Rochester College is like a home away fromReligion/Religious
Rochester College is like a home away from home. It is where I met my wife, it is where I learned who I was and what I was about. Education like anything is something that the STUDENT must participate and work within, it is not something given...it is something earned. Many want their education spoon fed to them...if that is you than RC is not the school for you. To be honest no academic institution worth anything will work out for lazy, know it alls who are clueless regarding how education actually occurs. If you are ready to work and learn...than RC is the place for you. Professors and staff are like family friendships will be attained that last a lifetime and student life it well integrated into the overall college experience. There will be times where it feels like the professors hold an untenable expectation...suck it up and work harder, its for your own good. While response time can be slow remember this is education...not customer service...so be patient and if all else fails figure it out yourself. This is work...education is supposed to be difficult and challenging. It is meant to bend and break you so that you grow and mature. It hurts and at times...downright sucks...suck it up and grind through it. Believe me it is worth it.

Rochester college provides a great learning atmosphere. I thought the professors were fair and related all the topics of the business classes to the real world. I would highly recommend Rochester College to other students.

Question
I've had nothing but problems at this college.Not so brightArt & Design Department
I've had nothing but problems at this college. It is nearly impossible to contact anyone to help you with problems you may have. Instead of trying to figure out your problem, you are given short answers and it feels like you were not even listened to. You will be told to always contact someone else to answer your question. Some e-mails will take days for certain departments to get back to you. Again, instead of really trying to understand a student's problem, the faculty are extremely rude. Why act so unfriendly when a student has never been rude and is simply trying to understand? If you state problems that you are having, certain faculty (not all) will not apologize and will ignore the overall picture. I have never seen faculty so unfriendly when I am trying to explain something to them. If it is such a small school, why is it so difficult to be helped? Any information that should be sent to you, won't. They told students that we would be contacted to set up our first appointment to schedule for classes, but I never was. YOU have to contact them and make sure you are on top of everything, especially regarding your schedule. You will not get an apology for behavior or for their mistakes. It's all blamed on something you didn't do, like the students are supposed to know exactly how to deal with problems the college created. It took nearly a month to deal with just one problem. I am a person that always tries to stay on top of things and takes my education seriously. You would think a college would treat a student like that a bit better. I really wanted to like this school, but have had countless problems and not a good experience so far.
