I live on campus but I have been looking around apartments and the cost is so cheap like 550 a month including everything. I just don't have a job and I heard the people are real picky on who they choose. But the estates themselves are very kept up and only blocks from campus it is just nice.

The food here is better then my high school's food so that is one good thing. Sometimes they serve the same thing for like a week tough so it get's pretty annoying. The only part that sucks is on the weekends they open till 1 then close till five so if you miss it you kind of have to starve.

It is okay. The walls kinda make you feel like you are in a cell but other wise it is nice. I ave a very spacious room. The A/C and heat are great. The lounge area gets really good use from all of us in the dorm.

Most of the buildings are older and the campuses age shows. The campus is going through a huge renovation project however so this grade will probably be different next year.

Campus security is really cool and cops are non existent on campus. RAs can be annoying at times but if caught drinking for the first time you just have to write a short paper to the school. Legal trouble is almost impossible

Over 20 percent of the school is involved in collegiate athletics and their is a lot of opportunity to participate. For awhile Baseball was the only successful sport on campus but that is changing.

Their are a few people that smoke on campus but it really is a non issue here. Weed can be found but that is about as hardcore as it gets. Hooka is extremely popular among foreign students.

Rockford is known to have a bad reputation but it actually isn't that bad. The part of town where the University is has every type of shop, restaurant, or amenity within a five to ten minute drive.

The parking on campus can be annoying at times as certain dorms don't have parking lots immediately near the building but no parking lot on this campus is more than a three minute walk. Cummings complex, Ekvall, Dayton, and Svenson have parking lots immediately nearby. Olson and Caster require a short walk.

As a psychology major I enjoy my classes and the professors are really helpful and willing to give one-on-one time when you need it. Unfortunately most of the classes are theory based with little skill development or application outside of possibly getting an internship. Even then it is hard to get one in the area you want to work in. Overall, however, the program is a good one for giving a solid foundation.

Public transportation is limited around Rockford College. Buses don't come down to the main buildings so you have to walk until you come to one on the outskirts of the campus, but service is good so if you have the number for a cab company or know when the school shuttles are operating you can use one of them to take you where you need to go.

There could be spots closer to the buildings, but with the campus layout it is impossible.

There always seems to be a problem when it comes to financial aid. They never seem to get it 100% correct.
College Senior 2013-07-07T17:28:47Z
I really enjoy this major. The work load is just right. There are many opportunities for employment after graduation because of internships.

Rockford College needs to be more open to the United Negro College Fund for its African American Students. This particular organization has loads and loads of scholarships, however they do not apply to Rockford College at all. Bummer!!

I am a chemistry major, I love my chemistry classes and the experiments we do. However, I did have a hard time last semester with my grades. I barely passed three of my classes last semester with nothing but Cs. If I could I would love to have been ready for school ahead of time and do things on time and get A's. My goal is to find a career in pharmaceuticals such as Walgreens or other bigger pharmacy companies such as Fisher Pharmaceuticals. As for finding a job I have no concerns with all of the opportunities being offered at my school, especially job opportunies.

some computers might not work or the printer doesnt work but good variety of computers are available.
College Sophomore 2013-01-15T21:22:36Z
They have computers to use in pretty much every building which is very helpful. Its sucks at the library tho because the wireless can crash at times. Also in the dorms it crashes frequently.

They have a special dorm for newbies that does not allow alcohol. But I feel that its not too bad of a school there really isn't a lot of peer pressure as long as you stay with the right people. Just like any school with alcohol. You can only have beer and wine coolers.

Umm to be a reading teacher you first have to take the TAP test which sucks big time because they do not have it at the school. You have to take it at another local school. I have not taken it yet so I do not know about the program yet.
College Sophomore 2013-01-15T21:11:24Z
The majors to chose from are pretty standard. Its an old fashion school so I feel that the majors are the same way.

There is tight security on the campus. Securtiy guards drive through consistently making for a safe environment

There are many restaurants in the area. There is also easy access to public trasnsportation and plenty of shopping stores in the area!

There is a diverse selection. Whatever you have a taste for you will find it.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
