TROY, New York, U.S.A. — One of the top schools for engineering in the country is Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, or RPI.
Located in Troy, N.Y., it’s just 10 minutes away from the state capital in Albany.
A highly competitive school, its student population is diverse.
There are plenty of friends to go bowling, play pool, swim laps or work out with.
The campus is fairly large as well. There’s even a bridge to cross.
There are dorms with two people to a room and every two rooms share a bathroom.
The university, being an engineering school, is very up-to-date. There’s a large 24-hour computer lab (which you may need a sweater for year-round) with access to anything.
The dining serves, well, you know, your typical college meals.
While the Russell Sage Dining Hall was lovely to dine in, the price seemed high.
One student I spoke with said students don’t like it at the school. But others said they couldn’t be happier.
You’d have to see for yourself.
But if you stop and ask directions, don’t make the mistake of inquiring how to get to RIP like I did!
