Rhode Island College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
With any type of degree you only get out of it, what you put into it. If you don't study and work hard you won't take a lot from a given course. That being said, Rhode Island College provides an excellent opportunity to learn. My advice is to buy your books online. The book store prices are beyond ridiculous. Last time I was in the book store I saw a 3 subject notebook going for $12. I almost wanted to laugh if it wasn't sad enough already. Most of the instructors are great. The parking situation is horrendous plan on coming to school 30 to 40 minutes early in order to park and get to class (especially on Mondays). The tuition is pretty affordable compared to many other neighboring colleges. All around it's a pretty good bang for your buck.
The Rhode Island College Fine Arts program is one of the greatest in New England, based on an exemplary faculty that is actively showing in the art field, and a brand new, state of the art facility. Zone of the very best values in the area, even for out-of-state students.
I'm so happy with the department and school. They have been incredible since day one. i was offered so many opportunities with internships and networking, I will be forever grateful. Thanks to this school, they prepared me sufficiently to get accepted into an ivy league grad school.
Rhode Island College has many good resources for those wishing to major in the arts. It is affordable and Providence is a great place for artists to flourish and learn. The professors I had were helpful and informative and many also taught at RISD so they were able to provide a lot of great resources. Professors also curate art shows right on campus within walking distance, which makes it very easy to get inspiration. Our Art Center (Alex and Ani Hall) has been recently renovated and has all new beautiful equipment.
Small college, not much campus life b/c most people are commuters. Good education for the money. Learned enough to get me a decent job.
