Will learn a lot
I got to sit in a class to see how classes were run here and the professors know what they're talking about and they really care about their students.
Will enjoy being here
There is a lot to do here including: sports, clubs, part-time jobs, research projects, and more
Bang for the buck
The education is worth the money here for sure. When I visited one of the chemistry classes, the professor went on with his planned lesson and I actually understood him (but when my high school teacher was teaching that same lesson, I couldn't understand at all). This place is well educated and helps their students succeed daily!
Tips for prospective students
You should sit in a class and see how stunning the professor's lessons are, go to chapel to really soak yourself in their culture, and eat at their diner (the variety of food in stunning and their cookies are delicious!).
Great for these types of students
-Christian students who are interested in science and are afraid that it will contradict their beliefs
-Anyone who wants to be part of a Christian community and grow emotionally and spiritually

The atmosphere at Roberts is awesome! All the students and staff are so friendly. It's easy to meet people and there is always something fun to do.

The education I'm receiving at Roberts is definitely worth the money. While it is a little pricey, overall with financial aid, it's totally worth it.

Great for these types of students
Roberts is a great fit for Christian students who want a liberal arts education.

I really enjoy the Christian atmosphere here at Roberts Wesleyan College. I really feel like the professors care for their students and the student: teacher ratio here makes it a more close knit environment. I feel like I've gotten a quality education here.
Tips for prospective students
If you are looking for a more intimate environment, then this is a great school. The campus is open to the community and provides many opportunities to reach out in the surrounding areas. I'd like to forewarn any prospective students about the weather though, because the college is in Rochester and it experiences a lot of lake-effect snow due to its relative proximity to Lake Ontario.
Academic Rigor
It is not highly competitive here. There's an honors program. I definitely feel like I've grown intellectually while being at Roberts Wesleyan College.
Dorm Life
It is a relatively quiet campus. Because it is a dry campus, you won't find students partying in your dorm building, which is a plus because you won't have the unpleasant task to stepping over students passed out from drunkenness in the hallway like you'd find in many other colleges. Even though Roberts Wesleyan College is a Christian liberal arts college and it has rules and regulations, you won't find the rules as strict as they would be in other Christian colleges.
Food and Dining
Unlike a lot of other colleges and universities, Roberts Wesleyan College provides its students with a variety of healthy food choices. We have a grill in the Athletic building, a café in the library, and a dining commons with food prepared by the employees themselves. The dining commons provides students with many options during the different mealtimes of the day.
What to do for fun
There are usually activities held on the weekends here at Roberts Wesleyan College. There have been trips to indoor waterparks, ice skating rinks, snow tubing, movies, trips to outlet malls, lazertag, and more. I also highly suggest that students bring their own car or become friends with someone who has a car so that on days when there are no special events planned, they can go down into the city of Rochester (which is about a fifteen-minute drive from campus).
Bang for the buck
The quality of the education here on campus is a testament to the tuition, you really do get a bang for your buck here. The facilities are updated. I really feel like the people who work here at Roberts Wesleyan College really want to help the students.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Everyone loves the library because it is such a comfortable place to go study and meet up, it is still a fairly new building and is environmentally friendly. I have friends who come visit me from a nearby university and they have commented on how well-kept (and new) the furniture and student hang-out places are because many campuses seem to have outdated technology and furniture. An unusual tradition here on campus is the notion of Ring by Spring because many of the couples here at Roberts Wesleyan College seem to get engaged during Spring semester.
Great for these types of students
Roberts Wesleyan College is great for students looking to be involved not only in their campus, but also in the community. Roberts offers a lot of community outreaches and missions trips. Also, because of the small student population (about 1,200), students are pretty close knit and it is easy to build relationships with people and you can easily recognize many of your peers on campus after a few weeks.
Clubs and Activities
As I mentioned before, there are many outreaches in the college. Our SIFE team (Students In Free Enterprise) recently won the regionals and will soon be competing in the national competition. There is a drama club, a dance club, ACT:S (a club that raises awareness on many of the pressing issues today), musical groups, and more.
Greek Life
There is no Greek life. This isn't a bad thing though. Because Roberts is Christian College, they encourage all of their students to be involved in helping the community.
Campus Safety
I've always felt safe here on campus. You rarely hear of any altercations among students. Everyone seems to look out for each other here.
