University of Rhode Island

Mediocre campus.

Decent art program.

Neat biodiversity focus, but small faculty compared to other schools. Of course, being on the ocean, it's mainly a marine biology place.

Cell/Molecular Bio department is better. One professor is studying signal transduction... make that two. The rest are either botanists or microbiologists.

Robust music department.

Small CS department (which mingles with statistics, besides). Lame website (never a good sign). The research there doesn't intrigue me: the 3D program is, frankly, lame.

...Overall: meh. If I were in the area, I would much rather be at U-Mass. If I were stuck here, I'd want to be in the art program.
