Roosevelt University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Roosevelt University Online B.A program took great discipline and I did well, but I needed to continue on to Boston University to complete me M.A in criminal justice with a concentration in Cyber-Security and still struggling to find a job. I'm an honors student with a B.A and will complete 3 more classes online to finish my Boston M.A and I'm looking to attend law school @ Mitchell & Hamline to continue my education until I find a steady job after leaving banking of 14 years.
After completing Community College, I was unsure what steps to take next to further my education. My Mom's concern was that she wanted me closer to home. After doing research at a few local colleges, I decided to give Roosevelt University Chicago an opportunity. The building was beautiful and inviting, it appeared to be like a real engaged university, and it didn't hurt that it was down the street from my place of employment. I had an opportunity to meet new friends, network, and grow as a professional student. I really enjoyed my experience there, and I have just been accepted to return to Roosevelt this fall to complete my Masters of Science Degree in Human Resources. I'm very nervous, as my life has changed drastically after the birth of my son, but I super excited for the possibilities and doors that may open for me returning back to school. I'm glad I've decided to to it.
I did not like the counseling services for Roosevelt. They were not very helpful, it was mostly hands off and it was difficult to get answers for questions. However, I went to NIU for my undergrad and the English department counseling services were amazing.
Roosevelt University's program of study in sustainability studies was very challenging/rewarding and so worth it. I am very happy with the program courses couple with purposeful field studies. The professors are very knowledgeable in the field and the Director of the program Michael Bryson, Ph.D. challenges students but he is very fair. His expectations are very high but this is the reason the program is successful. I earned a degree in this program and feel confident it was worth the time.
Being a Sociology major, I have taken some very interesting classes. The professors make one want to think outside the box and encourage dialog. This has been the most exciting part for me (especially attending college after thirty plus years of motherhood and homemaking).
