A large school with a very active environment. There is always something going on across campus and there are endless ways to get involved. The professors are always there to help you when you need it and its easy to see that they love what they teach.

I love it here at URI. All my teachers have been great so far and there are plenty of clubs to meet new people.

Everyone is very friendly, there are so many resources when you need help. Advisors are really great with scheduling, especially if you want to change your major.
