    Great for these types of students

    Students whom love to travel--whether by train or by car. Center City is rather close. Students who love visiting museums, sight-seeing, and/or shopping. It's all here. The college is in a suburb, but the atmosphere is still fast-paced and populated.

    Tips for prospective students

    Freshmen can drive cars.

    Bang for the buck

    The academics are great, but the sports and activities aren't worth the tuiton. Room and board are also WAY overpriced.

    Did enjoy being here

    I loved the close proximity from my dorm to my classes. The campus is also scenic, and the buildings are beautiful. Sports and activities are weak, but my difficulty was that I was homesick.

    Did learn a lot

    Professors are GREAT. They really have the expertise in each of their fields. Especially in Honors courses, they treat you as an adult and respect your intelligence. Two of my favorite professors are from Rosemont College. Teaching doesn't just apply to classes; seminars and travelling outside of class may be required for intellectual enhancement.

    There is none.

    What to do for fun

    Make friends. What you can't find on campus, you can find in the heart of Philly by getting on a train or using a car.

    Food and Dining

    It would be neat if there were longer hours and better tasting food.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is good. Having the right room mate helps. Rosemont does alot to make sure you're paired up with the right person if you don't know anyone.

    Academic Rigor

    My classes were just right.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come with your mind made up to succeed. This school is expensive so you must remember work first, play second.

    In three sentences

    The school is small but great for people who need help staying focused. The professors are able to give you individual attention and recognize your strengths and weaknesses. Campus living is a little on the slow side, but that can be a good thing for some people.
