What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
The Architecture school is amazing and probably one of the best, if not the best program at the school. The campus is beautiful and is well maintained. However some of the people at school are stuck up but there are plenty of nice, normal people.

RWU is a fantastic school that thrives on building a student's academic performance. The staff and professors genuinely care about their students and will help them reach their life goals. It is truly a great place to learn.
