3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class size is relatively small unless it's the gen-ed classes then there is about 60 students in it. Classes especially nursing can be difficult.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Freshman year people come in and show you how to set up a resume and use the career center online portal to find a job.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are just okay. They are your typical dorms. There's really only two choices for sophomores for housing and its finding a group to live with in Washington or live off campus at yorktown. Junior and senior year you can live in the apartments on campus if you can get one with the right amount of credits.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: RMU has 4 sororities and about 6 fraternities. A lot of students do join greek life and love it!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our football team hasn't been doing well the past few years, so students only come to the first game of the season, homecoming, and senior night. Most of the students come to the Men's Basketball games because they tend to do very well. This year the women's basketball team won their division (NEC) and went on to play in the NCAA playoffs!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school has both positive and negative aspects about it. It's a small community with friendly students!

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of campus life and it definitely has allowed a lot of lost students to find their "home."

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If I had to do it all over again, I definitely think I would choose Robert Morris University again. I love the "home-y" feel of the entire college and the campus is absolutely beautiful. I am an active member of the RMU Show Band and RMU Pep Band and I just recently applied to be a Colonial Ambassador. I am truly happy with my decision.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: With my personal experience and from what I have heard, the campus police have a great presence on campus. This could be a very good thing, preventing students from harming themselves or others, but I also have a feeling that police have made it hard for some people to enjoy the college experience. A lot of people I know, including myself, hole myself up in my room in night instead of enjoying ourselves across campus. The campus is relatively quiet, but I am grateful for having the campus police number on hand.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class sizes are generally smaller, so professors learn students names and generally care about their students. For the most part, I have had professors who truly care how their students due, with a few exceptions. Some professors are there to teach and some are just there to supervise the students teaching themselves. The professors use the amenities of the classrooms to the best they can. Some classrooms are somewhat outdated, but most are modern and updated.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is the career fairs and various career-centered opportunities for the students to attend. There are constantly speakers in classrooms and sessions for students to attend that promote the career help that the school offers to students. Professors speak about their connections and possible internships/work that fit in with their students field of interest.

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms on campus make it very easy to get to class due to the proximity. Although, if you want the good amenities in the Yorktown dorms, then you are far from the main campus and makes it harder to get to class. But the shuttles that run between the off-campus dorms is a great privilege to have. In my dorm experience, cliques were formed and I do not know much about the girls who live on my floor. I do not know whether that was my fault or just happened by chance, but eventually everyone went their separate ways. I believe the room/board is a couple thousand more expensive than it should be and if we are going to pay that much then some work needs to be done. The housing process is relatively easy, but there are some confusing aspects. Such as when applying for a conjoined room or a suite, the process is harder to complete.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is definitely Greeks who throw the parties, but at this school there is constantly events and fundraisers that the Greeks run for charities. I am impressed with how, for the most part, Greek life is not extremely clique-y. I have met a lot of Greeks that can have friends and be friendly outside their fraternities or sororities. There are those critiques of the Greeks, but most non-Greeks I know are indifferent. A lot of people judged for "paying for friends" because they joined a fraternity or sorority.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As with any school, it depends on the student whether or not the school is fitting. Personally, I believe my school offers great opportunities and is working on achieving greater goals. I am a freshman so I am still attempting to find exactly where I belong in my school. I have witnessed that for some this school is perfect for their future career goals, as well as, their interests and hobbies. For others, going to college is not in their interest. My school is gradually improving as best as it can and I am excited to grow with the school. I feel as though my school can cater to my goals in the business career sector and will hopefully prepare me for the future. My only real complaint is the price for tuition and room/board. However, I knowingly chose a private school for its' accreditations and business opportunities. I can only apply for scholarships and continue my education here in order to achieve my dream job in the Hospitality industry.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
