What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
It all depends on the classes you take and the professors you have. Some grade more harshly than others, and some classes are easier than others. Same as any other school. The general education classes are pretty easy, but still take them seriously.
Jessica from Naperville, IL
The teachers really challenge the students with the academic work.
Cianelle from Richton Park, IL
Because of the small class sizes, the professors can really cater to your needs, but this also means that they will push you to go above and beyond your best.
Michelle from Plainfield, IL
Roosevelt University is very challenging academically. Each professor I've had was great at teaching because they were willing to be tough on students. They are curmudgeonly old crones that give out abundant work. The hardest class I had so far was surprisingly an English class. The professor pushed us to reach a higher level of reading comprehension and it worked because the assignments were fun yet challenging. I think the academic rigor at Roosevelt University is challenging because the professors are passionate about their jobs.
Patrick from Rolling Meadows, IL
I have found all the classes, online and on-campus, that I've taken so far to be rigorous and academically challenging. The bulk of my classes have been online and the level of time management that one needs to take these classes is unparalleled. Additionally, the level of difficulty for each class has been pretty even. I've take some 100 level classes that demanded as much quality of work as some 300 level classes! The professors are quite good about requiring excellence from their students and the work they produce.
Kerri from Chicago, IL
The classes are small and there are many mentor that can help. So the education here is high.
