So far my experience at Salve Regina has been amazing. I've loved getting to know the other nursing students and having a nursing advisor. My school hosts a lot of community service activities and has a lot of clubs, which make the school great and the people are really outgoing and care for the community. My school is beautiful, and is unique because we live in and around some of the Newport mansions, and are just a few feet away from the ocean! I would stick with my school if I were to choose again, because I always have fun, have made life long friends, and am confident in becoming a nurse straight from graduating.

My school is absolutely beautiful, the location speaks for itself. The worst part is the amount of stuck up rich kids there is .

I am an upcoming junior attending Salve and so far it has been a great experience. Aside from a little home sickness freshman year, Salve has encouraged me to grow as a person academically and mentally. I have met some of the best people I have ever met in my entire life in the two short years I have attended Salve Regina. There are a multitude of options for students that are struggling in a particular class and always someone willing to help. Aside from this, Newport is a great place to live. There is always something to do and many ways to get involved with the community. It is also cool meeting people from all over the world not only from Salve, but because of the many tourists that visit Newport. There are also many opportunities for employment. Many businesses are always looking for hardworking college students. I myself, work at Flo's Clam Shack in Middletown and absolutely love it. Salve is an amazing school and I would highly recommend it to students who are willing to work hard, want a small school and strive for success.
