What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the University is great academically. Most people are really kind and welcoming. The food in this university is sadly not the best and could probably use more options. In terms of Greek life, there is a good amount of students who are actively involved. The are various clubs or organizations you can join to make your experience a memorable one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is a very nice place. I am a current sophomore at the school and I love it. There are so many opportunities at this school. It's a smallish-medium sized school so it's a pretty close-knit community. The school is located on the outskirts of the city. Most events happen on campus where most of the students spend a majority of their time. The amount of research that goes on in this school is extraordinary. You will find something that you like no matter what field you're studying.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally love the U of R. The curriculum is quite flexible, which helps students determine which academic path they will pursue. Also, there are tons of extracurricular activities to get involved. Faculty is very available and open to talking to students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Rochester is the type of place where you can do whatever you want without being judged. The variety of students there is unbelievable. You can find literally every type of student: from the guy who never leaves the library to the frat bro who parties every day, from the most athletic guy to someone who has never been in a gym. It is this diversity that makes the University of Rochester such an awesome place to study. You have access to every point of view that you could ever imagine. I cannot think of a better way to grow as a human being than being surrounded by such a variety of people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Rochester's main appeal is being a college with the excellent academics without a core curriculum. It is both positive and negative, but it is what most people say when asked what drew them to the UofR. But, while the education is great, the social life is dull. I'm a big basketball fan and the sports and school spirit is nonexistent on campus. No one goes to any games and I feel completely on the outs when March Madness comes around - no one cares about sports or school spirit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school. It's a good size and easy to get around. No bikes or buses are required to get to classes (except those in the school of music) and the campus is nice. All of the professors I've had so far have been great and I've made a lot of good friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a fruitful school with enlightening academics, reat orgs, but the social connections are a little hard to meet if you don't fit the groups that are on campus. It is a little full of cliques but there are so many ways to participate that everyone should find a set of people that they share interests with

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Rochester, home to the Nipple of Knowledge. This might seem like a strange thing to be known for but we have an incredibly library for anyone, from quiet to social. This University offers a wide range of academic opportunities including the availability to take classes at the medical school as an undergraduate student as well as the world renowned Eastman School of Music located a few miles down the road. This University has research available to all students, even undergraduates and has a comprehensive learning environment. One of minor pitfalls of this University would be the food, but theres a Wegamans close by so no need to panic. Overall this is a pretty great school with some pretty great people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a freshman, I really like the college so far. I have met a ton of dedicated professor who was willing to help. Also, the open curriculum really drew me in with that choice that is different from what I have seen other colleges. Also the services they have for campus are amazing and always willing to lend a hand.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a student of the Eastman school of Music, at the University of Rochester, which is technically different. We do have access to classes and food and facilities of UR, but we primarily live and go to school at a separate school. The UR has lots of very nice facilities and good food, but Eastman is lacking. It is so expensive and the food/living situations are less than ideal. It's an amazing music program that I am happy to be part of, but I find it hard to be happy with my surroundings.
