2 College Student

Academics: It is a lot of work and if your good at it then go for it. If you like it, then go for it.

3 College Student

Computers: Computers are available but networks are weak.

3 College Student

Transportation: Its hard to get to the place you want to go.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I have gone to URI twice in the past, and now I'm back for my third degree.

College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't participate in sports.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: URI is not known for being awesome at taking care of snow.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The shuttle is amazing! Its perfect for those cold winter days.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: You can deffinilty have a lot of fun in your college expereince. A lot of students have cars that are a form of transportation, also a lot of students live off campus which is great to throw parties or even just hang out and get away from being on campus. Organizations on campus often throw parties at the Union which are either free or $5.00 which is great if you just want to hang out and have fun for a bit.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: URI is a white prodominent school but I believe a lot of schools in the upper portion of our continent are. There are major diverse groups, and clubs for people who are part of the LGBTQ community. There are also Mulit-Cultural Organizations on campus so groups of people do not feel left out of there school. I think the challanges we have is that ethnic people feel like they cannot speak to white students and vise versa. This is not for all students but I do feel like it is a problem.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am actually going to rush this upcoming Spring because I do think that being part of Greek Life is a great way to meet people. Our school is mostly a white predominant school and Greek Life is also prodomintly white but with this being said I believe it is a great way for people to create more diversity and understand other ethnic backgrounds. A lot of people are stereotypical about Greek Life but it only because they are ignorant to who they are and what they do. They do have parties but like any other groups of people they use it as a form of downtime and to have fun. They are also involved with the community and have awesome Philanthropys.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We do have a place called the Emporium were we are able to go and get food from numerous restaurants. They are pretty good overall. The pricing in some places are a bit too much compared to the amount of food that is given. Then again everything is by choice, some people do not find the meals to expensive and some do. I would say it is about average and affordable for college students.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: We live in New England so the temperature here varies and the weather fluctuates a lot. I wouldn't say that the weather affects my campus experience in such a negative way. There are busses that drive around campus so we always have the option of not walking around everywhere in the snow or rain. It is a bit inconvenient when that option does not apply due to timing or any other reasons, but overall, I would not say that our weathr is a downfall.

URI is a school with two identities: It is a place to learn and a place to party. The University offers students many options in the classroom, which leads to many options in life. Students here know the importance of being motivated and focused and are dedicated to getting the best out of their four (or more) years of college. At URI, you will find an atmosphere that is extremely well balanced when it comes to work and play. If URI students learn two things while they are here, they learn how to succeed and how to have a good time. Most students are happy with their choice of making URI their home for higher education.

Students agree that there is an equal balance of academics and social life, and they are expected to do well and are given many opportunities to succeed. The biggest part of college is learning to adjust and knowing what is out there. URI is a friendly environment, and most students are happy here. Academics are the biggest challenge, and getting into the right classes is often an obstacle. There are a lot of organizations and events that engage students throughout the year. Overall, students have a positive experience at URI, and there’s definitely something for everyone to enjoy.
