The professors at RPI are “passionate about teaching,” “very accessible, and really there for the students.” Though there are certainly some “dull” professors (“I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly!” says one student), most find that the faculty is praiseworthy and “serve as great mentors for students.” “My professors in my direct major are extremely hands-on and discussion-based,” says a student. Thanks to the “focus on problem-solving,” professors are always looking to get students involved in projects, and one of “the greatest strengths of [the] school is the resources that they offer.” On top of that, the “welcoming overall community” fosters success, as “students are not extremely competitive and everyone tends to help each other out.”
The school is “rigorous,” but the students “do find time to enjoy the downtime when we get it.” RPI is “is a place where nerds can get both an excellent education and an enjoyable four years,” according to one student. The student union is entirely student-run, giving students “a lot of freedom to control our educational experience.” Many of the student clubs both “suit your interests and work toward your professional career after college.” All in all, “Community and knowledge drive this school to push students to excel in school and after graduation.”
