What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

For the students who are trying to find the right college, pick a college that you would like. Try not to pick a college just because your friends are going there or because it's known as a party college and all you want to do is party when you get there. College is a very importmant part of your future and what you will become. Take it seriously, because if you don't you might regret it in the future and you won't be able to change what you have done. It doesn't mean that you should not have fun while you are in college. You definetly need to have fun sometime and enjoy the experience of being in college.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The type of person who shouldn't attend this school is someone who is still unsure what they want to major in. It will be to costly to come to this school and pay the tuition not knowing what you want to do. The tuition is worth it only if you are sure of what your major is.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I like this school because it is very convenient for me to be here. It is very close to my home, grocery stores, mall and shops. If there is any time between my classes I can easily go anywhere I want instead of staying at the campus until my next class.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

It is a very decent school, much like a mom and pop shop except it's a university you pay 9000 a year to attend.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Those who are looking for a college experience suited to what they desire should thoroughly examine their schools of choice prior to making a commitment. It is not rare for me to hear one of my high school friends complain about their current college because of an issue they overlooked in their college search. When one does not enjoy some aspects of his or her college experience, one misses out on the greater college experience. Always ensure you investigate your college of choice thoroughly.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustratign thing about Roosevelt University is that there is very little student involvement; the students go to the campus, go to class, and then leave campus and don't really participate in extra-curricular activities.

What's unique about your campus?

the best thing is that students from depaul, roosevelt, and columbia all live in the university center so it gives you the oppurtunity to meet all different types of people. Also, the building is very nice and clean and everything you need is under one roof.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

the most frustrating thing is that other student (especially upperclessmen) are not very friendly or helpful to the new students and i find it somewhat difficult to meet people and make friends

Griffin
What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish that I had known that the school doesn't offer anywhere near the number of classes they list in the catalog.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone conservative that is looking for a stereotypical college experience would never enjoy Roosevelt.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would have my parents/or students write out what type of environment is best for them to learn. In order for one to succeed in school, one needs to be in an environment that enables them to grow. Some people like large cities or some like small towns. Also, some might succeed in small classrooms while others succeed in large classrooms. Once they find out what environment suites them, then the next step is to find schools with that type of environment and has the desired major the parent/or student wants. After a list is assembled, the next step is to apply to the ones that match the parent's or student's criteria and sit back and wait for the responses. The hard part is then over, now it would just be the time where the parent/ or student would wait to see if they got into the schools they applied for.

What's unique about your campus?

I love my school because it is close to everything. It is close to the Chicago Library, Grant Park, Millenium Park, and many other places. Academically, I feel it challenges me, I like being motivated to consistently do my best. I feel the small classrooms gives students the opportunity to have a close relationship with the instructor and do not feel like they are just "another student." This provides the best way for students to succeed.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who likes large classrooms and a large campus. Someone who does not like living in a large city.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Roosevelt University is a school that provides the perfect training to achieve ones ambition, I was attracted by the inventiveness and uniqueness. Also its combination of superior faculty, facilities and the student body, which makes it the ideal environment in which to broaden my skills and ideas. Also the school?s exciting courses and its flexible program.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

They should be focused and they should try and select the school they think is the best for their children, especially the school that will make one achieve his/ her goals in life. The schools should not be choosed based on nearness or tuition, i think parent should look at the school way of teaching and impacting knowledge into students, with all these at hand they will surely pick the best. Students should make most of their college experience because in college you learn soo much and you see soo much, these experiences are one time experience that one will cherish most in life.Student should make use of it and utilize it in a positive way.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

i cant really say, i will just say the school is perfect.
