What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a beautiful, historic school with a splendid Agricultural base. The facilities are plentiful, and the aesthetics are pleasing. Political opinions sometimes leak into the classrooms, and the on-campus housing is atrocious (uncompleted renovations) but most students seem happy and I a glad and blessed to be here pursuing my English degree. The college offers plenty of programs and just the one I was looking for. The Honors program is a breeze to get into, and there are police and buses readily available. The surrounding area is lovely, with the Narragansett beach being about fifteen minutes away. I chose this college because it is close to my home. Some of the dining options are expensive and lack-lister, and you have to pay for printing, but the staff and professors try their best. I would recommend this University. I was nervous at first about classroom sizes and competitive curriculum, but the professors understand that you have a life outside of the classroom and other work to do. The student who rent off-campus are quite rowdy in my neighborhood, but there are policies being implemented. All in all, I am safe and happy and enjoying the pursuit of my education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It becomes your home. As simple as that. The people, turn into friends, and then turn into family. The professors are hands down the most supportive when it comes to helping you in anything you need. Campus life is so much fun and it's a beautiful scenery, from bricked buildings to glass window modern built buildings. URI is where you belong, come and be a ram! Go Rhody Rhody rhody, rams, rams, rams!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cool that it's near the ocean and can easily go to the beach. The campus is kind of isolated from shopping. Even Walmart is a good drive away. Most of the students are friendly and it was easy to make friends my first year. Academics are good. Engineering is challenging, as expected, and there are people available in the living/learning communities to help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school. It definitely is a good fit for me even though it's not perfect for everyone. I met amazing friends and classmates and even though the dorms and food aren't amazing its a good school and I love the environment I'm in. The professors are pretty great and accessible and theres plenty to do on and off campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school; if you really want to be involved, the opportunity is there. However, if you don't want to be so involved, that's fine too. A lot of people bond over classes. I was worried about how big Greek culture would be. It's huge if you're in it, but pretty avoidable if you're not. Overall a really good school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have only finished my first year at University of Rhode Island and I can say that I am proud that I chose to become a RHODY RAM! I met amazing people and created lifelong friendships, there's always something for somebody whether its the gym or the theater or an organization. The food can always be better. Professors are amazing, they want to be involved and be available for students if they need help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a pharmacy student, the University of Rhode Island was a perfect fit for me! It offers a 2+4 program; meaning you complete two years of undergraduate studies and are guaranteed direct entry into the graduate school of pharmacy (as long as you maintained a 3.0 GPA). Most schools do not offer this so if you are looking to major in pharmacy I would definitely recommend looking into this school. As for food and housing, improvements could be made; the dorms are very small compared to most schools and majority are triples. I overall feel safe at the school, I have walked alone with no problem. Classes are a good size; I enroll in a lot of honors courses to guarantee a small class size (you do not have to be an honors student to enroll in honors classes). There is always something to do around and slightly off campus which keeps me busy. The school is a bit pricey being out of state so definitely look into costs if you are out of state and thinking of going here. Overall, I have had a great experience at the University of Rhode Island!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Rhode Island is not a bad school. Visually it is very nice. The majority of the buildings are well kept and fit the setting. The school also provides a very good outdoor setting that many and all students can enjoy and relax in such as the Quad where many students like to sit and either relax with friends or do work. It provides access to food and indoor areas as well such as the rams den or the library where one can sit and do work. The staff is very nice as well. All of the teachers I have had really focus on their jobs and seem to have a goal and passion for teaching and helping others to learn for their set careers. My only complaints is the price of the tuition, but that is how college works, and the bathrooms which I feel as though need more attention put in to making them clean. Overall the University of Rhode Island is a very nice school and I would recommend it to anyone seeking a four year university to attend.

Being a Rhode Island resident, raised in providence, allowed me to be able to have the college experience close to my house. I am part of Talent Development that helps be pay for URI. Despite the debt that I will be in, it was changed my life and I will continue to do my best.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is my dream school. I would never want to go anywhere else. Seeing that I am out of state, it is pretty expensive so I really need any little bit of many I can get. Please help me afford my dream school, anything is appreciated. I would not be asking if it wasn't so important to me and my family.
