Roberts is a mixed bag

Apr 19 2013History/Histories (art history/etc.)
Roberts is a mixed bag. Students are generally nice enough...within the limited "christian" mold which Roberts has historically attracted. Thankfully this is being slowly broken (much to the dismay of the old guard) by the transition to NCAA DII and the addition of new sports teams (lacrosse in particular has helped diversify the student body away from its traditional student base). Campus life is "dry", meaning that there are parties (among some groups) but they are generally quiet about it. My general impression is that most students don't party, drink, have sex, etc. Be aware of what you are getting yourself into socially, this isn't a college for partying or letting loose. A "fun night" for most students is, as others have said, a movie with friends. Although near Rochester, most students exist in the "Roberts bubble", interaction with the community is very limited.

Academics at Roberts, at least in my major, are a joke. Classes are (for the most part) cursory level. History classes in particular have the tendancy (due to professors bias) of becoming little more than church history classes, at the expense of studying anything else that has happened. Religous classes are required, but a student can do well in them with little effort. Of course some majors are harder (nursing comes to mind), but for the most part this is not an academically challenging college. Few students seem to do any individual research or large scale projects, and there are very few (if any) projects which combine student and faculty efforts.The campus itself is fairly standard. Most of the buildings have been done over recently, or will be in the immediate future. Support staff does a good job of keeping things in working order, but the campus gets a bit rough during the winter months (pathway clearance is a HUGE problem on this campus). Speaking of winter months, snow and cold weather dominate much of the year.

This school is the most terrible place ever

Nov 27 2013Unknown
This school is the most terrible place ever. I stay locked in my room most of the time. The people that are "christian" are so judgmental and not trustworthy what's so ever. They are all fake. They act like your friend and talk behind your back. The small campus is terrible, everyone knows everything about you. Any relation you have with a guy is like a game of telephone and all of a sudden you are a whore on campus, when all you do is hangout. Religion is probably the worst part of this school. They say that it's suppose to open your mind about religion and give opportunities but In reality it is shoved down your throat. You are required to attend 22 chapel classes or you have to pay 100 dollars. The chapel classes are dreadful and forced you to sing and listen to a speaker explain why it's okay to be a holy roller.Every class they make you pray and no matter where you go that require that you participate. It's one thing to believe in god and another thing to be so over the top where you want to make people scream and drive others away from it. Religion is so over the top everywhere on campus and you become preached at. Words cannot describe how ridiculous religions is here. The rules in the dorms are also ridiculous. Guys are only allowed in five days a week, 6pm to 11 pm with the doors open and light on. Otherwise you are required to be In the lounge where a camera is. You are not allowed to make your own decisions as an adult, they make it for you.Campus security is everywhere. Mom pulls up to pick me up and campus security is right there wondering what she is doing. Next the food is terrible. It's all the stereotypical gross lunch food. It does not look appealing and most is fried anyways. Instead of gaining the freshman 15 , you lose it. You leave hungry and I know many including myself who still get upset stomachs.There is also no night life what so ever. If you are over 21 alcohol is still banned on the campus and they enforce it . If you want to have fun do NOT come to this school. I tried to have fun one night and I was caught and suspended within ten minutes! You walk out on Friday and Saturday night and all people do is watch movies and is asleep by 11. The campus is dead. The academics also are not that good. The science and nursing programs are the only good programs, everything else is average. Also the sports teams are average. None are very good because they are " Christian" and they do not believe in violence. Therefore, they are nice when they play sports. At this school you are not allowed to experience college and are unable to grow. You are constantly bound by rules and supervision. You are treated like a child and never allowed to make your own decisions. You are just one of their cult that they want to conform. I've been so depressed while I've been here and have no been so upset in my entire life. I'll be lucky if I make it through next semester. If you want college to be complete hell , please come to this school.
