growing notion of computers and technology that has made

its way into our everyday lives. As students who have graduated from college in the twenty-first century the idea of technology is no longer a foreign concept or a dream of the future, but rather a reality. There is no way to escape its grip

desktop computer is becoming a thing of the past. Everything is immediate, as the hne between a cell phone, an ipod and a computer is forever blurred, creating a world where everyone owns at least one of these devices and everyone expects an instantaneous response. We live in a time where anything can be done from a phone and the idea of a paper map and a house phone are both things of the past. All of this technology and access to information is a constant reminder of how far we have come as a society and how far we have yet to go. The possibilities are endless and as the new generation of college graduates we have the ability to push these possibilities to their hmits. The past is an example of what we can accomplish, but it is not a boundary. As the graduating class of 2011 you have an opportunity to test these limits, see how far you can go and what you can accomplish. It is time to take a risk, step forward, and no matter where you are headed it is time to see what possibilities lie ahead. The use of technology and the age that we have grown up in is a stepping stone to the future and now is our opportunity to contribute to this progress. The world is no longer a small place and these advances in technology have bridged gaps that were never thought possible. It has given us a globalized, international society that is ours to experience. The possibilities are infinite and it is our turn to explore them and see how far we can go. Wherever the future takes you, remember to push forward no matter the challenges and to take advantage of the opportunities awarded to us. To all of our fellow URI graduates in the class of 201 1, best of luck in the future no matter what your endeavors may be! in

Dooley

2011 academic year:

grateful for the opportunity to briefly convey my appreciation for all of you who made this past academic year such a successful one for the University of Rhode Island. The students, faculty, and staff of URI are what make our university a special place for learning and discovery. Yes, we are privileged to work together in a "small, beautiful place," but it is our "big thinkers," our "global thinkers," that truly distinguish the University of Rhode Island. URI is successful because the people here do more than "think" they put their ideas and vision into actions actions that make a difference. This book captures some of the energy, passion, and conviction that makes our community one truly worth celebrating and remembering. am

September Welcome Back

September signifies the start of a new school year with an influx of newly accepted students and the return of many old ones. September is the month when the student body returns as they try to get ready for another semester of work, classes and an incredible lack of sleep. Freshman try to take the first couple of days to acquaint themselves with the campus, while the upperclassmen meet up with old friends they haven't seen all summer. The week before classes begin in September is the time when First Night and Welcome Week are held for the freshman. This is the way that the URI community can welcome the incoming class as they meet new friends and learn about the many .organizations in existence here at URL The month of

The holiday season starts and students begin making their winter break plans as they finish off the last few weeks of classes before the grueling two weeks of final exams set in. Then they camp out in the library and in various other corners of the university studjring hard and counting down the hours until their last exam is over. After spending countless hours with their books they look forward to the weeks of precious

excitement of university life. You could

say that this is the second time that the school comes alive; even if it is in the dead of winter. There aren't many events in January except for a few basketball

games and a couple of speakers and events at the Hillel center. The main concern of most students is just to get back into the swing of things and find out what needs to get done. This year there was the unexpected event of a snow day on the 27th, during the very first week of school. The winners of the Memorial Union Seasonal Cheer Window Decorating Contest were announced

What

a

year!

During the 2010-2011 academic year, the Sigma Chi Delta colony of Sigma Chi has made great strides towards official recognition and instillation into the Sigma Chi Fraternity. Their alumni have finahzed plans for the new house to be built in Fraternity Circle. It will be three stories high and have 41 single rooms. The colony has had immense success with recruitment, having tripled their numbers this year. The colony has also been in active philanthropy, for the Gloria Gemma volunteering Breast Cancer Research Foundation, participating in Relay for Life and organizing an event called "Balloon-aSig." The brothers are also involved in other activities including: Resident Orientation Advisors, Leaders, Volunteer Firefighters, Tour Guiding, URI 101 Mentoring, Intramural sports, and various jobs on campus.

Times to Remember

Alpha Delta Pi

unknowing eye Alpha Delta Pi may seem like just another sorority house full of girls, but from the inside Alpha Delta Pi is so much more than that. Alpha Delta Pi is a sisterhood where unforgettable friendships and memories are made. In Alpha Delta Pi you can find a friend to laugh with, a shoulder to cry on, a family to share everjrthing with, and a sisterhood to feel at home with. Every sister of Alpha Delta Pi brings something different and great to our sisterhood. Our sisters are in student involved organizations, To the

volunteer

programs,

academic

organizations, and of course our philanthropy The Ronald McDonald House. Alpha Delta Pi's motto is "We Live for Each Other", this is not just a saying however, it's the way we live.

About the Event

Oozeball is the sloppy, muddy, messy way for students to relieve some stress around finals. It requires teamwork, athleticism and the ability to play

volleyball the

in the mud. The messier it

is,

fun the students have! An

annual event held by the Student Alumni

Association, this year's event consisted of 192 teams competing in the single elimination volleyball tournament. Students were excited to get down and dirty for the 21st consecutive year of this famous event.

There are many people with a myriad of skills who come together each year to make this publication a reality and the staff would like to thank those people who played a key role in the production of this edition of the Renaissance Yearbook. It was an exceptionally rough year but through strength and perseverance we once again finished with a fantastic publication encompassing I would hke to thank the staff members for all of their hard work, all that URI has to offer. contributions and endless dedication that made the pubhcation of this book possible. Thank you for stepping up, taking charge and helping me out during those hard, stressful days throughout the year. Congratulations on a job well done, you should all be very proud of yourselves. The Yearbook Staff has many different facets that allow us to create a fantastic publication each year, as we are forever changing our ideas and approaches to documenting life here at URI. As I leave the Editor-in-Chief position this year I am excited to see some new and enthusiastic staff members take over the thrilling, and yes, even daunting role of Co-Editors-in-Chief next year. The URI community cannot wait to see your new ideas and endless possibilities for the documentation of the URI way of life. I know that you will do a fantastic job and will put the yearbook on track for A yearbook, like

It has been two years full of many enjoyable, unforgettable memories surrounded by plenty of equally stressful ones. All of the long hours in the office and an innumerable number of hours spent

organizing events, planning the book and its designs, editing pages, advertising our organization and managing the staff have led to an exciting two years as Editor-in-Chief. Thank you to my friends, family and fellow staff members who have dealt with me along the way. I know that it was not easy but your help and support is what has made everything possible over the years and I am forever grateful. Along with the workings of the Renaissance Yearbook that make this publication possible it would k not be a URI Yearbook without all of the components of URI life. Everyone on this campus who has contributed to the community many of us call home is a part of this life, including the new graduates who will leave their legacy behind. The Renaissance Staff would like to congratulate the graduating class of 20 11 on their achievements and wish them the best of luck in the future. You finally made it! Pursue your dreams but never forget the people who helped you get there. Thank you to everyone for such an amazing year and for making this I edition of the yearbook a success.
