3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Just like any other college campus the new is amazing and the old needs some work.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Other then the crazy greek life on campus really the only thing that sets us apart is the HIGH PRICE.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: If you like to drink RMU is a good place for it... between the greek life and the local bars competing who can get more college students in the door on Thursday nights

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I really do like my major. I like how they have been able to make it available online and in the class room. However just as anyone else I am worried about what is to come after college.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: No real issues getting into the program. Maybe that could be a bad thing.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: RMU students like to party their is no question about that. However it is noticeable that we live in a small community because you see high school students at these parties.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus housing provided by the school is expensive as can be. Other then that if you can find a place on your own that is not college owned you should be good.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: campus facilities should take a little better care of the areas... considering people are forever stuck in their parking spots because they have been plowed in by snow.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: RMU students love their sports. And it really is a big part of campus life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All and all a pretty great school with some great people. For the money though I would have definitely chosen somewhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Their is lots to do within a short distance. Would like to see a little bit more activities and places that are more college age related. Its a community that is trying to be a college town.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: This is the first year I have applied for financial aid and the process seems okay. I guess it could be easier.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Not so sure hat off campus parking they are talking about. Ya we have off campus housing that has parking but I am not going to park their and then shuttle my way to class. Parking needs HELP.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Campus shuttle will take you around campus and also to off campus housing. however it would be easier just to drive yourself if the campus had greater parking.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have seen worse. But I have seen better. Parking is terrible which makes it really difficult.

2 College Student

Parking: If you leave to get lunch in the middle of the day finding a parking spot is very difficult

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: It's not a "party" school like you would think of at most colleges. An average party will consist of 10-20 people if you're on campus. The nice part about it is not being overwhelming and you can get to know people and play games. The sports teams throw the best parties in either Washington or off campus. If you're underage, your best bet for staying safe from cops is to go off campus. It's easy to find rides to take you to off campus parties. They have DD's that take turns driving on different nights. People are inclined to drink on the weeknights because there aren't as many cops that patrol. People 21 and over usually go to dive bars on Thursdays. South Side is popular when people turn 21.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football, basketball and D1 hockey are the most attended. This is a big sports-involved school because it's NCAA. We have really talented players that get recruited from everywhere. There is a big audience for the popular sports but not so much for others like lacrosse, field hockey, and soccer. The games are exciting events to look forward to.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: This school is pretty safe when it comes to drugs and alcohol. Obviously, anywhere you go you will find some people making dumb/unsafe decisions that could get them into trouble. People learn how to drink so they don't get caught by cops, but it's still difficult to do. Every weekend it's expected that someone gets a citation. Alcohol is the most popular and it's easy to get, but you can still go to parties and socialize without drinking and not feel pressured. The people who don't drink usually go home on weekends anyways. Hard drugs are rare at this school, mostly weed, which people are discrete about, and some study drugs. Overall, the party scene doesn't get too out of hand

4 College Freshman

Computers: They school just renovated the library and put in brand new computers. It was definitely much needed. There is a 24 hour computer lab which is very helpful as well, but the computers do tend to run slow. Don't waste money on a printer because you have so much money for printing. I would recommend bringing your own laptop for personal use and when you don't feel like leaving your dorm. I've never had a problem finding a computer to use. The Internet is a hit or miss. Sometimes it can be extremely slow!

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The one good thing about this school is the location it's in--in a town but a short drive from the city. To live in moon twp is expensive compared to other surrounding towns. If you're 21 and over the night life is great for you--local dive bars but also clubs and nice places in the city. Pittsburgh is a nice place to visit and shop at. If you're new to the city there is a lot to do. There's stuff happening downtown all the time along with the many museums and historical buildings and tours. WE have awesome sports teams. The games are always so much fun, but the weather sucks. If you're originally from the area, there is a good chance you will stay here.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: People who are involved in greek life like it and there are some who are involved in it that don't even care for it or the people. The dues are expensive. If you're not a greek you don't really take them seriously. People use the greeks for the parties they throw, which in my opinion aren't that good anyway. They're very strict and have rules that non-greeks think are pointless like not wearing letters if they're drinking in a picture. Very cliquey and annoying if they're all with each other. I don't see fraternity guys that date girls unless they're in a sorority. Greeks sponsor some events on campus that I've liked. When the housing process comes around, some members get together and pick an apartment or a suite to live in or get a house off campus, but there is no special housing.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: From what I've heard about living off campus, people really like it. It's a bit pricey unless you live further away because in general the area is expensive to live in. As long as you have a car the convenience is great (approximately a 2 minute drive). The apartments are nice and there are a wide selection to choose from. Usually people will live off campus if they're with greek life or they're a senior. It's more common to live in the on campus apartments as an upperclassman.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: For how small the campus is, the level of diversity is high. There is a month dedicated to diversity and it's encouraged in clubs, activities, food, and with speakers we bring to the school. I've heard of people coming from all around the world for various reasons. There are groups based on sexual orientation, political, and religious beliefs, but they don't broadcast their beliefs and make you feel uncomfortable. As far as I've seen people are mature and accepting of differences.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Compared to other schools, students pay so much to live on campus that doesn't compare to the expected value. The dorms need to be renovated, especially the older ones. Free laundry is a plus, but that means everyone does it there, so it can be hard to get a washer/dryer available. The apartments are so expensive to live in compared to other schools, but off campus housing isn't much cheaper either. The convenience of living on campus is nice, but I would choose Yorktown if you're a sophomore and above. Nicer rooms, beds, private bathroom for everyone, new gym and food court, less strictness, more amenities, and an off campus feeling. I've heard being an R.A. is worth the time for the free room and board, meal plan, and parking.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

RMU goes above and beyond to prepare students for future careers, with career fairs, career expos, and the never-ending help from the Career Center. RMU’s ColonialTRAK is also incredibly helpful, and even after graduating, students are allowed to use it, just as they are allowed to use the Career Center. RMU has very high placement rates for alumni (94 percent for undergraduates). And the RMU Web site states that “one of the ultimate outcomes for an institution like RMU, whose curriculum is centered upon applied knowledge, is the willingness of employers to hire its graduates.”

RMU has about 5,000 students, so it's not a huge campus, but a good enough size to meet plenty of people and have a good time. It’s not overwhelming, but it’s also not underwhelming. The amount of time professors take with helping students is a huge advantage. There is personal attention that comes along with the 16-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio. Classes are not lecture halls; they are interactive and group discussions are always encouraged. Overall, when asked, the majority of students like most everything about RMU, though they would change a few things here and there. The major complaint is that there isn't enough to do on campus, which can take a toll on the social aspect of the school. Regardless, on the whole, RMU is a great school with great professors and atmosphere. As the campus continues to grow, so do the opportunities for the students.
