If you go for a random roommate selection, there aren't a lot of personal questions asked. Sometimes you get really lucky, other times you don't. Other than that, this school is incredible! There are so many opportunities to study abroad, take internships in other parts of the country, and to gain transferrable skills through work-study and non-work-study employment. Plus, all of the professors get to know you really well, even if you don't go to office hours.

Being a second-year student I can tell you that Nazareth College is an amazing and ideal institution, especially for the "homebody" type of individual.The environment around campus is also quite small so, this ensures safety. While all at the same time the city of Rochester gives you a big city atmosphere feel, but you can still find your way around, finding many activists to do. Academics here are are one of the greatest in NYS. Consisting of a small student to teacher ratio, allowing students to achieve the best possible and personal attention in a classroom setting. Also, the athletics here are competitive and fun! However, if your one who doesn't want to feel like they're stuck in high school... Meaning you dint always want to see the same faces and know everyone in every class, i'd say this isn't the school for you.
Nazareth has become a home away from home for me! I had a difficult academic semester but fared well ending with a 3.7; the hard work and class atttendance paid off. I enjoy the commnuity feeling of the campus and the surrounding areas of Rochester are welcoming to the students. I also have found that I enjoy the fact that the school offers variety and diversity. I beleive that the school is dedicated to their students' "wholeness, health, and overall well being". It is not ALL about your academic success but your overall growth along with personal maturity and life preparation. The advisors are truly dedicated to insuring you are on the right path and advise instead of tell.
I am thoroughly enjoying my studies, campus life, community programs and clubs, as well as the on campus activities.
I am grateful to be part of the Nazareth family.
