Feel free to talk to students on campus and the tour guides, they genuinely love to tell you about the school and their experiences. And get to know the admissions people as well, they can be really helpful when you're applying or looking for financial aid help!

Some tips for you prospective students:
- do ALL of your homework
- get to know your professors, they seem to be more helpful when they know you are intrigued and care about their class
- sit in the front row of your classes, that way you know you will always pay attention if the professor is watching you

College is something that I think everyone should have the chance to endure. Everyone will go through their own experience and learn many lessons that will help throughout life. Tips that I could give to prospective students is to not be afraid of college. It is a long journey that will lead to your ultimate destination, and your happiness. It is very important that when you get to college you be yourself, and do not be afraid to meet new people. You have to understand that everyone is going through the same thing as you, but it is simply the way that you handle it that will make it that much easier for you. A very important fact that everyone should consider and act upon, is getting involved. Get involved in some things, or get involved in everything. Trust me, I didn't believe this at first, but if you get involved you be so glad that you did. There are so many rewarding experiences waiting for you, so take them on with a smile on your face and determination in your soul. College is the last step before you are truly on your own, so use your head and follow your heart.

If you are unsure about Roger Williams and haven't been there, just visit the campus; that's how most students fall in love with the school. Though, you have to keep in mind that it offers much more than just a beautiful sight, but also great teachers, amazing food, and comfortable living space. If you have visited Roger Williams and you still aren't sure, talk to the staff, the teachers, or even the students. They will all tell you how much they love it there.
Jessica from North Attleboro, MA
Apply here, come visit and you will see the magic this school has to offer. Once you get in and decide to come here the best thing to do is get involved. There are so many clubs. From Newspaper, to Psychology club, to the chair rearranging club. There is never nothing to do and the best way to meet people is to get involved in anything and everything. You will fall in love with this school the minute you drive through the entrance.
Jaclyn from Mount Sinai, NY
Prospective students should arrive with an open mind and a willingness to learn.
