THE COLLEGE OF SAINT ROSE

I really liked the small classroom sizes compared to the bigger colleges and lecture halls. It's a pretty small school so you always run into someone you know or have seen before on campus. I really liked my major as well. This college was in the heart of Albany and is very easy to get around, plus there are so many options if you are bored to do something.
