In general RPI is a great school with a very techincal background. As a result the events and working at both the graduate and undergraduate level is certainly on the cutting edge of todays technological and design development. While the nature of Troy and RPI can not necessarily be seen as initally exciting and extertaining I assure you that it is very easy to find ways to have fun and enjoy the college experience. The campus and the surroundings are welcoming of collegate students and I've never experienced a dull moment.
More so than most liberal arts or larger universities the specficity of major and studies is something I really enjoy about RPI. All the students that are there are very driven and interested in their respective studies. As a result the Academics are not so much a drain as they are a life style. Especially in the architectural field the academics and general conversation tends to overlap frequently. Even general conversation about the architectural career is very previlent between students and faculty and as a result you learn to truly enjoy your academic stay at RPI.
The student body consists of a very broad range of students from a variety of different backgrounds including local and international. Being a part of the RPi student body will certainly open you up to a variety of different cultures.
