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.

The purpose of the Club Sports Program is to:

Offer a sporting and competitive activity for any interested student, who has the desire to participate, and develop skills in specific sports.
Provide an opportunity for extramural competition.
Foster the development and growth of individuals through satisfying competitive club sport experiences.
To secure the use of facilities and to provide, if possible, equipment and instruction necessary for orientation and learning skill development.
To serve as a guiding force to perpetuate existing clubs.

Description: Thanks for your interest in the Kingston Volunteer Fire Department! We are excited to show you what we do as the "Defenders of the Hill". We are an all-volunteer, full service fire station that supports the University of Rhode Island campus and the surrounding village of Kingston . This one square mile is home to almost 20,000 people during the school year. KFD provides world class fire protection and emergency medical response to these folks 24/7/365. Unlike most volunteer fire departments, KFD is also home to 12 resident firefighters, whom after probation moved into the fire house. These students and/or young professionals enjoy living rent free in return for maintaining â€..."on-callâ€￾ coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year round.

Along with the resident firefighters, members of KFD are students, URI staff, and town residents, all of whom attend weekly training and have the privilege of calling themselves a Kingston Firefighter. Residents and members have gone on to paid fire departments, police departments, state and federal jobs, military and corporations around the globe. The training, leadership and experience provided at KFD can help you achieve any goal.

We realize that there is an assortment of available activities offered at the University of Rhode Island and surrounding community however we are glad you are considering becoming a volunteer with our fire department. Whether you are already a volunteer elsewhere, want to be a career firefighter, or are just getting started, we look forward to working with you soon.
We ask that you bring; an open-mind, commitment, determination and drive along with you during your journey at Kingston . Trust me, KFD is a place you will truly never forget.

For the next step, come to the firehouse to fill out an application and take a station tour (if you have not done so already). Thanks for your interest and we hope to see you soon. If you see us around campus offer a wave and it just may be you waving to a new prospective volunteer before you know it.

Drew Dudley said that looking at the world as one big world is daunting. You have to look at it as 6 million different perspectives and if you can change just one, you can change the whole world, and not even know it. As a group and as individuals, we strive to change just one perspective, in the hopes that it will change the world.

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.

Description: "THE IRON CAGE HOME-PAGE"
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.
Events: First meeting- Wednesday, September 17th at 6:00 p.m. in Chafee 501! Monthly meeting schedule is TBA.

Description: Formerly known as URI Martial Arts: Capoeira

Capoeira is a Brazilian art form which combines fight, dance, rhythm and movement. Capoeira is a dialog between players - a conversation through movement which can take on many shades of meaning. The details of capoeira's origins and early history are still a matter of debate among historians, but it is clear that african slaves played a crucial role in the development of the artform. Some historians claim that slaves used capoeira's dance-like appearance as a way to hide their training of combat and self defense. Capoeira's many styles come out of the context of two principle branches that were formalized in the first half of the twentieth century following capoeira's legalization. This is only the beginning of the story - look below to find out more. But to really understand capoeira, you need to see it for yourself. Open to all.

Description: W.O.W.W is an organization that uniquely benefits URI by offering a chance for freshmen women to feel comfortable, safe, and supported in the community that our upper class mentors create. Freshmen, or Mentees, receive stability, support, and mentorship as well as the opportunity to become positive role models and future Mentors of the group. As an organization we strive to ease the transition of first year women to college life. Some topics we address include successful study habits, nutrition, sexual assault, campus involvement, time management, coping with stress, date rape drugs, substance abuse, domestic violence, and stalking. The sense of community we create for freshmen women helps to increase their personal development throughout the rest of their college careers.
Events: W.O.W.W meets every Thursday night in the Women's Center Library throughout the academic year. Mentors and freshman are required to arrive for meetings at 6:00 PM. Additionally, before every meeting, WOWW Executive Board Members meet at 5:00 to discuss plans for the upcoming month. Members of W.O.W.W are also broken up into "families" with 2-3 freshmen Mentees assigned to 3-4 upper class mentors and each family gets together on the weekends and outside of mandatory weekly meetings to have fun off campus and get to know each other a little better.
