    URI is a fantastic school. The campus is just the right size, not too overwhelmingly large and not cramped. The diversity and extracurricular activities always keep you engaged while on campus.

    The University of Rhode Island has a great atmosphere, and makes a person feel at home. Being a student who has lived on campus for three years I enjoy walking on campus and looking at the trees, the different buildings, and being able to smell the roses.

    I transferred to URI from St. Lawrence. The schools are polar opposites and I have realized what a mistake I made in my choice of schools for my freshman year. I love URI an all the people. I am on a sports team and I enjoy the company of all my teammates. I love that everything is so close and the ocean is minutes away. The campus is small enough to walk around but large enough that you see new people all the time. It is a great atmosphere and people are so nice.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I'm excited to get to the campus and experiance all of the clubs and activities URI has to offer, and there seems to be a huge selection. Also there are many guest apparences which included comedians and concerts. I'm a little worried about getting around the town on weekends without a car but there is a bus schedule that will have to do. My room is a suite so i will be sharing a bathroom with 5 other girls...there's both advantages and disadvantages. But i feel quite lucky because there is only about three dorms that are suite style on campus.
