What Students Are Saying

3.17 Average Rating
Rhode Island College is a college which offers a wide-variety of majors. The campuses are very easy to navigate around. The OASIS Department is very helpful in picking your classes.
Joshua from Smithfield, RI
Like most places, there are positives and negatives; there are great professors and not-so-great ones. RIC is the least expensive option if you are looking to pursue a Bachelor's in Nursing in Rhode Island and southeastern MA. And like anywhere else, your experience largely depends on your commitment, goals, and willingness to work hard.
