4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is just typical Michigan weather and is always changing. The plus side is that campus is not huge so you can make it to your classes easily and weather is not a huge factor.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: There are not always enough parking spots available. The permits are fairly cheap but I do not think they actually go around and check to see if every car has the tag in the window. Other than that the parking lot it in very nice condition.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining hall food is not great, but they always have a salad bar, sandwich station, and fruit, so you don't have to leave hungry. You also receive $100 flex dollars per semester which can be used at the cafe, which offers a small selection of pretty good food and drinks. The dining hall staff is really friendly and does their best to suit everyone's needs, even having a long discussion with me about what can be done to make life easier for vegans and vegetarians on campus. There are lots of really great restaurants near by, in a wide range of prices.

College Freshman

Transportation: The campus does not have a shuttle or transportation system because it is so small. You can walk at a leisurely pace from one end of campus to the other in around 7 minutes. The trail behind campus leads to downtown which is really nice. There is a grocery and small strip mall directly across the street. Most things are within easy walking distance, but nearly everything you could need is within biking distance.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Getting scholarships was pretty easy and the staff was very up front about how much I would be getting. However, you really need to stay on top of FAFSA documents, because I have had a few times where documents that the school needed were missing and they did not notify me.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our athletics at Rochester College are decent. Our men's basketball team is probably our best athletic team at our school. This past year they won the National Championship for the USCAA. I must say that they are pretty good. We have good fan support at our games as well as school spirit.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: The facilities at Rochester College are pretty good. We have a student center where most of our students hang out and play pool or just talk and have a good time. Also we have a gym where our sports teams practice in and where intramurals have games in. The gym is a really good place for our teams to hold practices in.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have a great Basketball team and there is some involvement. Games are played outside of campus. We do have a Baseball team that my brother plays on. During home games, students will watch between classes if they can. We have a good school spirit. Being a small school, we don't have a basketball facility so the team uses a beautiful facility at the local high school. It can be difficult to attent baseball games because they are played betwen 1-3pm, during most classes.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Since there are students from all economic area, no one judges anyone that I have heard, about clothes or looks. Most of the students have parents that have worked very hard to send them to this private college and no one really needs to proove anything. Dress code is everything from wearing your pajama pants to class to wearing a nice pair of jeans and a sweater and doing hair and makeup. Most of the students are clean cut to some wearing dreads and doing their "own thing". It is a great diverse group of students.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have had no problems with my dorm, car or other areas of campus.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: During the week most students are studying. I usually work on the weekends at home, so I am not on campus but only a couple of weekends a year. There is plenty of things to do off campus. Usually parties at students off campus locations.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my program. It is a difficult program and I need to be serious about my studying and exam grades. The workload can be intense with a lot of information to absorb, but when dealing with medical professions, I need to learn them in a short amout of time. Not too much time to have fun, but that is ok since I feel that the job opportunities when I graduate will be plenty.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: We have international students as well as students from pratically every ethnic and racial class. Everyone is equal and we all have a blast. It is so comfortable, that we can joke (in a very good way) about some student's food choices or verbage.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Since this is a Private Christian School, there is a strict policy regarding to drinking, drugs and any offenses that may put the school in a bad light. The rules are very enforced if you are in sports. All students that play in sports sit in the front row, have strict rules about getting their assignments when away traveling at games. If you do drink, off campus is the only place to do it. They have a relaxed policy on dress codes, tattoos etc. You will get kicked of the sports team if in violation. No drinking parties on campus will be tolerated.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Rochester College has a great campus feel. Although it is a small campus, there are may areas to hangout. There is an activities center, a juice bar, a few study areas as well as a common area in each dorm building. The library is a great quiet place to study. There are also rooms available for group studies. There are tutor labs available. There are a few organizations to join, but not as many as at the larger schools. But if you can organize more that 2 people, you can organize a club of your choice. Because of a 18credit semesters, I do not currently belong to any club. But my roommate does and she has a blast.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: There are no permit fees. We do have to register our cars. Most students commute and some students have cars. I have a car and it is very handy. No trouble finding a parking spot.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I started out with a nursing program at the Community College, so most of my credits did not transfer. But I am not in the Physician Assistant program and I love it. The education I am getting should provide me with many opportunites for obtaining a job after graduation while getting my Masters degree.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: This financial aid office is better than my community college. They have assigned a specific person to me that I can contact anytime with any questions that I may have. I always have a contact person. Also, last sememster they found a book voucher that I qualified for and gave it to me.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The academic programs are in line to help transfer you to Oakland University a few miles away for Masters or higher education levels. The freshman dorm have a curfew system, while the other dorms do not. While there are places outside of the dorm to study in library or study rooms for groups, the social scene is as much as you want. There are areas on campus for watching tv, etc. We have a great sports program that allows us to watch some great games. Because of the small size (approx 1200) it is geared for academics , but fun is available.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There was no application process for me to get into my program. My advisor assists me each semester with my classes so I don't take anything that I don't need or out of order. In my interview for admissions, they stress that they are looking for strong students who are committed to their education as well as following a Christian lifestyle. They have an average dress code, conduct policy that you would find in most Colleges and Universities.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: This is a Christian school. Although some drug and alcohol activity is possible, due to strick campus policies, it is not in the open and most takes place off campus. It is not in the forefront of activies and therefore, not a distraction from studying.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: We have wireless access. The school offers either a Mac Book or I Pad for students coming to the schools. I know that certain exceptions apply, so most of us on campus have their own computers and I don't really rely on the schools labs or printers.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather in Michigan is always changing. It absorbs the 4 seasons, sometimes in one week. Because of the small campus area, it is easy to walk through even in the toughest weather. Parking is all around and close to your buildings. Cafe and eating areas are also close by.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My major in Heath Sciences/Physicians Assistant program is the main reason for me attending this school. The PA programs are not availble in most Colleges and universities in my state. This is the only small school that offers this program. All of the classes necessary to obtaining a degree is at this school. Although I will need to go elsewhere for my Masters, there is a major hospital (within 2 miles) as well as another University that has my master's program. I would love to stay in this area and explore options for internships and employment.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I transferred to Rochester College from the local Community College. They had my degree program. I found that the small school environment as well as the smaller class sizes fit my needs perfectly. The course advisors, tutors, availability of assistance from the professors are exceptional. It is a very comfortable campus that has everything I need in a small package. The professors know your name, your major program and one on one contact if needed is a plus for me to become the best student I can be for achieving my degree goal.
