    Consider all aspects of the school. Yes, it has a beautiful campus right on the water--but, it's difficult to get anywhere without a car, which freshmen aren't allowed. If you want a party school, you can find better ones elsewhere. You have to know someone to even get into a party, and if they are on-campus parties, the RAs are very persistent at making sure no underage students are drinking. They crack down pretty hard when they hear noise coming from any of the party dorms. Academically, it is better than its reputation. I am a business student, and have expanded my network through events put on by RWU. I have an internship for next semester as a sophomore, which I wouldn't have been able to get at another school. There are a lot of ups here, but also a lot of downs. Consider everything.

    Do not skip class because you will fall behind in your studies. Take advantage of your professors office hours and review sessions. Use RWU's facilities to your advantage.
