Life at University

There’s more to life than class.

You’re not just choosing a school — you’re choosing a home. On RIU’s beautiful campus you’ll find a diverse, welcoming community of students and faculty, plus opportunities to learn, lead, explore and give back, not to mention have fun. And you don’t have to live on campus to enjoy a host of activities and special events (but spoiler: you may not want to leave once you’re here).
