4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Bristol is a cute little town with great places to get takeout. Colt state park is a nice place to go for a run down by the water or to study outside. There are a lot of stores to go to for convenience needs. Newport is only 30 minutes away for more good restaurants and fun. Middletown and Portsmouth offer a lot of stores as well. It's a good idea to get off campus when you can, even for something as simple as getting milkshakes, because campus itself can get boring and repetitive. Go do something new off campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Roger Williams is set in Bristol, a really quiet, peaceful town. The people here are really nice and there's places to go if you're looking for a restaurant. Newport is extremely close so it makes the local atmosphere even better.
