Graduated in 1996 as a commuting student. I was in my 3o's when I went to URI in Civil Engineering. I have a great job and URI made it possible!

For me, it was just the 'right size' -- not too big, not too small. Beautiful campus. The facilities, students and professors are very good, overall. In 4 years, I matured, developed and graduated ready to make my way in the world. 15 years later, I'm in the middle of a very successful & interesting career and am a dedicated father & husband -- I thank URI for preparing me.
