We want to get to know you and for you to get to know us, so we are offering a variety of virtual visit experiences. Join us virtually to see campus and to hear from staff, faculty and RWU students about their experiences. Have questions? Text us Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST at 401-479-0268 or 401-479-0790.
During these virtual sessions (beginning the week of January 18), we’ll discuss your interests, academic journey, and future plans. The benefit of speaking with an RWU alumni is that you will be able to ask questions to learn about student life on campus and hear about the experiential learning opportunities that have helped them succeed beyond their time at RWU. Interviews are completely optional and they are informational - so, if you choose not to schedule one it will never negatively impact your chances for admission.
