What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
Love this University because it caters to it's students as far as the advisers going out of their way to help in anyway they can. We have the best meal plan in the country due to the culinary that run the many choice on-campus restaurants. The Providence campus is built around the city and it's a great place to live and experience; while also allowing friendships with neighboring colleges.
