University of Rochester Reviews
Rochester is a very homey school. There is always something to do on campus whether it be studying, movies, or other activities. With everything on campus it often is hard to find time and ways to get off campus and explore Rochester. The city of Rochester is quite spread out so its hard to get around very easily. The University does supply buses, however they often only run to central shopping locations on the weekends. Study spaces on campus are limitless and comfortable. The overall feel of the campus is very pleasant with lots of green grass and beautiful trees. At the center of it all is Rush Rhees library which can be seen and heard (through bells that play every 15 minutes) from miles away. University of Rochester is academically challenging, but there are lots of resources you can use to get help if you need it. Overall U of R's campus and personality have made it a wonderful place to attend!
The University of Rochester has become a second home to me. I found comfort in the little things: the two swings we have in the middle of the school, the beautiful buildings especially the breathtaking Rush Rhees Library, the dance studios, the basketball court in Spurrier, etc. The university found a way to make you feel so welcomed as a college freshmen by hosting multiple carnivals, free giveaways, and orientation week. One thing about Rochester that I would change is more diversity on campus. As a Latina, it was hard trying to fit in and find my crowd first semester. With more diversity, the school should be set.
The first impression for the student is the diversity and inclusive environment. There are many that come from different walks of life and all come to reap the benefits this university has to offer. Academically, the professors, administrators, and advisers readily make themselves available for the student. The building hours are reasonable and clubs and activities are highly involved with the campus community. There are always events on campus but the off-campus culture is alive as well.
