It helps you learn and grow as a human being. And at ERAU everyone is going to be pretty much like you.
Additionally something to be said for working together to achieve goals with people who are not like you.

Also not paying for the kids to party, they have to meet the academic threshold I determine (in a field of study I approve of). Once that's accomplished, I hope they find time to have some fun.

ERAU has no advantage. I graduated 25 years ago with an aeronautical scince degree. There is absolutely no advantage. Date of hire is what is used for seniority. Only go to Riddle if you can graduate with zero debt. There are so many other great options.

I have a buddy who went to riddle and came out with over 200k in debt. I came out of a small college and did my ratings on the side with 60k in debt. We are both in the exact same place in our careers and we got there at the same time. That story has been told again and again.. dont go there unless you have someone to pay it off.. even then why have someone pay over 3 times the amount for something they could pay cheaper for.
