The social life is...okay. Honestly though, you should come to college for an education and the social life should be a perk. That being said, there are parties every weekend or so (but you probably don't want to walk to parties in January anyway) and the school claims to be working on alternate social activities for weekend nights, other than the $2 movies at Hoyt (which are great!). You can definitely find something to do, and the school is small enough that you'll develop a close knit group pretty quickly.
Overall, U of R is a pretty good school. Don't expect perfect; you're not going to find that anywhere. Make the most of your time here, and you'll enjoy it.
