    RMU changed my life. The size of the university is a perfect balance of getting to work closely with faculty and staff while also growing and meeting new people. I'm proud of my accomplishments thanks to the unwavering support of the RMU community, especially the Women's Leadership and Mentorship Program, the Career Center, the Office of Engaged Learning, and the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management. Thank you, RMU!

    It’s becoming to be a money trap. Students, please look deeply into the cost of your education! You have to stay on the lookout if you want to attend school for the price they claim during your freshman year. There have recently been many issues regarding the overall schools financial integrity as well (enrollment crisis, lack of proper housing, the creation of TWO sport buildings INSTEAD of bettering housing :/ you get the picture) Not a lot of my friends are happy attending the school anymore simply because of the upper administration’s recent decisions about school spending. It’s a shame because like most of the reviews, I really thought RMU was my dream school and I have unfortunately established myself so well in the school that now the thought of leaving in order to afford my education is very disheartening. Just be weary of your decisions to come to RMU and PLEASE READ ABOUT THEM IN THE NEWS
    Fantastic faculty but the administration has taken a hit over the past five years. The administration has continued to fund low-grade academic programs and athletic/recreation programs. The lackluster academic programs have resulted in a lower-caliber students to partially offset the loss of tuition revenue. One positive aspect of this is it is easy for a "good student" to stand out.

    Technology both inside and outside the classroom is stuck in 2012. There are constant reorganizations and reductions of support staff. The university president thinks he is a national celebrity. The curriculums in many programs are out of date.

    Faculty are great and most care about students; however, there is an obvious tension between Faculty and the administration. Overall, facilities are well kept and the campus feels safe. Resident-life on campus is pretty laid back relative to other campuses which created a positive resident environment.
