4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is very little crime on campus. People feel comfortable leaving their belongings in the union lobby or at study tables and walking away. There was a theft problem earlier this year but it was handled and the student was expelled. We try to have an open door policy. As a girl, I feel safy walking across campus alone in the dark.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are small class sizes and most are conducted in a lecture fashion. For a small specialised school I think we have a good variety of courses.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have three yearly career fairs and a great career services team, all to help students get jobs and internships. One of the things that attract students is the job outlook after graduating. The Rose-Hulman name is attractive to employers.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I like the housing. You get close to those near you. As a freshman, you get sophomore advisors in addition to your RA. These students help plan more fun activities for you to do as a Res Hall. The rooms are a bit small, but it's college, what to you expect? A housekeeper comes through once a week and changes your sheets. Getting assigned housing is easy, you just fill out the survey where you specify your first and second choice Res Halls and there is a second where you can request a lake view or what floor. As a freshman there was no long questionnaire, just a second to put whatever information you want to help them assign the roommates, which I thought was weird at the time but it worked out well.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life on campus is great. Most people in them are nice and the parties are what you'd expect. As someone who just recently became greek, before I was pretty indifferent to those who had chosen to go greek. I just personally thought it wasn't for me. But then one of the sororities nicely asked me to go through recruitment and now I'm Greek. The sororities each have an apartment in Skinner and one of them has another on campus apartment. Three of the frats have on campus houses with the others not being too far away.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: You don't go to Rose-Hulman for athletics. If you want to be an engineer and do d3 level sports then it's a good fit. But if Athletics are really important to you it's not the best fit. Students love to go out and support our teams and intramurals are a big part of campus life. Most of our teams do fairly well, but they are division 3.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the school and think it is a great fit for me. I like the small campus and the small class sizes. I like how professors I had for one quarter last year still know my name and say hi to me. I like how easy it is to get help, either from tutors or people in your classes. Almost everyone there is in engineering and we all understand how hard and busy everyone is. And that's the thing, it is hard. The classes and workload are hard but it can be done.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Pub Safe is always on the look out as well as RA's and SA's and the entire campus nothing gets through unnoticed.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class size on average is maybe 30, I came form a small school and it feels the same. I have had some visiting professors who expect us to already know the topics. My advice is try to get the tenured professors and talk to your SA's and RA for advice on profs. The classes are challenging but are helpful for future courses. You're also almost guaranteed a job coming out 98% job placement. Be ready to work hard and study harder and you'll be fine.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 3 job fairs a year help place at least 50% of freshmen into internships if you're an upperclassmen the odds are in your favor. 98% job placement by graduation and average salary of $68,000 says enough by itself.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Speed Hall and Deming don't have air conditioning which is really important the first few moths of the quarter. But these are also the all guys dorms that are by far the bro-est of them all. The open door policy is awesome for chilling with guys in the hall, and almost everyone is social even the the league players.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: All fraternities are equal just have to find the one you fit into there are plenty of options.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our Intramural fields are better than all the football fields I've played on. We also have an indoor and outdoor track and the recreation center is massive and updated.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Make sure to get the right professors, try to avoid visiting profs as they don't have the best experiences teaching and can't convey the material as well as the tenured professors. Rose- Hulman is great environment and atmosphere for social life and has several greek options. There are also several events put on by the organizations of Rose, but not much free time from studying.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the family feeling. Everyone is friendly and open.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The people here are the reason I was able to survive my first year. They are so nice. Most of the professors are also wonderful. I definitely love that it's a small school because you get to interact with your professors more, and they know your name.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The people at Rose are what make it a special place. Students are friendly and there is a definitive collaborative spirit that runs free on campus. The teachers genuinely want to help students. Close relationships can be formed because of the small style environment. The education is top notch and requires a lot of hard work. But I wouldn't have it any other way!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The student body is welcoming and inviting, and making friends is easy, which is useful given I was the only person going to Rose from my high school. The courses are tough, but the professors are friendly and willing to provide one-on-one help constantly. There are many extracurriculars available, and the floors within the dorm rooms become close-knit communities, providing much-needed support. The college is nationally recognized as excellent, making internships easily available, and reduces stress about finding a job after graduation. The material covered in class is engaging and challenging, and achieving academic excellence has an extra level of satisfaction and reward. Overall, the college is fantastic.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Rose has a very close family community. The courses are extremely difficult, but every wants to work together, professors included, to see each other succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While the classes are hard, it has been fun.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I think the campus strictness is just right. They stress no drugs and stealing and other things like that but they don't really get in the way of the whole college experience.

Scholarships: The people in the financial aid department are absolute angels! They really work with you, and if you need more money, tell them. They will do anything in their power to help you out and award you more aid if you really need it. The staff is just wonderful and the reason why I even chose Rose. They try to make it as affordable as possible.

Campus Food: Honestly, the food isn't up to par with any standards, especially considering how much it costs to go to the school. There aren't a lot of options and choices on campus. I'd rather go out and eat, but that costs so much more.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's not that great, but it's better than nothing. We get house keeping once a week, and that's actually nicer that I thought. The rooms could be a bit small, but I've actually seen smaller going to other schools. I like the family atmosphere here, we have an 'open door policy' and people trust each other, which I really like,

Off-Campus Dining: Hard to get to if you do not have a car, so I am not really familiar with it. Also, I am not vegetarian/ looking for organic food, or late night options, so i am not sure how that all goes.
