    What are the nearest hotels to campus??? AND Where can first year studens find the best housing??

  4. Michelle says:

    Do you know if there is a swim team in the area for youth? Or swim coaches in the area for hire? Is the pool at Ross open for use for spouses and children of students or faculty?

    • Hi Michelle. I am not aware of any swim teams/coaches in the area. You may want to contact the Dominica Water Sports Association at http://www.dominicawatersports.com/ to see if they have any leads for you. Yes, the pool is open for spouses, faculty, children etc. I know that during the summer the day school takes the children to the pool for free play, but I don’t think there is any structured swim activities. Sounds like it may be a great area to explore!

    Can spouses work out at the gym too?

  6. Mones Saintil says:

    Do you know if there are any students from the Bahamas at Ross?

  7. Ross incoming says:

    Do you think incoming students need to bring a printer?

    • It is not necessary. The university has printers in the classrooms. You will get a print allowance per week that should cover your needs. Saves you the headache of paying customs fees on printer and having to find paper/ink to purchase to keep it running.
