Home to one of the country’s most prestigious music schools, as well as uniquely flexible undergraduate programs and an award-winning faculty, Rochester University in Rochester, New York, has received recognition from numerous publications for its challenging academics and research activities.
Rochester University is a school that values the arts, and thus provides numerous activities related to artistic expression.

Historically a top-ranking conservatory, Rochester’s Eastman School of Music is one of its more outstanding academic offerings.

Rochester’s undergraduate academics also offer a unique flexibility, allowing students to focus almost exclusively on their major while taking only three general education requirements in disciplines of their choice.
The campus has are several art galleries, as well as theatre and dance productions and more than 20 student organizations dedicated to music, theatre and dance.
Prospective undergraduates will need to submit an application, transcripts, recommendation letters and SAT scores. If they need assistance with tuition costs, students may also apply for financial aid.
100% of students gave University of Rochester 5 stars overall.
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.
