I just did aNot so brightAccounting
I just did a google search of "roger williams kkk" and there must be a thousand different websites that discuss this terrible school. It is not only at the undergrad college but the law school too. Previous raters were right. RWU just wants money from anyone who will give it to them.

Question
RWU is a degree mill and nothing more,Not so brightAccounting
RWU is a degree mill and nothing more, students are simply started, and then finished. Students who should fail classes, are passed, and then fail worse as they have not obtained the knowledge required to move on. The instructors seem to care, but the people in charge do not, they just seem to want more and more graduates.

The student services at the school are atrocious, financial services are one of the worst, employing staff that has no previous experience in the financial field. I had to fill out loan paperwork repeatedly simply because the staff member had lost it (at least they admitted it). Student housing is expensive and cramped, and odds are you are going to be with someone who is on drugs, or has another substance abuse problem.

Avoid this school!

Question
I've been to and visited many nice collegeQuite Bright
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.
