St. John Fisher College is a great college to attend. Every student is generally happy to be here, they are very welcome, and there are always events to get students to come out of their comfort zones. The only downfall is of course the hard courses. Freshman are thrown into horribly hard courses to see if they are meant for their major, this happens at every school. In my experience, the classes are hard, but if you work hard and study enough, it will all be worth it. The professors are amazing! They will do anything to try to help you anytime. They are always checking their emails and are always willing to help.
Review St. John Fisher College
The campus housing in campus is honestly great! Most of the dorms are very close to the center of campus and the farthest is no longer than a 10 minutes walk. The RAs are great and really willing to help if problems arise. ResLife does a great job choosing RAs. The freshman dorms are a little iffy but that's to be expected. There a perks and downfalls to all of the dorms. Keough and Founders are obviously the best dorms to live because they are the newest. Freshman that get placed in Ward or Haffey is great because the dining hall is connected to the main building and it takes no more than 5 minutes to walk to all your classes. Some RAs are strciter on rules than others and the RDs have no hesitation writing people up, so be careful about making too much noise on the weekends especially after quiet hours.
Ward Hall and Haffey Halls have the best location in proximity to the academic buildings. These rooms are reserved specifically for freshman and transfer students to help ease students into the residential life. Some students may be in either a double or a triple in these two halls. (All other residential halls are doubles only, singles, or quads; all of which are reasonably spaced for.) A triple can get a little crowed, but it can work as long as all roommates are reasonable with each other. Students in a triple may get a rebate if they are not de-tripled two months after the semester begins. A double is perfect, which is what I am in. Each floor has a lounge. Laundry is free, and there are community garbages to put your trash into. Elevators are available in every building (as well as stairs). Security is enforced; you must swipe your ID to get into the buildings, as well as on your floor. A housing application is required to be completed prior to the start of the summer, so ResLife can match each student accordingly (Freshman only; Sophomores-Seniors may choose their roommate(s) if they wish). ResLife matched my roommate and I perfectly. Housing at Fisher is a good experience!
