What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
look into the programs and the people, and give this place more than a once over. when students first arrive they usually love the school, but not prescott itself. i had the same reaction. coming from socal it almost seemed like i might go crazy in a small town like this... but at this point i've pretty much deemed prescott my home. i love it here. most people have the same story as i do, when i got here i was worried, and now that i'm almost done i don't ever want to leave. pretty much what i'm saying is, if you are interested in the school, give it a chance because i guarantee you'll find what you're looking for. on top of that the one thing i can say is once you're here, get involved, in anyway you can, early and as often as possible. clubs, sports, groups and organizations are a very important part of social and academic life that i discovered much later than i should have, don't make the same mistake i did. get involved.

Come with an open mind. The professors and fellow students are amazing. The school community and campus are wonderful. It is a great school

Definitely visit the campus before you make your decision. I was leaning toward the Florida campus until visiting Arizona. Don't let the heat scare you off, I'm from Maryland (where the humidity is often above eighty percent) and when I stepped out of the plane I was stunned by how comfortable i felt in the dry air.

This university is not for students who are unsure of what their future intentions are. Embry-Riddle gives you the education needed to begin a successful career in the aeronautical industry and that training begins as soon as you begin your studies freshman year. This university is highly regarded in the aviation industry and is challenging but highly rewarding. The faculty and students are very welcoming and will strive to help in any way possible to ensure your success.
Anna from Fountain Hills, AZ
A great tip for reducing the cost is take some of the General Education classes in a community college if the belt is a little tight on the budget. This will help reduce the impact of the school and bring a little recognition from your peers because you will be slightly ahead of those around you.
Nicholas from San Diego, CA
- Do not overload yourself with credits. You will end up regretting it later.

- Hang out with your fellow peers and learn to do stuff together with them. It will make your time here far more enjoyable and memorable.
Nate from Southern California
For prospective students, getting a head start before coming to this school is very important. As an engineering student, I would focus on physics and calculus. Those are the basics of anything you will do in the engineering world and just having a head start on those subjects can greatly ease the journey ahead. A second tip is know that you enjoy aeronautics in one way, shape, or form. Even if you do not pursue an aeronautics degree, the surrounding students, teachers, and even buildings have an emphasis on flying.
Laura from Cave Creek, AZ
If you want to come to this school make sure you are prepared to study and you are not expecting to party every day.
Sheldon from Mission Viejo, CA
1)Stay on top of your school work. Falling behind means you will have to play catch up near the end of the semester when you need to be focusing on finals.
2)The college has many guest speakers come to talk on various topic throughout the year. Attending these lectures can offer an insight into the field you have chosen.
3)Don't forget to have fun. Work hard but take breaks. It is really easy to lose your focus and goals under the work load here. If you take a break every now and then to have fun it will be easier to keep your eye on the what comes after you graduate.
