    for engineering

    Purdue University and Texas A&M

    Western IL University is not know for engineering and is in the middle of nowhere.

    Utah State University can have a high percentage of Mormons there. same with Brigham Young.

    Purdue and University of Wisconsin will are close to Chicago if you want to visit.

    I can give you some information about Kansas State. It has a very good College of Engineering. The building is fairly new. The campus is really nice. Most U.S. college campuses are nice but all the buildings at Kansas State are built from native stone and it gives the campus a different look.

    The campus has a pretty good, friendly vibe. On some surveys Kansas State has been in the top 10 nationally for student happiness and friendliness of campus. There is also an active social scene. Next to campus is a shopping/entertainment district called Aggieville. It's two blocks of bars and restaurants.

    I'll be honest, Manhattan is a small town. The population is just over 50,000 and over 20,000 of that count are college students. It's very much a college town. Some people find it quiet. There are a lot of biking, hiking and camping opportunities.

    Wherever you choose, make sure you get out and get involved. Go to some school sporting events. Here is a video of the Kansas State student section before a football game. Enjoy!

    If you want to party, take out Baylor (Southern Baptist) and Brigham Young (Mormon).

    Go to college prowler and enter your priorities, and see if that helps. Link below.
