So Why RWU?

Well, we can think of lots of reasons. We’re sure that if you asked around, each one of our students, faculty and staff members would have their own reasons too. But, that seems like a lot of investigative research on your end, so here’s a summary of what we’d consider the high points:

45+ Programs of Study: With programs in the liberal arts and professional fields of study, you’ll be well equipped with the skills employers say they’re looking for.

Affordable Excellence: Tuition frozen at the 2012-2013 rate and guaranteed for all four years of your undergraduate education.

The Community Partnerships Center: The Community Partnerships Center offers students the opportunity for hands-on projects in local and regional communities.

The Center for Student Academic Success: A central hub for academic resources, CSAS services include peer mentorship, tutoring and academic advising.

First Year Experience: We’ve got the support system in place to ensure your successful transition to college.

Integrated Career Services: You’ll have access to our experienced career counselors as soon as you set foot on campus. And, with innovative options like our Financed Individualized Training Program (FIT), building your résumé and your skill set will be a breeze.

State of the Art Technology: Thanks to a partnership with Samsung, RWU is one of the only school in the country to offer cloud-based computing.

Study Abroad: Sure, plenty of colleges have study abroad programs, but at RWU, our students are more than tourists when they travel.

And finally, in a word—attention.

Small class sizes, personal interaction with professors and opportunities for student/faculty research at the undergraduate level are the hallmarks of a Roger Williams University education. Our students are recognized as unique individuals with great ideas to contribute, and they’re never lost in the crowd. Our faculty members will know you, because they (not teaching assistants) will be in the classroom alongside you each day.

We are Roger Williams. Are you?
