What Students Are Saying
Small class sizes with professors and advisers always willing to help.
Challenging academics that fully prepare you for your career.
I was impressed with the positiveness from students, professor and alumni I spoke to at touring, Student Acceptance Day, and orientation. I also liked the fact that the student-to-professor ratio is small and that they professors were approachable and that there are resources available at the college for you. The college wants you to succeed.
There is a positive feeling and a sense of accomplishment at Rivier and this is important to me.
