The Transfer Student Experience

Mikayla Barnwell"With such an easy transfer process, transitioning to Roger Williams was everything I could have hoped for and more. I fell in love with the town of Bristol, embraced the small community atmosphere, joined the rowing team, and was even able to study abroad in Bermuda!"
