Really known for our Pharmacy, Nursing, and Marine fields because we offer great programs in both as they recieve a ton of funding and have great facilities on and off campus. There is the Bay Campus right on the Narragansett Bay for Marine studies. We've made a lot of progress as a school in regards to upgrading and improving our technologies, buildings, academics and social sphere. I think URI is also known for how much we've changed for the better from our past.

We have a fierce loyalty for our basketball team, and it is a rallying point for many students. We also have a fairly diverse school in its student body and our interests.
