It's a very warm and welcoming school! They do their best to give you the housing you want and the roommate you want. Their professors and outstanding and actually get to know their students on a personal base.

One great advantage of choosing a small private college like St. Rose, is the small class size. The students have the opportunity to get to know their professors and vice versa. This is a great thing when students need recommendations or help with anything such as applying for grad school. Another advantage of a small school is always seeing a familiar friendly face. A trip to the library,cafeteria or Starbucks will always include running into a friend with a smile.

I haven't yet started but I can already tell that this is an institute where they care more about your comprehension of your major than just you passing the tests and getting a good grade. Professors actually take the time to get to know you personally and are more than willing to give you what you need. This in addition to all the campus life that the school has really gives you an at home feeling.
