I’m a prospective student from South Africa. I graduated from high school last year and then took a gap year. My family is planning to move to America and we’re considering Rochester.
I’ve been researching Universities in Northern America and my favorite so far is the University of Toronto, Canada. I want to study Anthropology and I really like what I’ve heard so far about the cultural diversity at Toronto, but I’m taking Rochester into consideration as well.
I have a few questions and would greatly appreciate it if someone could take the time to answer them.
1.) A few people have posted comments that give me the idea that Rochester is rather conservative, is this true?
2.) How is Rochester towards international students? And gay students?
3.) Are there any South African students at Rochester?
4.) What’s the Anthropology program like?
5.) What’s the deal with the no cars rule for 1st years? Are they actually allowed to do that?
6.) What’s the crime rate like?
7.) Are the libraries any good? Are there at least a few great bookstores?
Thanks in advance.
