The higher education experience I received at Roberts was excellent. Through my major, Roberts equipped me with unique hands on experience that has made me competitive in the workforce. The classroom sizes are small, the buildings have all been recently renovated, athletics are evolving, it is completely safe, programs are innovative, it is located 15 minutes from downtown Rochester NY and the relationships are strong. President Deanna Porterfield is a true visionary holding to the roots of Roberts 150 year history. I am proud to be a member of the Roberts Wesleyan community.
Review Roberts Wesleyan College
Roberts Wesleyan has many pros and cons, like all schools do. The religious aspect make individuals very close minded and even judgmental. Social life can be a struggle at this college if you can not find your "click" due to its small size. On the contrary, the small size makes for great class sizes and academic privileges. Your professors will know your name and your struggles which leads to wonderful professional relationships. Overall, Roberts Wesleyan is not for all but can be great for your academic knowledge...which is what you are there paying tons of money for.
There are many international students. However, Roberts has a racist climate! Also, not a non-traditional/commuter friendly school.
