First day of freshmen chemistry, the proffessor says "Look at the student to your left, and now to your right. At the end of the term, they won't be here. That's my job." Classes were tough, but well worth it in the long run.

Low cost, and all within walking distance.

The Engineering course is well respected. The first year is general Engineering course with cores in Math, Chemistry, Engineering, and Physics. Class sizes are rather medium sized with sizes ranging from 20 to 300. The larger classes are due to the large percentage of Engineers on campus. When we take more major specific courses the class sizes will drop.

Admissions

The application is free and online.

90% of classes were taught by a professor. classes were all different sizes from 20 or so up to 100. grading was very strict. dean's list was less than 1% of the class and only 1 or 2 students received all a's. not a research college at that time, per se. (now a university and much more research). engineering school with core classes per the engineering discipline you enrolled in. started as a freshman in electrical engineering and changed to some other engineering in the middle of the soph. year.

changed one more time and took extra two years to graduate. school was on a term basis and took 18-20 credits per term. saturday classes were also standard. faculty was excellant, but again not a noted post graduate school at the time. no study abroad even thought of.

Quality of Life

back in the 50's and early 60's c.o.l. cheap. food good engineering school so social life sparse unless in a fraternity. i was. no crime community didn't like college students especially the local males as the college guys competed for the local girls. college at that time had 50 or 60 female students to 2000 males. couldn't imagine any crime other than excessive drinking. safety was not a concern other than own foolishness driving drunk or other individual quirks.

Admissions

in the 50's, sent in application and got accepted or not. i got accepted

Core classes, major degree requirements, academic advising, class sizes, accessibility of professors, competitiveness, grading are some of the best. Workload is pretty intense. General requirements (Writing, Language Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences were a bit weak in the 1980's.

Quality of Life

Housing is inexpensive. Food is a bit more expensive than some other places. Campus, library, dining, neighborhoods, community relations, safety and overall happiness are fantastic. Crime is very low.

Admissions

I was a transfer student and it was a long time ago -- I graduated in 1984. There used to be scholarship opportunities for valedictorians and salutatorians as well as discounts for children of Alumni.
