Embry-Riddle is one of the few Universities that focus on Aviation. It is a great environment where people with the same interests live and work together.

Teachers are good and so are advisors but I feel like the school board only cares about making more money and luring new students to the school. For example currently there are three construction projects that are planned or ongoing at the Daytona campus. I don't really care about the new dorm because I live off campus and am not really affected by the construction nor the future squishedness of the dorms but the library has greatly affected my school life. I have a hard time focusing at my apartment/dorm and around other people so my freshman year I would always go to the library and use one of their many study rooms to isolate myself and do my homework and study but last year they tore it down and squeezed the 3 floor library/study space into the tiny book store room that is smaller than my parents house. Its always crowded and noisy and right in the middle of campus so there are always people there or around that I know and cause distractions. There are literally no other places on campus to study and do work and the new library isn't due to be complete until the last semester of my senior year. My grades tanked due to my lack of study space because whenever I would try to do work I would get distracted and do something else. I am moving to a new apartment complex that has designated study rooms so hopefully those help me concentrate and I don't get kicked out for academic reasons.

Not as helpful and resourceful when your seeking support with additional scholarships and financial aid. It appears that the school is more focused j financials than a student as a whole. Not always sympathetic to a students current situation. Don't feel valued just looked at as a number
