I expected most of the requirements that my English major entails, but I thought that composition would be more important than it was. I only needed Composition 1! The workload is manageable, there is a fine arts prerequisite that I really enjoyed completing and the professors for the course requirements all love the jobs they do. Unfortunately, I have no idea of how good our internship opportunities are because I haven't yet investigated them. For study, I advise finding a quiet classroom.

Dream about your future here! CCRI is a GREAT PLACE to kick start your college education; you can complete the costly General Studies Courses at a minimal financial cost. It's an awesome way to 'beef' up your resume if what you desire is to transfer to a bigger 4 year institution. Academically the professors are all very nice/understanding; receiving letters of recommendation is not a hassle. I'm in my third and final semester here in Warwick, and am teeming with anticipation regarding my admissions for the fall. You just need to study hard, do well, and stay focused on your goal whatever that may be. Remember it's not where you start, but where you end up!

Dream About Your Future Here! (It's What You Make of It) – CCRI is a GREAT way to kick - start your college career. You can complete the costly General Studies requirements for little cost. It's also an awesome way to 'beef' up your resume (pertaining to grades) if what you desire is to transfer to a bigger, 4 year institution. Theres also the JAA Program, which helps students with a smooth transition into nearby URI. This school is definitely what you make of it. Yes, the social scene is almost nothing because it's a commuter school and the focus is on receiving an education, but I found most students appreciate the value of the education. I'm in my third and final semester, and am teeming with anticipation for admissions for the fall. Bottom line: you need to stay focused on your overall goal. Whether it be transferring or receiving your associates, CCRI is an effective means to help you reach it. Remember, it's not where you start, but where you end up.
