Alumni and Family Weekend 2017

October 20-22, 2017

We’ve turned two great, separate events (Homecoming and Family Weekend) into one big gathering, now called Alumni and Family Weekend! We want everyone to come home together — parents, families, alumni, students, and faculty and staff — for an exciting weekend of reunions, entertainment, family activities, and special programs.

Tickets and Registration

Tickets for the Homecoming Game and An Evening with Whoopi Goldberg go on sale Monday, June 19 at 10am. In order for families to sit together, please reserve tickets for both family and URI students at the same time. Please Note: Once discounted ticket capacities are reached in certain price levels, only full general public tickets prices will be available for purchase.

Mini Reunions

Think about the people who made your URI experience so special. Maybe they were your teammates or members of the Greek community. Or the students you sat with in Butterfield every year. Or those crazy freshmen from your first residence hall. They are the people you really want to see at Alumni & Family Weekend, and the way to make that happen is by planning a mini reunion at Rhodyville.

Rhodyville is the place to be before the big game. The URI Alumni Association is putting together all the ingredients for a perfect party: from the kid-thrilling Fun Zone to the crowd-pleasing performances by URI student groups to all the spirit gear you’ll need to show your Rhody pride. We’ll have plenty of food trucks on-site to keep you energized, and all Rhodyville attendees get to participate in our free raffles; prizes will include baskets overflowing with fun URI gear.

If you register your mini reunion in Rhodyville by September 1, your group will receive reserved space, event support, and special amenities such as an exclusive gift from the Alumni Association.
