What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
The courses are not too easy or too strenuous, and the teachers I have had are helpful but do not baby their students by any stretch. The campus is beautiful and easy to navigate, and the residence halls and campus facilities are great. Overall, I love RMU.
Frankie from Washington, PA
Robert Morris University lives up to what it claims to be. It is business school and is all about it's business of turning out successful graduates. The Career Center will place you in a position that will make full use of your skills and talents.
Kareem from Mckeesport, PA
RMU has provided me with everything possible to be successful in both academics as well as life in general. The faculty are so passionate about teaching and every class I have taken has been enjoyable. I look forward to every day there and will be sad to leave after I graduate!
Kaitlynn from Bridgeville, PA
RMU is an excellent, medium-sized school that is constantly growing and improving. The University really cares about its students, and wants to listen to your feedback. While it does have a handful of commuters, there are always opportunities to make friends and participate in activities.
Melissa from King Of Prussia, PA
