    Students that are interest should have a well-rounded high school record. The students and admissions like to see students that are not solely involved in studying academic work. The student body at the University of Rochester gets involved on-campus by either getting a job, playing a sport, joining a club, or performing in one of the fine arts. Getting involved in college is something that employers like to see, and it is why the University of Rochester student population is committed to getting involved.
