Expensive, but the campus is beautiful and the community is incredible. It feels like everyone is friends with everyone at Saint Rose. The faculty are always willing to help, even if they aren't your professors! Saint Rose is worth the money, and it will always feel like home to me.
Review The College of Saint Rose
At The College of Saint Rose I have had an amazing experience. My classes are so small that I am allowed to created relationships with all the students as well as the teacher. I have never been to a huge public school so the transition into college was very easy for me. Your advisors are also very attentive and want to make sure you do graduate within 4 years. Although the cost of attendance may be high, the schools financial aid office will work with you to make this the best experience possible. The campus is very small but since it is placed in the middle of downtown Albany it creates a metro feel as if I was still in New York City. This college is whatever you make it. It can be the best 4 years of your life or the most boring. I am glad I picked this college to gain an immense amount of education, friends, and life experiences.
My experience at the College of Saint Rose this past fall and spring semester was a good/stressful/ different experience for me. The students and the faculty were very friendly and inviting. The classes were good I learned a lot. Of course when the semesters were ending it was a little stressful because of all of the final papers and final exams I had to take but God got me through it. I am a student athlete, I am on the women's track and field team and the coaches are very friendly and fun to be around and so are my teammates .The reason that I gave four stars instead of five is because I feel like the food could be better.
