Robert Morris University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (7)
Choosing to attend Robert Morris University was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. Not only did it prepare me for a career as a psychologist, it allowed me to grow as an individual and inspired me to follow my dreams. One of the best things about RMU is the small class size and the faculty to student ratio. While RMU has all the resources of a large university, it still feels personal and you get to know all of your professors and classmates very well. You are able to ask for help if you need it, and you will not get lost in the shuffle like you might at a larger institution. The professors and staff truly care about the students and their success. I can't say enough about all the support and encouragement I received over the past four years. There are so many opportunities to get involved on campus, from intramural sports to Greek life to clubs and student activities. I would recommend RMU to anyone in a heartbeat.
Loved the school and the professor were great. The year I graduated (2009) there were alot of people losing jobs. Along with no experience was also a big impact of Why I could not find a job. If I had to do it over I would have got more involved in school and did a few internships geared to my degree.
I began my time at Robert Morris as a transfer student. From the very beginning the staff and advisers were very helpful in getting me set up in the classes that I needed to complete my education. I was able to successfully move through my classes with many opportunities to learn in the classroom and the field. I was able to be involved with many clubs and organizations. The relationships I formed and the information that i learned eventually lead me to the job that i currently hold. It is in my field of study and I began here just 3 months after graduating. Robert Morris was an extremely positive experience for me.
RMU was a great school anesthetically. It had a beautiful campus, always had activities going on whether it was a sporting event or a fundraising bake sale. The student body was less than desirable unless you lived on campus. A frequent complaint was the divide between commuters and residents, then residents and Greek life. The staff was also split, good and bad, in my personal opinion. I had some great professors who cared; I had some professors who could care if you were to succeed or not. The scheduling staff is horrible. I scheduled the majority of my classes myself. There are many places to hang out on campus and the food is actually fairly decent (while the price is not). Overall, I recommend RMU if you just want to go to class and not be bothered with and somewhat find yourself in the solitude, otherwise be prepared to find yourself labeled a snot, slut, or jock so you can fit in and get a pricey degree.
Great school for what it offers. I wish it had more extracurricular science-based activities to pad my resume out of college, but that's up to the student to look for.
It was great to get a 4 year degree in 3 years. We only had 1 week off for summer break, but it was nice to be done while my friends still had another year to go. I also liked that I didn't have to schedule my own classes. It was quick and efficient.
My college experience was very rewarding because I learned a lot and I met some great people in the process. The teachers were very helpful and the curriculum was designed for success. I enjoyed the environment and learned a great deal.
If I chose to go back to school I would choose a different area of study. The accounting field which I am in currently has a lot of stress and it is very easy to burn yourself out like I did. I would choose a profession based on overall satisfaction and happiness as opposed to what can earn me the most money.
