I was accepted to Roger Williams University. I visited the school and liked it a lot. The Marine Biology department is awesome. I applied there because it is one of a few schools that offer Marine Biology as a major. The school is not too big or too small. It sits on the shores of the Bay. The town is quaint, a short distance from school, lots of walking, bike riding and sailing. There are hardly any minorities of any kind at the school and in the town of Bristol. The school is still neat though because the facilities are modern, food is good and you can travel all over Rhode Island on the bus free of charge.
