3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It depends on the landlord. Some of them are good, some of them are not so much.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Haywards is the best ice cream place around. Lots of us go there

3 College Junior

Party Scene: We are a pretty reserved college so it doesn't get too crazy.

3 College Junior

Administration: It depends who you get on the phone. I had a secretary one time who was a big power-tripper, no fun.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: There are some emails about scholarships, but other then that you have to go find them yourself.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The campus food is above average and certainly better than I would make. No complaints.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's really convenient for getting to classes quickly and being in the center of the action. It is a great way to start, I met many friends living on campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: There are many options for commuters. The Dion Café would be better if they had more options.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The campus is always clean and welcoming, the resources are great.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are decent places, but waaaay too expensive for what you are getting.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I have lived in Nashua my whole life, so the dining has been the same for me.

3 College Freshman

Administration: they should enforce no underage drinking a bit more.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I would have loved to get my NH Scholar's scholarship that I worked hard for.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I do not party, so I answered from what I have bee told

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: the library café is the only place I eat at riv, so I cant speak for anything else.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: riv has a great, open campus. it is just what I needed.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off-campus. Even seniors live on campus. There is no off-campus housing available to us unless we go out and search for an apartment ourselves. A lot of people live at home and just commute because their homes are close enough.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Rivier is right on Daniel Webster Highway. There a multitude of restaurants available for students to go to. A lot tend to have student discounts as well. Texas Roadhouse has a student discount. There is also a lot of Mexican and Italian options. If you go more towards downtown, there are a lot of pizza places and more Thai, Chinese and other ethnic restaurants. Prices tend not to be too bad.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I really do not know what to say.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My parents did the finical aid and for my part, I had help. I have three older brothers who have been through this before, so my parents are experts on it. One tip however: ask for more. My oldest brother is still living at home and on my parents stuff, but he is in grad school. The school didn't notice that. We wrote a letter explaining the circumstances and we got an extra $2,000. If you ask, you may get more.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Honestly the people just party to get drunk and be dumb. I mean if you like acting sloppy, than the Riv parties would be for you. But its gross.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dinning option we have is either Dion or the Cyber Cafe. Most people prefer the Cafe to the actual dinning hall. In the dinning hall food gets repetitive. It tends to cold. The food isn't flavorful. Need more labels for ice cream saying what is in it. There is a need for more lactose stuff and they need to pay more attention to when the lactose things that we do have start to disappear. They do not have convenient hours. Especially on the weekends when there is only 11-1 and 5-6 for meals. The school has a menu online, however it never follows it. I don't think I've ever gone when the menu online has been right. We never know what the desserts are as they never label them. We have $150 flex cash on our IDs, which most people run out of quickly as they can only be used at the Cyber Cafe. We cannot even use them on vending machines.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On campus we have four dorms. Two are regular college dorms, then there is a wellness living and a suite style. The wellness living is kind of like suite style. There is an option for a triple room. In the hallways there're doors. Behind each door there are three more doors. One is for a double, one is for a single, and the last is for a bathroom that the three people in that group share. The suite style dorm has 11 people per suite and a team captain. The different options for dorms are nice since it gives people a variety to chose from. However, Rivier is a small school and there are only around 500-700 residents on campus. Most residents live close by so a lot of people go home on weekends. It tends to get very quiet, but the Student Programming Board tries to make sure that there are things to do for those who do stay, which is nice. I've noticed that the dorms tend to get pretty messy. Our bathroom tends to be disgusting by the end of the night. The cleaning staff does not work on the weekends, so by Sunday night nobody wants to step foot in the garbage room and there's normally only one toilet that is clean. As for the cost of living on campus, that's about 12,000 a semester I think. It's not too too bad, but it is also a private college, so even though I'm in-state, it's still not cheap. The housing process is pretty easy. I'm a freshman and we just got to start the process for next year. Me and two of my friends are hoping to get into the wellness dorm, we don't hear back until March 30th.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food options are always available to a variety of tastes/likings.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are close to the educational buildings and other resources.
