2 College Junior

Overall Experience: As a Biomedical Engineering student, I feel that the program I am in does not get much attention, and I feel that there are many things that the school does not tell us or prepare us for. For example, almost any further education or career after graduation will require biology credits; RMU's BME program does not even require biology. The program is very heavily engineering-based, and not medically-based. Additionally, there are many scholarships and other opportunities that I've learned the school does not make known to its students. I feel that the school does not care about it's BME program, it does not prepare BME students for the professional world, and the program needs more faculty that have experience in the field.

Overall, I feel that the cost of the tuition, plus housing fees, required dining fees, and other fees is entirely too high for the education I am getting.

However, if I were a business major and joined a sports team or fraternity/sorority, I believe my experience at RMU would be better. It has a great reputation for its business program, although the cost is very high compared to other schools with the same programs. The size of the school is also nice; it is easy to get to know and talk to the professors to get any help you may need.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot people who move into houses in Coropolis which isnt the best place, but there are tons of appartments pretty close to campus that are safe and typically inexpensive

Party Scene: There are definitely parties going on all the time but you have to be able to find them, otherwise it can seem pretty dull.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of restaurants give student discounts. The college gives out coupons to several places.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The police are pretty strict when it comes to vehicles and give out a lot of tickets. And they typically bust really loud parties.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Wheatley is definitely the best place to get food, its made to order and is most often the best value! [Two grilled cheese sandwiches and soup for $4!!]

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: With work/study I know people had issues with on campus employers responding back to their applications; but if you go to the locations and as for jobs the process goes more smoothly.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great. All the dorms are close enough to classes that it isn't too long of a walk. Sometimes the facility workers get understaffed so there were a few days that the traditional dorms didn't get cleaned.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Not bad but i feel like it could use some more security in some places

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Me and some friends considered it, but thought it better not to

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not much but if you know the right people it can be the best

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are subway's, giant eagle, some Chinese restaurant and there is some pizza places. My personal favorite is Pizza Roma's

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Depending on the day it could be good other than that just go to romo's and get a sandwich and chips or something

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: the school gives an scholarship depending on your high school grades and family income and that helps other than that the school personally doesn't give any out i don't believe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The campus housing is okay. The best place to live so far is the Yorktown dorm, other than the fact that it is farther from the school. Everyone kind of does their own thing so if you don't make friends then you wont do much, but the school offers a lot of clubs and stuff like that so its pretty simple to do that.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off-campus so I can not really answer this.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places that people can go and eat at. I normally get food at the giant eagle and make my own dinners.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I do not attend parties. I am more focused on my school work.

3 College Junior

Administration: The police are very protective. They do over ticket people for parking.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It was not very difficult at all to receive financial aid. The process is simple and if people have any questions there are always counselors people can call.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The dining halls are okay, there are difficulties with seating in some cases. The menus are always very diverse, having an illness makes it a little more difficult when choosing foods. The best place to eat is Wheatley Cafe, they have amazing food choices for lunch.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been very exciting. The best place to live on campus are the apartments. They have a nice kitchen area and a nice personal bathroom. The housing process is very easy, to live in the apartments you must have a certain amount of credits. The apartments are pricy, that is the only downfall of living in the apartments.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There is a lot of room for improvement.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The scholarships help a lot, need more though.

RMU goes above and beyond to prepare students for future careers, with career fairs, career expos, and the never-ending help from the Career Center. RMU’s ColonialTRAK is also incredibly helpful, and even after graduating, students are allowed to use it, just as they are allowed to use the Career Center. RMU has very high placement rates for alumni (94 percent for undergraduates). And the RMU Web site states that “one of the ultimate outcomes for an institution like RMU, whose curriculum is centered upon applied knowledge, is the willingness of employers to hire its graduates.”

RMU has about 5,000 students, so it's not a huge campus, but a good enough size to meet plenty of people and have a good time. It’s not overwhelming, but it’s also not underwhelming. The amount of time professors take with helping students is a huge advantage. There is personal attention that comes along with the 16-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio. Classes are not lecture halls; they are interactive and group discussions are always encouraged. Overall, when asked, the majority of students like most everything about RMU, though they would change a few things here and there. The major complaint is that there isn't enough to do on campus, which can take a toll on the social aspect of the school. Regardless, on the whole, RMU is a great school with great professors and atmosphere. As the campus continues to grow, so do the opportunities for the students.
