5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is very helpful and has given me great experiences that I will alway remember and influence who I am as a member of society in the future. My professors are all very helpful and go out of their way to give us a wealth of knowledge.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am currently doing very well academically, however there is nothing fun to do on campus or around the town.

Overall Experience: As an in-state student, URI is what you make of it. If you spend your four (or more) years dwelling on the fact that you couldn't afford/attend another school, you will never understand URI has a lot to offer their students. The school is big enough where you will see new people on a daily basis but at the same time you may run into someone you were just been thinking about. The school is becoming quite the symbol for the little state of Rhody and it starts with the friendly students and the dedicated staff. I look forward to the next few years I'll spend at URI.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Rhode Island is an excellent school for me. Its location is fantastic, located near Narragansett and not a long drive to Providence, RI. For Rhode Islanders it is also reasonably close to home as the state is relatively small. Class sizes are very manageable, professors are well accredited and easy to approach, and the campus is beautiful! It's not too small nor too large, and walking to Class Halls is not an impossible task between two back-to-back classes. Advising, extra-curricular activities, and job opportunities are all plentiful as well, making the campus entertaining and useful for everyone. I'm very pleased with my decision to attend this school, even though I never truly toured it before solidifying my choice to attend, and I would definitely choose this school if I was required to go through the process all over again. I have made amazing friends and memories alike, and was able to get involved in the school in the best way possible, which has made my first year at the school an incredible experience that I will not forget.

Overall Experience: My specific program at the University of Rhode Island is rigorous, intellectually stimulating, and one of the best on the East Coast. My marine biology specific courses are tailored to the student, and are taught by exceptional faculty. Socially, URI is well developed with Greek systems and a on sexuality concept on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Living on campus for my freshman year was an experience I will never forget and can honestly say that a lot of life lessons were learned from such an experience. The URI campus is very large and working with a large school, time management and travel had to be learned and appreciated in order to be successful in my

Classes. I love the open, welcoming atmosphere and I would no doubt choose to attend this University if I were to make the decisiom again!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school has a lot to offer but a lot of the teachers don't care enough about the students

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love it. Rhode Island is so different than New York but its beautiful and I have learned to love it and appreciate all this small state has to offer.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I believe that the University of Rhode Island is a great school and they provide one of the best education in Rhode Island. when i started school i had some difficulties with my class work but i picked it up at the end. i would say that i am glad i chose this school not only because they have my major but i learned and met a lot of people. they are my path to the future

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: University Of Rhode Island is great in terms of general offering of courses. University of Rhode Island would be a lot better if it met the need of students that applied rather than just offering loans

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: URI has taught me to explore the unknown and network.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The students that attend URI are extremely friendly. This doesn't mean that you'll get along with everyone, but most people tend to be pretty tolerable. I don't know if this is with every college, but the students here are very open to making friends. The library is my favorite place; endless numbers of computers, study areas, and lounge areas. Campus is also very pretty all four seasons but a bit of a hassle traveling through since the school is on a huge hill.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Rhode Island is the most amazing school. Although I have not attended any others, I can confidently say URI is the best choice a student can make. The location, the people, and the opportunities are the minimum of what makes the school an extraordinary place to study at. Never once have I come across an unfriendly person or someone who was not willing to help me when I needed it. Aside from this, I have made my two best friends at this school. After just a year together I can tell we will be life long friends, and for this I thankful I decided to attend the University of Rhode Island. Yes there are many positive things about this school, but unfortunately I am an out of state student. With this, the tuition is more than I can afford. I am a first year college student in my family and I want to attend the school of my dreams. Unfortunately I am unable to continue at URI without the help of scholarships or any financial aid. I would like to see myself graduate URI after four years and not have to transfer elsewhere due to the tuition. Any money helps, thank you!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like my school. It has a good distance from my home.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The biggest part of URI for me is the professors. I've met so many wonderful people while at school whom helped me along the way!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the campus and location of my school. The classes aren't too big or too small.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love URI. At first I was bored but that was because I didn't put myself out there and get involved. I rushed a sorority and I'm beyond happy that I did. Even though I hate how cold it can get, I'm so happy I go to URI. If I were to close a college all over again, I would probably chose somewhere down south but it would have to have Greek life. It just changed my life for the better. Nonetheless I'm beyond happy with my choice.
