when I first started looking for schools I had no idea what I was getting into. RWU is not as it seems to advertise, which is a given at any school. It's housing is ridicuslously expensive but most of the dorms are shit. Students are mainly very shallow, stupid, and actually really lame to put it in better words. There are certain social niches and people you might find relatable or different and smart, but they are few and even those choices are limited. i looked up the studentsreviews before I came and was discouraged by the negative comments saying the social life sucks, people suck, and basically all the typical attributes at RWU, but I wanted to go and like it so badly that I put on a positive attitude and figured it really is what you make it and the comments were biased. and it is, but there really isn't much to make out of it and i learned that those negative comments were actually quite right, even for people like me who can have a good time anywhere. my first year i was friendly, open to everything and everyone, and made a good time for myself, and made good friends. however, after that it started getting stale on campus and even off around the surrounding area. branching out at this campus is extremely difficult if you are of a unique personality which i think many people are but they are rare here for some reason. this school is perfect and suitable for those in the surrounding new england area since everyone is from around there mostly or new york and everyone either knows each other or are similar so they have lasting experiences. i have been to all aspects of the social life, from partying and going out at nights, smoking to numb the boredom, and just about everything, and yes did let myself have a good time, but it gets old very fast and even going to the city or clubs and bars is tasteless and not as fun as other colleges are. in a way the experience i concluded with here is just…lame. even the few people i became friends with became stale company and attempting to breaking away and finding better more like-minded people is difficult because people here are needy and unimaginative and cannot think outside of themselves and their cliques and are afraid of meeting new people. aside from social environment, the education is lacking unless you are in law, architecture, communications, and marine bio. teachers are critical yet their assignments are jokes and the advisors are useless in making sound life or academic decisions. they will fuck up your transcript. transferring is not the best option, it is actually a huge risk which might ruin your future and it is best for you to suck it up all 4 years but if you know of better then go for it. i know many people who are the typical students here and are happy. the girls are spoiled, judgemental, poseurs, and dress up to go to a shoddy small get together to have nattys spillt on their going-out forever21 dresses by drunk beefy and extremely predictable dumb bros, take milllions of facebook pictures, and probably hook up with said bros and those bros will probably talk about their latest lays at the gym as they often do, focus on sounding overtly masculine, try to talk like the rappers they idolize, and everyone will eventually graduate and the girls will graduate with and marry the bros that felt them up over a handle of burnettes and they will have children, live in their partents' homes, and teach kindergarten and become alcoholics. if this traditional northeast life sounds familiar and true to you, then come here. there is a feeling of lacking at this school, that makes it unlike a true college experience. everything is just less than mediocore and the only people having blasts are the sheltered graduated high school students from surrounding areas.
questionHey, im a senior in high school and applied to rwu. i would like to hear your response about the social life if their are a lot of partys around campus or near it. also if its easy to get caught drinking or smoking on campus.
responseHey! It is easy to get caught doing anything like drinking and smoking because it's a small campus and Public safety is on your ass. also, RA's are ridiculously around the clock, which is the first ive seen at a college, where they literally check on the hour. If you're from mass, CT, NH, NJ, NY, or RI aka any new england town, you'll fit in and probably appreciate the parties here. the parties aren't that big, they are mostly just kick backs where a couple people squeeze into apartments or the houses in town and the best thing i guess is that everyone usually likes to get as trashed as possible. if you don't mind small get togethers or big parties that usually don't last too long,you'll like it. and as for smoking on campus, it's easy to get caught but it's not that big of a deal and hasn't really stopped anyone. the risks of getting caught shouldnt stop you if you are interested in the small parties i've mentioned
responseYes, I'm from RI. I actually got accepted into all three colleges I applied to which are RIC, RWU, and Salve Regina. What is your opinion on what you have heard about Salve compared to RWU (parties, environment, etc). Also, what is there to do outside of campus in Bristol? It seems like a very quiet/dull town.
responseHey! Sorry to get back to you so late, you are probably at a school by now and Ihope you are enjoying wherever you chose! Best of luck. I know it's too late but I'll respond to your last question anyway. I have heard from Salve students that they like their college just fine and it is not uncommon for them to mix with RWU students once in a while for get togethers. However, I have heard them compare the campuses and say taht RWU has a nicer and cleaner/newer campus but that's probably because Salve is an older school with more of a background. As for RIC I think it is pretty decent but overall pretty average, which is not a bad thing,as it has everything jsut in average terms, like parties, sports and normal college experience. Bristol, the town itself is cute and small and very quiet, it is not much of a college town, despite RWu being right there it isn't very school spirited or supportive of its nearby studnet population, except there is one hookah cafe owned by an RWU alumni that some students like to go to, but I don't think it is that great of a hookah place at all. the people in the towns are reserved and kinda blank and the place everyone goes to from RWU is the square by Almeida ( offcampus apartments) that has the CVS, liquor store, and Cumbies). Most students like to get away to Providence or URI for the weekend. You're right, Bristol is pretty boring. There are some college bars like Gil's and Aidans which are small and pretty shabby but they can be fun with the right people, just can get crowded, loud, dirty, and hectic. Out of all those 3 schools though, RWU will have the best food options.
