I like attending The College of New Rochelle. I am currently a sophomore and a resident on campus and I value the staff and support that this institution has to offer. The smaller classroom sizes allow for professors to have one-on-one time with students and get to know them as a person. Here at CNR everyone is welcomed and there is always a sense of community. I feel safe at CNR and would like to continue furthering my education here.
The College of New Rochelle is a campus that welcomes everyone despite ethnicity and race. When I first stepped foot on campus, I felt like home. I was not judged. I was and still am accepted as a student of the College of New Rochelle. The staff and faculty are always available. They are willing to assist anyone who is having difficulty in classes or with their personal life. If there happens to be a student who feels as if all hope is lost, the Deans or professors will work with them. There are many services available to students. For example, our Student Health Services department offers counseling and free health services. Tutoring services at Gill Library are extremely helpful to those who are struggling in their classes. The dining services are great. The director of the dining services is always open to hearing ways she can improve the types of food being served. Moreover, the college offers a great variety of activities and majors. Whether a student is undecided or has declared a major, there are unique classes available such as Women and Religion, Philosophy and Gender, American Gothic, and 21st Century Art. Academics is something we're highly recognized for. The School of Nursing program I am currently in is well recognized. The School of Nursing has done an exceptional job in maintaining unique academic classes. This program is said by many alumnae to guarantee a person a job in the medical field. The course structure and required courses needed to take in the near future will definitely prepare us for the real world. Lastly, the College of New Rochelle is a family. We are a community that sticks together and looks out for one another. Family Weekend, movie nights, and trips to the Metropolitan Art Museum are the many ways we share memories with one another. Choosing to attend The College of New Rochelle was a wise decision that I will never regret.
Well run. Very professional. Staff and faculty respected and respect students. Library well stock and uses latest hi-tech. Staff well informed, knowledgeable, professional. The local library of New Rochelle is nearby and well stocked, hi-tech, and informed staff. the city also very well served by and for its citizens.
Personally the school is not bad and the campus during the spring and summer is really beautiful. However, the school's administration and the students body doesn't really care for the school. if the students actually cared the school would be in a better state.

Never excuse yourself. Procrastination may have gotten you through high school, but it is only going to hinder you through college. Being a senior and graduating is not an excuse to slack off. Late work is no longer an option. Start practicing your time management skills now, because there is no such thing as a study hall in college; any waking moment outside of class, is homework time. Push yourself harder, it will make college only seem easier. College is not meant to be a social place; you are there to learn first and foremost. Take advantage of every opportunity presenting itself to you at college; life only enriches with these experiences. Make friends, and learn to enjoy college even when you feel like you are in over your head. Time will escape you if you choose not to hold a firm grasp on it; you are the one in control. You can handle this. Make everyone who worked hard to get you here, proud. Before settling with a major, feel free to explore your interests, find something you truly enjoy in addition to embracing your strengths. Education is a blessing, do not compromise it. Never, ever give up! =)
My classmates are diverse and most are involved in school activities.
The College of New Rochelle was challenging and rewarding. The teachers push you and epect the best from you. They see your potential and want you to reach your goals.
THEY ARE ACADEMICALLY FOCUSED AND NOT TOO MUCH NOISE OR PARTYING
the location, class sie, activites, and the warm inviting feeling were all differnt from the other school I considered for undergraduate work. IWhen I first steeped in campus i felt a feeling of De ja vu as if I was meant to be there at that time amongst those people.
College of New Rochelle could be better if it became a Co-ed institution.
It is mainly known for it's nursing program, it is also known for being an all girls school even though it isn't. The school of Nursing is Co- Ed, while the school of Arts and Sciences is women only.
Someone who wants large classes, where he or she able to have side conversations or not pay attention should not attend this school. Also, if you love having many friends and family members visiting or having house parties, then you should not attend this school.
A person who enjoys peace and quiet. Someone who is a bit on the introverted side would definitley appreciate this school and what it has to offer. There are few parties and the ones we do have are heavily watched and chaperoned by administrators. If you need a lot of support and guidance to be at your best, this is the school for you.
not much social activities on campus, quite boring at time. Student initiatives are not supported by student developments
Can't say, not involved, I'm an evening weekend student.
There isn't a ton to do on campus on the weekends, but Student Development is working hard to change this. CNR is kind of a suitcase school, where a lot of people go home on the weekends and everyone else spends their time studying.
The academic life in the Honors Program is fairly rigorous, but I have not found it overwhelmingly so. Professors recognize each student and are prone to talking to their students casually outside of class. There's a pretty good split at CNR between students who actually study and students who do not. Nursing students tend to study the hardest, as they have the most rigorous program. My friends and I have fun, interesting academic discussions outside of class, but I'm not sure too many other students do.
The religion major is not very rigorous. There are two religion faculty members, and there is a huge difference in their teaching styles. One, a nun, covers exclusively Catholic topics and has fairly difficult classes. The other teaches the comparative religion classes, and his courses are fairly easy if you pay attention and read the instructions in his syllabus carefully. He can be rather particular about doing assignments correctly.
My favorite class that I've taken at CNR was probably Feminist Imaginations with Dr. Nick Smart. I found it incredibly challenging to my beliefs and also posed an academic challenge. Our small class (6 people) had great discussions and did some very interesting research projects at the end of the semester. For example, I investigated the myth of matriarchal prehistory and whether or not such a myth was indeed helpful to the feminist movement.
My least favorite class has probably been Divided Societies with Dr. McKenrnan. She is a really difficult teacher who can be very vague in her instructions but who has very particular ideas about how things ought to get done. If you ask questions in her classes, her response tends to be to read the syllabus. However, this is usually insufficient to all that she requires of students and it is very very difficult to get an A from her.
CNR tends to prep students based on their major. Some majors prep towards Grad school, others to jobs. There isn't a whole lot of learning for learning's sake.
Overall, CNR's academic requirements are fair and comprehensive. I loved taking my core classes and investigating the things I found most interesting that fell outside my major. I really took advantage of the opportunity to take electives, and I feel I will graduate this May as a well rounded and capable student.
I'm not sure what stereotypes there are about CNR students. There is the belief that nothing fun happens here though.
The College of New Rochelle is a small, private, Catholic college that only admits women to their School of Arts and Sciences. CNR is a pretty small school that the majority of people outside of Westchester County are not familiar with. I spend a lot of time in my room, but there are plenty of opportunities to be social and hang out if you are so inclined. New Rochelle as a town is pretty walkable, and there are two other colleges in the area that are prone to inviting the other colleges to events. Student complaints generally revolve around the administration's inflexibility on school policy, and the School of Nursing faculty's lack of compassion for students. There was also recently a bit of a controversy when some students tried to get an LGBTQA group started on campus called "Spectrum." The effort went south when the office of Student Services claimed that "as a Catholic institution CNR could not be 'accepting' of 'the gay lifestyle.'"
Most students are employed. I believe it is an accurate stereotype.
How horrible it was going to be, and how expensive.
