RWU is a leading independent, coeducational university with 40+ majors and even more minors to choose from in liberal arts or professional programs; where you can choose your course of study or create it.
Personal attention is guaranteed, and professors (never TA’s) teach all courses—even the intros. Our student-to-faculty ratio is 14:1 and our class size averages just 19 students; so when we say personal attention we mean it.
Our goal is to prepare you for life after college, whether for employment or graduate study, and thanks to a collaborative relationship between our Community Partnerships Center (CPC), the Feinstein Center for Service Learning and Community Engagement, and our Career Center– we’re better than ever. Students work on real-world projects to benefit local communities, earn credit for doing good and doing well, and take internships around the country and the world.
Speaking of around the world– the University encourages all students to study abroad. Whether it’s for a year, a semester, a summer session or even a mini-mester, RWU students study on every continent but Antarctica!

With more than 70 clubs and organizations and 22 varsity athletics teams, RWU has opportunities for your every interest.
