The stereotype of students at U.R.I. is that of stoners. If you have seen my other answers you will see that I reference this multiple times. It is relatively prevalent on campus. I remember after transferring and living on campus I lived in Heathman Hall, and I had a joined room via bathroom with another student. For the majority of the year the kid I was joined with dealt, the kid across the hall dealt, and there was a kid down that hall that dealt medicinal stuff. It can be hard to get away from, but it does instill a strong constitution if you choose to avoid it.
Never on task...party animals.
As incomming freshman, many students believe that you need to be involved in a Fraternity or Sorority in order to have a social life. This is not the case at all. Join a club or find friends to study with and there will be things to do on the weekends.
URI has a reputation as a party school. It is.. more so as upper classmen once you have a chance to Network with other students
Partiers. Jersey Girls.
URI can sometimes get a bad rep as a party school, we also have two other stereotypes, we get a lot of the hippie stereotype and the "jersey girl" stereotype.
The biggest stereotype is probably that kids at URI are all big partiers.
Some adults that I've told I go to URI think its a HUGE party school.
That URI is a party school.
That they are all drunk sorority girls and dumb jocks
I haven't heard of any yet, maybe that there are a lot of "guidos"?
Since the university has had an image as a party school portrayed for some time, the fairly recent changes away from that mindset haven't really registered yet. As a result, everyone still thinks that people come to this school for its entertainment value, not for a good education.
Some stereotypes on the out- of staters is that they are rich spoiled drug-addicts.
The in-staters fair much better with a rep of hard work as a means to get out of the situation they are in. They work hard to get their grades and earn a chance at great success.
That we love to party and get wasted a lot.
That we are just a huge party school
That everyone is from RI and everyone likes to party
Party school with lots of drinking
its a party school
URI is viewed as a party school. Many would like to believe it is not as big of a party school as it used to be. However, this is only true for on campus. A short drive down the line to a bar or house will prove you wrong.
We are a party school, and that we don't care about the type of work we do, that we are just at Rhody to have fun.
That URI is a very large party school and there is a lot of pot smoking.
its called ur high
Everyone is from Jersey or Rhode Island.
They smoke a lot of weed.
jersey girls, frat boys/sorority girls, there definitely seems to be a major race barrier
we like to party, too many New Jersey/New York people
It's a huge party school and most students would rather be drunk than go to class. Most professors are more interested in doing their research than in actually teaching their classes - if you want/need any extra help, odds are the professor won't even know who you are or want to help you.
Jersey Trash, partiers, slackers...
party school, alcoholics,
uri is a party school. no education... it used to be a better party school, but now that its a dry campus you cant drink
URI students are typically stereotyped as a bunch of dumb party animals with no drive to succeed academically.
Party school, lots of people from New Jersey go to URI
URI is stereotyped as a big party school and has even gained the nickname "U R HIGH." There's definitely an association between the school, alcohol and drugs and people seem to assume there's a lot of students who never go to class.
Big party school
THey are all either hippies or from New Jersey/Long Island
The Faternities, Soroities being the popular.
Some stereotypes that I heard about URI before I began was that it was a big cocaine school with a social scene which was dominated by greek life. I heard that it was crucial to have a car, or knew someone with a car if you wanted to have a social life because all the parties happened "down the line".
Some of the main ideas about URI are to make the students to master any major that he or she is willing to take. Me as a URI student, do not have words to explain how I feel today afeter graduating from URI. When I think about the way I started my college education in URI, and the way I feel today so stunned, so proud of myself of achieving such degreed as a BA in History, I honestely do not have words to explain it. Regarding URI professors, there is no doubt, as educators they are the best of the world, because when they were able to teach a person like me, they are able to teach anyone. I am the first college graduate of eight sons that a single mom raised in one of the poorest town in Dominican Republic.
