After Roger Williams University
- Very Good317
This is an amazing, well rounded, beautiful university. The academic diversity is outstanding with so many different majors to choose from. The staff and professors genuinely care about the students at Roger Williams, they will go out of their way to help you and to see you succeed. Even the dining staff goes above and beyond for their students, they make the RWU experience worthwhile. I really love this school. I wanted to go to a huge college, with a football team and greek life, however, after attending Roger Williams I am thankful I chose here. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love the friends I've met here, everyone is so nice and funny. I have so much fun on the weekends at parties (some are better than others- you have to find the good ones). I would recommend RWU to anyone and everyone that cares about their academics and also wants to have a good time!

Engineering! Everyone is very supportive in the School of Engineering. Even my others professors (Calc, Physics, Writing) always ask what majors everyone is to make sure I know what I need to for engineering. The workload is more than other majors but that is expected. The curriculum is strong and efficient. I like the curriculum a lot so far! The engineering building has a lot of amazing equipment and resources available. The internship and job opportunities are abundant because engineers have a specific career advisor, different than other majors, who deals directly with engineers and engineering internship and jobs. Just make sure you are communicating with and seeking the career advisor out, they will not come to you first if you don't show an interest.

On Wednesdays and Thursdays most people on to the clubs/bars. On Friday and Saturday most people go to parties on and off campus. The best and biggest parties are definitely off campus, but other good parties are at bayside, almeida and new res! I suggest getting a fake id. Also, younger boys sometimes have trouble getting into big parties but thats at every school, so if you want to go I suggest bringing a couple girls! Also, don't show up to parties with 10+ people, it is obnoxious
