Student Reviews
  • I like the unique and open-mindedness of the students and faculty here at Roosevelt. The dedication to social justice is what brought me to this school and they do a pretty good job at committing to it. I've made many great friends while living in the Wabash building and the view is to die for! However, this school is really expensive.
  • I love it here! This school is a good fit for anyone looking to be in the field of social justice. I like the hands-on experiences and how helpful the professors are. The students are friendly and pretty helpful. There are tons of stores around campus and it's located in the heart of downtown Chicago which is a cool place to be.
  • The school is small but has a great feel to it. Its in the city so you also get to experience what is around and learn to explore. The class sizes are small which is beneficial to both the students and staff. The Wabash buliding is relatively new which is great. The views from the dorms are amazing. Current students and staff are very helpful and welcoming.
