The University of Rhode Island is the state's largest university as well as the land- and sea- grant institution. The main campus is based in Kingston, which, as of 2018, is named to the National Register of Historic Places, and spans 1,200 acres which feature "green" buildings with "vegetative" roofs. URI has 10 colleges and schools that offer more than 80 majors, and a host of research centers and institutes, such as the Rhode Island Food Center at URI. There are three other campuses located at Providence, Narragansett, and West Greenwich.
The atmosphere and the student life are the best parts about the University of Rhode Island. There is a community that thrives here as well as tough manageable academics with a lot of room to grow and achieve.

The University of Rhode Island is a great place to be because there's something for everyone here so no one feels out of place. There are so many intelligent people and they're taught by the greatest professors. It's not too big or too small; it's just right.
