4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Lots of space; great facilities. Bathrooms tend to get messy, but that will always happen when you have 30-120 people sharing two bathrooms.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: In general, Greek life serves a beneficial social purpose, but doesn't contribute much back to the campus or community.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not the school I would come to solely for the purpose of becoming a better athlete. Athletics are well invested in, but not as important or popular as they are at big state schools.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Incredibly rigorous, but exceptionally rewarding. It's not easy to get an A here, but you will certainly receive a thorough and comprehensive education in whatever field of study you pursue.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Many of the more fundamental science courses have a large class size, making it easy to make friends and find people to study with, while slightly harder to receive support from TAs and the professors. Still, the course variety is fantastic, and all of the professors have a very solid knowledge base in the courses that they teach.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career center is very knowledgeable, able to help students with creating a resume and connecting students with potential job opportunities. I have had a job on campus since my freshman fall semester, and it is definitely easy to get involved in certain job areas on campus, while harder to find things like research/internships.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Crime on campus itself is very low, and public safety is never far away and can be called at any time. The majority of crime occurs just off campus, which is often unrelated to student life, and public safety notifies students whenever something happens in the nearby community.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The options for freshman and sophomores are pretty standard, but juniors and seniors have the option to live in Riverview or Brooks Crossing apartments which I think is fantastic. The buses make these options just as convenient as living in a dorm right on the River campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am an ex-member of a sorority, so from both sides I would say that greek life definitely good socially for someone who enjoys going out, but the financial aspect and the academic distraction makes it difficult. One must really know their priorities.

4 College Junior

Athletics: There are a variety of sports, from football to tennis to quiddich, available at the club, intramural and varsity level, and it is relatively easy to get involved at the commitment level desired.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: School has been challenging, and although my grades have not been quite at the level I would like, I am genuinely interested in the content of my classes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I wish the course load was less over-bearing.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I hope to get a good internship next summer.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Large Fraternity quad and large sorority life.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The health services are always available. When I needed to go for blood work and my PPD, staff was very accomodating and helpful. I feel safe when walking alone around campus, even at night around the parking lot. Always can see security cars driving around areas.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Since the program started the instructors are giving us advice about the NCLEX, tips and ideas to develop, putting resources in our hands to understand the amazing future we have in front of us. Although Strong hospital hires the majority of the graduates from our school there are a lot of peers ready to bring to their home states all the skills and knowledge that have been accumulating and learning. The career center staff are ready to help you with resume, tips and training for interviews, it is excellent.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I personally don't live in school housing but have an opinion according to stories from classmates that live in both student buidlings. They enjoy their neighbors, housekeeping does a good job keeping common areas clean, and parking areas are safe.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't really have a lot of experience with Greek life, living in the area and working part-time whenever I have some spare time.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Our program doesn't focus in sports

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: For my experience in different schools here and even in other countries, I'm happy to say that I'm fully satisfied with SON at University of Rochester because just stepping inside the building I feel this joy vibe, classmates from our cohort are becoming friends really easy and from other cohorts are very helpful and always ready to answer questions about the school process. The instructors really follow their open door policy for any question or concern. They are offering guidance during the whole day, even in the halls when not teaching, they seat with me and talk,the Dean walks around and she say hi addressing me by my first name I mean the Dean, we are a big family. I enjoy every day I go. Alaways something new to learn, always something new to share. I'm extremely happy I decided to go to this school, my new home.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a freshman I mainly had large lectures and hit or miss professors. I had a couple who were absolutely fantastic quite a few that were pretty unfair. Tests seem very hard compared to level of difficulty of homeworks and workshops.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school has a strong alumni network, brings people into career fairs, and also offers a good amount of on campus opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Everyone looks out for each other.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is fine, it is just very overpriced. During the week there is a daily cleaning in freshman dorms though which is nice.

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.
