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

I love attending RMU. However, I was bullied because I wanted to become friends with people and join a fraternity. I rushed twice and was not accepted. I was hated because a few guys hated me so the whole fraternity hated me and refused to talk to me. Basically Greek life here is biased. Some are nice but some are not. The college also charges too much for what they offer and the college president believes students drop out because they don’t want to finish college but it’s because they can’t afford RMU!
I attended Robert Morris University for my freshman year. It was my dream college. The courses at Robert Morris University offered lots of insight to the subject. For example, my Humanities: Art and Music course included a trip to the Carnegie Museum of Art. The tour guides learned more about the pieces of art from my professor than their boss! My professor was very passionate in her teachings and would encourage us to learn more about art and music on our own time. Anybody can email their professors at anytime and receive a response in a timely matter.

Campus Life at Robert Morris University include many clubs and organizations, honor societies, and Greek Life. I particularly found the Nonprofit Leadership Association (NLA) group to be amazing. They offered many options of community service. Any student can also get a certificate and award if they take some classes about nonprofits through the NLA.
