I am from a big city Memphis, Tn which is a lot different from Nashua, NH. The school academic wise is a wonderful place to be. The porfessors do a lot to make sure you understand the information. There is always someone to help whether it be a professor or a tutor. Socially, Rivier is not what I am used to, but it has its good and bad days. If you are looking for a party school this is not the place, but there are always some type of activty happening i.e a speaker, show, a dance, or banquet. Overall...

    Rivier University is a great school for students looking for a tight-knit academic community with professors who genuinely care about the students. The school is very small, and while that can seem restricting there are a lot of student activities and clubs on campus. The small size of the school creates a close relationship with the professors and allows for a more individualized approach to your education.

    Riv isn't that big of a school, which can be good and bad at times. You definitely get a chance to know everyone on campus which is awesome, and from personal experience, you get a chance to make a second family. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

    Rivier University is a small college campus that is manageable to get use to within a short amount of time. There are few old fashioned buildings on campus that show the history behind Rivier. The University accumulates many different kinds of people, some for sports, catholic history, master degrees, and a wide variety of majors.

    It is a great school over all. I am not very happy with the way they handle admissions, because they do not tell you important information unless you ask them about it. The online classes are too involved.

    The teachers really look out for you and your best interests - they want to help you specifically to become your best self and succeed. The campus is very nice, the library is amazing, the cafe is newly renevated and the chapel is soon to be renevated. But what stands out the most is the attitude of the teachers, who all want to help you help yourself.

    Rivier University is a great school for students looking to become nurses or educators. It is expensive, but the education that you receive is worth the price. The faculty want nothing more than for you to succeed.

    Rivier is a small close knit school where everyone feels comfortable and seems to know everyone. It is a small campus, but diverse, located in the middle of Nashua. At Rivier, the professors are helpful, and want to be apart of your future and help you succeed.

    River University will provide you with a well rounded education by introducing you to classes outside of your major. The professors are completely understanding and giving, as well as the staff. It is a small school, which allows you to be more then a number
