HISTORY

(Borrowed from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Rhode_Island)

University of Rhode Island (URI) is the principal public research university located in Kingston, RI. Additional campuses include the Feinstein Campus in Providence, the Narragansett Bay Campus in Narragansett, and the W. Alton Jones Campus in West Greenwich. URI currently enrolls 14,546 undergraduate and 4,549 graduate students. It is a land grant, sea grant, and urban grant institution. US News and World Report classifies URI as a tier 1 national university, ranking it 147th overall.

The University was first chartered as the state's agricultural school and agricultural experiment station in 1888.  The site of the school was originally the Oliver Watson Farm, the original farmhouse of which is still maintained as a small museum.  In 1892, the school became known as the Rhode Island College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. The first class had only seventeen students, each completing their course of study in two years. In 1909, the school's name was again changed to Rhode Island State College as the school's programs were expanded beyond its original agricultural education mandate. In 1951 the school was given its current title through an act of the General Assembly following the addition of the College of Arts and Sciences and the offering of doctoral degrees. The Board of Governors for Higher Education, appointed by the governor, became the governing body of the University in 1981. The current president is David M. Dooley.

 

Like all the other major institutions, the student body would offer concerts throughout the year.
