You should only go to this university if your family has a lot of money or if you have scholarship money that pays for most of the tuition. The campus is a bit on the smallish side, but that's okay. Some of the students here are quirky, but in a positive way. Each person is different in every different way, so this school achieves diversity in all aspects. In terms of education, there are some bad professors, but most of them only teach low level classes. However, there are more good professors than bad ones. If you need help, they are readily available and if you can't schedule an appointment, you can always email them.

Food is shitty and if you get to lunch/dinner late you won't get anything because all the good things will be gone. I lived on lemonade and take out for a long time.

The city of Rochester is pure crap, so leaving campus is silly and not even an option.
It's HELLA hot in the summer; the dorms are mega stuffy.
I'm all for a challenge in school, but URoch overloads you with work. You won't have time for a life - or sleep - while you're here. I'm transferring and going back to civilization hopefully ASAP.

The school is really what you make of it. If you isolate yourself and don't make any effort to be involved you will probably have a miserable time. Take the initiative to find something you love and be involved and you will have an awesome time while getting an excellent education.
