There are quite a few groups of people present at Rose-Hulman. No one really pays attention to gender or ethnicity, so it's not really applicable to describing the campus community.

The buildings vary in age. The buildings are well-staffed and very clean. Everyone in each dorm gets along very well with each other. Each dorm has washing facilities, television, and games such as ping-pong and table hockey. The residence halls are great.

There are very few people who use illegal drugs on campus. The worst drug use I've seen is typical cigarette and cigar use, but I haven't seen anything illegal. It's extremely easy to avoid drugs if you want, and most people obey the strict drug use policy at school anyway.

The school requires each student to purchase a laptop whose specifications are offered by the school. Everyone in the same class has the exact same laptop with the exact same starting software. The computers are awesome! The computers are expensive, but come loaded with software and a 4 year warranty. The laptops are easy to use and come with plenty of memory for what I need. There is no need for auspicious computer labs since everyone has their own laptop. It's a great computer and it does everything I need it to do.

Often, members of Greek life plan activities for students to participate in, but these activities are mostly aimed at freshman. Most of these people are really friendly, and most people don't even consider Greek status when making friends. I know of people who joined one fraternity who made friends with people in other fraternities.

The financial aid office is pretty helpful. The staff helps point out all of the various options you have. The school also offers some pretty decent scholarship opportunities as well, but your best best bet, like with any other college, is to just look for outside scholarships.

I have only heard about off-campus living from some friends. I hear pretty good things about apartments that are off-campus. I may even look more into it for my 3rd and 4th year.

I love Rose-Hulman. There's a great community of people on campus. There are a lot of friends to be made, if you choose be very social. The academics are challenging, but greatly rewarding. The professors are friendly and often helpful, even with non-academic problems. I feel like there is always something to do with a lot of great people to do befriend. It's an awesome college, and I am thankful to be a part of it.

Rose-Hulman centers around an honor code. I feel like I'm trusted to do what's right. No one forces me to strictly adhere to a certain set of rules. This is great because it allows to make my own decisions and face any consequences on my own without being told-off. Of course the school is extremely strict of illegal activity, but other than that, the honor code works and it works well.

It's fairly relaxed on weekdays. Most people I know tend to just hang out with friends and play games. The fraternities tend to throw some parties or organize events for weekends, so there is usually something to do on most nights.

The weather is crazy. It's incredibly fickle. It can be hot and sunny one day, and cloudy and cold the next. It's hard for me to predict, even after checking weather reports. Luckily, my roommate has lived in Indiana his whole life, and provides a much more accurate forecast, so even if I can't trust a news site, I can always rely on my roommate's prediction.

I rarely attend sporting events. Honestly, I never attended a full game. Sports just aren't really important to me.

My school regularly offers shuttle bus transportation. I'm not really concerned with shuttle bus transportation, though, since I have my own vehicle. I only ever used the service once, and that was just a quick trip to Wal-mart with other incoming freshman.

Freshman dorm rooms are pretty small, but manageable. Some 4 story bldgs., do not have elevators. Laundry facilities are okay, on the first floor. The resident assistants and sophomore advisors are very helpful with all types of issues....homework help, roommate issues, shopping, etc. Cost seems reasonable, and getting room assignments is a pretty smooth procedure. Everything is done well in advance.

Parking is ample, there are no fees. You really don't need a car.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T21:13:05Z
Dorm rooms are considered our private residence, so that is not an issue. Your grade is your grade, even though you may be one point from getting a higher letter grade, even though there may be a gray area, i.e. group project grades that you do not have complete control over.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T21:08:42Z
We each have our own computer, so access is not an issue. Printing is never a problem, either. Printers are many places including the lobby of the dorms. Wireless is sometimes spotty in places, but generally not a problem.
College Sophomore 2013-07-10T15:02:32Z
Everyone is as friendly as anyone can be. Professors are extremely busy but always have time to help with homework, projects, or just anything in general.
College Sophomore 2013-07-10T15:01:06Z
the fan support is somewhat down compared to high school just because kids are more focused on school work here.
College Sophomore 2013-07-10T15:00:07Z
great apartments around the area very close to campus
College Sophomore 2013-07-10T14:59:14Z
roomy and spacious. 12 foot ceilings great for lofts

Computer Labs are top notch and abundant all throughout the campus. Network speed is more than sufficient and network reliability is pristine. The computers given to my freshman class have held up very well - all components are top of the line, which allow use throughout college. The only negative I have is the weight of the Lenovo W510 (our freshman class's laptop) which is a gargantuan 7.5lb beast. On the other side of that, it is a monster computer that does anything you need and is pretty much unbreakable.

Health & Safety:
I have never felt unsafe on Rose-Hulman campus. It's fairly small, very pretty, and I haven't had any issues personally - nor have any of my friends.

Rose has excellent standards and does not have any issues with drugs and alcohol that is noticeable to the students. We have fraternities on campus, so there are of course signs of alcohol. For instance there may be beer cans in their lawn a day after a party or something. The people on campus are extremely understanding and do not judge you for what you do. In the dorms the Residential Assistants do an excellent job of making sure there is no alcohol visible in the dorms. Though some students may have small parties in their room, the doors are locked, no one gets hurt, and no one outside of the room sees anything.

We call it the Rose bubble for a reason, it is not connected to Terre Haute life at all. Its a very small campus and if you don't go to Rose people know you don't belong. There are a few restaurants and its a scenic campus
Sorry, there are no reviews.
