The one problem Rochester College has is transportation. The location does not provide students without a car with any form of public transportation, so the only option for students living on campus is to find someone with a car. Commuters have parking problems as well. With the enrollment increasing each year, this becomes a larger and larger problem. If there is an all-campus event, there may not be enough parking spots for everyone depending on how many people show up.

Rochester College does a very good job of maintaining their grounds and buildings. The facilities are constantly cleaned and taken care of. We have a beautiful nature trail behind the college which is kept in pristine condition!

With Rochester College residing in Rochester Hills we are certainly surrounded by many different housing options. From apartments, to condos, to houses their are many options for students deciding to live off campus. However, it is at times hard to find something with an affordable or reasonable price because of the city we live in.

Rochester College's campus is only about 1 mile long entirely. This means that transportation services are not necessary, and are non existent, to get around our campus grounds.

I am very satisfied with my education thus far at Rochester College. The classes are small, which allows a more personal setting between the students and the teacher. The work load is challenging and sizable, but nevertheless manageable and comprehensive. I have no doubt that Rochester College will adequately teach me all that I need to know for my future in education.

I'm not personally looking for off-campus housing at the moment. However, I have heard that because Rochester College is right next door to Downtown Rochester Hills, most nearby off-campus housing is expensive. On a positive note, the atmosphere Downtown is so inviting, and it's so much to do, the cost may not be such a disadvantage.

I came to Rochester College because my mother graduated from the college and recommended it. I am now here with a major in education. I love the environment and how close-knit of a community it is. Everyone just about knows everyone, the students and staff alike are friendly and genuine, the classes are small and personal, everyone works together to make the college a desirable place to be. An added bonus is that I'm in the college's A Capella Chorus and I absolutely love that ensemble!

the athletic programs are great, but the athletes at the school take away a lot from the christian atmosphere. it would be a better school without them. they all receive the majority of the scholarships, even though they don't try in classes like some of the other students do.
College Sophomore 2013-09-24T18:12:49Z
I received some financial aid, but not near as much as i need. I get great grades, work really hard, and act in a christian way, but the sports jerks are the ones getting all of the scholarships. I need more money and they aren't willing to help much

There are plenty of restaurants but they are pretty expensive.

I am not currently in the nursing program yet but i am trying to get in during the spring semester
College Sophomore 2013-08-11T19:49:37Z
The school rules are VERY strict on campus. They have a dress code and everything
College Sophomore 2013-08-11T19:47:24Z
The fans are genuine, the coaches are usually on their A Game, and the athletes set a fairly good example.

I personally did not live on campus but i was always crashing in my friends dorms. The freshman dorms are small but clean and the upperclassmen dorms are bigger and conveniently placed for the walk to classes.

Rochester is full of interesting places to go but the only downfall is that almost every place costs money. Also, Rochester is a wealthy city so it isn't cheap.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T16:25:58Z
Most of the nightlife is all bars in downtown Rochester so if you are not 21 then you can not go.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T16:25:09Z
The weather is just typical Michigan weather and is always changing. The plus side is that campus is not huge so you can make it to your classes easily and weather is not a huge factor.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T16:22:58Z
There are not always enough parking spots available. The permits are fairly cheap but I do not think they actually go around and check to see if every car has the tag in the window. Other than that the parking lot it in very nice condition.

The dining hall food is not great, but they always have a salad bar, sandwich station, and fruit, so you don't have to leave hungry. You also receive $100 flex dollars per semester which can be used at the cafe, which offers a small selection of pretty good food and drinks. The dining hall staff is really friendly and does their best to suit everyone's needs, even having a long discussion with me about what can be done to make life easier for vegans and vegetarians on campus. There are lots of really great restaurants near by, in a wide range of prices.

The campus does not have a shuttle or transportation system because it is so small. You can walk at a leisurely pace from one end of campus to the other in around 7 minutes. The trail behind campus leads to downtown which is really nice. There is a grocery and small strip mall directly across the street. Most things are within easy walking distance, but nearly everything you could need is within biking distance.

Getting scholarships was pretty easy and the staff was very up front about how much I would be getting. However, you really need to stay on top of FAFSA documents, because I have had a few times where documents that the school needed were missing and they did not notify me.

Our athletics at Rochester College are decent. Our men's basketball team is probably our best athletic team at our school. This past year they won the National Championship for the USCAA. I must say that they are pretty good. We have good fan support at our games as well as school spirit.
College Sophomore 2013-05-14T00:30:27Z
The facilities at Rochester College are pretty good. We have a student center where most of our students hang out and play pool or just talk and have a good time. Also we have a gym where our sports teams practice in and where intramurals have games in. The gym is a really good place for our teams to hold practices in.
College Junior 2013-02-26T21:55:37Z
We have a great Basketball team and there is some involvement. Games are played outside of campus. We do have a Baseball team that my brother plays on. During home games, students will watch between classes if they can. We have a good school spirit. Being a small school, we don't have a basketball facility so the team uses a beautiful facility at the local high school. It can be difficult to attent baseball games because they are played betwen 1-3pm, during most classes.

Guys & Girls:
Since there are students from all economic area, no one judges anyone that I have heard, about clothes or looks. Most of the students have parents that have worked very hard to send them to this private college and no one really needs to proove anything. Dress code is everything from wearing your pajama pants to class to wearing a nice pair of jeans and a sweater and doing hair and makeup. Most of the students are clean cut to some wearing dreads and doing their "own thing". It is a great diverse group of students.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
