This is the worst place on earth. The weather makes you depressed, the work load makes you depressed, the social life sucks, this school is filled with a bunch of weirdos. I had fun in high school, I went out - drank, smoked. This school is for weirdos and people who are experimenting partying for the first time.I unfortunately applied to this god forsaken place. I am advising you who are reading this not to. If you want the "4 Best Years of Your Life" to suck and be a waste of time, please come here! Rochester will only make you regret your decision every damn day that you are here. Every time you want to believe that something good is happening, something bad happens. Nothing can go right in this stupid motherfucking hell hole of a school. The president is way too conservative and is actively trying to squeeze every ounce of fun out of this place. D-Day, the school's huge "party" day used to be a top-15 college party in the country. Now, it is a stupid family day where we should celebrate the community and the douchebag school that makes us want to jump of the bridge to Phase or jump in the Genesse River everyday. Why would I want to spend the "best" day of the year celebrating this school when I should be getting so black out drunk that I completely forget that I go here. When I look back on my life this is the only regret that I ever had - attending this school. If you have the opportunity to never ever drive through Rochester, please never come here. This place sucks balls.
“School has one of the worst career centers.BrightChemistry
School has one of the worst career centers. The counselors have no real experience and act more as a therapist than a helpful guide. The alumni network is also not very strong. Most students are very self driven and have goals for professional degrees after graduation. Much of the science faculty seem more interested in their research than helping the students. Name of the school is not that well recognized and paying the enormous tuition is not justified.
“Very difficult course work but top notch academics.BrightBiology
Very difficult course work but top notch academics. The social life is obscenely bad now that the university is hunting Greek life to extinction. As someone involved in the student government, I have seen first hand the wasted tuition dollars and poor use of funds. Truly, the school does not care about its students. We are all just more money in their pockets. The food is bad, the weather is bad, the social life is bad. That being said, you WILL graduate here with a top notch education and a clear path to the graduate school. Take advantage of the research opportunities if you come here. I highly recommend you stay as far away as possible from this damn place however. Don't be another number in their ledger. I've been involved in multiple organizations on campus including sports, student government, and Greek life. My two years here have been miserably ever since administration started a witch hunt into Greek life and treating half the school as second class citizens. No one should be barred from speaking with their friends for months. Avoid at all cost, unless you only care about academics and are okay spending 4 years burried in a book.
