| Salve is a great looking school. With a horrendous retention rate heres why, all the professors here are very condescending to their students, not very open to new ideas and they stick to their guns when it comes to certain topics. I felt uncomfortable in the classrooms to voice my opinion. Students here are all from MA and CT all coming from a private school. I must have seen like 3 black kids when i came here and thats no joke. If you are willing to play a D3 sport then great this is the school for you, the social life here at salve is dependent on whether or not you play one of the mediocre sports at salve. Literally all of their teams suck, there is absolutely no school spirit. not many "fans" show up for the big game night. The visiting teams usually have more fans than we do. The resident halls arent bad though, hunt/reefe & New res are the best dorms for freshmen. The honors program dorm kids are excluded from the campus making social life for them non existant. Newport is dead at 9pm and is only fun if your 21. newport cops are alwasy looking for a party to bust and to get kids in trouble, some of the RA's are cool and will party with you which is good. providence is fun if you are willing to wait for the trolly and the bus ride along with the dipsh*ts from roger williams. All of my friends here are transfering to a different school and many kids in my grade are leaving. Overall this school is a clown school with easy academics so if you're a C- student this is your school. Food is teriible with miley being the only option for freshmen. you'll be sick of it soon enough, good thing theres alot of options. If you are planning on going to salve for next fall good luck. |

| Firstly, you cannot beat the gorgeous location of Salve. You are living right on the water's edge among mansions and gorgeous scenery that it is impossible not to appreciate. When you first come to Salve you can immediately feel the great sense of community and camaraderie. You become familiar with all the faces on campus and always see people you know when you're walking around. This is a great thing because you immediately feel like you're a part of something big. |
I have met some wonderful people here and made genuine, life long friends that mean the world to me. I believe that speaks to the caliber of students here on campus. In addition to great friends and classmates, I have encountered numerous fabulous professors that have challenged and interested me. All of my business professors are wonderful and I haven't disliked one of them. The professors go out of their way to help you and make you feel like you aren't just a number. You can tell that they genuinely care about the students.
They also go all out for the freshmen to make them feel excited, welcomed, and that they made the right choice n choosing Salve. Overall, Salve is a great school and I am very glad that I chose to go here. I have had a wonderful experience and wouldn't trade it for anything.

| I am currently a sophomore at Salve Regina University from the state of Maine. I am a Biology major with a Chemistry minor. I am on the Cross Country team and in the Salve Regina Environmental Club. My experiences at Salve over the past one and a half years have been positive. |
The Biology Department at Salve Regina is challenging and progressive. As a sophomore, one of the classes I am taking is called Biotechniques. In this class, students work independently utilizing two different strains of a parasitic protozoan disease. Comparing gene relatedness is analyzed between the two strains of the disease by using amplified fragment length polymorphism and polymerase chain reaction. I find this class to be very helpful and informative because of its hands-on laboratory work.
Cross Country at Salve has opened up experiences and memories that I will have with me for a lifetime. The athletes on the team are some of my best friends. I love division III because it's competitive, however, relaxed at the same time. For example, one week we will compete in a regional meet with up to 50 teams. The next week we will have a meet with 5-10 schools. Furthermore, I have been having a great time at Salve Regina. The problems individuals' seem to have with Salve are its academics and social life. The social life at Salve is what you make of it - just like any other school. There are beaches, many restaurants & bars, and student activities on Friday nights. If you want to go out and party just go to an upperclassman's house or take the RIPTA to Providence. There are so many things to do. The people that complain about campus life are the individuals who don't know how to entertain themselves occasionally. My major keeps me busy enough as is. I'm not sure why it's so hard to comprehend that going to school in a historical district is not going to be a huge party school.
