4 College Junior

Campus Housing: While we don't have many dorms on campus, the ones we have are very nice. TJ Hall has a great community and is where I met many of my freshman year friends. While all the dorms are pricey, the Residential Commons is the most expensive. However, it offers the most spacious living on campus. One can have a private room/suite, or can share a common space with friends while still having a separate, personal bedroom.

Greek Life: At Missouri University of Science and Technology, we have only 3 sorority houses, but many fraternity houses. For girls, it may be harder to get into the house you want, due to formal recruitment. All of the sorority houses spend a lot of time doing community service, which is inspiring. However, the fraternities are viewed more as just boys who want to party. Many non-Greeks view fraternities as cliques who think they are better than everyone else.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Many student at Missouri University of Science and Technology don't have much concern for athletics. They came to this school for a high education in science and could care less about the sports teams. Therefore, school spirit seems to be lacking on campus. Sometime athletic groups hold fundraisers, but they don't get more support than the math club fundraiser would get. As far as fans go, besides other athletes, they are almost obsolete. At football games, most of the crowd cheering on our boys are parents and other athletes. Average students, don't take the time to come out and cheer on the team.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Missouri University of Science and Technology is a school where students have the chance to excel in math, science, and engineering. They offer a wide variety of classes, so finding ones you are interested in is not difficult. However, sometime professors seem to take on too much. Many professor juggle teaching, personal life, research, and publications. This may hinder their ability to teach to the best of their abilities. I have had teachers who have passed my questions about an assignment onto a TA because they were too busy to help. I have also had teachers who have cancelled class many times because they have other things to go to. It's frustrating to want to learn and to put in 100% when you have teachers who don't value your time or knowledge.

Campus Housing: I stayed in one of the best campus housing options(RC) and it is a good space but is extremely expensive.

Greek Life: Not sure about Greek life because I am not familiar with the organization.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I am not too familiar with the athletics department but I hear they are okay for an engineering school.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: For my initial response to S&T, I wasn't sure I would have stay but I made the decision to continue back in freshman year. I am glad that I did. With having a campus full of introverts, it encouraged me to become more active. The courses, professors, and students as a whole are generally okay. There are the few bad seeds here and there as expected but nothing too major that should make you give up on the university.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There have been a few instances of crime on campus, usually late at night. The police send out a message to all students via email or text regarding the situation, and it is almost always resolved by morning.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most students I know that have graduated from this school have found jobs in their chosen field that they enjoy. The average starting salary is pretty high, there are opportunities all over the country, and many students find internships or co-ops while they are still in school.

2 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics are mostly unimportant for the average student, as the school is Division II and not particularly great at any sports. Most of the focus on extracurricular activities is on engineering design teams. For example, the school's satellite design team is constructing a satellite that will be put into orbit in conjunction with NASA and the USAF.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is smaller than most state schools, and this is reflected in the class sizes and the willingness of instructors to offer extra help to students that request it. If you're looking for a party experience, this may not be a good school for you. The classes are challenging and most students are too busy studying to party a lot. With around twenty engineering degrees available in addition to other STEM degrees and lots of extracurricular engineering design teams, this is a great school for anyone interested in a career in engineering, science, or math.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Missouri S&T has a good career fair to help students get jobs, internships, co-ops, etc and employers know the value of education from this school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think Missouri S&T is a great place to be going to school.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have no complaints about the health and safety of the campus as of yet.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I can't give a full answer because I live in campus approved housing, not campus housing.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is not a huge part of campus life, I don't even know if it's difficult to get into or not.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics program and athletes are respected here but campus life doesn't revolve around it/them.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is very nice with the small campus size and small class sizes, I feel very comfortable here.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses and professors at the school vary greatly. There is also a very obvious line between professors who teach gen-ed classes and professors who teach classes that are for a specific degree. The gen-ed professors are not as easy to talk to and don't provide the same amount of support and study material as professors who teach other courses. It seems as though they don't care about the students' success in the course as much.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: S&T is known as one of the top three engineering universities in the United States(called the MIT of the Midwest.) We have close ties with big companies, such as Boeing and General Aviation and Koehler. Every Spring and Fall semester S&T holds a large career fair where students are required to dress in business formal attire and take their resumes to different companies in hopes getting either an internship, co-op, or job offer. Also, the companies that come are good at remembering people, so getting at co-op at one might get you a job after graduation if you do well enough.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: S&T has a lot of focus on being safe while drinking and also being safe while you're alone. They stress to never drink and drive and to always have a sober person with you. Also, S&T has a program called Step Up that asks students to step up in situations where a student might possibly become a victim of sexual assault or harassment or might be a danger to themselves or the people around them. They also have campus police throughout campus and emergency posts that allow students to press a button and a campus police officer will escort them to where they need to go if they feel unsafe walking campus alone.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is not a very difficult process if you're a freshman, sophomore or are going to be living in a Greek house. Freshman and sophomores are required to live on-campus unless they have the amount of credit hours that permit them to live off-campus, and freshman have priority for rooms at Thomas Jefferson residence hall. If you're a sophomore wanting to live there, you have to enter the lottery and hope that there are rooms left over after freshmen have all been housed.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek Life at S&T is definitely a huge deal. There are only 3 sororities, but many fraternities. The reason people want to join Greek Life is to help connect with people and make friends at a school filled with people who are very smart and seclusive and socially awkward. Also, fraternities and sororities have permission from professors in the school to keep files for every class that include old tests, homework assignments, and quizzes that can be used for studying purposes by students.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Missouri S&T is well known for it's top-of-the-line engineering graduates, not it's football and basketball stars. We do have a wide range of sports, but the only sports that do very well are Track and Field and Rugby. Basketball and football are mediocre when it comes to skill level and winning. There is much school spirit and pride, but for the academics and St. Pat's rather than football and other sports.
