Testimonials from some of our alumni
"Devoted faculty: one-on-one level commitment to making me a
successful student. They are never too busy and always willing to
help. No appointment necessary. Outstanding quality education: I've
yet to take a graduate level CS class where I haven't had an edge
on other students because of my undergraduate background. Personal
feel: You get a sense of camaraderie, not competition from your
- Andrew Nuxoll, 1995
"The resultant education, both in class and out of it, not only
kept me interested, but also prepared me mentally and emotionally
for what was to come in the "real world." The department's
concentration on building a software engineer is an approach that I
have benefited from tremendously and one that my peers from other
schools have envied."
- Brice Ruth, 1999
"Best education, hands down. My four years at Rose were not only
the best growth experience of my life, but also the most valuable
item on my resume. There is an incredible close-knit learning
community among students and professors at the school and
elsewhere, when I mention that I studied at Rose, people frequently
warm up and extend a sort of familial connection."
- Sid Stamm, 2003
"There are many things I can say about the wonderful faculty and
academics in the CSSE department, but what's most important to know
is that you leave feeling like you were a part of a family. All of
the faculty take a genuine interest in the students, regarding not
only each student's education but also their lives in general.
Because of this interest, the students have a unique opportunity
for input into the curriculum and direction of the department that
you won't find anywhere else."
- Tori Bowman, 2004
"While my work for MIT Lincoln Laboratory is very interesting
and enjoyable, nothing yet compares to the delightfully challenging
coursework that I experienced at Rose-Hulman. I thoroughly enjoyed
tackling tough problems with my very talented classmates. Some
great friendships were forged through the many hours spent working
on various group projects. I am very lucky to have gone to a school
where the faculty really try to challenge their students."
- Ryan Poplin, 2004
