Very boring.Quite BrightUndecided
Very boring. Academics are not challenging. There is never ANYTHING to do. Its a waste of money to go. They do give out good $. But at the school there just seems like something is missing. Most people I have talked to are transferring or really want to but too lazy too. Its a beautiful campus and great food, but other than that, it has nothing else going for it.

Roger Williams is a money scam for manyQuite BrightArchitecture
Roger Williams is a money scam for many of its employees, specifically that idiot president of ours. He doesn't even live in the 14 million$ castle we built him in student loans because he got caught banging his secretary. There is absolutely no consideration, care, or even respect for the students here - sure there are a few random good professors - but as a whole, the roger williams employees are here for your money. and they sure as hell will get it. But if you do happen to have a lot of money, want to get high and do nothing rwu is the place for you. If you have money you can float right through on daddy's donations, but if you want to work and get by on that - well that just isn't good enough. oh, and they dont care if you know this, as long as you keep paying that bill. or stop after 3 years: either way send money, they'll be happy to take it. tenured professors can ignore you and assign seemingly random grades, enjoy their yacht's and vacations on your stupidity. and no way you can transfer up, or even down. they keep your grades down in the architecture program to ensure you cant do better, you cant go elsewhere for grad school. im honestly freaking out about this exact fact, im stuck with these idiots and expect to get nothing back. I'd do anything to go to gradschool elsewhere, my only chance is my portfolio. I've taught myself everything I've learned out of spite and the interest of self preservation. Still, every day I wake up hoping to die. RWU ruins lives, and builds nothing. You've been warned.

The University looks beautiful and academically challengingQuite BrightChemistry
The University looks beautiful and academically challenging for the usual outsider; however, when you become a student everything changes. The campus is not safe at night, it is known by local hospitals that many students are sexually assaulted all of the time. The public safety staff does not do anything of use. Students get away with whatever they want. They will make you do things you ordinarily do not have to or want to do because they are a private university. The consequence for every misconduct is a fine, the students a rich and don't really care. The campus does a very good job covering up any negative press. If you enjoy freedom don't enroll at RWU.
