Take an over-night visit and explore the campus and see what it would be like to live here. Also check out a classroom or two and the learning center were every student goes for help, even those at the top of their class. More than likely, it's the learning center that put them there.

Get involved.

1) Visit the campus. If you're not into the smaller campus and small student body, you'll know after visiting. Conversely, if you're not sure about what type of campus you're looking for, visiting will really help. Take AP and IB courses and really challenge yourself to prepare for the workload.

Consider what you really would like your college experience to be like before you make your college experience. Rose-Hulman is a great Institution, but it is not for everyone.

Petition the Financial Aid Office to review your aid package.
Try to get work opportunity.

Come to Rose! It may be a little intimidating at first but it doesn't take long to get accustomed to the work load of this top tier college.
Jeremy from Greencastle, IN
Be ready to work hard! Rose-Hulman can be a lot of fun, but you have to commit a lot of time and effort into your schoolwork. A lot of students that attend Rose didn't have to try very hard to make A's in high school. That changes when you get to Rose.
Candice from Jasper, IN
Make sure you visit colleges that you are considering. My visit to campus is what sold me on Rose-Hulman. Also, for juniors, consider looking into Operation Catapult, a summer program for rising seniors, to get a real Rose-Hulman experience.

If you're looking for an easy and partying college experience, this is NOT the place for you. You come to this school to work your butt off, but once you're out, everything else is easy--even grad school!

Although this school is very expensive, as long as you're passionate about what you're studying and want to do what you study when you graduate, don't worry about the money. You'll make it back and then some.

Be prepared to get creative for fun, as Rose is in the middle of Terre Haute, Indiana. Having a car/knowing someone with a car (trust me, people will have cars as freshman) is a huge plus because then you have lots of freedom to go wherever you want.

I hope you enjoyed a bell schedule, quarters, and classes everyday in high school (unless you were on a block schedule). Rose has 9 periods during the day and freshman courses are 5 days a week. You normally won't have 9 straight periods of classes unless yo're trying to graduate early or double major. You get breaks and pick what times you want classes (usually). As you move into higher level classes, they are only 3 or 4 days a week, sometime even 1 or 2. You can pick your professors and classes and you'll usually get what you want.
