  • I am a current student here

    I love it at Riv. The friendly atmosphere is great! Yes, there are nuns on camps but don't worry they are extremely friendly and wish you a great day on passing (even if they don't even know you!). Our new president is phenomenal and there are a number of organizations you can get involved in and make a difference! It's all what you make it, and I am thoroughly loving being involved at Riv.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Everyone at Rivier is very friendly and accepting. The teachers are willing to go out of their way to help students. The campus is also structured better so that you don't have to walk at least a mile a day, like at some colleges. The college is even close to a lot of things, there is a mall and the beach only about an hour away.

    This school is not a party school. But everyone is very welcoming they like to meet new people and enjoy having fun. There is always some type of event going on, such as banquets, speakers, and cutural functions.

    There is always something going on, on campus. The Student Government Association hosts really neat events and activities for all resident and commuters (if they pay the activity fee) can participate in. The college is always willing to hear input for new activities and events to be held on campus. Also, there is a very low rate of resident that smoke, so the air as you walk around the quiet Nashua campus is clean and refreshing. The campus as a whole is extremely well kept, with a maintenance crew that is constantly out and about making sure that all residence halls and classrooms are functioning at their full potential.
