Reasons to attend and to not attend University of Rochester

To Attend

  • “It has a free curriculum. You only have to take Writing 105.”
  • “Access to professors and research is really, really easy. I had friends who worked in labs their freshman fall. I also have friends who are friends with professors and got their first internship just by asking. All of the doors are open.”
  • “It’s a good size and it’s on the edge of a city without being engulfed by one. If you want that campus feeling where you feel a little bit separate from the area around you, that’s good.”
  • “It’s a great community. There are a lot of smart and interesting people.”

To Not Attend

  • “If you’re susceptible to seasonal depression, it’s not the place for you. It’s very hard academically and, if you haven’t seen the sun in a couple of days, you’re probably not going to want to be here.”
  • “There is no school spirit. If you’re looking to be on a sports team, nobody is going to go to your games no matter how good you are.”
  • “If you’re expecting a huge, crazy party scene, it’s not going to be that.”
