College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I am not really sure about the drug scene. This is my first semester at RU and I commute so I do not really get into the whole drug or party seen at the college.

College Sophomore

Transportation: There is no transportation besides taxis or public transportation. Either you live on campus and have your car there or you commute and drive your car. Everything on campus is walking distance and does not require transportation unless you need to leave campus to get somewhere.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Being apart of an athletic team on campus I think the athletics here are great. We have great coaches, great gym facilities and not to mention, our fans are the best!

4 College Freshman

Computers: We have three computer labs, which is amazing for a community college. Printing is free amd copying is free or 10 cents per page, depending on which lab you go to. Also our tech support office is extremely helpful .

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: This is my first year, I stay on-campus. So I'm not very sure about this topic, just a few things I've heard from friends and teammates.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The people on campus are very accepting to minorities. Personally, I haven't witness anything that would argue otherwise.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The parking lots hold a decent amount of spaces, its just first come first serve. The lots are also close to the dorms.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Its very unique because there are people who share the same major hang out together and the programs allow students to visits professor's office hours and many tutoring and help opportunities if needed.

4 College Freshman

Academics: For a small community college, there are many hands-on opportunities for students. For example, nursing or pre-med students have a chance to work in the health center. Students with business majors may work in the cafeteria orbusinessuoffice. So wherevere you see an opportunity to get a close experience to what you want to do in the future, you'll get a possible taste here.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There could be more healthy options, as well as later hours.

College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Our campus is very strict on most topics .

College Freshman

Greek Life: Sorry, our university doesn't have and fraternities nor sororities.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Personally, I had the worst experience in the financial aid prices. It seemed like there was always something extra popping up hindering me to complete the process. I got through it however, the tips I'd give is to complete and get everything done early because its extremely stressful still trying to figure out how to pay for college with classes starting around the corner.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls on campus get along well. There are many different styles and personalities that come together. Since most of the guys are friendly and laid back its easy to talk and have fun with us girls because we're the same way. The student population isnt extremely diverse but that never presented a problem. Everyone dresses relaxed, like sweat pants and hoodies. Rarely you'll see people dressed professionally, like the theatre students.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Living near Lake Michigan, the temperatures drop very low and we also get alot of snow, and chilly rain.

Campus Strictness: It is wonderful to have been at a school that was strict when it comes to drug use, underage drinking, and visitations in dorms. I think that school should have order and keep their campus safe. I believe that this is one of the reasons why I felt so safe on campus. The police and safety officers work hard to keep their students safe.

Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: A rating would not be application because this factor should not determine whether you should attend this school or not. If the Lord would like to introduce you to someone so that you can have a courtship with then he will. It is more important to first focus on having a relationship with your Heavenly Father first.

Off-Campus Dining: The campus is located on state street in Rockford, which is the busiest street in Rockford. In fact, it is the street that has the most restaurant on it. The different types of restaurants are sit-down, fast food, buffet, and more. Unfortunately, however, it is rare for a restaurant to distribute discounts to students.

5 Recent Alumnus

Parking: The parking is free. It is close to all of the buildings on campus. Unless you need a vehicle to get to work, there is no need for a car on campus. There is always a parking spot available on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: There are few amenities on campus, which some students believe is a bad thing. And, that is fine. But, I think of it as a good thing, because it allows students to spend time with one another in person. A lot of times, especially now with social media, people do not engage in conversations with one another in a physical presence. The ease of the housing process is wonderful. Students with a higher number of credit hours completed choose housing first. Even so, there is a wide availability of dorm rooms. And, if a student chooses to change dorm rooms, this is welcome.

5 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Because of the campus location, geographically speaking, the campus experiences all seasons of the year. When it is summer, there is a lot of room outside to run around and have fun. But, if a student likes to be indoors and not outside during this weather, the dormitories are cool enough to be inside. The winter season is beautiful because it is located next to a forest so one can see all of the snow on the tree branches. And, often times, students make snowmen while enjoying a day away from classes during a "snowed-in" period.

Campus Dining: The one thing that I do recall regarding Campus Dining is the customer service that the staff members had. Every day they would have a smile on their faces and greet the students. They would ask all students how their day was going, with true sincerity. The woman that cleaned the tables was friendly. The men and women who cooked and served the food did so with such upbeat attitudes. The men and women who washed the dishes would receive my place and be so gracious enough to say, "Have a wonderful day!"

Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: A rating would not be applicable because I did not go to parties, the bar/club scene, or underage nightlife. I believe that it is best to be safe and not attend this types of activities. The campus provides several socialization activities such as sporting games, volunteering, and Christian fellowship group.

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The library is an excellent place to study if you are looking for an extremely quite place. The recreational center is an excellent place to study if you are looking for a loud place to study. Different people have different preference of studying areas, so this campus accommodates both. There is plenty of green space on this campus to run around and play games and feel free. Several days per week there were activities on campus that students could be a part of. There was never a dull week.

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: All of the teachers are the same when it comes to caring for the student. Each teacher, regardless of the department they work in, pays attention to students' achievements or lack thereof. If a student is lagging behind on a subject matter, teachers speak to the students in a respectful manner and help them improve. The teachers have this philosophy that really is admirable in which they believe that every student has a purpose. And, the goal of each teacher is to help the student realize their purpose and help them achieve it, while setting high curriculum standards.
