Rochester University Reviews
The friends I made at RU are still my closest friends today. Plus, I really grew in my faith during my time as a student at Rochester. I discovered a lot about what my faith meant to me and how it would impact the choices I made in my work, family, and other areas of my life. I credit RU for giving me a solid foundation to move through God's world and follow the example set by the person of Jesus.
I encourage anybody looking for a small school environment to consider RU- it makes such a difference to be viewed as a whole person, and not just a number!
