Spend more, expect less

The Rhode Island College mission and vision statement prides itself on advertising the college as a higher education program that provides flexibility for its diverse student population. In lesser words, this sums up to cheap tuition and a good education. What more could a student ask for?

I committed to RIC as a transfer my sophomore year and was extremely attracted to the quality of the opportunities presented by the college for the seemingly low cost of attendance. However, since the start of my education here, I have only noticed an increase in my tuition and a decrease in professional opportunities.
