Overall, I have come to love the University of Rochester. Their open-curriculum allows you to use intrinsic motivation to decide your true passion for a college major. Our diversity will allow you to meet people from all walks of life, and allow you to see the world with multiple different perspectives. We place high value on our efforts for social justice, and we are a very politically involved school. You will learn to care about the world more than ever after attending the UR for four years.

I am currently in my 2nd year at U of R. I really like the open curriculum, the fact that the school doesn't require students to take general education class with the exception of one writing class. The school has a lot of tutoring services and staff that are willing to help their students. I haven't had any issues with my professors and I hope I won't have to. The campus is generally saving and clean. I love the diversity in the school.
