Roger Williams University Reviews
Review Roger Williams University
It's a great day to be a Hawk! I enjoyed my time at RWU. 95% of the professors I've had at this school are just incredible people and so full of knowledge. I loved the classes I took and most were pretty engaging. Commons though... the dining hall is actually really good. Some meals were a little iffy, but usually you could count on Commons to have some really good, hearty and healthy meals that definitely don't feel like your typical college food. Athletics is alright. I worked in athletics and liked watching our teams play, but they're not exactly a gathering point. I'd say school spirit is a little lacking in that manner. The location of the schools is so great. Right on the bay and the view of the bridge never gets old. But the wind and rain is real. It's 30 minutes from Newport which is so nice in the summer, early fall, and spring. It's also 30 minutes from Providence. Bristol itself is a nice quaint town, and Colt State Park is a great place to study.
Roger Williams University provides both the support and encouragement needed to successed academically. The professors have the students best intrest in mind, as they truly care about your success. The small class size allows one to create close connections with peers and professors. Not only are the professors and academics wonderful, the location of Roger Williams is breathtaking. Looking out your window, to gaze at the sunrise across the bay is absolutely spectacular. This school is a great fit for anyone who strives to successed academically and hopes to gain lasting bonds with peers and staff.
On Wednesdays and Thursdays most people on to the clubs/bars. On Friday and Saturday most people go to parties on and off campus. The best and biggest parties are definitely off campus, but other good parties are at bayside, almeida and new res! I suggest getting a fake id. Also, younger boys sometimes have trouble getting into big parties but thats at every school, so if you want to go I suggest bringing a couple girls! Also, don't show up to parties with 10+ people, it is obnoxious
