DECISIONS 2012/2013

The Admission Office is busying reviewing student applications; reading essays, pouring over credentials, reading letters of recommendation while some of our faculty is reviewing portfolios for our Creative Writing, Architecture, Visual Arts, and Graphic Design Communication programs. Students who wish to be considered for our Dance program have come to RWU for their audition.  We continue to receive applications every day so if you are considering applying to RWU don’t hesitate, come for a visit, call and speak to a member of our staff, or visit our website at We offer tours at 9:00 and 12:30pm. There are a few exceptions so visit our campus tour site to register for a tour.

RWU students are presently taking their final exams while some have already begun their Christmas break. We will miss all of our students during this time especially many of our own Student Admission Assistants who will be going overseas to study this spring. They will be studying in Ireland, Spain, Australia, and Scotland etc.

So….at this time….The Admission staff wishes to extend to you and your families a wonderful holiday season. Stay safe and enjoy your time off from work and school. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013

Fall Updates

It was an exciting past 6 weeks for the RWU Admission team as we were busy traveling to different high schools and college fairs to meet prospective students! Now all of the members of our team are back in the office, we are excited to be busy reading the Early Action 1 applications and helping you –the prospective student- through the application process.

Early Action One or Two???

Early Action One or Two???

Hi everyone!

I am writing to you from the lovely area of Fairfield County, CT where I have been visiting high schools all week. This is one of my absolute favorite places to visit – the students are super nice, the guidance counselors are welcoming and there are about a million Panera’s (much love to Panera Bread for their Asian Chicken Sesame Salad which keeps me from going hungry!)

Anyway, I wanted to let you know the difference between our two Early Action application deadlines. I’ve been getting alot of questions regarding why would we have deadlines two weeks apart. Here’s the situation – if you can apply for Early Action One (by 11/1) we will send your decision by December 15. Alternatively, you can apply for Early Action Two (by 11/15) and we will send your decision by January 15. Now I’ve been working in Admissions at RWU for 5 years and I can promise you that as soon as you hit send on the Common App you are going to want to know your decision. Knowing around December 15 gives you and your family more time to think it over as deposits aren’t due til May 1. Also, it is not binding to apply early action meaning you do not need to commit to RWU.

If you have any questions at all, big or small, we are here for you. Most of us counselors are hitting the road hard visiting high schools around the world but you can email us at or call into the office at 401-254-3500. My email is if you want to ask me something – I love to help!

Best of luck with your college application process!!! Remember by this time next year you will be happily settled into your new home :) We hope it’s RWU!
