What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
The activities being offered on campus are all for you so take advantage of that and get involved. It will make your time there so enjoyable. And don't get too sucked in to the party scene. It is fun to go out just stay on top of your school work and don't let partying get in the way.
Paige from Nashua, NH
There are many tips that I can offer about URI to prospective students. First off, take advantage of the meal plans at this school because it is worth it. The dinning services offer such a large variety of food that does not get boring and keeps you well fed with an all you can eat style dinning plan. Another thing that I can offer as advice is to sign up for classes as soon as you can. I got in a jam with a few classes and had to move my schedule around a bit because I waited to sign up. The second that classes are available to you, grab them! In terms of the orientation, try to go to an earlier orientation towards the beginning of the summer if you can because you will have a the chance to snag the classes before other students. Finally, get involved with the school because being a part of the campus life is so important. I have many friends who have missed out on a lot that the school offers because they did not sign up for anything and did not want to bother getting involved. The more you do at URI, the more people you will meet, and the more relationships you foster, the more fun you will have and the more memorable your college experience will be.
Brandon from Wakefield, RI
Although it is a state school, it doesn't feel very large and overwhelming. The environment is great and you get a good amount of people without feeling overcrowded or over looked. Also for it being a state school, some people would assume that it is easy to get into, but honestly it all depends on the program you apply for. Some of the programs are highly selective.
Morgan from Wolfeboro, NH
Get involved with something on campus, it will make your time here worth every penny you spend. Work very hard your first semesters because these are the stepping stones for your GPA and remember it's just as important to have fun while you're here.
Christian from Bradford, RI
Be proactive. Ask questions and engage yourself in activities on campus. You will enjoy your undergraduate experience more.
Holly from Middletown, RI
1. Go to class.
2. Go out and participate. It's the best way to meet new people.
3. Take advantage of the free services offered. Career services, the library, the gym, etc etc etc...
4. If you commute: the parking is terrible. Be prepared to arrive early, have trouble finding a spot, and pay for a commuter pass (yearly).
Andrew from Narragansett, RI
Use the gym and the AEC and the library - you're paying for these things, but it's depressing how few students actually use them.
Hayley from Hope, RI
Make sure you complete your homework and attend class.
