All-in-all I was happy with my experiences atNot so brightPsychology
All-in-all I was happy with my experiences at RWU. I'm happy I chose this school, I learned a lot, but it did not give you the autonomy of a large school. I had the opportunity to study at a large university for a semester and enjoyed the culture of it much more. If you are some one who likes a tight, closer, socially-knit campus RWU is perfect. However, if you think you want the traditional American college experience ie> football on Saturday, Frats/Sororities, strong school identity (Picture PSU students or Michigan grads) you may want to look elsewhere.

First off: College is what you make ofQuite BrightBiology
First off: College is what you make of it!!! So this is an opinion its not objective at all.
If your rich and you want to get a college degree with no passion and you just like fitting in instead of being interestingly individual this is the place, you can act like your in highschool and get through with a sub-par education UNLESS you are in Architecture! Architecture program is engaging and difficult.

Location: Roger williams University is in Bristol RI and believe me its beautiful! but there is NOTHING TO DO without a car. and the RIPTA bus is very bad, I'm from metro Boston so I ride the T all the time this bus is horrible the RIPTA smells, and the people are terrifying. Getting off campus is difficult and annoying without a car.

Professors/Academics: The professors are AVERAGE Architecture is excellent, that is probably their best but anything else is sub-par, the professors are not challenging and some are too nice and difficult to work with. The Math department is really really BAD and the science is catered around Marine Science so if your into Marine Science your fine but premed, biomedical stuff its awful. English and humanities are taught by totally inconsistent teachers but nothing different than most colleges. Besides the Math department its not a bad school, just really fake and not passionate about academics.

Social life: This is where Roger williams suffers, the kids are cliquy, cliche, predictable and unintelligent mostly. The smart ones are really easy to pick out because everyone else is lacking in intelligence. The girls are EXTREMELY GOOD LOOKING... man but they are cliche and only date the classic douche with a chinstrap beard and a backwards fitted hat. so unspontaneous no one here wants to take a chance. Like if one of them was reading this they'd probably be like "dude ill fight you" thats how childish they are. If you find the right people your fine but other than that good luck.BTW: The campus looks amazing!! and the food is great!! so if you can afford it and thats the most important thing to you then come here, but if you have a chance to go somewhere better GO!

PROS:Quite BrightArchitecture
PROS: The academics at Roger Williams University is for the most part well worth the price. The Professors for the most part are eager assist and come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences.CONS: Many of the dormitory facilities lack proper maintenance. The facility maintenance staff uses the band aid fix and never properly fixes leaky pipes, chipping or pealing paint, leaky windows, toilets that leak into the living area below, many of the dorm facilities have severe mold issues. This is all in one of their newer dormitory facilities. The Facilities Manager, Vice President and President are all aware however choose to ignore the complaints from both students and parents. Student Health is not a high priority at Roger Williams University!
