This school is completely disorganized and provides noNot so brightBusiness - Management and Administration
This school is completely disorganized and provides no information for students that are enrolled there. Registration is hard to get through, expect tuition each each to increase dramatically, and if you have scholarships, expect the admissions office to figure out a way to decrease them. The actual 10 year professors here do not know how to tech the students and do not help students even when they ask for it, it seems they just care about the titles they have and the security and not the students. It is only the professors they hire as term by term professors that actually care about the students and in my two years here so far, I have only met one professor that actually cared for his job and his students. This school is great at appearances, they will tell you what you want to hear, and what they want you to know, but not much of the truth. I am in the business college here, and I know in this degree will be hard to get through because you will be left on your own to pass all your classes as my advisor Audrey Guy and my one professor Peter Sigiols has done to me. The classes here are not that stimulating, they are quite boring and you will struggle to not fall asleep in most of them. I would not recommend anyone that has a choice to go to any other school, to enroll in this college, as it truly disappointed me which is why I am transferring university's once again.

I had a wonderful experience at Roosevelt.Political Science
I had a wonderful experience at Roosevelt. I was in the Political Science department and thought it was everything I wanted from a small college. The social justice mission is so cohesive-- it does not matter what you want to study, they WILL find a way for you to change the world with your degree. Most people simply don't choose to carry that on after college is over. For some of the complaints I've heard about Roosevelt from other people, I've usually found most of those problems at nearly all educational institutions. Millenials want everything in one, nice package and it just doesn't happen that way.

I had a great social life because I balanced it between friends on-campus and friends that were just living in Chicago. I was really involved and made that effort whereas many who were unhappy did not. If you're going to go to Roosevelt, don't bother with Schaumburg-- the heart of Roosevelt is downtown and that's where the happiest people are. The school is a racial harmony beyond any place I've ever been and I am still so proud of that fact as an alumnus. Overall, Roosevelt is a wonderful, extremely liberal small private school that will prepare you to change the world. If you don't like what that will inevitably offer, you'll hate it. If you're looking for a very supportive environment, an awesome mission, and a tight-knit student body, you'll surely love it.
