So far my experience at Salve Regina has been amazing. I've loved getting to know the other nursing students and having a nursing advisor. My school hosts a lot of community service activities and has a lot of clubs, which make the school great and the people are really outgoing and care for the community. My school is beautiful, and is unique because we live in and around some of the Newport mansions, and are just a few feet away from the ocean! I would stick with my school if I were to choose again, because I always have fun, have made life long friends, and am confident in becoming a nurse straight from graduating.
Review Salve Regina University
Campus is beautiful , renovations completed on the main academic building are great. Dorms great, offer good variety. Majority of the profs. care for students and want to see them succeed. Classes are not too large-you have the ability to know your professors & classmates. Nice student amenities -free laundry, free admission to local mansions, free public transportation. Plenty of local restaurants/cafes/bars. Great shopping in Downtown Newport, lots of local history & beauty.
Pretty dead on the winter weekends-especially for those who don't like to party but still "want fun" -if you want a party you can def find one-otherwise you either chill in the dorm/watch movies with friends, go downtown (limited Winter activity), day trip, or go home if close.
Food on the weekends is awful-bring freezer meals/ready-made food or be prepared to order/go out. Health Center is a joke-find a doc/walk in clinic in the area or stock up on VitaminC and never get sick (impossible in dorms).
I am an upcoming junior attending Salve and so far it has been a great experience. Aside from a little home sickness freshman year, Salve has encouraged me to grow as a person academically and mentally. I have met some of the best people I have ever met in my entire life in the two short years I have attended Salve Regina. There are a multitude of options for students that are struggling in a particular class and always someone willing to help. Aside from this, Newport is a great place to live. There is always something to do and many ways to get involved with the community. It is also cool meeting people from all over the world not only from Salve, but because of the many tourists that visit Newport. There are also many opportunities for employment. Many businesses are always looking for hardworking college students. I myself, work at Flo's Clam Shack in Middletown and absolutely love it. Salve is an amazing school and I would highly recommend it to students who are willing to work hard, want a small school and strive for success.
