5 College Senior

Diversity: Diversity here is a great thing! Rochester is accepting of all cultures, races, sexual orientations and etc. It's a Christian college, but anyone can attend.

Weather: Living in Michigan in the winter is not fun. This year alone we already had three school closings due to the snow. Other than winter time when the snow hits hard and causes traffic issues, the weather is fine.

3 College Senior

Academics: Unfortunately at Rochester College as a Mass Communications major, every single class is the same. You are not learning anything different in one class that you haven't learned in another or the next semester of classes you take. The workload is great especially while working full-time. We have to pay an extra fee for classes in a computer lab, but we don't even use the computers so it's not fair.

3 College Senior

Academics: The registration process is sometimes tricky because the advisors can forget to add/subtract/move your classes and can potentially ruin your schedule of graduation. As I mentioned, the workload is okay, but the subject matter is all the same. I can't even look forward to a new class because I already know we are going to learn the same thing. I wish there was more variety at this school for a 2 year Bachelor's accelerated program.

2 College Senior

Facilities: The buildings look like a 1970's church and reception hall. I'm pretty sure the brick was whiter before now it's this ugly mustard yellow. The hallways are so narrow in the financial aid department only one person can fit in the hall at a time. The interior of the buildings look extremely old and outdated its embarrassing.The sports games are great to be a part of because we are known for our great soccer team!

2 College Senior

Facilities: Rochester College isn't a very big school at all. The campus itself you could almost pass right by and miss it because it's so small and looks like random buildings from the 1970's. I don't attend the Rochester College campus I attend an off-campus extended learning center for my classes.

3 College Senior

Computers: I bring my own laptop to class even if I have class in a computer lab. The computers are outdated and a little slow sometimes but otherwise they work pretty well.

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, I live at home with my parents.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Soccer games are the best because we have one of the best teams!

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: The one problem Rochester College has is transportation. The location does not provide students without a car with any form of public transportation, so the only option for students living on campus is to find someone with a car. Commuters have parking problems as well. With the enrollment increasing each year, this becomes a larger and larger problem. If there is an all-campus event, there may not be enough parking spots for everyone depending on how many people show up.

Facilities: Rochester College does a very good job of maintaining their grounds and buildings. The facilities are constantly cleaned and taken care of. We have a beautiful nature trail behind the college which is kept in pristine condition!

Off-Campus Housing: With Rochester College residing in Rochester Hills we are certainly surrounded by many different housing options. From apartments, to condos, to houses their are many options for students deciding to live off campus. However, it is at times hard to find something with an affordable or reasonable price because of the city we live in.

Transportation: Rochester College's campus is only about 1 mile long entirely. This means that transportation services are not necessary, and are non existent, to get around our campus grounds.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am very satisfied with my education thus far at Rochester College. The classes are small, which allows a more personal setting between the students and the teacher. The work load is challenging and sizable, but nevertheless manageable and comprehensive. I have no doubt that Rochester College will adequately teach me all that I need to know for my future in education.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not personally looking for off-campus housing at the moment. However, I have heard that because Rochester College is right next door to Downtown Rochester Hills, most nearby off-campus housing is expensive. On a positive note, the atmosphere Downtown is so inviting, and it's so much to do, the cost may not be such a disadvantage.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I came to Rochester College because my mother graduated from the college and recommended it. I am now here with a major in education. I love the environment and how close-knit of a community it is. Everyone just about knows everyone, the students and staff alike are friendly and genuine, the classes are small and personal, everyone works together to make the college a desirable place to be. An added bonus is that I'm in the college's A Capella Chorus and I absolutely love that ensemble!

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: the athletic programs are great, but the athletes at the school take away a lot from the christian atmosphere. it would be a better school without them. they all receive the majority of the scholarships, even though they don't try in classes like some of the other students do.

Scholarships: I received some financial aid, but not near as much as i need. I get great grades, work really hard, and act in a christian way, but the sports jerks are the ones getting all of the scholarships. I need more money and they aren't willing to help much

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The fans are genuine, the coaches are usually on their A Game, and the athletes set a fairly good example.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I personally did not live on campus but i was always crashing in my friends dorms. The freshman dorms are small but clean and the upperclassmen dorms are bigger and conveniently placed for the walk to classes.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Rochester is full of interesting places to go but the only downfall is that almost every place costs money. Also, Rochester is a wealthy city so it isn't cheap.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Most of the nightlife is all bars in downtown Rochester so if you are not 21 then you can not go.
