Majoring in Mechanical Engineering

Fantastic for Engineers – Almost the entire school is engineering. The classes prepare you for what you need later for a career. Many employers also know of the great engineering programs and call on MS&T students right away.
On the other hand, the school may not be the best pick for majors not related to engineering
Terrible Winters – The school is terrible about clearing off the ice on campus. They try to get off the snow, but that just creates ice when the snow plows going over and over. People fall all the time. On the plus side, campus is small so getting around doesn't take long and building hopping is fun.
During the rest of the year, it's typical Missouri weather. It could be cold and rainy one minute, then bright, sunny, and hot the next. Usually the weather is beautiful.
Need to Find the Right Labs – The library is always filled. It's extremely difficult to find an open computer there and they don't always work. There are plenty of computer labs around the rest of campus, but still, some computers do not always work. Printing is very cheep. I never have a worry about spending too much. Reliability and speed are fantastic.
Decently Safe – Being a girl walking around a male dominated campus at night can be pretty scary, but I always feel safe. The only time I ever feel uncomfortable is walking past Greek housing. But they are just playing around. I never have to seriously worry about me safety no matter the time of day.
