I received an MS and CAS with 78 + graduate credit hours "under my belt" at CSR. Therefore, I have had more than a "brief encounter " with this institution. I feel that my opinions have some degree of objectivity.|
CSR seems much more interested in the politics of State Education Department,and their own departments(eg not exactly "boat rockers").
Money is much more important than quality. Once you get in, it's a "money pit" cul-de-sac that you cannot get out of. You know"...by the way, you need one more course in order to graduate/earn your certificate,sorry about that. No one told you about this new requirement?... and we do take checks!". When this pattern repeats itself on more than 3 occasions, it's not good.
CSR produces more unemployable teachers than any other private liberal arts college in upstate( eg credential factory).
CSR seems to "cook " graduate employment numbers.
Many faculty are opinionated and in some cases prejudiced by preconceived ideology. This comes across in the learning and grading process. They do not often "practice what they preach."
I have found that many of the adjuncts are better educators and less concerned with "internal college/turf issues"
Grading and assessment of students is arbitrary and not a valid measure of current economic and educational realities. It seems to be correlated with how much you look like the professor in any given, but not every, course.

| Overall, it was a great little place to get a Master's degree. Decent program - easy - but worthwhile. I can't comment on social life or campus activities as I came and went just for classes. The campus is small, and at the time, there was pretty much just one academic building - but I understand they have added a state of the art Education building. A good place to get your Master's if living in the area. |

| I have been very disappointed with my experiences at The College of Saint Rose. A majority of my professors have not even been employees of the College, rather other professionals that teach a night course for extra $$. My course work has not been challenging. The offices at the College (Graduate Admissions, Field Placement, Registrar) have been frustrating to deal with. They seem to run in an extremely inefficient manner. I have been given conflicting information from different offices, and sent around in circles trying to get my questions answered. For a private institution and the amount of money I am paying, I would expect much more. I am extremely dissatisfied with The College of Saint Rose and if I had it to do all over again I definitely would choose another institution. I do not recommend this College.|
