3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Nice facilities. Not much school spirit/support at varsity games

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not too many people go out but when they do it is a frat party on the weekends. Compared to big schools like Cuse or FSU our party scene is a joke.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are few frat parties and bar nights and compared to bigger schools the parties suck.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The classes are extremely difficult and require a lot of work put into them. The professors teach decently and as a student you need to be on top of everything to do well. It teaches you to be responsible for what your grades are.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: From what I have seen most people are accepting of everyone. We have a lot of foreign students so it isn't like there are few ethnicities on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Only certain types of people use drugs. Greek life does sometimes and same with some sports teams. Most people just smoke weed and drink while those who do drugs do all kinds of them.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great professors that are actively involved in their field of expertise.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most seniors i have met end up finding jobs right out of school or internships.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The student safety officers are always around ready to help.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is good but I have seen better on campus living.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have crazy parties but there is some partying on campus with Greek life.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the campus, the people, and the overall atmosphere of the school.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If you never join Greek life odds are you won't see a difference in your community/campus life. If you do join up you will find yourself around other Greeks much more and it's a very good community but it won't take over your social life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's not an overshadowing or overpowering presence on campus but it's there and it's high quality for being a D-3 school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: After only my freshman year my school has been amazing to me. I had my own personal struggles and the support system my university has created helped me persevere and move onward and upward effectively.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall, I am pleased I go here.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Alumni from all around the country. Networking is great.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: We NEED better security on campus. We need armed security.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's great, just very expensive.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I am personally not a fan of Greek Life but a lot of people are.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Average. School pays no money for athletics.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The academics at this school are top notch. The professors truly are professionals in their fields.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It was a hard adjustment academically and socially. I struggled in both aspects my first semester, but after I found the right people and figured out what I needed to do to improve, my entire experience improved drastically. Totally worth it.

Health & Safety: Public Safety does an excellent job of keeping students safe and are always immediately available. Students should exercise caution when walking around certain neighborhoods, particularly at night.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students are enamored with the school and overlook its faults-they are faults common to many universities and are easily balanced out by its many excellent qualities. The strong suits of academics and atmosphere make UR a perfect fit for a lot of people. Some stumble into the school by chance and end up loving it, never imagining themselves anywhere else. Others, especially locals, know of UR's reputation and fully planned on enrolling. All agree, though, that the environment and the people are all one could ask for in a college.

Even if it takes a while to adjust and find your niche, once you do, you will easily fall in love with the school. Beyond the food and small inconveniences, UR comes out ahead for student approval. The student body as a whole is intelligent and ambitious, and the faculty are talented and welcoming. You will not find acts of sabotage or students scratching at each other's throats to get a better grade than someone else. UR students are independent and capable; the only competition is against yourself. You will learn things and make friendships that will last a lifetime. Rochester itself also provides an interesting melting pot, and if you look, you will never run out of places to go or things to do. It's not Boston or New York City, but it has its high points. The fall colors, that upstate accent, and the classic food joints will become endearing
once it is a part of your life. The weather can get you down, and the classes may seem unending and tough, but if you take a step back, you'll realize you're glad to go to UR and it has become home.
