I truly feel that particular offices (e.g. Diversity & Inclusion, Student Affairs) are very welcoming, really make an effort to host inclusive and thought-provoking activities/events, and genuinely care about students' well-being.

The community of like-minded students at RFUMS are what make the school great in my mind. The students here always seem to be willing to offer a helping by hand if you need it.

There are many activities to be involved in such as intramural sports, organizations, and fitness classes.

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 2017 Student Satisfaction Survey. The results will also show you the change in question responses since our last administration of the survey in 2015. In 2017, 1,000 students (51%) completed the survey responding to questions related to 87 aspects of our campus environment:

  • Overall Campus Environment
    • Facilities
    • Safety
  • Educational Experience
    • Faculty Advisors/Mentors
    • Faculty
    • Quality of Education
    • Interprofessionalism
  • Academic Resources
    • Library Resources
    • Technology
  • Student Services
    • Academic and Retention Services
    • Career Services
    • Food Service
    • Student Activities and Engagement
    • Fitness and Recreation
    • Student Counseling
    • Student Health Center
    • Student Financial Services

Our students reported satisfaction in 74 (83%) of the questions surveyed: 

  • 96% of our students reported having a comprehensive understanding of interprofessionalism.    
  • 9 out of 10 students reported that there is a commitment to academic excellence on campus.
  • 9 out of 10 students are highly satisfied with our student organizations, activities, and intramural sports programs and 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 2018. 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 –

All of the fun and festive activities that happen around campus and how they promote relaxation, inclusion, and networking.

I have been so impressed with the diversity of the student body and find it to be so beneficial to be surrounded by all types of people who are different from me. It allows for such a diverse perspective that I think will continue to influence my thoughts and beliefs for the rest of my life.
