Michael Smith

​Greetings from the Rhode Island College Alumni Association!

Thank you for visiting our official Rhode Island College Alumni Association web pages. As president of the Rhode Island College Alumni Association, I value your feedback about the RIC Alumni Association and appreciate your suggestions on ways to ensure future growth.

Since its founding as an institution of higher education in 1854 more than 62,000 alumni have graduated from RIC. Every year, the Alumni Association welcomes new members into our network. We encourage you to become involved with your Alumni Association today. Take advantage of the many events and programs that Rhode Island College has to offer.

Most important, keep us informed about your life changes and submit a class note today. We will publish your information through our various media channels and our alumni magazine. Keeping in touch with alumni here at RIC is our number one priority!
