High School Seniors invited to URI Open House in Providence

Students may now be admitted full-time for Fall 2006

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — December 1, 2005 — For high school seniors planning to enroll full-time in college next year, but hoping to reduce the costs involved with moving from home and living on campus, The University of Rhode Island has a new option: enrollment at its Feinstein Providence Campus.

For the first time, high school students interested in majoring in communication studies, human development and family studies, or psychology can apply to the University and on their application they can choose to complete their degree at the non-residential, Feinstein Providence Campus.

On Saturday, Dec. 10 from 10 a.m. to noon, the University will hold an open house to explain this new option to high school seniors and their families. The open house will be held at the Providence Campus on 80 Washington Street.

The open house will provide first-time students with an opportunity to meet with advisors, review the programs and course offerings and the full range of student services, and financial aid.

To register for the Saturday program, call 277-5150 or email Natalie Nascimento at nnascimento@mail.uri.edu. Registration is required.
