4 College Freshman

Athletics: I had my fair share of the athletic department. They do the best they can to cover all the sports due to budget cuts the money for giving scholarships are real tight. Maybe there should be a better process for giving out scholarships?

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think I would have been better off financially going to a suny. The campus is small so you meet and get to know people faster. I can say this school has become a home to me. Being apart of a sports team has been a real delight I will make friends that will last a life time. The only down side would have to be the affordability for me.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security is always walking around the quad and there are blue emergency lights all along the campus. Buildings somewhat easy to get into unless it's a freshman dorm. Campus isn't located in the safest of areas.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are good and bad professors. There seems to be a lot professors that are average or aren't that great. Either they don't know how to teach well or they grade unfairly. Class size is pretty small which is nice but trying to get into them is difficult. Not a lot of options.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is expensive and if you live in normal housing you have to have a meal plan. The cleaning crew hardly do their job and the bathrooms are always a mess. Toilets and showers always breaking/clogging. Can barely decorate your room because of strict policies. Lottery system is a mess.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not a lot of courts or areas for physical activites on campus, most require transportation off campus. Sports are a huge deal here, and the athletic center is usually filled by athletes and no room for regular students.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't feel I'm receiving a decent experience for the amount of money I'm paying. A lot of professors aren't very good at teaching even though they are passoniate about the subject. Food is very bad. Forced to pay a meal plan like I'm a child that doesn't know how to cook for myself. Very expensive. Dorms are strict, can barely decorate. Not a lot of opportunities or events going on, and if there are events you barely hear about them.

Campus Housing: It is a Prison Cell, I had more freedom at home and moved off campus after the first year.

Overall Experience: For those thinking about attending, please read carefully. I would entice you to do your research well before making a decision. In my opinion, after attending for two years and then transferring, I did not feel as though the school provided a value education. Meaning, the cost was high for the instruction and education that I took away. Check the school academic ratings, this is very important to employers and graduate schools especially if you don't plan to stay in the area after college.

The school is primarily for those that want to become teachers and for that I would say it is expensive. If you have money to waste and want to become a school teacher one day this could be the place for you.

Further, the school is nestled in the middle of a small city where students can get attacked, robbed, hit by a car, or even worse...just check the local news over the past several years. It is even rated very unstable financially.

Worst and Best Part: Don't live on campus if you do go since they are strict...I am sure you had more freedom at home. The best part for me, which I would not trade was the friends I made.

Most of all I wish you good luck it is a big decision. I just wanted to provide my opinion, as I wish someone did for me. There are many options available, hopefully you choose the most valuable in the long-run.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The College of Saint Rose is quite open, friendly and there to help when needed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The best things I will recognize about the professors at the College of Saint Rose is that they will accept scheduled times with you to speak one on one and help you to their best ability. They are also very understanding and open-minded when presented with outside questions and concerns regarding class topics and general life topics as well.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The life on campus at the College of Saint Rose is like any life on campus. It is easy to get to classes, the houses are well kept, it's just the residents that are a bit difficult to deal with at times.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The College of Saint Rose is more of an academic facility. While providing sports for those who are athletes, they focus more on the liberals and the arts.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The college is great to be at. It's like a home away from home and the professors there are really kind. They take the time to help you when you come to them seeking advice. The dorms are well kept and right next to the college so the walk isn't that long. Their food could be a little bit more diverse but they keep me well fed. Academically, the classes they provide serve each student with the fundamental needs required to graduate. Overall, the College of Saint Rose is a great college.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe walking around campus. I don't hear of much crime.The security office is always open and there are blue emergency lamps set up around campus so if there is an emergency help will come to the location immediately.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Classes for music majors are very in depth and informative. The teachers all know your name and strive for you to do well. Very helpful and qualified. The variety could expand but it has a lot of a small college.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay, could be updated more. I lived on campus my freshman year and my residence hall was very far from the dining hall. Social atmosphere is oaky, somewhat cliquy. The bathrooms are always clean and RAs are nice

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The gym for the most part is relatively small and could use some remodeling. The gym facilities are mostly used for the athletes. Not much is offered for regular students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a sophomore it has been great attending Saint Rose. I like the overall feeling of a tight-knit community and I really enjoy the small class sizes. I don't feel like a number at this institution and I am learning a lot from the professors here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really like the small class sizes and the professors seem dedicated to their craft

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Brubacher Hall is extremely loud and either extremely hot or extremely cold; there is no in between.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health services cant really diagnose anything
