Rochester College Reviews
Academics are great. Professors give you plenty of help. On campus is absolutely terrible. Just finished my first year in the dorms. They are absolutely terrible. Rooms are falling apart, walls are paper thin and can hear EVERYTHING. The wifi cuts in and out all the time. I would like them to fix up the dorms and make campus life a lot nicer. The cafeteria is god awful. The food makes you sick sometimes, so the safest food to eat is either pizza or salad. Not many options are put out there. The other thing is that they aren’t open all day. Lunch is from 11-1:30. I barely made it to lunch because of classes. Ramen for me! Another thing is there is nothing to do on campus. The campus in the back is beautiful to walk through, but that’s it. You can either workout in a super small workout facility, play basketball on a super small court, sit in the student center, or play video games in your dorm. 3 stars for academics
Professors are hit or miss. Some are awesome and will do whatever it takes to help their students! Others are horrible and will degrade your character if you don't agree with them. There is nothing to do on campus, but there are often events in downtown Rochester you can attend.
I do not have much to say so far, especially because I have not started my classes at Rochester College yet. However, I can say that the cafeteria food is good, the staff and faculty are nice and friendly, and there seems to be numerous school groups to get involved. The dorm rooms are average (but what can you expect at a college dorm), and the other students at the college seem friendly too. So far though, for being a Christian College, what I have heard so far seems more liberal theology, but again, I have not started my classes yet, so I will have to investigate and see how discerning the staff is in reality.
