embry-riddle aeronautical university (riddle to current students) is the top aviation and aeronautical engineering university in the country. we are a very diverse campus, hosting students from all around the world. however, we are also very small, at only about 5,000 undergraduate students.

embry-riddle has a way to make out-of-state students comfortable with the new environment. they also provide an organized flight program, and everything on campus revolves around the aviation world. the best part of all is that the flight training begins right away.
