3 College Freshman

Athletics: The recreation center is okay but it is not the greatest.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not know anything about off campus housing, so maybe RIC should promote it more often.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining for RIC does not exist, but there is always uncle tony's

1 College Freshman

Administration: Do not come to RIC if you are trying to have some fun.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid is great you know what you are doing unlike me.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I can't really rate the "party scene" because I do not go partying but do not try partying in at RIC , the RAs are verying annoying

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is pretty horrible. Unless you want to get diarrhea every night don't eat it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Live at Rhode Island College is not the best. Currently I am a freshman living at thorp which is alright. I does help when you have 17.5 credits of classes and you need to rest for a little. Overall the thorp building room are pretty small. The bathroom needs some work done, right now in my suite we don't have a soap dish for the shower. The food at Donovan needs to be stepped up because we live in Providence which is a major "foodie" town. I usually get sick also when I eat food from the dining center but luckily I live back home in Pawtucket where my mom can cook me some home cook meals.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: i live at least forty minutes away at my parents house

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of mom and pop kind of restaurants and diners.

College Freshman

Administration: I honestly have not been at the school long enough to tell.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I recieved a presidential scholarship from the school when I was accepted for 2000 a year until I graduate. I also recieved grants and a federal loan to the point that I have more than enough for tuition and my supplies. I use the remaining for either gas or emergencies.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I commute so most days I go to class and then go straight home. I have not made many friends at my school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall is a large eating area with fresh french fries that are delicious. The prices are not extremely expensive but are not cheap either. They have prepackaged food and fresh hot meals for every type of customer.

The cafe is just as good as donnovan dining hall in terms of prices. They have pizza and not just peperroni but lots of variety like margarita and buffalo chicken. They also have a lot of baked goods like brownies and croissants. Their best item in my opinion is their smoothies.

The convenience store and vending machines on campus are extremely expensive and have very small prepackaged portions. I only really go when I want one of their salted pretzel dark chocolate protein bars or a snapple that i can not find anywhere else on campus.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are relatively few accounts of sexual assault, there has been one email in particular the past few months.

College Junior

Athletics: I do not participate in any sports on campus.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

College Junior

Party Scene: I am a commuter and spend very little time on campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Parking is usually a difficult situation for off-campus housing. Safety depends on the neighborhood, but typically students would stay indoors at night or travel in groups. Off-campus housing is definitely cheaper than living on campus, as with many other institutions. Proximity varies though most is relatively close to the RIC campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Sweet and it's pretty good. I live in a double connected to two other doubles by one bathroom. The girls in my suite have had a lot of drama, but I suppose thats normal. Sweet has a cleaning staff so the bathrooms are usually okay. Beds are uncomfortable so make sure you bring a mattress pad!

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I know we have greek life, but we may as well not even have it at all. I've always wanted to be in a sorority so when I got to RIC I always asked around about it. I never heard anything really good about it ever. If I hadn't asked around, I wouldn't of even known it existed. It's below average (like everything else at this school)

Off-Campus Dining: We are in Providence so you have endless options. Any ethnic foods, nice restaurants, or even just food chains are all within minutes from the school.

Guys & Girls: Everyones pretty nice, girls can dress up and look nice or wear sweatpants everyday either way no one really cares.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: This school is extremely diverse. No matter what your race, sexuality, religion, or political beliefs, you'll find people on campus with similar ideas and beliefs. Everyone is extremely accepting.
