I spent 6 years at Saint Rose as an out of state student, 4 years for undergrad and 2 for grad school. Plenty of opportunities to get involved in student life, athletics and academic groups. I was a secondary education major and I felt very confident going into the teaching profession after my education. The professors were great and most of them genuinely wanted to help you any way they could. The level of knowledge I received for my career at this school is above any I’ve seen in my home state or from state school. I’m so happy I got both my degrees from saint rose! I loved the campus and the off campus life around the area. Definitely a fun party scene if that’s your thing. If not, still a great area! I always felt safe on campus and in dorms.

The College of Saint Rose is a place for any student that wants to feel like they are part of a tight knit community. From athletics to clubs to class, the college provides a connection between the students that makes for a family like environment! The faculty and staff are extremely helpful and kind. Each professional on the campus is there to see you succeed and grow as you continue your education!
The College of Saint Rose is a very comfortable, helpful, accepting school. I love it here. I recommend my friends from high school come to Saint Rose because it’s great. I have heard some unsettling things about majors being cut, but other than that, the professors and students and even the other people who work here are great. Perry and Annie are both amazing people who work at Saint Rose and make everyone’s day better just by seeing them! The variety of food is a plus as well. This school is great and I’m glad to be getting my education here. I feel like I’m learning from the best, my professors are great. It’s so much more diverse than my high school and I appreciate that so much. All of the events including sports and club events are so fun and inspiring! The campus is so beautiful and welcoming, I feel safe and at home here.
