History

Established in 1817 as the Baptist Education Society of the State of New York by the First Baptist Church of Hamilton, the institution had the purpose of training clergy in the Baptist tradition. However, there was a collegiate division which was separate and granted higher degrees to its students. In 1950, due to the urge of the Baptist Education Society, the university moved from Maddison, where it was originally located, to Rochester, where they were looking to build a new path and future for the university.Show more

    Academically engaging, be patient and open

    One thing to like and appreciate about the University is that the professors are truly and thoroughly well versed in their fields. It’s a 50-50 toss-up which ones are the better, more interesting lecturers, but all of them are generally very knowledgeable and friendly if you approach them for extra help outside class time. This is certainly true for Computer science classes and economics students. Student life is dominated by greek life in my opinion. A lot of people join frats or go to frat-sponsored events, especially as a freshman because they are generally the more fun, upbeat ones. And you’re more likely to have a good time with good music. But aside from Greek life, there are so many clubs it’s honestly great. Everyone can find their clique/group which can be such a plus. Food is not great though, and really depends where you go to eat. Danforth dining (or danfo) is usually the best especially if you’re a freshman, and once you live off-campus, I’d recommend having a mostly declining food plan and otherwise learning to cook for yourself. Also, the gym is alright, try and go early morning or late evening so its not too crowded.

    Good Environment, Nice Professors

    Personally I recommend this school as the professors and classmates are nice here. The professors here are nice too and the courses are hard. You should work hard if you want an A here. In our courses, there are students from the US, China, Japan and even other countries. The students are friendly and you can easily make friends here. The weakness of the campus might be the weather. It is so cold here and it snows a lot in winter. The school is always covered with snow. I must say the software and facilities are not as good as I thought here. The school does not offer students personal Adobe accounts, and for most times, you can only access some software on school computers. The software’s license provided by the school does not work well, too. Overall, I like U of R and hope more students can join us. Our school is very friendly to transfer students as well and there are many transfer students each year.

    Great Institution for research in the natural sciences.

    I have enjoyed my time as a student in this institution. I have had the opportunity to learn interesting topics and have had the opportunity to participate in research. Social life is also something to look forward to since there is an organization for everyone.

    resources to help with life after college

    I would recommend this university because it meets full financial need which allows the university to accept students from a multitude of socioeconomic backgrounds. The university is most acclaimed for the research opportunities it gives to students an opportunity to delve deeper into any field they desire. In terms of facilities, they can do a lot better regarding the living conditions, especially for your freshman and sophomore years. the one thing I don’t like about the school is the location. Rochester is freezing for 7 months of the year, so, if you do not like the cold weather you might want to consider options. there are a lot of dining options but there is a lack of diversity in food meaning most of the recipes are from the united states. 30% of the campus is involved in Greek life. we have parties and other fun activities almost every weekend.

    U of R review

    I like the fact that the school is small but not too small to the extent that you meet the same people every day. The Math / Japanese faculty here I have enjoyed very much. Good access to undergraduate research. However, I have not been enjoying introductory / lower CS courses here that much. Also, I would say that the food is good here but can get repetitive over a year, but I assume that’s the same for most schools.

    Student Resources

    Great College, amazing people although somewhat divided. This is changing though, I believe integration is slowly on the rise. Amazing student resources, from endless funding for pretty much anything all the way to personal tutors.
