Move-In Day 2009

Here are a few facts about URI’s student body for Fall 2009:

Undergraduate students: 12,395

Graduate students: 3,000

Freshmen: 3,129

States represented: 50

Countries represented: 64

Student to faculty ratio:14 to 1

Number of majors offered: 80

Moving In: URI President David M. Dooley and his wife, Lynn Baker-Dooley, must enjoy moving day. Having successfully moved themselves and their dog, Rhody into the freshly renovated president’s house on Upper College Road in August, on Saturday, September 5, the pair bustled down to URI’s residence halls to help the University’s entering freshmen get settled. As President Dooley wrote on his blog the night before move-in: “Obviously, it’s my first academic year at the University of Rhode Island, so I will always have a unique connection to the Class of 2013 as we begin our first year together.” On the next blog post, the president noted that he and Lynn found their first interaction with members of URI’s entering class and their families rewarding and encouraging: “During move-in weekend, Lynn and I met many parents and students from outside the state who were attracted by the quality and value of a URI education.”
