Roger Williams University Reviews
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 is a great school not only academically but socially. The professors are fantastic and make it their mission to get to know each one of their students on a personal level. They notice when a student is feeling down and are always there for comfort. Along with the professors, Roger Williams provides many resources and help for students who may have questions or concerns. If a student is struggling in a course, the school provides a tutoring center open all day so the struggling student can get the help needed to understand the material. By providing career and job fairs, I am sure that when I graduate I will be able to get a job that I love and am enthusiastic about. Overall, Roger Williams is a fantastic school which really makes it a mission of theirs to make sure all their students get the proper education so that they can graduate and survive in the real world.
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.
