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 The interior of the buildings look extremely old and outdated its embarrassing.The sports games are great to be a part of because we are known for our great soccer team!

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.

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!

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

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.
