Although we may be few or many in number, we seek to enhance the community with awareness and appreciation of world-wide cultures. Most importantly, Alima is a family. We are a sisterhood/brotherhood who prides itself in building one another up. Moreover, we are civil leaders that engage in community awareness and service projects within our state and donate to several larger organizations such as: SCARI (Sickle Cell Association of Rhode Island) and Destiny Africa/Kampala House (A Ugandan Children's Choir/Ugandan Orphanage). As an organization we realize that it's not always about dancing or singing but it's about understanding the many cultures in the world and how we can embrace it as well as lending a hand where help is needed.
Events: Alima International Dance Association does not host various events; however, we have our annual showcase called, "Rhythm of the Soul". Within that, a variety of "rhythmic expressions" such as, poetry, dance, songs, and others are displayed from numerous cultures. Each year Alima expounds on a certain theme that entails unity and diversity for the campus. As we are graciously celebrating our 10th year of service to the university as a "music and dance-orchestrating" multicultural organization, we are in the spirits of continuing this great legacy.

Description: Army ROTC is a program which provides college students the skills and leadership training to become officers in the United States Active Army, Army Reserve, and National Guard.

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.

Website: http://www.uri.edu/recservices/clubsports/
Description: The University of Rhode Island Club Sports Program is a competitive recreational sports program for University students, designed to meet athletic needs not met by existing intramural and intercollegiate programs. The basic philosophy and key to the success of the program, is the emphasis placed on participation and competition. Each club is organized by students; coaches are selected by teammates, and perform without monetary compensation, unless funds are raised by the individual team specifically for that purpose.

The Club Sports Program relies heavily on student initiative, organization and financing to make the program effective. The Club Sports office considers its primary role in this area to be advisory in nature so as to preserve student initiative and leadership.

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.

Other: For the Future is a charitable non-profit organization dedicated to helping orphans and poor children in Africa. For the Future aims to provide educational opportunities for disadvantaged youth so they can build a better future for themselves and their communities.
The criteria for selecting the child is that he or she must be enrolled in primary or secondary school and exhibit financial need. It is well understood that children from poor and uneducated families are more likely to grow up to be poor and uneducated adults. Children from poor families are unlikely to enroll in school and complete their education due to the costs associated with buying books, backpacks, writing utensils, uniforms, and paying tuition. This cost becomes exorbitant for families with several children.
Our mission is to transform the lives of African orphans and poor children from primary school through college. We provide immediate needs while offering access to the best education possible. We believe every child deserves the opportunity to attend school and are convinced that education is the best way to break the cycle of poverty.

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 "on-call" coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year round. Additionally, current URI students can obtain up to 15 credits for their completion of probationary training as well as receive internship credit for other department projects.

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.

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 say hello, offer a wave and it just may be you waving to a new prospective volunteer before you know it.

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: 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: We are a club that will try to further diversify the atmosphere at URI. By teaching, helping, motivating and inspiring our local URI community we will foster a sense of empowerment toward the environment. The club centers around environmental sustainability with a subset in agricultural composting. Many of our members have backgrounds in environmental composting as well biodegradable materials. As a result, we plan to create fertile compost over the duration of 5 months with the ultimate intent to use the compost along the compass to plant some flowers. Furthermore, the club can educate and teach new members about the benefits of composting and future acts of environmental conservation. Additionally, the club is also focused on water quality and pH testing. Many of the members have science and biochemistry backgrounds. Therefore, we have learned some information on lab techniques to test water and quality. In essence, the water quality testing technique is to make sure the URI water is safe, but mainly to educate members on proper lab techniques regarding pH reading and testing. Finally, the club will try to produce a beautiful garden towards the spring months. As a result, this can create a more pleasant view for other fellow URI students as well as a cleaner environment.

Through this program students gain the opportunity to look at the local and global community critically through acts of service, activism, and leadership. The trip offers a real-life immersion into the social, economic, political, and cultural issues that affect our country today. This is an out of the classroom experience that facilitates critical thinking and problem-solving skills that can be integrated into academia and the community.

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 Multicultural Center in the Hardge Forum 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.

Org Name: WRIU 90.3 FM Radio
Org President: Benjamin Kinch

Website: http://www.wriu.org
Description: Rhode Island's leading non-commercial radio station, WRIU is the sonic embodiment of the independent spirit that spurred the creation of the state (and later inspired the whole nation... you know... that independent spirit).

A broadcast service of the University of Rhode Island, WRIU is managed by a student-run Executive Board and staffed by many dedicated student and community volunteers. Our offices and broadcast facilities are located on the third floor of the Memorial Union on URI's Kingston campus.

The station operates a 3500 Watt FM station broadcasting at 90.3 FM from a transmitter located on the URI campus to all of Rhode Island, as well as parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Long Island, NY, and worldwide via our Internet webcast. It also operates an online sister station serving both the URI community and the entire world via an Internet webcast.

WRIU is completely non-commercial, and receives all of its funding from three sources: the students of the University of Rhode Island, revenue earned from underwriting and, most importantly, through the support of its listeners during our annual fundraiser.

Being a non-commercial station allows WRIU the freedom to provide listeners with programming that is unlikely to find a home on stations that must rely on advertising revenue. This results in some of the most varied and exciting programming on your radio dial! Our program hosts are some of the most knowledgeable people in their specialties and week after week they bring you the newest and greatest music from around the globe.

WRIU-FM has been broadcasting for almost fifty years (and even longer as an AM station). The modern block format has been in place, more or less the same, for almost thirty years. Weekday programming is divided among the five major music departments (Jazz, Classical, Hip Hop, Folk and Rock) along with a mid-day student freeform slot offering a variety of styles throughout the week. Weekends are devoted to a wide range of specialty programming. In addition to this, WRIU is your home for URI athletics and other campus and local events.

RIU2, our student-centric online sister station, is the modern descendent of the original Rhode Island State College Network, established in the 1930's that evolved into WRIU. What is now RIU2 has operated via a variety of transmission methods over the course of those many decades, existing as an AM broadcast station, a closed-circuit transmission, a cable radio station on the URI campus cable system and now as an Internet webcast. In all of its incarnations, RIU2 has served to give URI students their first taste of broadcasting. Recently, RIU2 has returned to its historical role as the leading broadcast source for a variety of URI athletic events, as well as a home for student-centric music and talk programming.
