Health & Safety: There hasn't been any campus crime that I heard of recently. I feel safe walking across campus to my car at night time.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some professors are very helpful and actually teach and then there are some who don't do much and read off of power points that were already handed to you prior to class. For class size, it depends really. I've had lectures that were filled with 200+ students and some that had less than 50.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am currently in a sorority and it is the best thing I have done here at RIC. Everyone in the greek life is so welcoming and friendly. We volunteer and raise money for many organizations and participate in numerous events at RIC. The one thing that is mainly encouraged in my sorority is academics. At Rhode Island College, there are no greek housing since it is not allowed by the college. Although there are no housing available, we still meet in our offices where we can go to relax and hang out.

Athletics: There isn't much advertisement about sports games around campus. The most I seen is the baseball or softball team practicing outside will I was in the library.

Overall Experience: Rhode Island College is a small commuter college. The food is average in the Cafeteria but you also have the choice to get food at the Cafe which has a warm environment. As a commuter myself, there isn't much you can do besides go to school, attend class and go home. The best thing I have done so far was join a sorority which gave me friendships and support. Besides that, there isn't much at RIC.

Health & Safety: I don't think that there is ever a real harm or threat on campus. If something happens an email is usually sent to the students so that everyone is aware of the situation. I feel pretty safe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some professors can be very mean and hard to contact. There are professors I've taken classes with who never answer any of my emails and don't have flexible hours to meet with the student. The courses could be a bit more challenging when it pertains to your specific major.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't started to look into internships, or jobs after college yet. I still plan on going to graduate school after I finish my studies here. My friends have told me it's hard find internships and the school doesn't do a great job on helping you find one or prepare for finding one.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There is only one building/dorm on campus that is adequate enough and cleanly enough for students. It is the only dorm that students want to live in because of the layout of the suites. All of the other dorms are drafty, old, dirty, and a lot of times the water is cold. It's not the most enjoyable dorming experience.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Although there isn't a lot of support for my team, the fan club is growing. There have been larger audience turn-outs in our home competitions this year. Our gym needs a lot of work. We need more space, better equipment, and equipment that is checked monthly to make sure it's safe for athletes to practice on. The recreation center is a wonderful facility. Wish they would fix the temperature in there sometimes, it can be almost 100 degrees in there at points.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school is very small and all but one dorm is satisfying to live in. The buildings are old and they need more, new staff to teach. I love that I can do gymnastics at my school but the cost of living on campus is ridiculous for what you get. The dorms aren't clean/up-to date and the dining center is over priced and leaves kids sick sometimes. I think that this school needs to worry less about athletics and more about new buildings and renovations.

Overall Experience: All the professors I have had for my major have been amazing! The only professors I ever have an issue with are the ones who teach my general education courses.

Greek Life: We don't have Fraternity or sorority houses so greek life isn't very big at all here.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We are a division three school for our sports. Compared to high school doing sports here doesn't seem as intense or competitive. My school has a fairly nice recreation center that many students use.

3 College Freshman
