Hey everybody! I’ve started to make a list of colleges, and I would like to pursue VEX U in college, and I was wondering if there was a list of colleges that have VEX U teams available. The only threads about this are from like 5 years ago, and I am sure many more have joined since then. Does anyone have any colleges and their team names?
There was a thread not too long ago about VEXU, and I feel compelled to provide similar advice to you as I did to that poster.
While Vex is a wonderful program and I’m sure you have many great memories and experiences with it, I would strongly caution you against limiting your college choices based on whether a VEXU team exists there or not. College is an amazing time, with a broad range of clubs and opportunities, both with robotics and STEM more generally as well as social, etc.
Please consider the totality of what a college or university offers. There may be a great fit for you that does not have a VEXU team, but does have other clubs or opportunities for you to “scratch that itch” that you feel VRC currently satisfies.
Yep, I completely agree with you! VEX U is just a bonus for me, and I need some more ideas for colleges, anyway. Obviously, it is going to come down to my final major, distance from home,
price/competitiveness, and more, just like any other college selection!
