Great engineering programs, at least in my field. It has a dedicated engineering campus a little ways from here. This school is most well known for its aviation program, probably one of the best in the nation.There's a lot of RSOs to chose from, it's in a great city there plenty to do in Kzoo, the social aspect of it is top notch, if you're into partying. Not the best, but overall a very solid school.

I am an the flight science and maintenance program. The teaching staff are friendly and helpful. The administration staff is best not knowing. I will not make this a personal review however I would not have attended this program if I had met these shady people previously to starting the program. Aviation is a harsh business because you can be grounded for months on end based on false accusations till faa clears you on the whim of the college of aviations admin. The maintenance program used to be largely ignored and many of the learning aids in disrepair. Recently the school put a little bit of money into some upgrades finally that are about to go in. Be prepared though when going to this school flight science gets the most attention and funding. The school then within that program favors students who have there own transportation and straight out of high school. The college of aviation is 26miles from main campus be prepared there is not enough transportation available for everyone at peak times such as the 0700 bus to make it to 0800 class. You will get left behind if your not there before everyone else and you will have to make up the time and or miss a flight. FAA regulations require you to mack up all time missed from class. This will be on your time and in flight science you will pay extra for it. They make prior service who have families second rate with less opportunities to excel.
