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.
When making the transfer to RU I found the staff to be very easy to communicate with. Very fast response times on digital conversations, and efficient communicators when meeting in person. My only real issue is the only site is quite clunky. It became easier to navigate, but was irritating at first.
