Fisher is an excellent choice for teacher preparation! The faculty and staff are exceptional. There are several opportunities to get involved on and off campus through athletics, clubs, community service, and field experiences. Tuition is costly, but the education you receive here is so worth every penny.

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.
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.
