School Description

Roosevelt University, established in 1945 by Edward J. Sparling, was initially chartered as Thomas Jefferson College. Roosevelt University has an interesting story behind it. In early 1945, Sparling who was then the president of the YMCA College in Chicago, resigned under protest when the board requested for information regarding the school’s student body. Sparling who was a visionary and staunch believer in equality feared that this request would result in creating a quota hence limiting the number of blacks, Jews, immigrants, and women enrolled. When Sparling resigned, nearly half of the staff left along with him and set out on a journey to establish an independent, nonsectarian, coeducational institution of higher learning. Two weeks after the establishment of the College, President Franklin Roosevelt who was a champion of human rights, died in office; hence the College was renamed in hour of his contributions.

Studying at Roosevelt University, students will live in the heart of downtown Chicago. One of the more famous cities in the US, Chicago offers many benefits to students living there. When students have some time off from their studying, they can go out and enjoy the theater, sports, world class museums, and great food. Offering something different from downtown Chicago, students studying in the Schaumburg campus will live 30 miles from downtown Chicago in a city suburb. Roosevelt University has a total of 5,352 students. RU has a diverse student body, and has been even recognized as the fourth most ethnically diverse college in the Midwest of the US.

            2003-2007, BA, Elementary Education, MBA, Marketing

            Roosevelt for a 40 year oldI had only 1 year of college from the 80s and RU helped transfer that credit and I got through my BA in ELED in 1.5 years. Then I achieved my MBA in Marketing in 1 year. The professors, staff and fellow students made the experience very enjoyable and enlightening. I then saw on the career board a volunteer opportunity at the Obama 08 HQ. I started answering phones and soon after was managing 18 State blogs, contributing to the Nat'l blog and many other items. After Obama won, I got paid speaking engagements in U.S. and Canada, and landed a job at Motorola as a blogger and then moved on to manage the Global publishing and many other activities here since 2009. Thanks RU.

          • Testimony
            2009-2011, Master's, Integrated Marketing Communications

            Master of Science - Integrated Marketing CommunicationsI agree with Brent Levi's recommendation below. The IMC program at Roosevelt is definitely underrated. The instructors are seasoned veterans in the industry who still consult marketing services, or they still work in the industry and provide their real-life examples in the classroom. Mickey Brazeal, Dr. Schiller, Dorothy DeCarlo, Cindy Davis, Barbara Weaver, Mr. Azzaro...all great at what they do. Not only as teachers, but also as mentors and inspiration. I wouldn't be where I am today if I didn't have my MSIMC. Not to mention, you get the opportunity to TRAVEL ABROAD even in a Masters program. I was lucky enough to go to France with my class for 10 days to learn about international marketing from worldwide agencies and French brands. For me, it was the perfect program because I was working full-time in Wisconsin and they offered Saturday classes. I drove every Saturday morning to Schaumburg or Chicago and knocked my classes out one hectic day/week

          • Testimony
            1993-1995, BA

            I transferred to Roosevelt in my Junior year from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale because I decided an urban setting was more in tune with my changing goals. I attended both the Downtown campus as well as the Schaumburg campus with an easy commute living in between. I truly believe that every staff member of each campus took a genuine interest in my success as a student and were very careful in not letting me slip 'through the cracks' which is so common in other large institutions. I credit much of my researching and writing skills to my Roosevelt professors. This is a great city University but can be quite a cultural shock to students with no urban experience.
