WHAT I LIKED

My favorite thing about Roger Williams University is its push for experiential learning, which means there are plenty of opportunities to acquire experience in your field and outside. I think this is a huge benefit of going to RWU and will greatly help to secure and succeed in future jobs.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

While this school is very liberal compared to others, it’s still not perfect, which no place could be, but there definitely could be improvements made. There are plenty of student clubs and organizations within the university which strive to make these improvements, and taking part in said clubs and organizations is a great way to take a part in making the university a better place for everyone.

WHAT I LIKED

The community at Roger Williams is great. There are lots of opportunities to get involved in extracurriculars as well as leadership positions, which are great ways to meet other students with different interests and backgrounds. The academic programs are also very strong, and the professors are great at working with students to create balances between academics and extracurriculars, so students can make the most out of their college experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Don't be fooled by the nice waterfront campus - it's great in the fall and spring, but the winter can get pretty cold and windy!!
