let me just start off by saying that I didn't
NOT have a good time at RWU. In fact, it
was a pretty fun four years but let me just
say that this school did not help me at all
to get where I am right now.
Their career center
is useless, sorry to say. I had to find my
own internship to graduate and had to argue with my
(also useless) internship adviser in order for my internship to
be approved. Patricia Finn I believe was her name. Not
sure who she sucked up to but the woman needs
to be re-trained because she was not helpful whatsoever. If
anything she made the experience so much worse. Honestly, the
lady needs to be fired.
The classes, professors, and students
are actually bearable. My freshman year was a little
rough and I got off on a bad start but
it turned around and now that I look back on
it, it really wasn't that bad. The main point of
this review is to state that if you want to
graduate and gain a job after you graduate, you better
do it independently. I received no help in gaining my
career. Even my work study job, that I worked at
for four years and they hire an intern every summer,
would not hire me. They even refused to give my
current employer a reference and I had to seek elsewhere.
So overall, RWU needs to be a bit more attentive
to their students when it comes to after graduation. I
found a job after being graduated for two months. (No
thanks to RWU). Also, I have not even HEARD from
them in these past two months. Unless it is for
an alumni donation, or course! No follow-up from any of
my advisers or professors since they obviously can't be bothered.
I hate how this review seems so negative, which even
though it is, I don't want to scare people off
from this school because it isn't bad but they just
need to prepare and assist their students (who pay A
LOT of money to attend RWU). They seem to be
more interested in paying their shuttle drivers overtime for leaving
5 minutes early or showing up 10 minutes late, than
they do about student agenda. Which is sad.
