3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Well it's was new experience

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus crime consists of kids breaking side mirrors off of cars, getting drunk and destroying property and ripping up signs in residence halls. It's a "dry" campus, so the alcohol scene is kept very hush hush, but is nothing insane. Usually just students enjoying a drink and movie/game with friends, nothing crazy at all. I have had to close the library after midnight numerous times and felt completely same walking across campus by myself at night. Our "rent a cops" though could be improved. They are all dilapidated, older gentlemen that could NOT hurt anything that came at them. I'd be more scared for the officers safety than my own because they are all overweight old men. The school does have little call boxes all over that connect directly to public safety though so that's helpful in case of an emergency. There is little to no way to monitor who gets into/out of dorms and school buildings and at the times that I notice it, I get a bit paranoid, but I wouldn't expect problems here. It's a very rich area.

Overall Experience: Overall, this place is a pretty decent school. It's small, has had funding problems over it's only 53 years of service, but it is a decent school. It is best known for it's Nursing and Graphics programs. I am a science major and must say that our building is extremely neglected. The building facilities are terrible, the set up of classrooms are not efficient and no longer accommodate the influx of students the past few years. We must rely on the graciousness of local chemical plants and labs to donate their old equipment to us. Our professors in the science department are fantastic though; each one of them makes due with what we have and they all have very interesting courses and lab materials. In regards to my time with criminal justice, English and art classes, the school is also very wonderful in those departments as well. Class sizes, classes offered and how they are taught have all been fantastic. Not the best, but considering this place's history , I'm happy with my experience thus far.

Overall Experience: I am currently applying to internships and feel I have a low chance of getting ANY of the numerous ones that I applied to. We don't have much of an opportunity for research at this school and for the few students that DO get to do research, I feel much favoritism is involved in hand picking those students (not that I feel I could handle the extra work MYSELF at the moment. I know plenty of students who SHOULD be given the opportunity, but never are though. It's a bit frustrating). I am pretty much relying on my lack luster grades and leadership and work experience to get me a spot as an intern. After graduation, I am still on the fence if I want to just get a job or continue schooling. My reason for adding a second major of Chemistry with my Forensic Biology is because this school has higher job placement rates for chemistry majors; the biologists usually try to get into graduate school or scrape around for a year or two looking for a job. I need to find employment immediately and adding a major is what will make me more marketable. I plan on becoming acquainted with the career center ladies by the end of the semester.

Greek Life: I am part of Zeta Alpha Pi, which is a science sorority. I know there is also a group for the Criminal Justice majors as well as English and Psychology. There was a National Leadership Society added just last year, but I have not seen them out and about in the community too much. This school is only 53 years old and we don't have large Greek presence at all; no houses, wacky traditions, or inductions or anything. The school is rapidly increasing it's size each academic year and is looking to expand to a University soon so I would expect to see a surge in Greek life with an influx of students.

Athletics: We don't have football, but we do have men and women's basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball, lacrosse, and cross country. The most attended events are men and women's basket ball by far; the girls frequently make playoffs so once they've acquire a spot, student attendance sky rockets. As for the other sports, most students simply know of their existence, but don't go to meets/games. School spirit is pretty high I would say; if basketball or baseball make it to playoffs, you can easily tell by the way kids are acting and the support shirts they wear. For facilities, we only have a gym with a basketball court, lifting areas, and field for softball and one for baseball. I have only ever attended a basketball game and the gym is quite nice. We recently renovated the baseball area so I would figure that looks better than it DID.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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.

Athletics: For a Division 3 school the school focuses on certain popular sports which has a big fan base. The smaller sports like cross country do not have a big fan base or a desire to do.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At La Roche College, there is so much to do whether it is on what classes you can do, what activities you can do, and everyone is very friendly

Health & Safety: Public safety is constantly driving around campus at all hours of the day and night and there is always somebody sitting in the public safety office. They are also always available by call and they constantly walk around the dorm buildings.

Greek Life: Greek life is not relevant on our campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I play on the women's soccer team and the experience has been great. The facilities are all new and the school supports us as players and as a team.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I come from a small high school where everybody knows everybody and I attend a smaller college now as well, so the transition was very smooth. I also like how the class sizes are small and the teachers know the students by name.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I don't see lot of athletic things for an international student to do so I can't say anything in particular about it.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Especially for a Catholic we take alcohol and sexual assaults to a great deal. We even have party about sexual assaults, we're we learn about alcohol and assaults then eat pizza and get to know everyone in the room.

Campus Housing: Life on campus is great despite the possible outburst with a roommate now and again. I like to live on campus because i can more easily focus on my homework and do not have to worry about bad weather. Also i feel i get the college experience and have made more friendships due to living on campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

La Roche is a small campus, but it has plenty of resources. With a library full of books and a spacious student union area, there's something for everyone. The teachers and students here have a very personal connection, and everybody knows your name. To most students, this is what their ideal college is all about. However, La Roche is very expensive and doesn't offer many of the things that larger schools have—Greek life, an on-campus health clinic, 24-hour dining services, and campus bars and restaurants to name a few—which turns a lot of people away from this beautiful campus. It would be hard for someone at La Roche to go their entire career without meeting someone from the other side of the world. La Roche's international students set it apart from other schools. The people make this college. From the students, traditional and non-traditional, to the college activities directors who will be at every function dancing and partying with students, everyone is friendly. The president of the college can even be found eating in the dining hall with students a couple times a week.

Location, location, location. La Roche isn't too far from anything. McKnight Road has any store you could ever dream of, and the mall, airport, and movies are within driving distance. The hospital is within walking distance. The hilly campus is very green in the spring and summer, and is always full of colorful flowers. People who attend La Roche for the duration of their college years seem to be extremely happy with the end result. A high job placement rate, personal attention, and close bonds with classmates make four years here incredibly satisfying.
