3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, it's okay. I like that it's not a huge school, and that my class sizes have stayed pretty small. But it's getting bigger. I've heard they cram freshman into the theater for a 600 student chem 1 lecture. I would hate that. They keep accepting more students, without adding more professors or classrooms. If you can survive the freshman year weed-out courses, you can survive the rest of your years here. I definitely had to learn how to teach myself, since some professors aren't very good, but for the most part I had some good teaching assistants. It's really hit or miss. Make sure you check out rating websites before you pick your professors. That's helped me get some better teachers. I didn't really enjoy the dorms, but if I had to choose I'd suggest TJ. The food will be great the first month, and s*** the rest of the year. That's just how it is. There are a lot of events on campus, if you're into those. And tons of organizations to join. Some really great engineering design teams, that don't get nearly as much recognition from the school as they should. The students are pretty great, and there are some awesome professors. You just have to find them. The administration drives me nuts. The higher ups don't seem to care so much about individual students as they do about numbers and money. If you want a quality, respectable engineering degree, this is the place to be. But if you want good research opportunities, a spot on a design team, and leadership positions then you have to seek them out. Things don't just fall into your lap. But there are lots of people willing to help you out, so long as you ask.

Overall Experience: This school isn't for everyone. There's a lot to hate about it, and if you're the right person, a lot to love. My least favorite thing about this school is the other students. Everyone seems to have a superiority complex. Most of the time it's just feeling superior to people at other schools, and of non-STEM majors (some people think you're not on their level if you're not an engineering major specifically). Most of the time the students feel a weird comradery. The food is really bad. It hasn't gotten better during my time here. The classes are rough and some of the majors have really bad, disorganized professors. My major, geology, is great. The professors all know what they're doing and seem to genuinely care about your learning. It really just depends on your major what your experience at Missouri S&T is like. The party scene is okay. It's basically all run by the Greek houses. I went to a couple of parties and got bored quickly, though. The campus is slowly getting more beautiful. As for things to do, there's not much. Watching movies with friends and studying are the main social activities. Walking around campus and exploring the buildings is how my friends and I have passed a lot of time. You have to be willing to make your own fun and put a lot of effort into making friends if you go here.

Overall Experience: I have made some great friends and tutoring centers are great. Only draw back is that they try to weed you out by making the classes very difficult and some of the teachers don't seem to care about the students like they should. St. Pats is also a thrilling experience for new students, current students, and alumni.

Off-Campus Housing: So much cheaper than the dorms. Parking sucks unless you were able to get one with a garage.

Off-Campus Dining: There is such a variety of places to eat at and most are reasonably close

Administration: If you don't bother them they won't bother you. But parking enforcement is ridiculous. I had a handicap tag last semester and someone from a sorority with no tag or permit kept parking in the only available spot and NEVER got a ticket

Party Scene: Rolla is a party place and there are great parties! Everywhere is super close so you don't have to worry about getting lost while drunk. There are plenty of places to crash too.

Campus Food: There are plenty of options, but costly. College students are poor and no one seems to realize this

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are so expensive to live in. They are cramped, but close to campus. It is cheaper to rent an apartment or house all year long than to live in the dorms during the school year.

5 College Student

Party Scene: The parties are awesome here. Anyone can go to a GDI party with a student ID. Greek Parties are pretty cool, you just have to have a greek sticker on the ID. The parties scene is huge here as people like to take away from the stress of going to an engineering school.

4 College Student

Scholarships: The incoming freshman scholarships are very easy to get, you just have to have a high ACT score. But, to keep the scholarships you are required to have a very high GPA, considering it is an engineering school.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: I lived in the dorms for a couple weeks before moving into a fraternity house. The dorms were very expensive and there is not a lot of options. Between the RC and TJ, TJ is definetely the better deal as it has the food court inside the building. The floor I lived on was very social and they all seemed friendly. Moving into the dorms and the entire housing process was very simple.

Athletics: Intramural sports are fantastic and a bunch of students partake in them, but the varsity sports are not great in quality.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's a heck of a lot better than the dorms that freshmen are forced to be in during their first semester.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few good quality places to go and a few reliable fast food joints, but I wish there were more quality restaurants around.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I enjoy not being bothered all the time, but I would appreciate things being done about riff-raff late in the evening. If actions don't bother others, then they don't bother me.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Wish there would be more girls, but it's really not too bad. I've only been to a couple bad parties.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I wish the site would be a bit easier to navigate and that more scholarships would be posted.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Thomas Jefferson has seriously dropped in quality and variety since the beginning of the fall semester. At least three days a week, I have to resort to cereal for my meal because nothing else is any good.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't enjoy living in the dorms due to them being overpriced for the incredibly small amount of space and the number of ruffians on the floor.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't have any problems getting financial aid from the school

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Very flexible as to where you can use your meal plan

4 College Junior

Local Area: I feel very safe at my school, they do a great job at making sure we have everything we need to be safe as well.
