I really love it! The environment makes you feel as if it is another home! My roommate and team are always encouraging one another and you truly can be yourself here! I am happy that I chose Roosevelt university for my home for the next four years, I can not wait for more memories with everyone!
I think the Roosevelt University is a beautiful school located in the middle of down town Chicago. I am a recent merged student from the merge of Robert Morris University with Roosevelt University. I love how beautiful the campus is, as well as the architecture of the building.
I like the unique and open-mindedness of the students and faculty here at Roosevelt. The dedication to social justice is what brought me to this school and they do a pretty good job at committing to it. I've made many great friends while living in the Wabash building and the view is to die for! However, this school is really expensive.
Roosevelt University is a very inclusive school that encourages students to get out there. There are many opportunities to meet new people from multiple clubs to athletics there is always something to do. The staff is very friendly and the building itself feels extremely safe and homey, which is hard to come by in a big city. Overall Roosevelt is a very good option for students who want to be engaged in a smaller setting. Yet there have been issues when it comes to housing and food. The cafe is very small and has few options that are only available during certain times. Housing is very strict and hard to come by especially with the inclusion of Robert Morris students. The facilities such as financial aid, academic advising, and residence life are very prickly and at times seem incompetent. This may be why Roosevelt has such a low retention percentage. Overall the school is not bad, but some of the way they go about things can seem inhibitory rather than letting students flourish.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Roosevelt University is 73%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Make sure that the college fits the criteria of the field that they are interested in, as well as the social and interacting aspect of the campus.
Just based on what I have seen so far with Roosevelt starting from the time I applied, they are very hands-on and accommodating to the students. They consistently check up on you and follow up regarding your enrollment, registration, and other school needs or inquiries. They make themselves available to you based on your own comfort and convenience and they constantly send you reminders and any additional information that you might need in order to have a good experience in this school.
Roosevelt is love: supported, nurtured, fulfilled, and passionate.
They tightes bunch of motly crewed misfits and I adore them!
Roosevelt is best known for its College of Performing Arts. The music and theatre programs have developed outstanding reputations and have been able to produce wonderful and talented students.
I consider the best about Roosevelt University is that the classes are small and each student is able to form a relationship with the professors. Many students prefer to know about their professors and be able to go to the professor when an issue arises. With one-to-one help, the students are most likely to form relationships with the professors.
i cant really say, i will just say the school is perfect.
People who don't care about academics should avoid Roosevelt. It is a very academically focused school. Also, if you do not like community service then this is not the school for you. Anyone who does not like to commute should not attend Roosevelt University. And if you don't like attending school in a major metropolition area, then this is definatly not the school for you as it is in the heart of the Chicago loop.
Many students that attend Roosevelt University (Schaumburg Campus) are adults going back to school to get their degree. There are a lot of required group projects, in which make it difficult to complete when placed in groups with adults who have schedules that do not only revolve around them but also their families.
This school is very diverse. Everyone here is completely different. Many different ethnicities, backgrounds. etc. Everyone has their own little world and level of inteligence.
I like that all the classes are located in just 2 buildings instead of a large campus
I wish I had known how much it was going to cost me.
It's a great school with great options for anyone not interested din the sciences. It's a school with a social justice mission, so there is that sense of humanity in it.
Roosevelt is a pretty social place, there are many lectures for example recently they had a series of lectures on wrongful convictions. The main sports team we have is basketball although sports are not super popular at Roosevelt. There are many organizations such as LGTBQ and Occupy. There is a huge performing arts part of school and so there are many concerts, musicals, and plays offered. I am personally involved in the Criminal Justice Society because Criminal Justice is my major. The dating scene is interesting because there are so many LGTBQ students. If you are not part of that group then many students either date other Roosevelt students or from other colleges that are close by like Columbia, Depaul and Robert Morris. Many Roosevelt Students are friends with other students from other colleges. My closest friends I met last year just through my classes, but I have a lot of friends that go to nearby schools. Often times you meet people through off campus parties which are a blast. As far as fraternities/ sororities are different here they are often directed towards bettering the community and are not as popular as the college town ones would be. Most kids such as myself go to the museums, shop, and travel to different parts of the city. Roosevelt is a great experience.
We are all commuters and older non traditional students but that is absolutely not the case.
The passing percentage of actuary exams at Roosevelt university is pretty high.
Roosevelt just started having sports on campus. Last year was the first year for the boys and girls basketball teams, the track team, the tennis team and the baseball team. We now have those sports. School spirit has increased so much since the sports have come on campus.
