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!
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.
