About 2,500 undergraduate students attend the school, and class sizes are small (21 students per class). The majority of students are men (72%), and one in four of the school’s students qualify as low-income. Nearly all of its students receive some form of financial aid, and the college offers a number of need-based and merit-based grants and scholarships.

Outside of the classroom, students can get involved in Greek life, intramural and club sports or student government. Referring to St. Patrick as “the patron saint of engineers,” students celebrate St. Patrick’s Day for an entire week each spring, with activities like a mashed potato contest, a parade and, true to the school’s focus on engineering, an egg drop and catapult design competition.
