A small college on a campus comprised of historical buildings, Rhode Island College is a traditional New England school. It is also a school that in recent years has grown and expanded in recent years.
In addition to the physical expansion of its campus, Rhode Island College has also grown in its population, attracting an ever-growing student body.
Much of the attraction is the location, being that it’s in a quiet, scenic area of Providence, but still only minutes from the exciting downtown.
The academics are also a source of attraction. That is, in addition to receiving high-ranks from numerous publications, Rhode Island College offers programs of study that encompass the creative and liberal arts and practical professional fields.

Tuition for state residents is almost half of what it is for out-of-state residents. Many students also receive financial aid, which is usually a combined package consisting of loans, grants, work-study and sometimes scholarships.
100% of students gave Rhode Island College 3 stars overall.
This college is very community orientated they are active in the community. Academically you are encouraged to volunteer and go on to do a masters if you want to. So far I have made friends and had the support I needed from the faculty. I encourage prospective students to visit this college as it is economic not as expensive as other colleges. The college is within the city of Providence and is very diverse as part of Rhode Island. In the spring and summer you can take advantage of the ocean with the many sporting activities, in the winter there are opportunities to ski or/ and snowboard. Its definitely a young college but I am in my forties and I definitely don't feel out of place. As they say college is what you make it.
