Robert Morris University is a great school. I went to private school all of my life so I loved the amount of students that are on campus. It's not too small and definitely not too big. The campus itself is beautiful and in a location close enough to the city, but far enough away to be able to get fresh air. The unity of the student body is overwhelming and everyone, no matter their background, can find their place here. There are so many fun and free events on campus occurring almost every day it seems. You never get bored, and can always find a friendly face or meet a new person. If I could go through choosing a college to attend all over again, I wouldn't do anything differently. Robert Morris is my home. I am a proud Colonial!

Personally I feel like the Greek life on campus is great! I am not involved myself, but many people throughout campus are, and they are very passionate about their sorority/fraternity. For the most part, non-Greeks on campus respect Greek life and do not think of them very different. Housing for Greek life at RMU is not like the houses you see on tv. Usually a sorority will get an apartment together in the towers, an apartment option on campus. They do not own a building for themselves, but they often have a floor filled with members of their sorority. Overall, I support Greek life on campus and the accomplishments they achieve for the things they support.

Robert Morris is the perfect school for someone who wants the "small town" experience. The small class sizes and approachable professors make getting academic help easy. The campus is hilly but has a beautiful landscape, which makes walking to class enjoyable. The "small town" feel helps students create friendships that will last a lifetime. Robert Morris also has competitive D1 men and women's sport teams that are enjoyable to watch. Campus is just 15 minutes from the Pittsburgh International Airport and 30 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh. Students also have the luxury of several shopping malls all within a 30 minute drive. If you want a college that feels like home then RMU is the school for you.
