Rhode Island College Reviews
Review Rhode Island College
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!
I really do love Rhode Island College for the classes sizes! The school is not to big which gives professors the opportunity to have one on one time with each of their students when needed. You can tell that the professors really want their students to do their best and succeed. Teachers are pretty much always available before or after class if you have any classes, or if not there are always willing to make an appointment with you. Extra tutoring in most of the classes is always available at no extra charge which is great.
I lived in Sweet Hall, which is an all freshman dorm my first year and I loved it! I personally chose this residence hall because it was smaller and all freshman. I can honestly say that if I lived in one of the other dorms that include freshman, I do not think I would have met the people I am closest with today. I met some of my closest friends living in Sweet Hall, and these are the people that make going to school so far away from home more enjoyable. I personally like living on campus because you meet new people and I believe it is part of the college experience. I am looking forward to living on campus again this next year. I had a really close relationship with one of my Resident Assistance and I am lucky enough to have her again next year in my suite. I only had one problem with living on campus and that was when we signed up for housing for next semester. We had lottery numbers and everything was running smoothly until the time slot I had was right in the middle of when my roommates and I were in class. The internet was down in every building except the residence halls, so this made signing up for housing more of a hassle because you couldn't do it unless you were in a residence hall. Therefore, I think it would be better if they made the time slots either in the evening when most people are not in classes, or they should have it set up so you can register from any building on campus.
