5 College Sophomore

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: 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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

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.

5 College Sophomore

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

4 College Sophomore

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!

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Being a vegetarian seems so difficult here. I've only known of one vegetarian restaurant and its pretty far away with very limited hours.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Riddle really cares about the students and always puts their safety first.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Apply early and DO NOT PROCRASTINATE! The longer you wait, the less money you get and the more frustrating it becomes.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: You either get a big group of party-ers, of the real introverts, there's sort of no in between.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: Anytime you eat at the buffet leaves an intense curry scent, its absolutely disgusting!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: As a female on campus, the atmosphere is great!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Meal plans are way over priced at just under $2000 a semester ($150 per week). Not only is it not cost effective, but there are not a lot of tasty options (and healthy options are even more limited); I end up eating the same thing almost every day. The "fake Chipotle", the Salad bar, in the landing strip and the sub place in the UC are the only good options on campus.

Overall, I could eat way better with under $150 a week then I do with meal plans.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am living in McKay at Embry-Riddle. My room is very spacious and furnished will all the necessities; however, McKay is very old an therefore has a lot of problems. I had a leak in my wall and mold was growing between me and my sweet mates room for over a month before they came in and cut out part of our wall and replaced it. Also, I had mold growing in our air conditioning unit and constantly reappearing in our shower. In addition, McKay does not have as much of a social perk as the other dorms because it is set up like a motel and has one lounge on the far end that no one cares to go to.

Overall, I do not think McKay is cost effective because you pay around $750 a month to share a bedroom and have two sweet mates. I have a three bedroom apartment now and I am paying $313 a month and I am living with three people instead of four and I have my own room and a full kitchen
