Contact a Student Ambassador

Meet RWU Law’s featured Student Ambassadors. Our Student Ambassadors are a group of current students who generously volunteer with the Office of Admissions. Ambassadors give on-campus tours to prospective students, assist with info sessions and accepted students events, attend off-campus recruiting events, and chat with prospective students about RWU Law and their experiences here. Feel free to contact a Student Ambassador with questions you may have about the RWU Law community and student experience.

If you prefer to speak with an Admissions Counselor, e-mail or call 401-254-4555 for the Office of Admissions.
