Roberts Wesleyan college is an amazing private Christian college. The campus is small but beautiful and there are a couple of stores nearby. There is an okay amount of diversity and the academics are great from my experience so far. This school isn't for everyone though, it is a Christian so it has very strict rules when it comes to partying and interactions between male and female students. The professors are great and care about their students success. The dorms are nice and are very secure. There are visiting hours for all the dorms. Lastly the the student life is good although very active on the weekend but emails and posters armpit to inform students of the events.

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.
Roberts Wesleyan College is a great college if you are looking for a small campus. The Professors are kind, and they are all much involved in Christ. It is a place to grow spiritually if that is what you would look for in a college. I personally am not spiritually inclined, but that is okay because Roberts accepts anyone and anyone is able to still gain an impressive college experience.
