What Students Are Saying

3.17 Average Rating
Always get a tutor if you need help. The tutors here are experts. They know so much. You'll be amazed by the results.

Stay connected with the professors. Being connected with the professors are very helpful. Professors here are avaliable 24/7. Sometimes they're willing to meet with you for lunch. How cool is that.

Never procrastinate exams, homework, projects, class work, or quizzes. Here eveyrthing is taken seriously. Fun and games have their own time. The professors here are professionals with Masters, Phd degrees, which means they mean business.

Do your best not to arrive class late. Lateness has their consequences here.

Get involved as much as possible on campus. When you get involved in activities on campus it helps you with communication skills, leadership skills, overcoming the fear of shyness ( in front of a crowd), meet other students who share similar interest.

Have a goal. By having a goal the school helps you work your way up the ladder. By doing so, you must always have a planner with you. The planner helps you to get things done in a orderly fashion and also saves youself from going out of control.

Have fun and be yourself.

Always check out different events! Great way to meet new people and learn about their experiences with college. Also if try to avoid 8ams if you're not a morning person. Most freshman come in thinking that because they could do it in high school they can do it here but that is not the case. Most people I've talked to about this always regret taking them.

Don't expect this to be some huge college, its a very close knit school where you know everyone even if you do commute.
Jessie from Cranston, RI
Focus, focus, focus. If you want to succeed, then do your best!
Work hard to get your gpa up the first year of school. If you start out with a bad gpa, its extremely hard to get it to where you want it to be.
Lindsey from Lincoln, RI
Just get in there, get your degree and be gone. There isn't much to do when comparing it to a larger university. It's a small campus. Make the best of it.
Colleo from Providence, RI
Initially I started a school in New York and found that the distance and price was just not worth the adventure. You have your whole life to scout the world, but college is a difficult transition enough without having to worry about money and being homesick.
Adilson from Pawtucket, RI
Begin meeting with guidance counselors early in high school to discuss possible majors and career choices. This will help you decide if Rhode Island College could be a good school for you. Also, applying for financial aid and scholarships early is important if you need it because the deadlines go by quickly.
Chloe from Warwick, RI
If you're interested in attending Rhode Island college, I suggest you first visit the website, www.ric.edu. Any question you may have will be answered on there. And, if it piques your interest, you might want to schedule a tour and visit the campus.
