URI Student Ambassadors

Our student ambassadors are a vital resource for prospective students and families. They represent a wide variety of majors, interests, class years, and hometowns. Throughout the school year they serve as tour guides, host live social media events, participate on panels, and more. We encourage you to reach out to these campus leaders. Ask questions and get to know what URI is really like from a student’s perspective.
