    College Senior: This school is great. I applied and was accepted and just completed my orientation with Rochester College. I love the class size, campus, accessibility and great staff. The class sizes are very small in comparison to universities and other colleges. These small class sizes are fantastic in that students have the ability to have more one on one time with professors to go over difficult concepts. This aspect I feel is essential to success in the classroom.

    In addition to this, the campus both the main campus and the satellite campuses are stunning. Rochester College's main campus is beautiful. There are brand new dormitories made of beautiful brick, perfectly maintained landscaping, and attractive architectural buildings all over the campus. Not only this but they are expanding and building an athletic center which only add to the many awesome buildings there. The satellite campuses are equally beautiful. The campus I will be attending is located on Macomb Community College's campus (where I graduated Most Distinguished Graduate). The University Center where the satellite campus is located is a beautiful building surrounded in part by the serene nature trail and forest. It is so relaxing after a hard day in the classroom to be able to walk outside take a deep breath and take in the beautiful surroundings.

    This last aspect, the satellite campuses, are more reasons why I love Rochester College. These campuses make getting a degree from Rochester College much more accessible and attainable. For example, if I had to travel to Rochester College's main campus for the entirety of my time at this school I would not be able to do it. This is because it is just too far of a drive to commute and paying for room and board is not an option as I could not afford it. With the satellite campus I am able to avoid that huge cost as I am able to commute to school. The satellite campuses make earning this degree much more accessible for students like me.

    5 Safest College Campuses in Michigan

    College Sophomore: I enjoy being apart of the campus life and having a school family. I went through so much during fall 2014 semester. I went to three funerals in three weeks during finals in December. The first funeral was my god-brother, who was shoot and killed at gunpoint in the back of the head. He was only twenty-one years old. Then, my god-uncle past away naturally, but suddenly. He saw his family one last time before passing in the living room of his home. He gave the best advice and had the most in depth conversation a great mind could imagine. Lastly, my fellow classmate that I would see everyday in English class, or during work study in the science department was killed in a car accident. After we had finished finals for that week in December, he was going to a party to celebrate. The car rolled over on his side splitting his skull. The whole English class and Marygrove student body was devastated. Through all the darkness that was surrounding my life, Marygrove was there. They supported me when I thought all was lost and wanted to give up completely. My academic advisor Dr. Page, my success coach Diane Clark, and many more helped me when I thought I was helpless. I was able to pass that semester with all B's. I will never forget that kind of support because it was so personal. They took the time out to go the extra mile, beyond caring. I am proud to be a Marygrove Mustang. Go green and gold!!!!!!!!!
