  1. Does anyone know what it is like teaching at Rose-Hulman (or what the current environment is like there)? I remember from my own undergraduate days that it had an incredibly prestigious undergraduate Chem engineering program, but I got the impression that the students tended to be quite a bit more entitled than the average (the average being pretty entitled to begin with.) I wonder if that still holds true. Also, I was surprised that their advertisement didn't mention external funding and focused mostly on teaching. Does anyone know if that is an accurate portrayal of the actual job there?
