4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: However I have to work hard to maintain a good gpa, if not my scholarship and financial aid might get taken away.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: In my opinion, the people at my school don't really put their physical appearance as a main priority. What I do see is hardworking students carrying textbooks around.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Nurse program is the best

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: College has a lot of amenities

Facilities: Need to give higher scholarship

Campus Housing: Housing at The College of New Rochelle is at best, OK. The facilities are decent but the buildings are old and have no AC so if you need that, you're in trouble. the school of arts and sciences is not co-ed and that is what makes up 95% of the school. being that the nursing program is also in the New Rochelle site boys do have an option to live on campus (first floor of Ursula) but there have been no boys this year and only one boy last year. Because the school itself is catholic males are not allowed to spend the night. A person can not sign in more than three guests at a time unless they have talked to a higher up and gotten it approved. minors are not allowed up into the dorms ( this becomes annoying with little siblings your parents cant leave behind) the bathrooms are communal and cleaned once a day Monday-Friday. In Ursula there is a kitchen on the 2nd, 3rd and basement floor and a lounge on every floor. if you need a male to stay over night you can rent a room for 23$ a night the only catch is that your not allowed to stay with them. ( we do most of the time anyway but alot of girls complain about worrying about being caught so its usually a restless sleep at that.) Glad to say no real bug issues. but another major annoying thing is that the walls are paper thin and if someone is having a party upstairs you can hear them till they decide to turn in. guests have to be signed in after 11 AM and signed out at 12 AM on week nights and 2:30 AM on weekends. the rooms in Ursula are big but you cant have a single bedroom unless your room mate does not show up. they threaten consolidation but I've never seen it implicated. Over all you get stressed out but its not terrible. If you make friends its a really chill atmosphere where you can lounge out with the girls and watch TV and talk about whatever.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to eat off-campus since New Roc (an entertainment complex) is on Main St. There's Buffalo Wild Wings, Applebees, lots of FroYo places, Chinese, sushi, pizza, Mexican, etc. A lot of places deliver too.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The printing is free on campus. There are computers in the computer lab and in the library. It's very easy to get a computer. The library also allows students to take out a laptop while in the library. The art students get access to the Mac Lab.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I hate dealing with financial aid, but I'm sure it's like that at any school. It pays off though. Financial aid packages are one of the main reasons students picked this school over others, so it seems to be worth it.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm a psychology major. It was very easy to get into the program.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The psych professors are great. They are very up-to-date in their fields and some of them are doing research. There's quite a few adjuncts too. They are usually pretty decent. The program is laid out pretty basically. You have to take the major requirements and then 7-9 electives in psychology. A few psychology majors went to a conference out in Ohio this past year with faculty too.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's an all-girls school so there aren't really parties on campus, or boys really, for that matter. The security keeps us safe and we don't have much to worry about. They are always driving around on campus and at the front where all the cars and people come into the school.

At school dances there are always a lot of security guards and everyone gets patted down and a metal detector ran over them. The IDs of everyone are scanned too. Sometimes it seems like a bit much, but it's always better to be safe.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is one sorority on campus that I know of. Greek life is not recognized by the school either. There's not a lot of people in the sorority and it's basically underground.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is pretty average. If you don't live on campus it's overpriced, but the residents have a meal plan so we always have money for food. The Starbucks on campus is the best. The people that work in the caf make it so much better. They know almost everyone's name and joke around with you a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Brescia is the oldest and biggest hall. The rooms tend to be a little smaller there. Ursula and Angela are newer and have more of a university feel. Angela has suite style living too. In Ursula there are the living-learning communities, which get special tech rooms and study rooms. They also have really nice kitchens and a big lounge in the basement that was just renovated. They also have a pool table in Ursula.

It is pretty easy to get what room you want for the lottery. It goes by credits. You can pick your roommate and room too.

The campus isn't that lively on the weekends, but it's been getting better. On the weekdays there are a lot of people around sitting in the lounge and cooking. There are no guys that live on campus so it's nice not to worry about what you wear.

Athletics: The volleyball and basketball team are great. A lot of people go to their games and they both won their conference this year. The other teams are alright.

The Wellness Center is beautiful. It's the newest building on campus. There is a gymnasium with a suspended track, a fitness room, pool, meditation room, meeting rooms, and locker rooms. We don't have tennis courts or a softball field, so the school rents out local ones for practice and home games.

Nightlife: There are two other colleges in New Rochelle so it is pretty easy to find a party. Main street is mostly dive bars and there are a couple clubs in the area. We are about a 25 minute train ride into the city so finding a club or bar to go to on a weekend is easy.

Diversity: The school is extremely diverse in its ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, and religion. Because it is an all-girls school, people are very accepting of everyone. It's also very liberal so students feel comfortable voicing their beliefs. The faculty and staff are also very accepting and encouraging. Even campus ministry has a wide range of religions in it, not just Catholic. It is definitely different from other Catholic institutions.

Transportation: The school just started a shuttle that transports students to and from the metro north train station every 30 minutes. It runs in the mornings and at night. It saves the mile walk that is sometimes pretty cold.

We have a lot of commuters that come to our school, as far as Brooklyn. They usually take the train and then the shuttle. There are several city buses that run close by to the campus too. Taxis are very easy to find and a taxi ride to the train station is about $5.

The school also has housing for commuter students that is $26 per night. They can stay there if it is bad weather or they have a big test the next morning. It is a great resource for a lot of the commuters.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The school is 90% girls, so there are very few guys on campus. Since there are no guys on campus, a lot of girls let their guard down. The girls are much friendlier than typical colleges and everyone is more laid back, which is nice, especially in the classroom setting. We feel more confident speaking out in class and sharing our opinion.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We are a non-Greek school. We are an catholic college.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Well off campus dining is okay in New York City. It is very diverse with the different type of restaurants because of many cultures in New York City. New York City is the melting pot and the most diverse city that I know of.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The cost of living in New York State is too high and a lot of people are trying to manage staying in college.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Recently in New York City our campus had to be close due to snow storms and all the students are alerted if the school is closed. However, New York City are the best when it comes to the safety or people and the students when a storm happens.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus strictness at my school about the policies affecting us academic wise or socially is okay. It very quiet in the campus.
