"Roberts has been a great experience and a place that has made my life better. Everyone at Roberts including professors, coaches, and even students all want what is best for you and want you to succeed in everything that you put effort into. They will help you in any way that they can without hesitation to make sure you achieve your goal of graduating. Roberts is always a positive and uplifting environment when it comes to sporting events, concerts, chapel, and other on-campus activities. With me playing a sport, it is awesome that they are always upgrading the facilities especially with the new turf field and weight room."
