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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The nursing program U of R is one of the best programs I have ever had the pleasure of being apart of. The professors and admissions staff truly care about the students, they do everything possibly to help. The classes and the way we are taught is truly amazing, they teach you who to be prepared for every possibility. It's truly a place where you can lean on your fellow students and create a bond with them. U of R is school would recommend to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As someone who is looking to finish a degree a bit faster than usual, it's tough dealing with the administration. They're not very flexible and you have to petition to do anything unusual. But if you're looking for that full, four-year college experience this is a good place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! It's my dream school. I attend the Eastman School of Music, the renowned music school at the University of Rochester. In my time at Eastman, I would definitely want to pursue a further education of African American History. The courses within this major also cover the elements of music, art, religion, and oppression of the black community extensively. Social justice, awareness, and familiarity with my culture are all things that are extremely important to me, and studying them alongside music would help me grow into a well-rounded, compassionate, and intellectual person.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I haven't explored enough, but I would rather go to a different school with a better engineering program. This is a good place for academics only - especially if you are looking towards pre-med. I never expected such few things to do here in upstate NY. It gets cold, the city is more dangerous than most (found out later on), and we aren't a party school or have much spirit for sports. You want education, you get education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Rochester is a welcoming campus with great and rigorous academics. The students here are all in for learning nothing but the best. Everyone is super friendly and eager to help you if they can. The area surrounding campus can be sometimes questionable but thats around every college campus. The academics here are often compared to that of a top tier college and this college is one of the most welcoming student bodies I have ever met. I am so excited for my next years here!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Rochester has a wide array of academic courses ranging from the arts to the most technical sciences. Similarly, the campus life is diverse with people from around the globe and extracurricular activities to please everyone. Although it is not the largest university, it offers Greek life, division three sports teams and a plethora of musical and other artistic outlets.

What I like most about UofR?

I love the environment and sense of home around here. Orientation was so much fun! People are for the most part really nice! There are always activities going on that give me a sense of belonging! This morning the dining hall worker asked me to smile because I would sure see better days! The other day a librarian greeted me and wished me luck on my studying! It's really great to talk to advisers, upperclassmen, professors, and alumni about my track, because they are so positive and will stand by this school no matter what! UR home:)
