Roosevelt University Reviews
If you're going for performing arts, go! I loved the music school but be prepared for music majors and MT's that you'll be in class for too long (8AM-6PM some days). Any other major I heard is trash from non music students. A lot of people transfer. Living in the city is dope but its cold, so be ok with that and people are crazy and homeless everywhere. ALSO- they want your money. Be careful, the advisors do NOT know what they're talking about. I transferred.
I believe that CCPA serves as a perfect environment to model standards of excellence in ensemble performance. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, specifically, is a great role model. The opportunity to attend concerts will serve as beau idéal for me in my vision for the Caribbean and enhance my appreciation and knowledge of the art form. The availability of guest artists, the opportunity to study with the faculty at CCPA and gain their insight in the area of performance and education serves as a powerful incentive in my choice of study.
Roosevelt University is full of determined individuals that are driven towards success. There is always positive energy in the air that makes people motivated to learn!
