At first, I was very unsure of whether I would be happy at La Roche or not. All of my friends at the time were applying and going into bigger schools so I felt like I was not achieving enough. However, when I got to La Roche, I knew it would be home. Even though the school is on the smaller side, I enjoy the smaller classes and how the professor gives one on one attention to each student. Also, the campus feels very safe compared to a big city campus and even if I have later classes I know I will be safe walking. La Roche also has so many different opportunities available such as the travel abroad program which is amazing. You are allowed to study abroad at virtually no cost since everything is included in you tuition!

La Roche may seem like a tiny dot on a map to some, but La Roche college has so many things to offer to students and I am proud to be a part of it! The school has many clubs for students to join which range from doing many different things. One great thing that La Roche offers to students which other schools don't is the chance to study abroad. What is special about the study abroad opportunities at La Roche doesn't have you pay extra money for the trip. When paying for tuition, study abroad is included in that which makes it impossible to pass up!
I loved the professors here, they really cared about your success! Sometimes it was difficult to get financial answers or answers from a few professors.
