Missouri University of Science and Technology

Rolla, MOwww.mst.edu/
Missouri S&T was one of the first tech schools west of the Mississippi River, and today it's considered among the top technological research universities in the country. It is located in the small town of Rolla, Missouri, and surrounded by beautiful Ozark scenery. While best known for its engineering programs, S&T (as it is called by most students) also offers degrees in the sciences, liberal arts, humanities, and business. Its about 6,900 undergrads and 2,000 graduate students come from all 50 states and 60 foreign countries. In their free time, students can participate in more than 200 student organizations and an assortment of varsity and intramural sports. The Miners compete in the Great Lakes Valley Conference of the NCAA Division II. A cornerstone of S&T student life is its many design teams, made up of over 600 students, who collaborate with industry professionals to build everything from dirt bikes to solar panels to robots. The biggest school tradition of each year is S&T's famous St. Patrick's Day celebration, in which students, faculty, and local residents get together and literally paint the town green.
