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.

5 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: You get used to it

2 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Could be worse. It's what you make of it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing itself is fine and it's probably the same a a lot of other schools, there's a ton of teenagers in a small space.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you're not in a frat you're pretty much screwed.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: IZONE is a life saver.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The new gym is really nice but their shirt policy is ridiculous.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They hate anything that has to do with big groups.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: They hounded me to pay loans and I wasn't even out of school yet. Plus the people in Green hall are so mean.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's college food you can't expect much

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing really isn't as bad as the students say. The greek life is actually a lot more prominent than the university claims. Showers are kinda gross but that's with all schools. Dorms are fairly close to the classes. It would be nice to have air conditioning because it gets so muggy in the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Not too bad, you can find almost all of what you'd like at the Kingston Emporium. If not there's Narragansett or the Providence metro area if you're willing to go that far.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Hey what can I say, the administration runs the school, that's pretty much all I know about them. But I have heard of a few instances of them ignoring complaints from students and making questionable changes to the curriculum.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I would not be here filling out scholarship surveys and applications if I got the financial aid that I needed. The struggle is real bro.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I tink that living off campus is great but finding a place to live always seems to be the problem. If you want to live off campus you need to start looking early janurary into feb and make sure that you can put an offer on a house. Believe it or not they go quick because off campus housing is very popular.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I would have to say having a number of options other than campus food is great. The emporium alone offers options for everyone and they deliever right to your dorm! I would say Rhode House was my favorite "off campus" resturant. I was always in the mood for a calzone and they are open late night so you can satisfy those midnight cravings!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I think the party scene was fair this year. I went to some off campus parties and some on campus parties. The only problem is most parties are held by greek life and if you aren't apart of it you may have a tough time hearing about the parties or even attending. For girls it is easy to get in almost anywhere but for guys that a different story. I would have to say I think having more parties on campus would be better just because the amount of drinking and driving that can occur. If parties were on campus then there would have to be no driving involved.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
