Review University of Rochester
Greek life is quite something here at Rochester! It's doesn't overwhelm the campus atmosphere, but if you hang out with a certain group of people, it's hard not to notice. Sororities consist of mixers (parties) and occasional fundraisers with their affiliated charity to give the illusion of good, selfless women. To be fair, most actually care about the charity events, but it's never a girl's primary motivation to join. Fraternities are kinda weird. They constantly diss one another's fraternity but any non-greek doesn't really understand what the big deal is. They throw open parties every once in a while though...
The University of Rochester is excellent academically, and has a beautiful campus with generally great professors who wish to challenge their students to think and learn. Food is decent, dorm rooms are not so great. The flooring in rooms that I've seen is tile and the walls are white painted cement, but freshman housing has pretty large open doubles which can be rearranged if you don't like the set up. Singles in the upperclassmen halls are tiny, probably not recommendable for anyone who gets claustrophobic easily, though there is housing slightly off campus that has much larger rooms as well as carpet which can be used after sophomore year. Overall my experience has been generally good though. The classes have been engaging and taught by dedicated professors. The people are generally friendly and great, I've made tons of friends so far and keep making more every semester. Overall the UofR is a great school with great people.
I love it here! There's is always some thing to do, or get involved with. Everyone here really cares about their classes and are always trying to make each other better. A very collaborative, as opposed to competitive, environment.
