Connect With Us

We want to get to know you and for you to get to know us!  

We offer a variety of experiences to connect with our campus community and the Office of Admission. Our in-person and virtual offerings are dynamic and designed to provide our visitors with an in-depth look at the RWU experience and give you a sense of what it's like to be an RWU Hawk. We are adding experiences and sessions as we are able to, so please check back frequently, or contact us if you don’t see something that will work for you.

We want to make sure visitors are aware of any roadwork that may impact arrival/travel time. Check this page for Travel Notices.
