Hannah

S&T is a great school for those who are mathematically inclined. However, if you only want to party this school is not for you, although many partake in that extracurricular activity. School is very close knit and it is a friendly environment. Professors are great and will always be there if you need them.

Glad

Missouri University of Science and Technology is a great college for people who prefer a quiet and peaceful campus environment. Students are generally accepting and friendly, so I gained friends more easily than I expected. The professors, on the other hand, are very approachable and are usually open to discuss with the students. There are also plenty of accessible facilities and academic resources that students can utilize to help in their needs (may it be academic, emotional, physical, etc.)

Brenan

All the professors are very nice and genuinely seemed to care about the students they taught. Everyone is nervous when they're going off to college, especially if you don't have friends going to the same university. However, the people at S&T are amazing. Students and faculty are so inclusive and everyone wants to help you find your place. There are over 200 clubs to be a part of at Missouri S&T that will help you do just that. There are countless resources to make sure students succeed. I wouldn't choose any other university!

James

Missouri University of Science and Technology is a diverse college with many great opportunities to help students get involved and achieve success in academic goals. Most of the professors are very helpful with students who need a little extra help with not only the material, but also with something that may be going on in their personal life.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Some of the best advice I could give myself is to practice time management. It's something so simple, but it can be the difference between dirty laundry and clean laundry or an A grade exam and a B grade exam. I had no idea how much time a single subject requires to fully grasp. Another thing I'd like to tell a younger me is to not stress about making friends the first week. Most people are generally friendly, and it's easy to get forced into a group with whom you have a poor connection.

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

    The location of the town it's located in. The town lacks activities that larger cities ofter, such as concerts, malls, sporting events, and a broad choice of dining. Rolla is halfway between St. Louis and Springfield, both about an hour and a half drive, and to drive to one of those cities just to do stuff is kind of a drag. The only decent dining in Rolla is an Applebee's, Denny's and fastfood . It would be nice if there was more to do.

  10. What are the academics like at your school?

    First of all, be prepared for many foreign professors in the math department. I've had 2 Polish profs and a Chinese prof plus a Chinese TA and an Indian TA. Sometimes the accents can be a bit of a challenge. I actually formed a friendship with a professor of Psychology and we spoke after class nearly every class period. Classes are much harder than high school. I'm sure there are some students who can continue to breeze by, but the majority of students must put in many hours of effort, especially in Math and Engineering classes.

  11. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    Well, one of the best parts about this school is that everything is super close together. To walk from one side of campus to another, it takes roughly 8 minutes. At some of my friends' schools, it takes them roughly 15 minutes taking a shuttle. Another awesome part about our school is that there is always some activity happening on campus. Every week, there can be up to 10 different events happening. That's very cool, but it makes figuring out what you want to do slightly difficult because there is so much to choose from.

  18. Describe your favorite campus traditions.

    My school underwent a name change a few years back, from the University of Missouri-Rolla to Missouri University of Science and Technology, and that change illustrates exactly the traits for which my school is renowned. Missouri University of Science and Technology produces some of the brightest scientific and engineering-minded individuals in this country; we are an island of innovation and science in an otherwise agriculturally-focused state. Our solar car team competes against Ivy League schools. Our student body is diverse. The STEM education here is truly world-class, and student's pride couldn't be higher.
