5 College Freshman

Academics: Engineering is the most popular study area, and the curriculum is unlike any other. For the most part the registration process was fairly easy.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am an engineering major and so far the program is amazing, I have a new view on the whole subject. My teachers make sure i am actually learning something for my benefit and not just to get a grade.

College Freshman

Campus Strictness: When it comes to drugs and alcohol use my school is very strict. Many students have been kicked off of campus for violating these policies. If there has been a noise complaint, those involved sometimes do not even get a warning. I think that sometimes the police are too strict. I always hear of them breaking up some type of fun. Maybe if there were more fun activities on campus, then students would not have to create there own fun and therefore the police would not feel the need to break them up.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I believe that the professors really want you to succeed. The curriculum is very engaging. The registration process was not too hard and thorough. There are tutoring options for those students that need extra help and the student center is always there to help students in other ways as well. The library is a great place to study. If it is a nice day out, studying outside is nice and relaxing way to study.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The nursing program is very great at Robert Morris. The curriculum gets the students involved in nursing early. There are nursing communities in order to help the students interact with other nursing majors. There are study options the help the nursing majors succeed. Along the way, there will be lots of internships and job opportunities. As a nursing major, you must maintain tests scores averaging at least an 80% in order to move forward in the program. There is a wonderful nursing lab, that students who have reached that part of their curriculum, engage in.

Diversity: There are many international students at Robert Morris. I believe that the campus is pretty diverse but there is also room for way more diversity. I think that a challenge on campus regarding ethnic/ racial diversity is that students of all backgrounds do not usually attend the events such as the different dances. I think that everyone would have a better time if everyone would participate and not just one ethnic group. Overall, I think that everyone is pretty accepting. You are free to believe I what ever you want. There are different religious clubs on campus that you can join.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are different housing options on and off campus. There are dorms strictly for freshmen which are your average dormitories. After freshmen year, you are able to apply for your desired housing. But, those with more credits and those who are athletes pick their housing first. Therefore you are not guaranteed your desired housing and will have to pick something else, most likely off campus because the on campus housing will be filled. There are two off campus housing options. One is a hotel option. This option costs a little more than the standard housing. The second option is what used to be a senior home. Overall the dormitories are not too far from classes, café, etc.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are several different computer labs at my school. Therefore, If you do not have your own personal computer, you are not out of luck. Fortunately during the weekdays, the main computer lab is open 24-hrs, which comes in handy. There are also computers at the library for the students to use. Certain majors, such as nursing majors and nuclear med majors receive a lot more printing money than other majors. The network is pretty reliable however there are areas that are more reliable than others. Sometimes the connection is slow. Some students have their own printers but it is not a necessity.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene at my school is somewhat noticeable but I do not think that many students take part. I think that more people including those who are underage drink alcohol then they do drugs. My campus does not tolerate any type of drug use. Those who have been caught, have been kicked off of campus and those who have been found underage drinking have had repercussions. I believe that there is peer pressure to take part but you can still have a good social life without drugs or alcohol.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I think that Robert Morris is some what diverse therefore there is not a specific look that students on this campus share. There are a variety of guys and girls. A lot of them may share the same interests in sports and academics. Some wear formal attire, while other are more comfortable in active wear. Sports players interact with non athletic students, Greek students communicate with non Greeks, etc.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not yet had an internship however I cannot wait to get one. In order to find an internship that is right for me, I am going to speak with my advisor so that they can help me and prepare me for what I need.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am in the nursing program at Robert Morris. This is the main reason why I decided to attend this school. The program thus far is great. I am a little nervous for the future because I know that it is only going to get harder however, I am sure that they will prepare me and I will be successful. I love that they start your nursing classes the early. As a freshman, I was able to take an introduction to nursing during the spring semester. During this course, my professor was very helpful and thorough in his teaching. Throughout the course you must maintain tests scores with an 80% average, which can be pretty tough. I believe that in the future there will be many job opportunities and internships.

College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on my campus. I have had several night classes and needed to walk back to my dorm alone. I think that the police are there if you need them. However I've only seen the police around, busting parties and giving out tickets, in this sense I think that they are more of an annoyance. We have fire drills in our dorm halls every now and then. In a freshman seminar class, several campus police officers come in and talk to the students about safety and important campus policies. Whenever there is a health problem, a student can go to the health center. Depending on the time of the day, the doctor may not be in. Therefore, the student may have to come back the next day, which can sometimes be an issue.

College Freshman

Parking: I am not sure how to rate the parking. All students must obtain a parking permit in order to park on campus. If you are parked in a spot that is not designated on your parking permit you will be fined or if you are parked and you do not have a parking permit you will be fined. Once a parking permit is purchased, it is valid through the school year. the cost of the parking permit is around $150-$200. I do not believe that there is off campus parking. The need for a car on campus is based on the student.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The campus dining is okay but it could definitely be better. In the beginning, the menu seems fresh and exciting but after a couple of months roll by you notice that the same foods are being served. For example, every Monday there is mash potato bowl, with your other daily options of pizza line, salad bar, wraps, entrée line, pasta, and firehouse grill. The entrée line does change but sometimes the food there is not appetizing. Some people have even blamed the food for their stomach problems. I think that if there was more variety and better tasting food that would be awesome and refreshing. I also think that some of the food options are too expensive. Some students find themselves with no more meal plan money with still a month or two to go. A lot of people as well as myself think that, "Why am I paying so much, for something that I do not even like." Aside from the food, the dining hall is really nice. I think that Romo's is very convenient. When the café has closed, student can grab a bite to eat at Romo's. the food here is really great and you can buy other delicious treats as well.

College Freshman

Facilities: I am not sure how to rate this section. There are certain things to do on campus such as volleyball, basketball, etc but I think that there could be more. So, I do not think that social aspect is what stands out about Robert Morris. However the academics at this university are outstanding. I know the nursing program to be one of the top. They focus on helping the student not only in college, but also after graduation. They have a very high placement rate.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: The biggest question on this campus in my opinion is, "What is there to do?" Sometimes you find yourself trying to make your own fun. But on a brighter note, there are basketball courts outside and when the gym is not occupied you are allowed to play there. Lots of students play volleyball on the sand courts outside. There is a weight room and exercise center for those who want to workout. The library has been renovated and study may go here for a quiet area and/or to study. There is also a student center for those students who need extra help. I believe that there are not enough campus activities that would appeal to everyone. I know that you can't always please everyone but having a variety of events would help.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Unfortunately, this school does not have every Fraternity and Sorority. Therefore if you wanted to join a specific fraternity or sorority that this school did not have, you would have to pick another one or try to create that specific chapter on the campus, which is a lot of work. With all that said, the Greek life on campus is very fun and vibrant. If you are not apart of Greek life you will not be treated negatively in any way. I am not aware that this campus Greek housing on campus or off campus. The most exciting thing about Greek life for Greek students and non- Greeks is the Greek games, which is very fun to participate in and watch.

College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I do not have an exact word to describe the local atmosphere of Robert Morris. It all depends on how you look at it. If you have a car, there are several things that you can do. Not too far from the campus, but surely not walking distance, there is a mall, movie theater, variety of restaurants, and many other stores such as Wal-Mart and Best buy. Also, if you are willing to drive about 30-40 min a way to Pittsburgh, there are lots of things that you can do. However, if you do not have a car there are not many attractions around campus to explore. Those without a car have the option of public transportation, but this style of transportation does not appeal to everyone. Every once in a while the school will provide transportation to the mall, which is very convenient.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: There are many transportation option at Robert Morris University. Unlike most schools, freshman are allowed to have a car on campus. For those students who have a car, they are able to get around by their own means, as long as they have an applicable parking pass. If a student does not have a car they are able to use the campus shuttle as transportation. The campus shuttle has a range of locations that are of great benefits to the students and the best part is that the shuttle is free. Robert Morris also has zip cars available for students. In addition, there are walk ways designed for those students who would like to walk to the small shopping center across from campus. Students can even use taxis, which are usually last resort due to the cost, but it is always good to have this as an option. Out of all of the transportation options, I believe that the campus shuttle is the most important. It is very instrumental in getting students from campus off campus housing and other convenient places.

2 College Freshman

Majors: It was never really hard to get into the program I'm in.

3 College Freshman

Majors: A lot of people get jobs after school so that's good. However, I do not like the school and will probably be transferring after this year.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi always seems to fail when you need it the most.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's okay. If you don't have a car then the closest place to go is Burger King.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Residence life is really lazy but our dorms are

Bigger than average dorms

So that's a plus

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.
