4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Our class sizes are small, which I prefer because I can have a relationship with my professor rather than just another student in a 300 person lecture hall.The professors take time to get to know us and assure they want us to succeed. Most professors are easy to reach at any reasonable hour of the day whether it's through text or through email.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My university believes in getting us out in our field as early as possible. One of the main reasons why I choose my school is because it was the only school that placed me in an elementary school to start my student observation hours freshman year, rather than second semester sophomore year. They offer a lot of opportunities to any grad class to start working in their field through internships, study abroad, etc.

Health & Safety: Public safety is always a call away. They will do anything for you whether it's to jump start your car, unlock your dorm room, or drive you to work in bad weather when you do not feel safe driving yourself. They are always there for you to make sure you are safe and comfortable.

Campus Housing: Even though I am a commuter, I spend a majority of my time on campus in the residence halls hanging out with my friends, sleeping over, or studying in their dorms. Unfortunately though, the cost to stay on campus is expensive. I would love to stay on campus rather than drive 30 minutes every day to class, and then another 30 minutes back home late at night.I wish there were better opportunities given to reduce the amount of on campus living. Even if that meant more grants, scholarships, etc. rather than payment plans.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our men's volleyball team is phenomenal, and the coach has been awarded every year for best in the league. (Or some high honor award to that area). All the student athletes are passionate in both their sport and in their academics. Coach's encourage their players to preform their best in both areas.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You have a relationship with all your teachers. You're not just another student. Being on campus is like my second home. Students and faculty are always approachable and friendly. My school is a community of unique and driven students.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus is very safe. there are never any problems that have to do with sexual assult or anyone getting hurt! I feel perfectly safe walking from one side of campus to the other alone, even in the middle of the night.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Just about everything about this school is great. the size of the classes is perfect, they are not too big or too small. Campus is awesome, it is always well kept but more places to sit outside could be made and maybe a place to be ablebto get food outbside and eat maybe like an outside kiosk.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I love going to the sports games at school but I believe that there should be more school spirit when at them!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I could not be happier that I chose to attend Rivier University. It is a very small school and it is great! The people that also attend are some of the smartest and nicest people you could meet!

Athletics: I personally am not a athlete, but sports are good here.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm currently a sophomore. The last year and a half I was a nursing major. All classes I took besides my nursing 101 course were great classes and taught by some great professors. The majority of professors really care about their students and are there and very available to help you. If you keep meeting with your professors and they know you're trying, they take that into consideration when it comes to grades. The Nursing Department used to be an amazing program. Since I have been here it has gone down hill. We were told all the way up until second semester Freshmen year that we would get our RN after our junior year, however they then told us that we're the first class for that not to happen too. A lot of students chose this program because of that reason. Nursing 101 this year had a lot of people fail out. It was split into two different classes. In my class over half the people failed out. Throughout the semester, people we continuously going to academic advisers and the director as well as the dean of nursing about all the issues in both classes, yet nothing was done. These two teachers are still teacher the same course next year. The nursing department here does not communicate to their students or their families any of the changes occurring. They also do not listen to students advocating for their own education. I'm currently a public health major and have not even finished the semester but can already tell that this is far better than nursing at Rivier.
