    Sure, the state of Rhode Island can be quite boring sometimes. It's a small state and there isn't much you can do. However, while attending Rhode Island School of Design, you're usually too caught up with studio work and liberal arts homework, that you usually don't get the time to do anything else. Yeah, I guess that sounds somewhat bad, but if you enjoy art then it really shouldn't matter. You meet many new friends that will have similar interests as you, even some from Brown University! The food is quite delicious since students from Johnson & Wales come to help serve it up. You're also not too far from Boston and can even take a bus to New York time to time. But besides all those, if you enjoy creating art, experimenting and challenging yourself, you will definitely enjoy attending this school.
