Beautiful school! Didn’t get to do a tour but managed to be told about all the hidden gems by the amazing librarian that has worked there for 20 years! Showed us the wall of fame on the 3rd floor. Amazing. Loved the charm of all the nestled buildings. Can’t wait to go back for a tour.

Went here for 1 year and transferred out. Would’ve dropped out sooner if my loans allowed it. In the middle of no where despite pushing students to not bring cars. Public transportation takes forever. Only way to make friends was through sororities or very specified programs. Nothing to do on campus except watch basketball. Dorm always smelled like weed. Couldn’t take food from the dining hall. Clubs were mediocre and many leaders and participants seemed disinterested. Shared a bathroom with 3 floors of girls because floors were coed but bathrooms were not and every other floor had a different gender bathroom. Very homogenous group of people. Very isolating. Weak history program. Only had 2 dining halls for 15,000 students. And one was closed on the weekends. Dining halls only open until 8:30, even on weekends. RIPTA stops running at 10pm. Commute home on holidays took twice as long via public transportation. Printing was expensive and so was laundry. Met like 2/300 people from my hall. Grounds always had dead grass and beer cans. Quad was always too busy to enjoy. Fine arts center looks like a prison. Many facilities need updating. Academics were too easy and left me feeling unfulfilled. Massive parking problem. Greek life dominates too much. Everyone vapes or juuls or drinks. No sense of community and little school spirit. They overstate concerts, there was 3 the whole year. Feel left out when people go home for holidays since they live so close but you can’t. Never in a million years would I recommend or go back to this school.

I have interacted with many of alumn from this institution that are older generation and have had the distaste of most of them acting pompous and having narcissistic tendencies.. One might wonder if its the school or the students they have had the displeasure of recruiting or accepting to the university... Have yet to meet the first good one that is actually a scholar instead of pretending to be one..

Not affiliated with this school. Just wondering how's the legendary egg sandwich like. I guess it must be fantastic. Can anybody post a picture? Thanks.

When I took this tour at first I was a little worried because how far away from home I was , but then I realized that I'm totally fine with it ! The campus is AMAZING! I fell in love with it right away. I just felt welcomed when I look at someone just because they had a smile on their face . I also love the diversity on campus , it show that this university supports all races. Really looking forward to joining you in 2019 !!!
