The professors are always willing to help, I love the educational experiences I have had. My major is Communication Sciences and Disorders, and I truly have nothing bad to say against the program or the professors that are there helping me achieve my goals. This semester I have the chance to travel abroad with one of my classes and I am thrilled to be a part of this experience!

I liked the small class ratio. The professors were available rapidly, and had many office hours. There were facilities that had computer access 24/7. Usually freshman dorming is not always the best, but by my junior year, I lived comfortably in an apartment with 3 of my other friends. Maintenance was very reliable with either snow removal or fixing complications. Security walked me back to my room if needed, helped me jump start my car and unlocked my room door various times. Midnight madness was my favorite part of saint rose. It was a pep rally for the students and every year it was packed and enthusiastic. What I would like to see on campus is more diversity.
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.
