The police are fine, but the students often get so drunk that they damage property and make fools of themselves. I am fine with lax enforcement of alcohol policies, but they are so unenforced that people get really drunk and run around the dorms breaking things, often with little punishment! It is known that sexual assaults/harassment are not taken all that seriously.

Best decision I've made so far! I've always wanted a work hard-play hard school with top notch academics, a diverse student body, and a welcoming community(great financial aid also). So far I have gotten just that. I'm an international student and the move has been so easy. I can't wait to see what the next 4 years have in store for me :)

Regarding academics, most of the professors at UR are always willing to meet and help during their office hours. However, safety is a whole other issue. Sexual assault is a big thing at the school, whether the reports or unfounded or genuine. Theft and larceny is common in the facilities dorm halls/rooms. Just because UR has a lot of white, rich kids doesn't mean they do not steal. During my first semester I have personally fallen victim to a larceny of my phone with my credit card. Recently, someone on my floor has also stolen a pair of flip flops from my room, possibly as a cruel stunt because I'm the only asian on second floor, or they have no sense of respect for others' belongings, or they were drunk. A lot of the white kids at UR just come here for frat parties and to drink alcohol, which is why I highly encourage students to avoid going outside after midnight because there will be some group of drunk, white frat boys yelling vulgar remarks at you.
