“The wide variety of fitness classes offered give me something to look forward to during study breaks”

“I love being a part of such a diverse community not just among people of different background but with people in different health professional fields. I have learned so much about the future of health care but it has also broadened my exposure to different cultures”
“My favorite part about being a student is the amount of extracurricular activities we have, which allows for expression of creativity in an educational world that does not always foster it”

Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science is committed to providing a student centered campus environment. Every two years we survey our students for feedback to ensure we are providing appropriate resources and services to promote student success and satisfaction on campus.

RFUMS students are overwhelmingly positive about the campus environment. Eight out of ten students would choose RFUMS again if they could.

The findings provided on this website are from the 2015 Student Satisfaction Survey. The results will also show you the change in question responses since our last administration of the survey in 2013.

         feel the academic support services on campus meet their needs.

Overwhelmingly (99%), our students’ report feeling safe on campus.

We appreciate our students’ feedback. There were 11 questions that received lower satisfaction. We are already exploring improvements to campus which address many of those concerns and hope to have a full plan to share by March 2016. We appreciate the feedback of our students and use their feedback to continuously improve the student environment on campus. In fact – one of our students said it best on the survey –   There have been great additions for students in the last year and a half that I’ve been here such as the gym, fitness room, and tv room.  Also the new computer lab is very nice and another great spot to study in.  The first time I came to campus was for my interview and I immediately like the campus then.  How I like the campus even more because of all the things that have been changed and added for us students”
