    Interviews with RWU Alumni

    The Office of Admission is excited to offer personalized meetings with RWU alumni! This is your chance to connect with a former Hawk and have your questions answered by someone who experienced life at RWU.

    Informational Interviews: For if you have not yet applied or are still waiting for your admission decision. During these virtual sessions, we’ll discuss your interests, academic journey, and future plans. The benefit of speaking with RWU alumni is that you will be able to ask questions to learn about student life on campus and hear about the experiential learning opportunities that have helped them succeed beyond their time at RWU. Interviews are completely optional and not required for admission to RWU, but it can be a great chance for our admission team to learn more about you!
    Roger Chats: *For admitted students (future hawks!) only* These virtual sessions will be an excellent opportunity to connect with recent alumni to discuss your interests and ask questions. Our alumni are excited to get to learn more about you and to share why they decided to attend RWU, highlights of their experience, and advice for you as you get started on your college journey. 

    Please browse through the list of available alumni to find the person that best fits your interests. Explore our profile pages to learn more about their involvements at RWU and upcoming availability.
