I've spent two years at this school asAverageBiology
I've spent two years at this school as a marine biology major and I'm deciding to transfer. This school only cares about what prospective students see, putting our tuition into maintaining perfect landscaping at all times instead of fixing the awful, unstable wifi. There's no excuse for sub-par internet at a private university. The class of 2018 is too big for housing so there were singles turned into doubles and doubles turned into triples, and the dorms are NOT spacious. Not nearly enough sections of required classess are offered, often leaving a long waitlist for select courses. Oh also, public safety and RA's are a cult that will bring you down at any chance they can. The thirst to party is so real for some people that freshmen will persist to get in to parties ruin apartments. And our rate of sexual assault is through the roof.

This is a beautiful school on Mt hopeAverageBiology
This is a beautiful school on Mt hope bay and they will sell you and your families to ensure your money. but what they won't tell you is that it's all a scam. I lived in a cold dark and moldy room my freshman year. nothing was ever done about this btoken and disgusting dorm building. I was treated like a child by most adults I met like I didn't matter. on top of that the average kid at this school is rich, white and dumb. also this year I got another room with mold in the heater and I have to take a shuttle to class which never seems to be on time. lastly public "safety" will he watching your every move and will search your room without a second though. they don't care about your privacy or education. they want the parents money and the glory of having a "pretty school".

Roger Williams has a culture that embraces genuine learning for those who work for it. Sure, there will be classes you don't care for and you do need to put in the effort. Overall, though, there is tremendous opportunity for intellectual and personal growth. If you are willing to step up to the plate, RWU faculty and staff will be there to coach you and help you build the knowledge and skills that become a foundation for a lifetime of achievement.
