DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL

Feb 05 2013Communications
DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL. I'm in my sophomore year and this school is a complete joke. Academics require no work. I had a 3.3 GPA in high school and I have a 4.0 here.

The social life is also completely lacking, Sure, there are random dorm room parties of like 6 people now and then. There are no significant gatherings for social life and RAs take every chance they get to stop you from making noise. Nothing exciting happens on campus. There is a group called CEN that puts on campus events. Most of these events are on friday nights at 8 and are usually some crappy youtube star or a magician (what are we 12?). Just shows you what your tuition goes to.I'm currently transferring schools because this university is a joke. A waste of money (did I mention it is expensive?). Save yourself some time and trouble and completely skip this school in your school searching.

Beautiful campus with beautiful people

Beautiful campus with beautiful people. Not much else to it. Not the brightest group of students.School work is easy, not too challenging and classmates aren't very motivated. Lots of close minded people with NO diversity. Word of advice- if you're looking for a true "college experience" RWU is not the place for you, you won't find that theres much room for growth or opportunity.

I've been to and visited many nice college

Jan 22 2013Unknown
I've been to and visited many nice college campuses around the country, but this one did not compare to any unique college environment, it is very lacking, small and bland distasteful campus, just well kept because that is where a lot of students' money goes for. They try to pass off as a real 4 year university, but it is actually a bit worse than junior colleges, of which it was, before they got a hold of more money. Teachers can be decent, though some are rather ignorant, and less diverse in thinking, but they are a bit easy but also highly not taken advantage of, they have great credentials but it is wasted on disinterested and rather slow, narrow-minded, and for lack of a better word, dumb students. The students, no matter where you look are all lacking as people, even the ones self-proclaimed as intellects or 'interesting' are rather 2 dimensional and poorly-educated or informed. It seems that their social statuses fuel on pompousness and a safe boring-ness. This school will bore those to death who are looking for traditional university experiences. RWU accepts nearly everyone, in an effort to expand the school, get more money, and try to become more popular. But nearly more than half of each class transfers out, after experiencing what the school really is. The conduct offices are very corrupt and disregards student privacy and appropriate measures. A degree here is wasted, no one knows what the F RWU is, and unless you want a local job in the state of RI with the lowest employment rate, or basically anywhere in the boring new england area, then RWU is perfect for you.
