Good college but some issues communication outside of office hours is an issue with some teachers not all but a select few, other teachers have grown past their teaching window and havent realized it yet they don't do any online work but like to do everything in class
My Opinion about Rhode Island so far is that it is great school even though i been in the college for one year. Every professor i met is nice, some might be rude but it okay for me. I don't hate the college cause it has what i need and it has the best nursing place there. It a nice environment for everyone who decide to come to Rhode island college.
When I started attending Rhode Island College I was very nervous as many first time students would be, however, their advisors and student leaders made everything so welcoming and gave me one of the best experiences I’ve ever had when it came to advising and counseling. Being able to ensure that I have been on the right path since day one has always been a big priority for me and I was very glad to see that because it was a huge deal for me, it was equally as big for them. They are very understanding and very polite and I have felt very welcome on campus as well as in various student-led groups.
This was and still is my dream school. I am so happy and proud that I get to be a part of this community. The people, the opportunities, the resources and the feeling of being welcomed is overwhelmingly comforting. Inclusivity, hospitality and prosper is what makes Rhode Island College, and I will forever be proud to be an Anchor!

If I could go back in time and talk to me as a high school senior I would say the following: Danielle I know that you have messed up and gotten pregnant, but dont drop out of school, you only have 3 months left. If you work hard and not worry about what others are saying around you, you can do this. Finish high school and go to college, Momma said that she would help you take care of the baby until you finish. Dont be so stubron and hard headed take advantage of the oppertunity go to law school like you have dreamed about for all these years because its hard out here. If you wait until you get older you will have to worry about bills and other responsibilities on top of keeping up your grades. Its not as easy as you think it is to just go back. The longer you wait the harder it gets. So be smart. I will be here to help you if you need it. Dont give up, Please dont give up.
I consider that there are many things that make my school great. This school is full of education opportunities. It made me become professional and independent everyone around me was always eager to learn, listen, and help each other.
What I consider to be the worst part of my school is the sports. Rhode Island College does not have a football team, a cheerleading team. People tend to take pride in their school when their football team does well. and it is hard to be proud of a school that is division three school.
Rhode Island College class rooms have a very wide range of ethnicities and ages. This certainly has the potential to make RIC a great learning place for students. I love the way each person tha comes to class has a completely different outlook on life than the person sitting next to them because it adds a lot to class discussions.
Someone who is career driven. Someone who is determined and wants a bright future.
It could be a lot better.
Caring and very helpful. Want to help each other understand material better. Easily able to attain study groups with new classmates however, strong continuity of classmates. Once you are accepted you generally stay together and get to know each other. This makes the difficulty of the nursing program a much easier to obtain goal with the support of people who care
To attend Rhode Island College, you should be willing to put in a LOT of time and energy for your work. If you want to live on campus, be prepared to dish out money for disgusting food, broken elevators, but nice a/c and heat. You should be mature enough to get over people's pettiness, and willing to live with at least 7 other people. However, upper classmen can live with only 4 people (sometimes). You should be independent and not break the rules (or not get caught). Good luck!! :-)
I wish that professors had held students to higher academic standards. I learned the most from professors who pushed students to work hard.
What I brag the most about Rhode Island College is that I attend the best Biology (Pre-Med) program in the state. They have the latest technology and the right study to prepare any student for the MCAT examination, and any Medical School in the country. Rhode Island College is an institutuon that seriously care about their students and their right future career.
It is known for its awesome education and nursing programs. Anyone in the New Englad area knows where they shoulgo to college if they want to be and education or nursing major because of the great program and the low tuition rates.
Rhode Island College is known as a commuter school, and primarily it is. That doesn't mean this is a bad thing, though. After transferring from a small private college with lots of cliques, I personally like the independence of the students. To me, this makes it feel more like college rather than high school.
If I could change one thing about RIC, I would add a better social scene. I mean, since it's in Providence it's great because it's near all the clubs and bars, but there is absolutely NO life on campus on the weekends. This is primarily because it is a commuter school, so everyone either rents apartments in the city, or lives at home.
Also, there is absolutely NO school pride, I mean, the school doesn't even have a football team!
The academic life at RIC is very good.
The class sizes are mostly all 25-30 students, so professors know you by name and there is personal attention gven to each student.
The general education requirements also are not that strict, there is a lot of choice among different courses when it comes to that.
Student government and school newspaper.
The food at our college is what the students complain the most about. It saddens me that whenever we are going to our diner, we do not have many options to chose from and we are paying for horrible food.
I have never lived on campus, but from what I have seen they are about average size for dorms.
Pretty much. Since it's a small school that's very cheap to in-state students, the vast majority of people are from RI.
