4 College Senior

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

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.

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 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.

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.
