Review The College of Saint Rose
The College of Saint Rose is a great and warming school. Everyone and everything is inspired by coming together and being a family. There are endless support systems on campus to help you both academically and emotionally. The College of Saint Rose is generally small and so is its classes, I generally feel at home knowing that my professors know me as an individual and are more than open to helping me with whatever goals I challenge myself with.
The campus is very small, about 46 acres. It spans two blocks. Everything is within walking distance from everything else. The buildings are nice -- not too old, not extremely avant-garde. Mainly classic academic architecture with some newer buildings (Massry Center for the Arts, Centennial Hall, Huether Center for Business, Hearst Center for Communications and Interactive Media) being "greener" and including more modern designs/materials. Most other buildings are made of brick, though. The interiors of all buildings are attractive and clean. There is new technology integrated into all classrooms: SmartBoards, energy-saving lights with sensors (that turn off if no activity is sensed), and more.

The library is pleasant and relaxing, with many resources and knowledgeable staff. The main quad/green is quite active during warm autumn days and spring days. There is a main lounge next to Starbucks in the Events and Athletics Center that hosts many events and provides students a place to sit and congregate.

There are too many activities happening on campus to list! There's something going on every day somewhere. There's always stuff to do and people to see.
