I have really enjoyed my time here at Roberts. The community feel is present and is something that had lead to the high ranking of safety on campus and the students feeling that they can connect on a deeper level with their peers and their professors. The faith on campus is also present, but it is not forced down your throat like other Christian colleges might do. The athletics are decent here as a NCAA D2 school. There are programs that are more successful than others, but things are on the rise. Academically, there is a lot that will help each individual succeed, as well as challenge themselves.

I had taken MSL program and it is neither MSL nor MBA the title of the program should be MBAL (L-Leadership) if you are from the technical field and the company did not send you there I would not recommend this program. The program is for folks that are in none technical field and you are wasting your money considering student loan for the graduate has interest so the $30k tuition is going to cost me $40k when done with payment and having a degree that no one knows it and carry no value in the industry.

DMani

When I first stepped onto the campus, I absolutely loved how spacious and small the school was overall. During my tour I learned a lot about the school and I need to expect next year when I'm actually a student there, I love how approachable the teachers were when I met with them and the small classroom sizes were a definite must for how I learn. Even though Robert's Wesleyan will be like a home away from home I can definitely see myself growing here and I can't wait to be Red Hawk.

I was an undecided major at Roberts Wesleyan last year, but I decided to transfer out due to a major change. There seems to be a campus unification for the most part. If you are on a sports team, you will probably know most of the people at the school by meeting other people on other sports team. The school is small, but you could still meet a new person everyday if you wanted to. Everybody becomes a close tight-knit community. The academic facilities are decent and the faculty is very nice and accessible. It is easy to get a letter of recommendation from the faculty there. The class size is very good, there are no classes really bigger than 60 kids. Most classes are kids 30-40 kids or less. The campus food may not be the best but they usually have a decent variety and they can always cook some other food for you anytime between breakfast and meal equivalence if it's not a meal time or if they did not cook something that you like. In terms of nearby places, there are not any shops nearby in walking distance or any buses. However, if you have friends who have cars everything you need is honestly within 5-20 minutes away. There are also at least 3 other colleges within 30 minutes of Roberts if you wanted to meet some people outside the school. On-campus housing is ok, just realize it is a Christian college and it does have rules. Off-campus housing is good, but there are rules regarding that as well usually. There are several apartments complexes within 15 minutes of the school. There is usually something to do on campus every day. However, sometimes you have to be creative and make your own fun. There are occasional parties and Roberts Wesleyan, but they are off campus. The athletic facilities are great. I think if they cut back on some of the rules a bit like chapel credit and visiting hours, and added some diversity assistance, more majors and some other resources I think it could be an amazing school. There were really no problems with diversity, but I think a diversity center would still be beneficial for the Roberts Wesleyan community.

  15. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    The best thing about Roberts is the professors and education you receive. The class sizes are small and the professors have the opportunity to know you and provide assistance when you need it. Roberts is very small which works for me. I wanted my undergrad to be at a smaller college where the focus was more on academics. I think the biggest complaints are the lack of anything to do on campus. The college does make an effort to provide campus activities but it could be better.
