The classes I have taken at URI have all helped me learn a lot. They are not time-filler classes that are there just for you to get a grade. You will come out of every class being much more educated on that topic.

    From my experience at the University of Rhode Island so far I have noticed a strong will for making yourself and others around you successful. Not only are the students great, there are many professors and staff that are always willing to help you when asked to. Another thing that I enjoy is the diversity, this school has all kinds of students all over the world that attend here.

    This school is lovely! Many of the building are brand new and have several new technologies (not to mention environmentally friendly). The staff here are extremely friendly and very helpful!

    We visited the campus for a guided tour and informational session in early Aug. Absolutely loved it and it is now the top choice on my college list.

    In my first year at URI I overall had a great time. It took me a semester to adjust living so far away from home but I met some wonderful people.

    Beautiful and well located campus with extremely friendly people. Mass number of events, clubs, sports and organizations to keep people interested and interactive around campus. Extremely impressive international engineering program for future engineers who hope to study abroad and get hands on experience.

    I love how the stairs in the Biotechnology college is designed to look like DNA. Also URI offers a dual major program where engineers can pick a language to major in as well and in their fourth get to travel to a different country!

    URI is situated in a beautiful coastal town, just a 5 minute drive away from the beach. Within walking distance of the campus is a train station with trains to New York City, Boston, and many other locations for a fun weekend outing. The wide campus encompasses the beauty of the country while still providing access to urban sources of entertainment.
