I wouldn’t have chosen any other school to attend. But, I would recommend a college advisor because some of the financial staff is a bit aggressive when approaching students. The campus is incredibly safe and as a woman, I feel that’s very important. There are also a lot of opportunities for POC and LGBTQ+ folks.
I love it here! It is not a big campus but it allows for easy access to classes and dorms, while not being too crowded all of the time. There are huge athletic facilities that are almost always open and clean. I definitely see myself coming here next year to study Forensic Science and Criminal Justice.
Used to be ok and now everything has gone to shit. Don’t waste your money here unless you’d like to be extremely disappointed in everything. Food used to be good, now it’s absolute garbage. Not shit to do on weekends, dorms are full of black mold, and just about everyone who runs this college only cares about money.
Even though Roger Williams is a smaller school, we still have a lot to offer. The first thing I wanna talk about is the location, being on its own peninsula gives its students amazing views of the water as well as sunrises and sunsets. The campus has that authentic campus feel and the vibe is very friendly. My first week I can’t even tell you how many upperclassmen welcomed me and my friends. It is a real priority to make everyone feel included. The classes are on the smaller side so you can have a more personal learning experience with the professor. They always keep regular office hours that are open to not just questions about the homework, but just to talk to someone if you wanted to. Roger Williams is ranked top 5% in the country when it comes to food, and anyone on campus can agree to that. We have numerous meals to choose from, many more than I’ve seen at other campus’s, and the cafeteria workers are all super nice to the students. Overall Roger Williams is an ideal place for anyone looking for that authentic college experience with good education, great location and amazing vibes from everyone on campus.

You need to look at all different schools in all different places. You need to look at colleges in warm places and cold places and you need to look at schools near and far from your home. You also need to look at schools of different sizes small and large.
All of my classmates are welcoming and very nice; everyone is excited to be here, to get to know new people, and to start a new chapter in their lives.
My school is best know for how beautiful it is, it is located right on the mount hope bay. It is known for the students having a lot of work and always in the library. It is also known for going to the bars in providence. The food is amazing.
Roger Williams University is a great environment for everyone that attends. There are groups of friends but all the groups intertwine. Classes are challenging but engage everyone to make sure the class is comfortable with material. Other schools I considered did not seem to have such great qualities.
It's a nice campus with seemingly a lot of resources that unfortunately don't necessarily lead to challenging classes or interesting opportunities for intellectual growth.
My group of friends, and how there are 20 of us and we are all so close and miss eachother so much and school when we are home. I also brag about the food which is amazing.
I would say that the most frustrating thing on school is that the wireless around campus and in the dorms can be kind of slow. But the student body voiced this to the Technology Dept, and now changes are being made to the wireless systems to make them faster and able to support the larger student body that Roger Williams has. The school continues to grow and update itself as its students do, and they listen. Its reassuring to know that they are willing to fix a probem that the students have brought up.
What was expected of me
a person who only wants to have fun and party in college. This campus is very fun but everyone is pretty serious and on top of their studies as well.
individuals who are openminded and desiring to become part of a diverse and open community.

They used to be. But now it's harder than ever to get in here and they are accepting more minorities and more minorities decide to come here. As far as the "rich" goes, its true for a lot of people, but it's not a sweeping generalization. I'm not rich, and some of my friends aren't rich. But it is common to see BMWs, Hummers, and Audis driving around.
Class is easy and we don't have very good internships. Some teachers are very helpful but others seem uninterested in your concerns.
That we are "Rich, White, Upperclass", with no diversity on campus.
It's a good school but it's very concerned with image and academically it is not very challenging.
They remind me of my highschool classes
