| College of New Rochelle: This school has a great nursing program, but other than that it seems everyone goes for the financial aid package or scholarships, which seem to be handed out pretty generously. The architecture here is positively beautiful, and you feel pretty safe with the constant guards circling the campus. It is a very small school, and you have to get use to the entire campus knowing everything about everyone else. CNR is very close to NYC so if you are willing to take the half hour train ride, you are golden for a social life. However, there is absolutely none to be found on campus. Guests are very restricted for when they can visit, and this school has very strict substanance policies. School spirit is low, so sport events are not very exciting. The students who find most success here are those who commute and do not feel trapped here. This place highly values a liberal arts education, so if that is what you are looking for, you will find it in CNR. If you were hoping on working straight out of college, I suggest you find something with a more direct system with more real-life education available. |

| This school is awful. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. The people who graduated in the 1980's have nice things to say about it, but not me, or several other CURRENT students. |
This school is a joke. A lot of the girls who go here are very socially awkward. Nothing here is updated. The school will lure you in with a free laptop, but they don't use the internet for anything. You won't get your final grades at the end of the semester until 3-4 weeks later because they don't even use online grading. There is no online registration for classes, and the overall campus communication is horrible.
The campus is not student-oriented AT ALL. There is nothing fun to do on campus. One res hall has a ping-pong table in a random room in the basement. The cafeteria hours are ridiculous. On weekdays, dinner ends at 6:30, and on weekends, the caf is open from 11:30-1:30 and 5-6. It is a JOKE. There are no fun events here. The sports teams suck. Guest policies are completely irrational. (Guys can't sleep over, and friends can't stay over more than 3 nights in the same week.)Even the library closes at 11 every night. Most colleges libraries close at 3AM, or stay open all the time. There's not even picnic tables on this campus. Everyone just sits in their rooms and does nothing.
As for the nursing school, the programs are very well structured, and there are no seemingly-useless classes that are required. However, it is very poorly managed and sloppy, which, unfortunately is at the students' expense. I regret going here everyday. I'm only here to get my nursing degree, plus transferring is a bitch. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. THIS PLACE IS MISERABLE, EXPENSIVE, AND BORING.

| CNR (and single sex education) has had a tremendous influence on my personal and professional life. CNR is a "community" of talented and devoted professors, dedicated staff, and unique young women. The school places a high value on individual talent. If you envision a visit to Lincoln Center as part of an Intro to Music class or a UN internship, then CNR is the place for you. If you are into all-night partying and worrying about your appearance, clothes, etc. then you would be wise to go elsewhere. That being said, you could probably expect social life to be a combination of mixers, off-campus bars, outings to NYC and visits to Fordham, Iona, Manhattan College, etc. |
I am an active alumna and have met current students and recent grads over the years. The student body is more diverse (race, religion, social attitudes) than in prior decades, however, the type of student that chooses CNR has remained the same: mature and self-confident with a curiosity about the world around her.
