Student Ratings

Overall Rating

Personally, I think that applicants should be aware that the atmosphere of URochester is not for those who only want to see their classroom and the inside of their dorm room for four years. With one of the country's premier music schools and a beautiful, bustling campus just outside your door, you would be doing yourself an injustice if you didn't take advantage of them.
