The academics are outstanding. I learn more each week than I ever learned in my high school career. The hands-on aspects of labs makes each class fun! Every day is an adventure! And I have already made lifelong friends, and everyone I meet is open to meeting people.
The professors here at Rose show that they aren't worried about research, just teaching students and making sure they understand the material. Each professor does have their own style of teaching, so going from quarter to quarter will be different every time. For the most part, there are quite a few different courses offered in the humanities, but the intended category of engineering you go for means you usually take the classes that are needed that aren't humanities. Since the seniors do get first pick of classes, the freshmen get the worst pick of humanities classes. Class sizes do have a wide range, some being as low as 5-10 people all the way to 30.
The student body is welcoming and inviting, and making friends is easy, which is useful given I was the only person going to Rose from my high school. The courses are tough, but the professors are friendly and willing to provide one-on-one help constantly. There are many extracurriculars available, and the floors within the dorm rooms become close-knit communities, providing much-needed support. The college is nationally recognized as excellent, making internships easily available, and reduces stress about finding a job after graduation. The material covered in class is engaging and challenging, and achieving academic excellence has an extra level of satisfaction and reward. Overall, the college is fantastic.
