does something that goes towards their degree for the school! There are countless study abroad programs all over the world, and even more internship prospects, volunteer opportunities, and job openings from amazing employers. Networking is really strong between alumni and students, allowing better connectivity with students and possible career opportunities. The career center workers are always striving to help students in need, and seem successful in find students' needs. This is some of many examples of career prospects.

The academics here are really good once you get into the school! Not only for engineering and sciences, but also for business and other specific programs on campus. The courses are really hard, but are given to hardworking students so few fail out. Many professors are accommodating but not always. The courses have a decent variety, but "fun" classes are few and far between. In the end, every student walks out with an amazing education that guarantees them a job.

We are D3. There isn't much school pride in terms of sports... as in, sporting events aren't heavily attended except for close friends/family/significant others (except for homecoming, which is always a ton of fun!). BUT, I have to give the varsity athletes a lot of credit for all the time they put into their sports. You'll be surprised to find out that many of our athletes are in majors that are typically considered very hard, such as engineering, and most are very nice.

Intramural/club sports are also big here for people that cant handle the enormous time commitment of a varsity sport. A LOT of people get involved in these sports, including ice hockey, frisbee, fencing, etc. These teams do travel, too, and the teammates are very close.

Veale is our main athletic center/gym on campus, and it is open for all students. Many non-athletes come here to work out. It is a nice facility, though a bit far from North Residential Village (where the freshman and most upperclassmen live). We have a smaller gym in the village, and the school is currently building a new training center/field house outside the football field, which is on North Side, so that should be a big improvement!
