University of Rhode Island Reviews
Review University of Rhode Island
I studied art and loved it, faculty were very knowledgable and caring. I do wish that the University put more money towards the Fine Art Center. Driving past, you would not think this was an art center. It is a concrete building with pieces of the wall falling off. In the back, there is construction that had begun, but stopped midway and was left there. The campus is beautiful and so close to the ocean. The science and medical majors, especially Pharmacy, are amazing at URI. They just built new science buildings and they have everything these majors could need. Dorms are okay. The freshman dorms are good for the most part, but you should take a look at as many as you can. Sophomore dorms are the worst ones. Some rooms have balconies which is cool, but the bathrooms are broken and not well taken care of. The food is great! For school food I definitely think URI has one of the best. My favorite was the themed dinners.
University of Rhode Island; one of the biggest schools coming from the country's smallest state. If URI isn't in your top schools, then it should be. This university offers an amazing experience for anybody who decides to take their next life steps on to our campus. You'll never feel out of place here, the amount of diversity from student to student amazes me. With students from all ends of the country, and even the farthest parts of the earth, you are accepted no matter what your background may be. Along with the amazing students, the things to do are endless! We have clubs, sports, Greek life, and so much more. Now for the most important aspect, academics. URI has so much to offer for any career path you may want to pursue, the staff we have here is incredible and they will do anything to make sure that you are on your best track to success. School is our top priority here and our student body does everything we can to ensure that it stays that way.
URI has been very welcoming to my peers and I from the very start. The tour I took of the school in high school was filled with energy and enthusiasm from the tour guide. I further attended a weekend stay at the University at Orientation. The orientation leaders were unbelievably welcoming, polite, and funny. They kept us busy while allowing us to get what we needed to get done accomplished and also meet people and begin making friendships. During the first weeks at URI the professors were very understanding that I was a freshman. I was late to almost every class because I could not find the building and they understood completely. URI has great resources left and right such as academic advising, tutoring, SI help, and walk in hours for each professor. The school is also lively at the sport games and very well kept. I love being here and am excited for the remaining time I have here as a Ram!
