11 Perks Of Going To An Engineering School

It's not as bad as people make it seem.

11 Perks Of Going To An Engineering School

Yes, engineering schools are not easy. Yes, it is very likely that if you're an engineering student, you won't really have a social life. And yes, it is also very true that you will spend many hours studying for tests, and crying about how much homework you have. However, there are also perks about going to an engineering school that many times outweigh all of those horrible nights we have to spend stressing over our grades and trying to learn as much as we can the night before the test in order to pass the class.

1. You are surrounded by people who feel your pain.

You will always have people who will stress over classes, cry, and laugh with you anytime during the day, because you are all going through the same thing.

2. Everyone thinks that you are very smart because you're going to an engineering school, even though many of us get less than 60 percent on tests.

What they don't know is that for a lot of our classes, we only need a 50 percent to pass.

3. Your conversations are very... interesting.

You might feel like you're having a normal conversation, but deep down you know that half of the people who are not engineers would be looking at you like you've lost your mind. However, this is not the case, because you're going to a school with people who are just like you!

4. We don't need to have perfect grammar, and no one really cares because "we're smart."

But it's always a plus if you can write properly!

5. You don't have to make up excuses if you don't wanna hang out with people.

You can simply say that you have a lot of homework to do, and people will understand, because you will always have homework, even when you think you don't... you do.

6. Many of us haven't written an essay since high school.

Unless you're taking a freshman year seminar, or a humanities class that requires you to write essays, you won't be writing any essays any time soon.

7. Tech Tuesdays.

I think there's no need to explain that one...

8. Even when you start to regret your decision of becoming an engineer, there's always gonna be that person who makes you feel good by telling you that you will make a lot of money and that it will be easy for you to get a job when you graduate.

Let's be honest, who doesn't want a lot of money and an easy-to-find job? We all know that the hard thing won't be getting a job, the hard thing will be graduating with a decent GPA.

9. You will meet amazing people.

It doesn't matter if you're an introvert or an extrovert, you will find your squad and you'll fit right in.

10. You don't need to pay a tutor in order to learn something that you didn't understand in class.

Remember that you go to an engineering school! Chances are that you can walk down the hallway and find someone who is taking the same classes as you and will be willing to help you understand math, or life (because apparently engineers don't have a life, so we don't know what having one feels like).

11. Feeling like you can fix anything because "you're an engineer".

Even though many of us are not even halfway done with college, and still don't have an engineering degree.
