Roosevelt University Reviews
Roosevelt University is in the center of the city of Chicago. You have a beautiful view no matter where you go and you don't have to leave the building for anything. Security is everywhere and it's extremely diverse. Since it's in the city, there are lots of opportunities, fun events and celebrity guest that come right in the front door of Roosevelt! It can be expensive but I believe it's worth the safety and the experience. It's definitely unique!
Roosevelt has been pretty great thus far. The campus is breathtaking and the dorms are similar to pent houses on the 31st floor! A beautiful building with great amenities makes for a great Residence Hall. The classes are small (30-40 students max) which I really enjoy because you can get to know your professors better and have an overall better learning environment in my opinion.
The school is very diverse. You see many students of not only different backgrounds but you have students of different religions, cultures, states, countries, languages, and experiences. There are many opportunities to find teachers to connect with you if you wished to have that connection. The environment that Roosevelt gives off allows students to thrive and succeed towards their goals through their efforts.
