University of Rhode Island Reviews
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 is definitely a great school, especially for STEM majors. There are a variety of classes, which makes fulfilling your general education requirements easy. Students from all over come to URI for the pharmacy and engineering programs, and the campus pushes diversity. At orientation, we had to attend a seminar on diversity which helped students feel more connected to one another. The professors are professional and willing to help, and walking around campus never feels unsafe. If you feel unsafe, the campus has a blue-light system so police can be contacted quickly. The campus is beautiful year-round, making it easy to take a walk when studies become overwhelming. The campus is located not far from the beach and also Newport, a beautiful town right on the ocean. Every time I eat at URI, I have not been disappointed. The choices allow students to make healthy choices with ease. There are a lot of clubs and organizations for all, and Greek life is very apparent.
