The Rosemont Difference
Each Rosemont student participates in a special assessment program at the beginning of their first year to evaluate their individual academic skills, personality traits, and learning styles. Their findings are then reviewed and applied to a personalized learning plan that gives them a better understanding of their abilities. This plan serves as a touchstone to chart academic growth and progress, helping foster success both at Rosemont and beyond.
Learning without limits
With a student body composed of 53% minority students, Rosemont encourages a community that embraces diversity, change, and inclusion. The College’s core values are:
- Trust in and reverence for the dignity of each person
- Diversity in human culture and experience
- Persistence and courage in promoting justice with compassion
Rosemont students have the opportunity to study abroad for a summer, a semester, or a year. Recently, students have traveled to England, Italy, France, Ireland, Greece, Cuba, India, and Australia.
Theory and Practice
Traditional undergraduate students can choose from twenty-seven academic majors. Regardless of their area of study, their education comes in two crucial components: academic curriculum and experiential learning. All students complete the curriculum for their respective major as well as at least one experiential component, which can take the form of service learning, an internship, or study abroad.
With small classes, Rosemont professors often teach “on location.” Their classrooms can span across a plethora of cultural and educational sites in Philadelphia or even in a foreign country, studying everything from policy to languages.
The student body is comprised of more than 400 undergraduate students, with a student-to-faculty ratio of 10:1 and an average class size of 12. This allows for more personal classroom attention. Approximately 75 percent of full-time faculty members hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field.
Rosemont offers many opportunities to grow, ranging from involvement in student organizations and clubs to athletics and service to the community. Having fun is easy through the Residence Life staff, as they easily get the word out to the 70% of students who live on campus. With at least one campus event per weekend, Rosemont students always have something to do!
The City of Philadelphia
Philadelphia is only a twenty-minute train ride from campus, and the school’s close proximity to the city provides students with plenty of cultural and social opportunities, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Philadelphia Orchestra; the Pennsylvania Ballet; and such sporting events as Phillies, Flyers, and Eagles games. There are also shops, movie theaters, restaurants, and bookstores located within walking distance of the campus.
Career Services and Alumni
Through coursework, internships, service, and study abroad, Rosemont students learn to apply classroom concepts to real-life situations. The Office of Career Services helps students prepare to search for jobs and enter the professional world, hosting events throughout the year including an annual Career Bootcamp. Approximately 8,000 living Rosemont alumni can be found in high-ranking positions in science and medicine, publishing, politics, business, education, law, and the arts.
