3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of options of places to eat off-campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food in the dining hall has a lot of options, but if there isn't something that i can eat without being sick, panini sandwiches can get old pretty fast. The red hawk cafe has pretty decent food, but the hours could be better later in the week.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had a great time here, and most of my favorite experiences have happened in the class room where I have had a "lightbulb, I got it!" moments with the friends Ive come to know and love in the same major as me.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am a graphic design major, and I love it. The work load is on the heavy side but the staff and facility that is here on campus is fantastic. I love my professors and classes, and also get along with all the other freshman designers. It is a wonderful place to learn the ropes and be pushed to succeed in the field with gaining professional experience throughout all four years.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I do plan to have one because I believe that it will shine some more light on what i want to do with the rest of my life. There doesn't seem to be many problems with students and finding internships.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had very few problems with anything coarse or professors wise.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: As a freshman I don't feel as I have explored this enough to rate it.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I'm taken and I really associate mainly with the same big group of people everyday. Though a lot of the guys wear sweats and i can see their boxers. That's gross.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I love this campus! It is close to but still far enough from the city for me. The food and library could use some more variety but that is just small compared to how much I enjoy my classes professors for english and graphic design.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am in one of the biggest programs in La Roche. The graphic design program is awesome. Everyone is fantastic and friendly, staff and students alike.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: I'm bias. I love Pittsburgh. It's one of my favorite cities I've visited.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: It's very diverse, which is great to me. Not recommended for someone who is, sadly, racist.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have greek sororities or fraternities like on any big 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.
