WHAT I LIKED

Roosevelt is an extremely diverse institution. A place that makes learning fun and enjoyable. Located in an amazing city with amazing teachers. No reason for anyone to not like Roosevelt.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I would say the cost. It is a private institution. Meaning not much aid is given.

WHAT I LIKED

The professors were incredibly helpful and passionate about what they teach. The campus culture promotes the inclusion of everybody, no matter your race, gender, or sexual orientation. I truly felt like I belonged to these inspiring, bold group of individuals.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There was nothing I didn't like about Roosevelt University, however, there are only certain classes that are offered on the Chicago campus. For somebody who lives in the suburbs, the commute may be kind of long.

WHAT I LIKED

What I like about Roosevelt University is that there’s a SSS STEM Program that helps you advance and gives you tips on how to keep pushing for your degree. This program helps students like me who don’t have a direct connection to this whole world of academic professionalism, most students who are part of the program are low-income students that are first-generation. Another program I am part of that is very good is the honors program at Roosevelt. The staff engages with you helping you choose the right major when you explain the intended career you plan to pursue! They also have students take honors classes to prepare them for graduate school, which I am so excited about myself. I am glad I was straightaway eligible for this program. As a transfer student, I was looking for institutions that would accept all of my credits. Roosevelt University transferred all of my credits from Morton College. I later found out that there are community colleges that have transferable credits to Roosevelt University!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It’s a really tall building and if you want to walk on campus outside you would be in the downtown area of Chicago rather than an actual outside like UIC where students sit outside.
