I attended from 1991-1995 and cannot say enough about the people and the education at this awesome institution.

I am very excited my son will be attending this University. Our Open House presentation was well organized with a fantastic overview run by attending students. It was extremely informative and the stu...dents were knowledgeable and friendly. The campus is beautiful and well maintained. Views are breathtaking. Opportunities endless. Tools available for students (library, technology, personal assistance) are on the cutting edge. Education top notch. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff and teachers, combined with their actual experience as many are alums of RWU, gave me a confident feeling that this will be the right fit for my son. This is not just a job for them; they love what they do and genuinely care about their students. Since committing to RWU, those we are involved with have made us feel like family. I can't be happier with our experience so far and with the overall feeling that Roger Williams is the right choice for my son. See More

We have attended multiple open houses in the north east this year with our daughter. The well organized open house that we attended at Roger Williams was one of the best. The campus was well maintaine...d. The views were breathtaking. President Farrish's opening speech was so down to earth and helped my husband and I truly understand the business of higher education. He clearly and eloquently informed us of the value of a RWU education. The Meet the Dean (Susan McTiernan) was informative and inspirational. She was well prepared, self-assured and knowledgeable. The marketing/social media/web development presentation by Kathy Mickey and Al Cutting was OFF THE CHARTS! They were the perfect blend information and enthusiasm. You can tell that they love what they do and it is not merely a job for them. See More

Toured the school yesterday during Family Weekend. While the weather wasn't optimal, I was still impressed with beautiful campus as well as the academic buildings and library. I was also pleasantly su...rprised how spacious the dorm rooms are compared to some of the other schools we've visited. Definitely one of our top 3 choices. Guides were fantastic! See More

It was wonderful, I went to the open house they held on 13th. The staff was attentive to our needs and very helpful with questions. The campus is very well taken care of and the professor of Historic ...Preservation is really cool. Because of this open house I will be applying to this university and making this my #1 pick. My only criticism is that it was kinda hard to get a full feel of things because of the short time we had. Maybe make the open house a little bit longer next time? See More

Very organized Open House- our tour guide, Tyler, was very informative as were the professors who spoke with my daughter and I in the Biology department.
I was impressed with the school's president ...who spoke candidly with parents about tuition cost and graduation expectations. I am grateful for his candor and his willingness to make education affordable for students as well as provide vigorous curriculum. See More

We loved the Open House. Everyone we came in contact with was helpful and kind. The information session about architecture was very helpful. My son, Robert Rice, was nervous about getting accepted. Th...e professor took the time to advise him and calm his nerves! We love Roger Williams! This is my son's first choice. See More

Nothing special. Full of ignorant, arrogant, unfriendly students. Uninformative. All they do is brag about 45% of the campus has a bay view, they're the only Law school in RI, and how their food is... one of the best by "bon appetit". I was never persuaded as to why I should consider or attend this university. Reached out to Transfers and never heard back.

Completely turned me off from going to this university.

If I heard really really awesome one more time I was going to scream.. Please teach your guides to avoid saying really really awesome, and be aware of your ahhs, umms, and likes especially when one is... a PR major See More

I visited Roger Williams, about 2-3 weeks ago. I went for a campus tour. I fell in love with the whole campus, and the Marine Biology information, which I was overwhelmingly happy with and knew that t...his school will possibly be my choice. Cant wait to go back to visit, but even more, cant wait to possibly be a student there... See More
