Major: Mechanical Engineering (This Major's Salary over time)
First of all i'm a little skeptical about that average SAT reported .. . intellectuals on this campus are few and far between outside the engineering department. The business department here is good I hear. The engineering department leaves much to be desired, the buildings are like dungeons, and most have antiquated heating and cooling systems and it is not even regarded as the best in Alabama (Auburn) much less the nation. Don't be fooled by brochures, the campus is not at all picturesque thanks to the constant renovation going on and the roads on campus are shoddy. That is until you reach the business side of campus, where North Face clad Birkenstock wearing, greeks roam free. If you plan to be Greek come here, you'll fit in nicely, individualism is not appreciated. I also have to live with the dubious distinction of getting an engineering degree from a school that ranks in the top two in "hard liquor" and "students who never study." "ROLL TIDE ROLL!!" A good place if you're a business major, or a greek . . .otherwise this is not the place for you. Lots of ditsy beautiful women though . . .
