Join us on the Quad on Tuesday, April 25, for our Founders’ Day Festival, when we celebrate the group of people who came together in 1892 to make the University of Rhode Island possible.
The celebration, from 2 to 4 p.m., will include a speaking program, time capsule collection, a concert and live broadcast from WRIU. There’ll be plenty of refreshments, a T-shirt giveway, tours of the historic Watson House and people in late 1800s costumes wandering through the crowd. The winner of a student poetry contest will be announced, and of course Rhody will be there for high fives and photos with your families. Rain Date: Thursday, April 27.
