4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The best thing about off-campus, is it is living at it's best. You can be who you are, do what you want to do, have no curfews, etc. The cost is a little high if you want good security and not a dump or a place that is overrun with drugs, but you get what you pay for. There are a lot of properties in the immediate vicinity of campus, and there will not be any shortage of opportunities to find housing. The cons are the FL housing laws. You have to pay an administrative fee of up to a couple hundred dollars, and are not guaranteed to get a place. The deposits are low, for average. The rents are much higher than mortgages, so you might actually be better buying your kid a house and paying a mortgage instead of rent. Then, they can learn a little responsibility while they are getting an education. If they stay around after, they won't have to worry about stability!

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many more options off-campus than on-campus for students to eat. The prices are nominal, and the quality is fine. It's about what you'd expect for any city in the US.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't heard of any parties. I have not attended, or been invitied to any parties. I am not sure this school even knows what a party is. I threw a 'party' after finals' week, and like 2 people attended. They don't get it. Of course, there was no alcohol at my party, so I am sure that might have attributed to it, but then again, who drinks at Embry-Riddle?

College Freshman

Administration: It is not fair to rate 'scrictness' of a school. They are there to provide an education, not babysit. If you are not ready for college, do no go to college. Get in the Army, grow up, and then go to college.

That said, they are cut and dry. You would think this is the military, with the low rate of drinking and partying. Actually, I think they drink more in the military than at this campus. These people are mostly pilots, and as such, take their work serious. I am sure you would be proud to send your kids here. I am happy to be a student here, because I don't have to worry about a lot of crazy crap that happens at party schools.

Scholarships: Financial Aid is amazing. They bend over backward to help out. The reason I didn't give it a higher rating is that I needed more money to cover my costs, and exhausted all options they had and still was stuck with thousands of dollars I could not find. I make no money, and what I do get, I need to pay to feed my family, etc. I do not have time right now to try to make extra thousands of dollars to pay tuition. Other than that, I recommend this school for the financial aid support you'll get. They really do try to find money growing on trees!

Campus Food: It is way overpriced, and not high quality. The Sodexo contract is raping the students, and yet the campus has a strict sexual harassment policy. Campus freshmen are required to have the meal plan, and while that is good to make sure they eat, it is so expensive that the parents could order food online and have it delivered to the kids dorms for what they pay per semester. Think about everything before sending kids here. It has a great reputation, but at what cost? Send your kids to Notre Dame or Harvard or something.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm glad I don't live on campus, just because I have heard how high the 'rent' is on the tiny rooms. I have been in the main dorm, 'student village', and I have to say that my Army barracks from the 1950's were in better condition. They have little to no amenities, and though the internet is included with the cost of the residency, it's far from amazing. The people seem cool, though, and get along well. The cost is astronomical, though. If I were a parent, I would put your kid in school at community college for a semester or two, then transfer to Riddle, just to save on the cost of housing.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not get enough to cover half of my tuition, yet I recieved almost as much as the university was able to give. I would recommend having a 4.0 and applying as early as possible to deal with financial aid.

Campus Food: Most of the food on campus will can and will make you sick. It doesnt help that dishes are nearly never washed. On tbe upside, the buffet and UC do occasionally host social events.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is alright if you do not mind paying more than you should. Oddly enough, the cheapest building is the nicest and vice versa. I do not understand why but I'm lucky enough to be in the cheapest. The maintenance people are very angry and rude, regardless of how you interact with them or the problem at hand. Most rooms are missing things that haven't been replaced all year, such as chairs and lights. Several of the refrigerators in my building leak nearly half a gallon of water spontaneously. Meal plans are another part of campus life and they're much worse. Each meal plan is worth up to $9 when spending, but when purchasing one, it can cost nearly $15. Worse yet most things that we can spend these on are worth $2-6. In the end we are just throwing money away. It also doesn't help that most of the food on campus can and will make you sick.

Overall Experience: Being so far away from home, I wasn't sure that Embry-Riddle was the right fit for me. But after being here for almost 2 years, I couldn't see myself going anywhere else. I've made an impact on the campus, both through organizations and employment, and I feel as though I have made a connection not only with the students and professors, but also the faculty and the entire campus itself.

Overall Experience: All the professors at our school have an incredible amount of aviation experience, whether that be civil or military, and they can all personally relate to all the issues and topics that are discussed in class. On top of that, they are all extremely understanding, and wonderful to work with.

Overall Experience: A degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will impact your life in a way you would have never imagined. Countless students are constantly being interviewed, and do receive positions for internships and job offers, simply from being from this school. Our alumni network is extremely passionate and understanding, and Career Services do help you a lot, to make sure you get where you want to, with the degree you work so hard for.

Health & Safety: Safety is incredible at Embry-Riddle. As it gets darker, we constantly have security persuing the parking lots and asking whether they would like students to be dropped off at their cars. Even when there isn't much security, I, personally, feel very safe on campus. Our campus does alot to make sure our students are safe, including advertising our Campus Safety's phone number, and having students complete a mandatory video presentation at the beginning of the year, on sexual assault.

Greek Life: I think that Greek life has the biggest impact on our campus. There are constantly events held, for fundraising or awareness, both on and off our campus, that try to involve not only Greek life, but the entire student body in our events. Our school is a little different, we don't have a Greek row, and our greek life isn't exactly normal. A majority of our students are more passionate towards their majors and there are always competitions for highest GPAs between all the fraternities and sororities, which is really cool.

Athletics: Athletics are always fun for our school. Both intramurals and varsity sports are enjoyable, especially since our varsity sports are growing, expanding, and becoming more popular.

Off-Campus Housing: Our school does offer off-campus housing. I know students do live there, and do enjoy it. Although, I feel as though the dorm is somewhat hidden. I have only been there once and it was a little out of the way, with a couple of twists and turns. Even with it being "off-campus", the dorm is actually only 1 mile away, so a car isn't completely necessary if students choose to travel by bicycle.

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is great, because our school is right next to the International Speedway. We have everything a college student would want to eat off-campus, with deals. On Thursdays, Buffalo Wild Wings has a special of 60 Cent Boneless Wings, as well as on Tuesdays, all of the Hispanic restaurants serve $1 Tacos. In addition, we do have Chipotle, Panera Bread, McDonalds, as well as a few smaller franchises, such as Sweet Frog, Larry's Subs, and much more.

Administration: I feel, that because we are a special aviation university, we do not really find many students doing drugs or having illegal substances in our dorms. Even when students do choose to underage drink, I feel that I rarely hear of cases with students drinking in their dorms. Our campus is strict, but with good reason.

Scholarships: Financial Aid does help, although I feel that the advising staff makes more of an effort, reaching out to students with numerous emails about scholarships. Financial Aid at our school does not really make an effort to help students out with scholarships.

Party Scene: Personally, I'm not a big partier myself. Although, I do enjoy spending time with my friends. Every weekend, we always hang out at someones house and just relax, play cards and maybe watch a movie. With that being said, Embry-Riddle does have great students and relatable kids that make me look forward to weekends and getting my work done.

Campus Food: The food on campus was actually not that bad. When I first lived on campus, I felt as though all there was to eat was hamburgers and pizza. But once going to different places to eat, you'll notice that there are actually a ton of things to eat. There's a huge salad bar, a burrito place, and even Freshens! -- A smoothie place. I do meet students who say they'll never eat on campus again, once they move off, and I always see them in line the next day. Campus food is honestly pretty good and satisfying.

Campus Housing: Living on campus really varies from dorm to dorm. Personally, I lived in Doolittle hall, which had small dorm rooms, but an incredible atmosphere, as it was easy to make friends, and it was close to everything: the UC, the Gym, and all of my classes. Although, Wood Hall seemed alot more spacious and nicer, even though it was a bit further away from everything else. Overall, living on campus Freshman year was quite enjoyable.

Party Scene: As long as you have a good group of friends the night life is amazing! Razzles in particular has gets a bad reputation at Riddle, but if you ask the people who talk bad about it they'll tell you they have never actually been there, but they heard its bad. I personally go to Razzles, bishops and/or 509 almost every weekend and find it to be a fun place to dance, drink, and just hang out with friends. Daytona also has some really good hookah lounges if that is something you are into.

Off-Campus Housing: So much cheaper than living on campus and Eagle Landing is brand new and its only a mile away from campus, so you could easily walk if you want!
