What is your overall opinion of this school?

Do not go here for electrical and computer engineering. You will learn nothing. The program is insufferably dumbed down; it is a wonder how it stays accredited. Dorms and food are sub-par. Professors care more about their research than teaching. Most students are uninterested, and it isn't hard to understand why. I feel like I was tricked into attending this university as the school has a good reputation. Now, I wish I had gone literally anywhere else. I have friends who went to community college and they learned far more in their engineering class than I have in three years here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The rooms are quite large, and some of the newer buildings have sinks and mirrors in each room (even for some lucky freshman). However Residential Life Office is sometimes difficult to work with for any special cases. The food can get tiring... Nothing to boast of. Academics--likely the most important factor--are no joke. Nearly all my classes have been challenging and stimulating with many nice professors. There is a wide array of courses offered--check it out on https://cdcs.ur.rochester.edu/

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is definitely the university of my dreams. I would not be in a better place. I feel very comfortable being here and I fully recommend this college to anybody. The intellectual environment is something that makes it very unique. You won’t feel bored at any time. There’s always something to do out there! In fact, living in a city in which every place is so close is a good advantage.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my experience at the University of Rochester has been absolutely incredible. The academics are beyond this world and it's amazing to finally feel like I have found the place where I belong. It is a community of students and professors that encourage each other to grow and strive to the best of our abilities. There are several groups on campus for students to get involved with allow for students to continue their passions, as well as continue to make the campus "ever better".

What is your overall opinion of this school?

On the first day of college I knew not a single other person on campus, I was so scared, I even got lost trying to find my way back to my room from the bathroom. And yet now I couldn’t image going back. I’ve made so many good friends, found new passions by accidently signing up for clubs, and found all sorts of new strengths and weaknesses. I love U of R and could imagine who I would have been had I not gone here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I cannot wait to attend and I am super excited about attending next semester. Another thing I am excited about is the proximity of close cities where you never feel like you're too far away from a new city. Also the environment is just so welcoming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy it here! The food is much better (usually) then I have had at other schools when visiting, both as a perspective student and visiting friends. The academics are obviously top-notch which was a big part of why I came here, and I really appreciate having the medical center so close to campus allowing for internships and practical research experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall the University of Rochester is a good school. The professors are accessible and they actually care whether or not their students understand the material. On the other side of this, tests are difficult, but if you look for help you can find it

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Rochester is an amazing school with many different opportunities. Here at this school, students have the change meet people from different backgrounds, places, and learn something new about the world everyday. I have no regrets coming to this school because I have met the best people: kind, funny, smart- and we all have learned so many things this new semester.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

To say the University of Rochester is an excellent school would be an understatement. The motto of the university is “meliora” meaning “ever better”. According to the university, this is more than just a motto; it is a way of life. The university, its professors, and its students never settle. Instead, they work hard to make the university, the community, and themselves better. The school strives to be the best that it can be and I truly believe it succeeds. With and top-notch professors, over 200 academic majors, and a diverse community, I give this university an A+. All of my professors at the University of Rochester have inspired me, encouraged me, challenged me, and believed in me. Each and every professor is qualified and immensely passionate about the subjects they are teaching. They have all created a warm and comfortable learning environment that encourages students to participate, ask questions, work together, and get to know one another. If a student is having a difficult time understanding something, the professors will do everything they can to help. Their office doors are always open. With a variety of majors to choose from and an open curriculum, students have much freedom and control over what they wish to study at the University of Rochester. Instead of general education requirements, the school requires one writing class and one cluster in a subject area outside of one’s major. This means that students are not forced to take (and pay for!) a bunch of classes that they do not want to take. It gives students the opportunity to focus on their passions and put their time and energy into classes they love and enjoy. This helps student receive higher grades and excel in their fields. According to the university, about 45 percent of students double major. There are even many students that double minor or triple major. This makes students open to more fields and more job opportunities. There is nothing better than being immersed in a community that values diversity, language, and culture. The school is located in Rochester, which is home to a huge Deaf community. It is so special and wonderful to study and live in an area so rich in language and culture. As student studying American Sign Language, I had the opportunity to attend many community events and practice my signing outside of the classroom. This experience is unlike one that any other school can offer. The University of Rochester has made me a better person. While learning a beautiful language, I was introduced to a new culture, I made lifelong friends, and amazing professors inspired me. The professors, community, and open curriculum have helped me to be a better version of myself. I am now ready to make the world ever better
