The University of Rhode Island is a great school that would be a wonderful fit for someone who is academically focused, but willing to have fun. The school is just minutes from the beach and about a half hour away from the city. There are lots of places in the area to go on nature walks, swimming, rockclimbing, canoing, and even kayaking. Also, Rhode Island has some of the best pizza around. The library is a great place to study and perfect for someone cramming, or just trying to spend extra time to perfect their work.

Christina

Any level of student can attend this school as long as they understand that studying is important to pass a class.

Amanda

A person dedicated to their education should go to URI. If you're looking for a school that's centered on partying, URI isn't it. After having a bad reputation as a party school a few decades ago, URI completely revamped their policies, becoming a dry campus and enforcing safer policies. The hard work the school did has paid off, attracting more serious students with competitive programs such as Pharmacy (which I am fortunate to be a part of).

Disregarding my dislikes about the school, I believe URI could be the home too many. It is a well diverse school with plenty of opportunities for its students. If you are looking for a place where you can walk around comfortably being who you are, URI is the place for you. Warming smiles wait openly whether it be squeezing in elevators or sharing a table at lunch. It is a college for the anxious ones who really want a good college experince.

Emily

In my opinion, I beleive my school is perfect for anyone who is open-minded, friendly, ready to be academically challenged and environmentally challenged. If a person is all about partying they can still come here but they'll be getting the wrong experience.

Courtney

The perfect person to attent URI in my opinion is someone who is very out going and very democratic. This person should also have alot of school spirit and enjoy some sort of "Greek" life. The perfect person for URI should also enjoy being set in the "country" but also being able to drive 20 minutes and be in the "city."

Stephen

Someone who wants to be well rounded

Kira

Someone who's willing to work, but also has the ability to entertain themselves. You need to be focused and yet willing to go with the flow. Socially outgoing, but okay with being left alone. And you definately need to be able to drive yourself around. Otherwise you're landlocked.

Bailey

A person who is eager to meet more people and in search of answers. They will not spoon feed you here. You need to make your own path and be willing to do whatever it takes to get there.

Zack

The ideal person for URI is someone who wants balance in their life. All the academic programs are strong and can be time consuming, but the social life also takes up plenty of time for outgoing people. URI is a dry campus, so most partying takes place off campus, usually at someone's house or at nearby bars. Many beaches are also minutes away, but unfortunately they can only be used in September and late April/early May, due to cold winters. Involvement at URI is strongly encouraged, and those who focus will be successful in their major and career.

Brittany

URI is a very open-minded university that really values diversity and tries to erase any stereotypes or prejudices from their students' minds. I think any type of person could fit in and find their own at this university; whether it is a peppy sorority girl, a jock, a total hippie, or a shy, kind person. URI really helps to broaden a person's outlook on life and the social group they're used to belonging to.

Jennifer

Someone who is comfortable being in the country not in a big city. There is not a lot to do on weekends on campus, so they would have to drive somewhere if they want something to do off campus. Providence is right nearby and the ocean is 15 minutes away so you can always find something fun to do.
