  • Have a son that attends. The university is located against the airport and less then a mile from the track. The grounds are nice and everything is conveniently located. Safe area of town as well  more »

  • This has to be the friendliest campus I've been to. Their student union has a great cafeteria with different food options  more »

  • The campus overall is quite attractive and seems nice, but several of my commercial and airline pilot friends have told me you DO NOT have to pay ERAU $100K+ to become an airline pilot. It’s just not required. There are several more affordable routes to become a professional full-time pilot. The campus sure is purty though.
  • The environmental is cozy, full of bunch intelligent students and friendly stuffs, willing to help to get a tour at school. It’s definitely the great place for those purpose for further education in aeronautics.
  • We are setting up for our son to start there . We visited 2 times and seen many others this shows to be the best out there ... im a proud parent of a kid who is shooting for the stars .. and literally he is astronautical engineering hopes of one day spacex this is the place to be and glad to have such a great school around for him
  • I recently applied to this university, but the first thing I've noticed is there customer service is "horrible". There's no need to attempt to reach a counselor for counsel. The only human interaction is the interaction to establish a student's account with the institution (how ironic); everyone else, you'll have to leave a message then wait a few days for a follow up. I wonder... how does this impact our service members fighting overseas who desperately need help, but doesn't have the luxury of waiting or providing a return number for Embry-riddle staff member to leisure return their call. If you desire quality customer service this institution is NOT recommended.
  • If you're planning on applying here: DON'T DO IT. You'll be treated like the best student ever from your application to your first day of orientation. After that, you better learn how to fend for yourself because you'll be hard-pressed to find friends outside of Greek life or sports. Both of which are highly exclusive groups that will treat you terribly if you aren't one of them. You'll find yourself wasting away in your dorm room, wondering why you're never happy. Believe me: it wouldn't be your fault. The school would be responsible. If you're a freshman, you'll be assigned an advisor non-specific to your major in "First-Year Programs." They seem nice enough until you're sitting there, being told "you probably just aren't cut out for a STEM field. You should try somewhere else, but PLEASE stay! We value your presence here!" It's all lies they tell for money, and you'll get some vague answer that dances around everything you just asked. As for the classes: you'll be challenged, no doubt. However, that doesn't mean they're useful. The school isn't preparing you for the real world. They're preparing you for an exam that will mean nothing after the semester ends. You'll be pulling your hair out for nothing. But don't consider asking the school for advice. They'll simply reply, after a week or more of waiting, that you're just not smart enough for them and that the classes are challenging for a reason (translation: more money for them). If you aren't planning on being an engineer or pilot, good luck. You're the bottom of the barrel. They don't care about your program, so you better just stick with what's making you pull your hair out every day. If you start as an engineer or pilot, but then you decide to switch majors, good luck with that too. If you didn't do well in a class (say you got a B), you'll get an email back from the program advisor saying he doesn't want you in his major because you didn't get the grades HE wanted. He'll also say he doesn't want to meet with you because you're not worth his time, so try again when you have a 4.0. Yes, that really happened to me. Sure, there are a few good things about this campus. It's near NASA, you're in a warmer climate, and there are some professors that contradict everything I mentioned above. However, those do NOT cancel out the bad at the nightmare that is ERAU Daytona. It is a mess that has students working to fix the school's problems. You're going to be scratching your head at every turn, wondering how such a prestigious school can be so idiotic and useless. You're much better than this university will ever treat you. You're capable of making the closest of friends, passing all your classes with amazing grades, being an active community member, working on research projects with highly-qualified professors, and much more. This is where I shamelessly plug the ERAU Prescott Campus. I transferred here in the Fall of 2018, and I can assure you that I have thrived so much here. I can't promise this will be a better fit, but I know it's a better campus. The two feel like different schools altogether, even when Daytona takes money away from Prescott to fund their useless projects. This place does more with less, and it really pays off. I wish you luck in your future endeavors, and I trust you'll make the right decision for your needs and desires. If you're an employee from the Daytona campus reading this: thank you for the absolute waste of a first year. I never received the help I needed, both in and out of the classroom. You need a reality check because there is nothing, NOTHING more valuable than the minds of your students. I never met a single student there that could say, wholeheartedly, that they loved where they were. Their money should mean less than their efforts and happiness by a long shot. Then again, I'm sure this is just a minimum wage student reading this, and it will never even reach the computer screen of an actual employee.
