"I enjoyed my time at Roger Williams University immensely. I made incredible connections with faculty, professors, Deans, Administrators, and students that I will cherish for the rest of my life. The campus was all around beautiful, right by the water, which made it easy to go to class each and every day. Professors were always available for consultation both through email and in person before and after class. Each professor had the desire to get to know students individually, and cared for their success. This created a positive learning environment, where support was consistent. Most of my classes were hands on, or at least interactive, which I found helpful to the success of my learning. Knowing someone in each of my classes was typical, and extremely helpful. I found success within the Gabelli School of Business in particular because of the Professional Business Fraternity that I joined, Delta Sigma Pi, where I found many of my closest friends, as well as had incredible business opportunities. Outside of the academic environment, the food was always top notch. Upper and lower commons were always clean, and always had new and exciting food options. Starbucks on campus also had great service and coffee, for quite bite or pick me up between classes. Living areas were also kept in stellar condition. As a three year Resident Assistant, I enjoyed being able to make connections in the residence halls with students, coworkers, and the Coordinator of Residence Education who oversaw the area. There was always something to do, so I never felt bored. Along with this, I always felt safe, something incredibly important to me coming from a very small home town. As a student athlete, I felt constantly supported by my teammates and coaches, as well. Though I was always busy, I never felt too stressed or that my homework was out of control. I felt as though I had many families at RWU, and that I fit in everywhere. I wish I could go back and redo the incredible four years that I had at RWU! I wouldn't change or trade them for anything!"

"I attended Roger Williams University in the graphic design program back in 2014. There were definitely both pros and cons to this university and program. I thoroughly enjoyed many of the projects we were assigned, and I feel that the program really helped me to hone my design esthetic. However, the career center was completely useless for students in graphic design, pr, communications, etc. If I solely utilized their help when trying to find my for-credit internship, I would not have graduated. This was brought to their attention many times, so I hope that this issue has been resolved in the three years since I attended. I have held two employment positions since graduation, both which were not directly related to my undergrad degree, but rather related to marketing, pr, advertising, and event planning. In each position, I brought my graphic design knowledge and was able to amp it up. However, I don't feel that the assignments we had in school prepared me for these areas, which is why I now have to seek a graduate degree in marketing and pr in order to fill in the "holes" that I did not learn at Roger Williams or in the field."

"Awesome teachers and great curriculum. The culture at the school is somewhat anti-environmental and anti-progressive in most ways. The students generally come from wealthy New England families. Sports teams rule the social scene because there are no frats. The location is amazing, right next to the bay. However the beach is littered with pot smokers and random fishermen. The food is excellent. There are lots of great clubs but it is fighting an uphill battle to start one. It isn't very well known and your degree might not hold so much weight unless you are in business."

"Tell us about your college experience.My college experience was amazing, I wouldn't change where I went. I also met my significant other there my freshman year and we have been dating ever since. I wish I had majored in something I could actually get a job in. Students really need to understand that they are going to school in order to get a job - so pick something that'll make money!Would you get the same degree if you could start over?I would choose to major in some kind of financial or business major because there are more jobs relevant to that and therefore more money to be made.What advice can you offer other students?Stay focused, experience everything that you can in order to figure out what you can do for a living."
