What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Rivier University. It is a very small school that enables you to have personal interactions with your professors and piers. The class sizes are small and you never feel like just a number or a face in the crowd. There is no football or hockey but he athletics are a huge part of campus life. There are many majors to choose from giving you a diverse group of students. Some of the majors are Homeland and Cyber Security, Nursing, Education and Business that are among the most popular. I have found a home away from home at Rivier!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Could have bigger dorm rooms and a better male-to-female ration. Nursing program is amazing here, which is why a lot of female students are here. In the heart of Nashua, sometimes there are slight fears of people recently released from jail to be lingering around campus, but overall a great private catholic university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For a small university, I believe that Rivier hands out a large bundle of opportunities for students to be involved and enjoy their time at the university. The other students are so nice and supportive and the faculty are an amazing help whenever you need them. The services Rivier offers are always available and are extremely beneficial towards your success at Rivier.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, this is a school focused on the wrong things. There is an intelligent and willing student body, but there is so little community, and with less than half of the student population living off campus, most students end up putting their head down and just coming to get their work done. There are clubs, but the only ones with any sort of organization revolve around the church. Rivier is a Catholic school, but most of their students are not religious. The only communal gathering area is out of the way, and you have to buy food if you even want to enter the dining room. There is construction the students didn't want, that didn't fix the actual issues with the school. The effort is there and the academics are good, but the school needs a better understanding of the desires of the students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rivier is a safe and fun environment. It's a small school with a close feel. Highly recommended for people nervous about going to a big school, and wanting a homey, and caring institution. Sports teams are competitive and hard work happens off the field as well. This school is a solid 7.5 out of 10.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There should be more activities available on campus so more students will become involved. I believe the public safety staff is not very friendly when asked to do something for the students, such as open a door. Many of the teaching staff members are extremely helpful and want you to succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Personally, Rivier's tuition and fees are far too high for what they offer their students. The food at the dining hall is the absolute worse, it's one of the reasons I'm commuting next school year. People are mostly nice here, depends on who you associate yourself with. I've had pretty good professors thus far. Class sizes are small so that's a plus. The campus is currently under construction to make it more "aesthetically" pleasing. The nursing department is awesome but then again I'm only in my second year so that's not much to go off of. This isn't the worst school ever but they definitely fool you when you come on tour.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is small, but it's great for small class sizes. The smaller class sizes allow professors to get to know you and actually care about your education. The food sucks and the campus isn't the most beautiful, but if you're looking for a good education, the academics are really good. Nursing is a difficult major, but each professor makes it known to you that they are there to help. There are disability services and other resources for people with conditions and even things like test anxiety. There are also peer tutors, which are also super helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When making the decision to pursue a career as a school guidance counselor, I was immediately drawn to Rivier University as their mission statement directly aligns with me both personally and professionally. The mission statement places emphasis on the student as a whole, not just on academics. As a school counselor, I will work to empower students not only academically, but personally and socially as well, as I feel they are equally important. The core of the mission states that Rivier is dedicated to “transforming hearts and minds to serve the world,” a goal I believe we should all aspire to despite our occupational paths. The mission statement holds true in the graduate program. My time thus far at Rivier has opened my eyes to various injustices in the world, and the immense and diverse needs of individuals. The University professors and courses have empowered me to continue my education and work towards addressing these injustices and meeting the needs of my future clients. It has allowed for me to continue developing socially, culturally and morally which puts me in a position to better help my future students do the same. Becoming a school counselor will place me in the largest institution where injustice is rampant; education. Rivier has taught me how to engage in dialogue about the inequalities that impact students daily, which is the first step towards creating an inclusive, multicultural environment. I can use this knowledge to advocate for changes in policies that keep some students at a disadvantage and question operations rather than complying. I believe that Rivier University has exceeded all of my expectations for what I had hoped to gain from a graduate program. I have learned an equal amount about myself and how to better make a positive impact in the lives of others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I find the school to be a very nice one! You know everyone, including professors, and you can be running late and still make it to class on time if you live on campus (which is an added bonus). The food is terrible, which is why I live off ice cream and pasta while I am in school. However, the cafe in the library is a very useful for when you dont want to eat in the main dining hall.
