The campus is small, with lots of nature and trails to walk on. It's beautiful! Besides being a gorgeous, safe campus, the school offers unique experiences like studying abroad and taking classes at other colleges for credit, such as the University of Pennsylvania. One can also apply to a dual degree program, in which the student can receive their bachelor's and master's degree in just 5 years!

While I did not appreciate it at the time, I really enjoyed my experience here. I made some of the greatest friendships that I could. We had a lot of fun partying at Nova, or going into Philly. I enjoyed the breakfast food (AM classes), and liked the option of cooking my own food. Absolutely beautiful campus, and I liked the "haunted" stories that came with it. I was on RamSquad and apart of ALA and loved it! My classes were really great; and I really liked my professors as well. I felt like they were preparing me for life as an artist. I loved my dorm! And the library had some awesome hide-a-way spots!
Rosemont College has been everything I had hoped and more. I chose the college for their small class size and phenomenal Biology program. After finishing my freshman year, I can honestly say it was the best decision I have ever made. The professors are great and always willing to provide one on one time if you need help in specific areas of the course. The tutoring offered helped me pass chemistry my freshmen year and made me much m ore confident moving forward into my pursuit to a medical career.
