URI Loves its Young Alumni

What would you give to relive your favorite University of Rhode Island memories?



Your days of searching frantically for parking to make an 8 am class may be over, but once a Rhody Ram, always a Rhody Ram.  You've all had amazing experiences at URI and have benefited from your time as students here. Whether you traveled abroad, became involved in a student organization, participated in a great internship or met lifelong friends here, URI is a part of who you are. And private support made much of it possible.

Why is it so important that young and recent grads support URI?

Lots of reasons - and they benefit URI and you!  Supporting URI helps provide opportunity to the generations of students following you, ensuring that the academic experience continues to be an extraordinary one.

The number of alumni supporting their alma mater is a key measure of a university's competitiveness.  Your gift, regardless of size, makes you a part of the URI donor family and helps URI grow on all accounts. Your help is vital and can make a positive impact.  No matter how much you give or what you area you choose to support, it all helps.  Every gift makes a difference!

How does your donation help you?

Besides making you an even more engaged alum who is counted on and valued by your alma mater (as if that isn't enough!) - it could actually help get you a job!  Any enhancement to URI's competitiveness will result in the increased value of your degree, making it all the more appealing to potential employers.

So as you sit back and remember the good old URI days, know that you have the power to help make the next generation of Rams even prouder of URI by making a gift to URI today.
