La Roche University Reviews
One thing I would like to see a change in though would have to be the lack of acknowledgement/ general lack of elevators in the building. There are at least a few that I know about on campus, but, as someone with balance issues as well ell as having peers with physical disabilities hat impair their walking, it does seem at times very stressful.
