            Amazing Education

            I graduated from RIC in 1995 with a BA in Biology. This degree was the foundation for my beautiful future. I went on to study at The NewEngland College of Optometry in Boston and received my Doctor of Optometry degree in 1999. RIC is a wonderful college and I would highly recommend it to any aspiring student.

            RIC Experience

            Went as an older student (25 years old) full time and always felt that the faculty and staff had so much to offer. Also worked on campus (library) and have some treasured memories from that as well. Never got over the "tucked away on a hill" feel of the campus. Cozy and quiet, you would never guess the city was minutes away.
