The school year began September 3, 2002. As always, most of you were not quite ready for the transition from

summer

amusement into autumn

Many a nervous freshman could be seen wandering around the quad, desperately searching

academics.

December the first time the Friars had come to URI 21 years. The PRO-FM "Jingle

Mingle" brought Jessica

Simpson, the Barenaked Ladies, and Maroon 5 to the Ryan Center during finals week. Before you knew ft, Winter Break had arrived. Although abbreviated this yean it was still

January brought students back to a frigid welcome, with temperatures so low that classes were cancelled.

Seniors

started their final semester at URI, while freshmen

breathed a sigh of relief upon completing their first. A now infamous Super Bowl stunt started the month of February, when Justin Timberlake

ripped a portion of Janet

Jackson s ensemble, exposing her breast. All the campus filled the union on Valentines Day in the

annual

began the countdown to graduation. SEC held the annual Spring Fest, and the Union Board its famous Block Party. Mr Belding dropped by, as well as Michelle Branch, Less than Jake, and Yellowcard. The Rainville Awards Banquet acknowledged some of our dedicated and successful students. Greek Week was fun for those involved, and

bewildering for those who weren't. The 6^^ annual Hempfest demonstrated the urgency of drug policy reform and drew a record size crowd to the quad. May 6

Qjening


began with a URI favorite tradition, Oozeball. Playing in the mud was much better than studying for finals on a sunny day. After finals, underclassmen departed while seniors stuck around to enjoy their last days at URI. On May 22'^ the seniors said farewell with tears on

their eyes and smiles

their faces at the 118^^ Commencement

Exercises. Seniors recollected four years of laughter and tears while waiting for their diplomas. The Renaissance

Yearbook staff hopes they will recollect those same memories and many others as they thumb through the pages of this book, the 102"'^ edition of the Renaissance

Yearbook.

March pof Wo^w'S Uivsj


Among an estimated 1 .2 milUon people, 1 00 University fo Rhode Island students participated in Sunday's March for Women's Lives in Washington D.C. to support women s reproductive rights, with a focus on the right to choose to have an abortion. The student organization Pro moting Awareness ofGender Equality (PAGE) planned the trip. "It was just incredible to see so many people," said Heather Kumer, president of the group. "It was definitely a climax in my life," '

Kumer said. "It made

me

realize that I am

not alone." The crowd marched with

signs reading "Against Abortion? Don't Have One," "Women' s Health Not Corporate Wealth," "Bush out of my Bush" and "My Body is not Public Property." One sign said, "77 percent of anti-abortion leaders are men.

1 00 percent ofthem will never

be pregnant." Ryan

Freebem, 24, of

Kingston, was among the minority ofmen at the march. "I believe that women

'

s '

rights have come a long way, that there s still a long way to go. I feel that women should have the right to choose," he said. URI senior Sarah Freebem agreed. "Right now

it seems more critical because ofthe

With the stars

aligned on Saturday and every oddity occurring on University of Rhode Island men's basketball team pulled a 180-degree turn at a crucial point in its early season, upsetting Providence College, 89-79. The Friars (3-1) made their first trip to Kingston in 3 1 years in the middle of a blizzard, but it didn't deter a crowd of 7,657 from trekking through the snow. And as if the setting wasn't strange enough, URI assaulted PC with a barrage of three-pointers, far from the Rams' strong point. In fact, the Rams (5-2) had only made 15 shots from behind the arc in 80 attempts this year, struggling terribly in recent contests at Syracuse and Brown. They re sponded though in their first home game in two weeks with 10 threes in 14 attempts, a school-record 71 percent. Rhody guard Dustin Hellenga (26 points, six assists, five rebounds and four steals), who had made just 3 of 20 three pointers in the last two games, hit 5 of 9 on Saturday, including a bomb from near half court with the shot clock running down. The shot sparked an 11 3 URI run that broke the game open in the second half. "They know what they did. They know the stats. They hear it from people," URI coach Jim Baron said of his players past deficien cies. "[But] you have to take shots to make them. We stepped up and made them. That rim looked really wide. I kept saying to my assistant, 'Is this the same team that played against Syracuse and Brown.'" "They made the key shots from the perimeter, from downtown against our zone," Friar coach Tim Welsh said. "When that happens it becomes very hard to contain a team with all those athletes. Their weakness became strength today." PC held a58-57 lead after a pair of free throws from Rob Sanders (13 points, four rebounds and five assists) with 10:17 left. The Rams couldn't get a good look on the following possession and cue, the bizzaro

The Rams totaled 33 tumovers and 20 assists against those two 2-3 zones, but were finally able to distribute the ball on Saturday. URI had 21 assists in the game compared to just 12 turnovers. Point guard Dawan Robinson most notably increased his care of the ball, adding six assists and only two turnovers after having 26 in the first six games.

However, through hard work and leadership, particulariy from the senior class, the team earned a trip back to the Atlantic-IO Toumament, as well as a reputation for playing a good brand of soccer and boasting some very talented players.

URI faced

Even though the Rams did not get the opportunity to host the A-IO championships, there was a sense of achieve ment for the program The program integrated 8 new players into the program and the team responded well. Twothirds of the

starting lineup was completely different from last year including the pivotal setter position.

Six of the

players were true freshmen that had never played collegiate volleyball and several players had injuries that they practice everyday. Wth these challenges, each weekend through the end of the season the squad played better vollajball than the last Bob Schneck stated 'I feel that this was one of our strongest jobs of coaching in all of my years here at URI".

tough final weekend at Xavier and Dayton Xavier won several tough matches and needed a win against URI to stay alive for the A-IO championship. After splitting the first 2 games, the Rams fell to Xavier in 4 very dose games. Now with URI needing to win at Dayton to stay alive, sheer determination helped the Rams raise tha'r level of play. The Rams controlled game I and won 30-26. The Rams started game 2 with flawless volleyball and held the flyers at bay untn the last third of the game. With URI up 21-16. the conference champion flyers strung together several blocks and took the momentum from the Rams. After fighting hard, the Rams fell in game 2. 3026. Dayton took the last 2 games with the most potent offense in the conference finally clicking. It was an extremely tough loss for the Rams, who were scheduled to host the A-IO Championships, as URI was eliminated from championship competition The Rams 7-7 conference record left them 5"^ overall. a

However, URI's low 3-point completion per centage allowed Syracuse to scrape by 69-65. The Rams returned to defeat Brown and face Providence College at home with the support of a sell out crowd, in the middle of a blizzard, no less. Following the philosophy of "Mot in our house." f^hody left no doubt as to who was the state champion, blowing past Providence 89-79. This achievement fueled five more wins in a row to total an impressive seven game winning streak.
