1854-2004: 150 Years and Still Growing!

Scrapbook of Archive PhotosRhode Island College is the oldest public institution of higher learning in the state, with a tradition of academic excellence that spans 150 years. On May 9, 2003, the College began a year-long observance of its Sesquicentennial. On these pages we pay tribute to the College and its over 47,000 alumni with features on the grand history of the institution as well as information on the many academic and celebratory events planned throughout the year. Adopted as the symbol of the Sesquicentennial is the stately oak tree overlooking the main entrance of the College on Mount Pleasant Avenue. The great oak represents the historic roots of the College, the growth of knowledge, and the success of our graduates who branch out across the state, the nation, and the world.
