Rhode Island College Reviews
I love Rhode Island College. Beautiful campus and always ready to help staff made me feel that this was a place where I could learn, improve myself, and earn a better education than in my home country, Poland. I took eight incredible classes, and I liked all of them, with no exception! Moreover, all of my professors gave me support during my first year and made sure that I was on the right track, which was very important to me, as an international student. I wish there were more scholarships for students like me, who are struggling with out-of-state tuition.
Rhode Island College is great! It's not perfect, but no college is. However, being a freshman, my transition from high school to college has been great. Most professors are super helpful and really like to challenge you. Campus safety is a goal that Rhode Island College strives to make their students feel. There is always RIC security driving through campus and many emergency push buttons all over. Which makes you feel very safe. The campus is small and beautiful and gives a home feeling like no other college I looked into. I am a commuter so I can not say what it is like living on campus. However the one downfall the college has is not enough parking spaces...Like ever. The school is mostly a commuter school which is cool, but parking can be horrendous depending on the time you have classes. Even with that one downfall RIC is an amazing school and I absolutely recommend looking into it!
Rhode Island College was an easy transition for me as a single working parent. I applied in 2015, and was called in to interview with staff because I am an "adult learner," and I have not been to school in quite some time. I believe this interview was to observe me, and see what my future goals were, but more importantly, why the school should accept me as part of their student population. Not to say that I wasn't worth it, but to see how serious I was about attending after being away from school for so long. I understand as a learning institution, that fostering a students academia and talents are taken seriously, and they wanted to see if I was ready as well. Furthermore, I was accepted, and I now have 72 credits, and I am looking forward to enrolling in graduate school in the near future. RIC has definitely opened some doors for me that I never knew were possible. The teachers are great, and the night classes offered work perfect for parents who work during the day.
