What our students are saying

I was from a small town and high school. I was really successful in high school but in undergrad I struggled because the classes were not very personal. At Roseman I like being in the small classroom and knowing everyone in the class including the professors.

MBS Class of 2023

I love this block schedule. It's amazing because it requires us to work hard. If we do get extra days off, we can work towards other initiatives that make us better.

Amritpal B.

MBS Class of 2023

There's no place that I'd rather be but here. It probably has been the best time that I've ever spent in the last couple of years. I love it here so much, and for the classes too! All the faculty are extremely receptive.”
