The academic program which ROTC provides challenges students to develop the responsibility, self-confidence, and leadership ability necessary to be successful, not only in the military, but in the civilian sector as well. The program emphasizes academic excellence, physical training, written and oral communication, as well as ethics to develop all facets of an individual. Qualified cadets have the opportunity to attend U.S. Army Airborne, Air Assault, Northern Warfare, and Mountain Schools, all while pursuing the goal of accepting a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army, United States Army Reserve, or Army National Guard

For its many benefits, Army ROTC requires only a few hours a week. It does not interfere with your required college curriculum or social life. In fact, you will find ROTC a great place to form lasting friendships.

Upon graduation from a 4-year college and successful completion of ROTC, cadets receive commissions as Second Lieutenants in one of the Army's specialized branches. If you would like to build a solid, well-rounded future, take a closer look at Army ROTC at the University of Rhode Island.

Description: MAKE IT BRIGHT is a University of Rhode Island student-driven group working in tandem with the â€..."Share the Lightâ€￾ project. â€..."Share the Lightâ€￾ was established in 2004 to provide direct support to the orphans of San Mauricio in BogotÃ'¡, Colombia. San Mauricio houses orphaned children who were either abandoned by their parents, adjudicated dependent because of their parent’s incarceration or because of the civil war.

San Mauricio is an amazing foundation that provides the food, shelter and the health care for these children that they otherwise would not have. There are many volunteers who dedicate their time to these children
who, without them, would have no one else to depend on. But still, the foundation cannot afford to meet all of the children’s needs. These children only own very little second hand clothing and toys.

For the last six years, â€..."Share the Lightâ€￾ has purchased clothing and shoes for all of these children and presented them at a holiday party in December. Each child is given a pair of shoes or sneakers, a package of socks, underwear, a tee shirt, a shirt, a pair of jeans and a sweat-outfit and a small toy or doll. It is estimated that the cost of purchasing these items for the children at a discount department
store is approximately $100 per child. MAKE IT BRIGHT is working to support this same cause.

Now it is our turn. MAKE IT BRIGHT is an organization aimed at the Millennial generation to start making a difference. What better way is there than to brighten the future of those less fortunate than us? Our hope is to help these children of San Mauricio have better childhoods, but why stop there? This could be the start to something big, something that is world-wide. With your help we can help Colombia, then the United States, and then who knows? We are the millennial generation; a world of change is at our fingertips.

Description: Mission and Vision:


SLU highly prides itself as an organization of diverse college-educated (collegiate) and professional women dedicated to uplifting traditionally marginalized groups, especially Latinos and women, by serving as a voice and means for empowerment. Since 1987, SLU has been an outlet for professional development and personal growth to its members and serving constituents. The Sorority's impact can be seen in the outstanding accomplishments of their Hermanas, the young women they have mentored through the LADYS and PEARLS programs, and through the lives of all the people the Sorority has touched via their many literacy initiatives. Thus, proving to colleges and communities that women of color can make a difference.



Sigma Lambda Upsilon has a passion for leading and developing underprivileged communities through the Sorority's goals of academic excellence, leadership, sisterhood, cultural enrichment, and service to the community and campus. It is evident that the Sorority's undergraduate and Graduate/Professional chapters challenge the status quo through programming initiatives that are both exemplary and unique. Sigma Lambda Upsilon's impenetrable bond and relentless commitment to one another transcends time, which is why the Sorority considers their sisterhood-Hermandad- lasting Hasta La Muerte!



SLU continues to carry out the Sorority's ideals and achieve the organization's goals with a commitment to each other, the campuses the Sorority serves, and the communities the organization works in every day.

The Iron Cage Society
(Sociology Club)

Welcome,
The University of Rhode Island's Sociology Club invites and encourages those pursuing degrees in sociology, as well as anyone interested in topics and current issues concerning sociology, to get involved and help facilitate social progress from a personal, innovative, and enlightening approach.

Why The Iron Cage Society?

"[T]he care for external goods should only lie on the shoulders of the 'saint like a light cloak', which can be thrown aside at any moment. But fate decreed that the cloak should become an iron cage" - Max Weber

The sociological conception of the Iron Cage, constructed by Max Weber, refers to the constricting societal systems we have perpetuated as a modern civilization. These social systems play a major role in how the characteristics of individuals and communities are shaped. The Iron Cage Society is devoted to creating and sustaining a stable, supportive, and equal student community structure.
Consider it our very own iron cage.

Through the reinforcement of already present social positives, as well as through facilitating new forms of social stability, our mission is to create and perpetuate social progress for those "who will live in that iron cage in the future."

So don't miss this opportunity to have an active voice in building the iron cage of tomorrow. Whether it is through community service efforts, networking with other on campus organizations, or from the insight gained by guest speakers and group discussions; The Iron Cage Society acts as a catalyst for personal, professional, and communal growth.
