I think that Rosemont College is a hidden gem. It is completely possible to challenge yourself academically here. In the science department, the professors are very highly qualified and teach the material very well. The staff here are all incredibly helpful and approachable. Rosemont is a small community where people all around campus know each other. People here genuinely want you to succeed. For undergraduate science students, research opportunities are incredibly accessible which is not common at large universities. I am only a freshman and already know the chair of my department well and plan to join her research team sophomore year. There are also many hospitals and medical facilities in the area where students can get volunteer hours. One thing about this school that is a positive aspect for me, but not everyone, is the lack of a large party scene. Overall, I would recommend Rosemont College to students who want to go to college to learn in a tight knit community.

Beautiful campus. Facilities are lacking but getting better every day! Athletics coaches need to be full time and there are a few people that work here that need to remember why we work here. For me, it is to bring the best college experience we can for the future of this country, and not just to make a paycheck.
The small classroom sizes and 11:1 student to professor ratio, allows the students to get 1 on 1 attention when needed. Also the close environment makes the community members of Rosemont College close.
