I'm in the Geological Engineering program and I love it because all of my professors love traveling and there are so many opportunities to travel in my department. I switched into this department, so if I could redo it I would probably start out in this department. I would love to travel the world using my skills to help solve problems, particularly with water, so that kids all around the world can have clean water to drink. Having clean drinking water is really important to fighting off diseases and healthy kids can go to school and learn and make a better future for themselves. I really don't have too many concerns about finding a job, it's just about finding a job that lets me travel, alot!

For a state school, I think S&amp;T has a good financial aid program. I got almost half my tuition paid just for stating my GPA and ACT score on their no-essay application. If you were an overachieving high school student who either lives in Missouri or a state that participates in the Midwest Exchange program, you can probably get at least a third of your tuition paid for up to 4 years. Also, once you get into your degree program there are departmental scholarships that one can also apply for. Every department is a little different. Are you an athlete? Well this school is very academically driven and athletics get pushed to the back of the bus. But if you are really good at what you do and there is a varsity team here, you will most likely get some hard earned cash for 20 hours of hard work a week. Are you a girl? Your financial aid package just doubled! The school also sends out application forms for various scholarships via email.

It's a demanding school. I have ADD and have found , through trial and error that I can manage getting involved in up to 2 campus organizations outside of classwork before my grades begin suffering as a result. It's not uncommon for people to attend 5 to 6 years before graduating with a bachelor's degree, because engineering school isn't easy. There's not much variety with regards to campus dining and dining is located in remote sections of the campus. Students receive university email notifications every so often, 1 or 2 a semester, of female students that are sexually molested on and sometimes off campus in the Rolla area. The professors in higher up degree related classes are great and truly care about students. The gen ed professors for classes like Chem, Calc, Physics, etc range between awesome and couldn't care less about you. It just depends on the instructor you get.
