What Students Are Saying

La Roche College is a small, yet bustling school. Professors and students throughout the school are friendly, always smiling, and eager to help in anyway they can. I transferred here but have never felt more at home!
Sarah from Brackenridge, PA
Beautiful Campus. Everyone is very friendly. The food could use some improvement.
Franklin from Pittsburgh, PA
La Roche offers great education and diversity within the campus. You will meet lots of people and have a good time, but be able to focus on school work as well. If you are a crazy partier , this is not the place for you.
