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.
