Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful; and the staff/faculty is very helpful.

Overall Experience: My college experience thus far isn't an easy one to judge, since I am only going into my sophomore year. So far, I have concluded that my high school did not do a good job of preparing me for the full college experience; from classes to workload, I found myself stuck and at loss quite often during my first semester. I mainly chose my school due to the comfort factor: I mean, who wouldn't love a school right on the water? Growing up a water baby here on Long Island, I found that Roger Williams was he perfect school for me.

Overall Experience: Like with any college, you won't enjoy it if you don't get involved. Luckily there are so many opportunities to get involved. Deltasig and SOAR are my favorites.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I love my school. Everyone's really friendly and there are so many people there to help you.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Roger Williams is a nice school filled with some really nice people. The small class sizes are unbeatable, and undergraduate involvement in research and other opportunities is the best perk.

Off-Campus Housing: The houses are crappy and worn down, but that is perfect for a college student looking for a cheap house.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties can be fun for about an hour, until 1) the cops break it up, 2) they get too crowded, and 3) the people become drunk and rude.

Administration: They couldn't be any more inconsistent with their punishments. Never the same for students violating the same rules.

Campus Food: The variety is good. Not always good food though. Hit or miss in upper commons (which is the free part).

Scholarships: I received a scholarship to keep a certain GPA, which was helpful and not hard to maintain.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: This school over accepts students not considering that too many students will attend. In this case they run out of housing for students and have to cram three students into a room meant for two people. This is what happened to me and many of my friends. Also, the rooms meant to dorm two students are small as it is, so trying to fit three people into these rooms is not exactly the easiest thing to do.

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel safe on campus but I have heard stories and seen statistics on sexual assault. The guys at are school I think, believe they can take advantage of girl when they think she's intoxicated. I've been pursued when I was completely sober but the guy thought I was drunk. No, that's just my personality.

Athletics: The school provides very nice facilities for all sports and gym activities. Sports aren't a big deal at Roger. Most are under-recognized.

Off-Campus Housing: Almeida is pretty nice. It's spacious and public safety is less likely to show up as quickly as on-campus parties. However, it's pretty expensive compared.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: This is not a party school. Even though people still party, it's not the ideal party school. You're not going to have huge ragers on campus because they get shut down fairly quickly.

Off-Campus Dining: I've actually never been to an off-campus dining hall.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They are strict when it comes to consuming alcohol but grant medical amnesty if a friend calls public safety if you are too drunk and are in need of medical assistance. The incident does not go on your personal record if you qualify.

Scholarships: Financial aid is hard to acquire because of the strenuous application process. It requires multiple submissions of the same forms for it to be processed.

Campus Food: Better than some of the cafeterias I've been too. The school hired a catering service called bon appetite. The company does a very good job at supplying the students with a variety of good food that changes each week.

Campus Housing: As a science major assigned to a business living learning community, I had some issues with it. Even so, the dorms are spacious and relatively clean. The cost of living at the University is extremely expensive. I lived in Willow, which has a very aesthetically pleasing look. However, the freshman dorms Ceder and Maple are not great at all. The dorms don't have air conditioning, the walls are like paper, and the smoke alarms are extremely sensitive to the point where making popcorn will set them off. This school doesn't have the typical party scene so don't expect to be going to rangers every weekend.

Greek Life: We don't have a Greek life. We only have the business fraternity, which isn't allowed to be considered "Greek life."

Athletics: The teams all hate on each other and there isn't much support from the school. However, the fitness center itself is excellent and provides numerous options for those students who aren't on a varsity team, but wish to work out.

Off-Campus Housing: Some of the places are kinda sketchy, but a lot of the housing options in Bristol are beautiful and the cost is reasonable.
