Rhody Reveal

Although he’s had a few makeovers and his name changed over the years from Battering Ram to Ramses to Rhody, our much-loved mascot has always been at the heart of URI spirit. On February 25, 2009, at halftime of the men’s basketball game against the University of Dayton, URI unveiled the latest Rhody seen here.

The Ram became our mascot on March 8, 1923, and on November 21, 1929, the first live ram made his appearance; these rams were housed on campus until the 1960s.
