Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Daytona Beach Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Devin

I wish someone would of told me that we would have so much free time.

Mackenzie

The worst thing I consider about my school is the tuition. It is 40,000 dollars a year, which is really expensive.

Caitlyn

I would expand the university and increase the amount of study spaces and food options.

Robert

Female to male ratio has a vast gap with very little girls and mostly men. low retention rate. too much pressure on students

Charles

The worst thing about the school is the payments. Payments are extremely high and difficult to manage. A payment plan is tailored to the university and is only broken down to quarters, making payments rapid and difficult depending on how much you owe.

Oluwaseun

One of the worst things about my school is the total lack of diversity. Do not be deceived by the less than 50% African Americans, Asians, Hispanics and other races along with a 4:1 guys-to-gals ratio. It is a pity that with an imbalanced student body such as this there are no cultural awareness events, hardly any foreign language cultures or available tutors, and lack of emphasis on liberal and social arts and science for the more well-rounded student.

Arnaldo

I considered the worst thing about my school is that for students that are commuters theres no tutoring in the morning of afternoon all the tutoring is after 5 pm . I have to make an appointment to go to tutoring too. Some classes that you are requird to take shouldn't be requird at all like for engineering you should need social studies for it .

stephen

The school is very heavily male dominated. This is bad because the diversity in gender also leads to diversity in thinking and newer ideas and techniques.

Craig

Almost every student has to go through the Riddle run around every semester whether it's registering for classes or clearing up finnancial aid.

Christopher

Teachers in the math and science departments speak broken English and fail at getting their students to fully understand material before moving on. Some appear to only show for a paycheck and don't really care of their students pass.

Frankie

I think the worst thing about this school is how long the lines can get in the lunch area. I only say this because there aren't many things that i don't like about this school. This was the worst thing i could think about.

Darvi

I love everything about my school, I think it's the best Aeronautical university there is. I guess to name one thing is that my school is very expensive.

Adam

It is expensive. Being the best also comes at a price.

Andrew

Being the world?s only aeronautical university also limits the makeup of the student body. The male-to-female ratio of undergraduate students is decidedly skewed toward a majority male environment. This creates an atmosphere similar to a military academy or other technology focus university. Having the university located within Daytona Beach Florida is a sufficient consolation.

Nolan

I consider the worst thing about my school the financial aid department. They are not very helpful with giving financial assitance nor advice.

Rafael

The male and female ration which is about 1:4 is the worst thing about the school.

Natalie

Our school did not have a football team. I feel to have a great homecoming you should have a football team and an awesome Marching Band to represent.

Melissa

The cost of the school. It is expencive for a school. Although it is expencive, the education you recieve is uncomparable. It is deffinitly worth it. Abother bad thing is lack of females. You just have to getuse to being the only girl in some of your classes.

Martin

its way too expensive and the dorms should be better maintained.

Leo

I consider that the worst thing about my school is that is very expensive, because you need to take loans (with high interest rate), so for a student like me, without a wealthy condition, It's complicated to find money for college... but at Embry-Riddle i'm studying what I like: Aviation. Other thing is that is a little bit complicated to find a barber shop nearby and that you need to use a bike to get an easy ride to/from building classess.

Ryan

The male to female ratio. It causes a lot of tension and competition for guys and changes girls.

Julianna

The worst thing about my school is how expensive it is. Getting an aeronautical science degree from here is VERY expensive. In the end they say it is worh the name...also I feel like the take anyone who wants to come just because they want to take their money.

Cassie

the people

Paul

The cost of my school is by far the worst thing. For flight students it seems unfair to not only pay for tuition, but also pay for every one of your flights at a higher rate then any other flight school.

Joe

The cost to attend this school is very high. I know a lot of oppertunity is available here, but maybe there could be more financial aid for students.

enrique

The worst thing is the financial aid, because this school promises financial aid and in the end they barely or do not give. I have a good GPA and as a pilot , flying career is expensive, I have earned 4 ratings within 1 year , during my freshman year, a great and hard to do accomplishment and school will not reward that.
