Major: Chemical Engineering (This Major's Salary over time)
Florida Tech might not be as good as a school as UF, UVa, or even UNH, but it makes up for it in personal attention. For Chemical engineering, there are about 50 students in the undergraduate program, so all your teachers in your major know you very well. For core classes, the class sizes are bigger, but ussually the professor will have ample office hours where you can get your questions answered. In general, the fauculty is friendly and will do anything to help you suceed.

Pros of florida tech:

  • small school
  • small class sizes
  • tight-knit community
  • nice looking campus
  • few miles from the beach (how many tech schools can say that?)
  • very major-specific (start out in classes in your major immediatly)
  • friendly fauculty
  • school wont let you slip through the cracks (academic support center, advisors keep tab on grades, and other programs)
  • research oriented university
  • it doesnt snow
  • Cons of Florida tech:

  • ratio is pathetic (if your a dude)
  • surrounding area does not help the ratio problem
  • melbourne is not college student friendly
  • if you dont have a car your gonna have to make friends with someone who does
  • anime>drinking
  • a good chunk of the student body is anti-social
  • orlando is an hour away (and not 5 minutes away)
  • school will let almost anyone in, but to make it through 4 years is very hard: expect to see 2/3's of the freshman class not make it to graduation.
  • graduating in 4 years in itself is hard: prepare to have to pay for 5-6 years for a 4-year degree.
