  • Events

At RWU, there are events on campus every single day -- from scholarly lectures and author readings to sporting events, movies and concerts. Fall and spring bring a farmers market in the middle of campus; Low Carbon Diet Day and Eat Local Challenge ask our students to make environmentally-friendly dining choices; Midnight Madness takes over in the fall, introducing our winter sports teams; movies in the field and bonfires take up fall nights; trips to Providence and Boston fill weekends; intramural sports allow students to get their competition on in pursuit of a championship shirt; and spring weekend is packed with events from block parties to big name concerts like Lupe Fiasco and O.A.R. There are opportunities for involvement in community service, clubs and orgs, athletics and many other groups on campus -- from honors societies to the radio station.
