| 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.

| I was a marketing major with a work study job on campus in the marketing communications department and I had an off campus job. I still managed to be on the executive board of a org I joined my freshman year and hang out with my friends when I wanted.|
Coming from the south to RI, with no knowledge of what to expect I wouldn't change a thing.
People mentioned the lack of diversity but it didn't bother me. My focus was my education and the small classes, faculty attention and the administration helped me every bit of the way.

| I always had trouble registering for housing or getting the class at the time I wanted. That is to be expected at ANY university. Other than that everything could not have been more amazing. I would not trade my four years at RWU for anything in the world. |
