You Tell Us

What does Keaney Blue mean to you? To Paul Nonnenmacher ’80, it comes with a whole houseful of memories. That’s because Paul actually painted his home in URI colors. Yup. In the middle of Connecticut. We have only two words for Paul: Go Rams!

See his responses to our questions—sent, naturally, in text he had colored Keaney Blue. Then email us at or use #keaneyblue on Twitter and Instagram to tell us YOUR Keaney Blue story.

Why do you like Keaney Blue so much?

Why do the Irish love green?

Has anyone else in your family attended URI?

Our daughter, Nicole, was a little skittish about telling me she had chosen UConn instead, since I had told her there was only one college that would have forced me to disown her. Of course I was joking.

How did you persuade your wife to paint your house Keaney Blue?

Our first house was white with green trim, and we realized those were the colors of Cathy’s alma mater, Michigan State. So I jokingly told her that our next house was going to be URI colors. She played along until she saw another house painted Keaney Blue and liked it.
