I did an internship in Washington, DC myCommunications
I did an internship in Washington, DC my junior year that was a great experience. The students I was with were so motivated. When I came back to campus I thought about transferring because I was in class with kids who only cared about whether something was going to be on the next test. But I didn't and I'm glad.

Since graduating, I realized that I got a great education at RWU because I put in the effort. Roger Williams has all the resources anyone needs to get a quality education you just have to do a little work. The professors are very knowledgeable and everything you need to know is in the text books. You just have to attend class, read the texts and do the assignments. You can’t expect to skip class, party all the time and still get As.

All of the other opportunities the university offers are great. My semester internship in DC and semester abroad in Italy were the best learning experiences I could have asked for.

While right after I graduated most people had no idea where Roger Williams University even was, it is definitely growing in reputation and more and more people recognize the name.

While a senior at RWU, I became aQuite BrightCriminal
While a senior at RWU, I became a police officer, which is specifically why I wanted to go there, and have been now for the past 3 years. In fact, most of my friends at RWU who have graduated with CJ majors are now police officers or in academies. It has an excellent reputation as a strong CJ School...drawbacks: While it is in a beautiful NE Town on the water, it is a pain to get to a nearby city (Providence and Newport are equally as far away), especially if you don't have a car. I like being in the city socially, and work in one now. When I was there, the school was a bit too small for me. I didn't have a ton of friends, but I met some great people. They are growing now, and I haven't decided if that's good or bad.

RWU's rankings have improved to one of the top in N.E., and most of the people I work with or have come into contact with have somehow been to RWU. I make excellent pay and I think RWU will help me in the long run for promotions, etc.I was never a drug user, or a huge club goer, but I recognized the clique-ness of the jocks and the "popular people," usually because freshman year, there is little to do except drugs. I stayed away from it, and it wasn't too difficult. Had RWU been next to, say, Boston, I could have escaped and explored if I wanted to. Besides this, for the educational and professional value, I would return.
