3 College Freshman

Administration: I've had no issues with administration.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got the financial help that I needed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not expensive for a commuter with no meal plan.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many close restaurants to the school. You could either turn west on mount pleasant and go to Putnam pike, or turn left and venture towards thayer street.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I would say RIC isn't a place where it's 50% girls and 50% guys. Although RIC does have more of a female population, the student body is very diverse. we have student ages ranging from 17 - 60. Most people have open minds about LGBQ relationships.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: RIC is a pretty safe school. You don't hear about sexual assault or violence on a monthly basis here. If it does happen, it's rare.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's nice that RIC has its own gym that students can use year round.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: There are a few Campus policeman who know their job and know how to correctly execute it. However there are one or two that maybe questionable.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Who can say no to free money?

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Personally I eat at Donovan nearly every time I am on campus. What can I say, I'm used to low quality food.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I'm not exactly sure how the housing is at Rhode Island College. I am completing this survey to get money so I am able to love on campus for the upcoming school-year.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not the best person to answer this question due to the fact that I live at home, but from what I know, I can say that cost is usually the biggest concern and issue with off campus housing as well as convenience. OASIS at RIC would probably be the best place to go for guidance about off campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Being a commuter is a perk when you have resident friends. I'm able to take them around the city and let them experience Providence. The city and east side has a vast variety of restaurants, from Indian, Chinese, Italian, sushi, really whatever you would be in the mood for they will have it!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are definitely a positive impact on student experience. They offer an escape from books and writing, as well as giving you more of an opportunity to meet new people. I haven't attended many parties, but the ones I have, I can happily say I had a good time with good people.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I've only had to deal with the campus police once, for a car accident. While I was in class my car was hit in the front, and the student who did it was kind enough to leave a note with her information and all I had to do was report it and get in touch with her and go from there. Again, from what I've been told about campus police, if they hear of or have any information about drugs or alcohol being present in dorms, they will certainly reprimand them right then and there.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial Aid, thinking about it gives me anxiety, but at Rhode Island College, the people who you will deal with for financial aid will make it worth your while. They make the process so much more easier to go through. Any questions or concerns you may have, they have the answer. You may have some work to do, like rummaging through files and drawers to find certain forms, but my experience was worth it because I was offered financial aid and it really did make a difference because there wasn't so much worry about money.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: As a commuter, I tend to bring a lunch or just wait until I get home, but on the rare occasion I do eat on campus, I will usually go to the RIC Cafe. The Cafe has a variety of food, whether you're in the mood for a salad, a wrap or pizza, they will have you covered! The atmosphere of the cafe is also very comfortable and you'll always see a familiar, friendly face.

Party Scene: Most parties are greek associated - but they aren't only for greek students. All on campus parties are open to all students past 10:30 I believe. No one goes out before then anyway. While I was greek, I went to the majority of parties with my non-greek friends or a combination of people from different organizations. These parties to get old, but thats part of growing up. By 21, you can make your way outside of campus for some fun.

Administration: I had a fun college experience. You can do just about anything you want to do so long as you are safe and respectful. Outside of just having fun - the campus is very supportive of everything - starting a new organization, protesting injustice, creating a new internship with a community organization or business (and giving you credit for it). Rhodes empowers you make your college experience what you want it to be.

5 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Rhodes is an expensive school. I got a significant merit based scholarship to help pay for it and my parents helped me with the rest. At first, my parents wanted me to take a larger scholarship to my state school. After I graduated they were so happy I decided to go to Rhodes - and so was I!

Campus Food: Beautiful dining hall. I was very happy junior and senior year when I had my own kitchen on campus and could minimize my use of the campus food options. The food isn't that bad, but everything begins to taste the same when you eat it year after year. Meal credit should roll over - if you have a 7/week plan, if you don't use them that week, they are gone. Also you can't swipe twice - if you have a friend visiting, you can't use your meal plan to pay for their meal, even if you haven't used all of your meals for that week. Great school, but the company they use for food is ripping them off.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I dont know what it is like to live near school.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I dont really get food from around here, i commute from MA and i dont usually stop to get food around here

3 College Freshman

Administration: I dont really know. I am always abiding by the rules and i dont seem to be in administration that often

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I dont really party around school, i just go to school for an education
