The College of Saint Rose is a college of its motto, 'Passion knowledge and purpose'. P.K.P for short, the motto defines both the college, its students, as well as the effort put forth by both the college and its students. Saint Rose makes much possible, while at the same time constantly challenging you to improve.
Laura from Little Falls, NY
saint rose has a passionate faculty who care both for the curriculum they teach and the students they teach it to. it's a tiny college in a grand sea but still floats and is something to marvel at. the student body isn't afraid to speak up about injustice on campus.
cydney from albany, ny
I would absolutely give The College of Saint Rose a high rating. It did not take me long at all to know that this is where I wanted to go; in fact, it is the only school I applied to! I could not imagine myself anywhere else right now.
