The Greek program rules the school filled with

Feb 26 2014Engineering Department
The Greek program rules the school filled with close-minded, back-stabbing individuals. They are letting in more females to even out the lack of them in the school by lowering the SAT scores and adding theater and business. Wow, this formally strong engineering school has morphed into a blend of non Engineering touchy-feely, let's party, students. If you are not in a fraternity or sorority forget about enjoying your time here. Oh, and for those students who think I am not in one, you're wrong. What a bunch of high school losers.

The school academic engineering program is strong

Feb 23 2014Engineering Department
The school academic engineering program is strong. The campus is beautiful and opportunities are many. However, for the past few years they continue to lower the SAT score for female admittance. I rarely attended class during freshman year but did extremely well. No NR, No Cs. If you NR out of engineering, they now have business "engineering" management and an engineering school. REALLY? Now, we have a school with more females that are clueless and not able to handle the academics. They make up for it by joining sororities. The majority of females (almost 85%) are in a sorority. Days are spent backstabbing each other and talking behind everyone's back. High School all over again. And don't dare leave the Greek system, they will make your life hell. If you want to avoid attending High School all over again DON'T GO HERE. If I had known how strong the Greek presence was I would have avoided this school at all costs.

I haven't graduated yet and I'm hoping it

Jan 09 2014Chemical Engineering
I haven't graduated yet and I'm hoping it will all be worth it but let me tell you, this is not a normal college experience. People do no know how to have fun here and let loose a little bit and not be so uptight about everything. School is full of sheltered people who are afraid to try anything so free time can get pretty dull, especially if you don't want to just smoke weed during your free time. But, from the looks of it, if you put the work in, you can get a great, well-paying job and if it means having a not-so-great college experience, well it probably is worth it.
