La Roche is a great college. All of the students that attend are diverse and unique. Many students are international so it's great to get to know and learn about their cultures.

As a Forensic Biology & Chemistry major, I frequently question "why" I picked this school, but the place is growing on me. It's hard to, at first, get used to HOW diverse the school is and the very small class sizes (classes are as large or smaller than my own high school's). I came to really appreciate the class sizes though and it's nice that my teachers know me very well on a more personal level. I feel I am able to ask more questions and get more individualized help if needed. With the diversity, it was a bit awkward and uneasy when dealing with SO many international students, but as I've gone through more courses and worked at various places on campus, I've run into many wonderful kids and adults from all over the planet. Overall, this place isn't all that bad.
