January 2014 Delta Says No to Phone Calls During Flights The jury is still out on the Federal Communications Commission's decision to lift the ban on allowing passengers to make phone calls during flights. According to a poll conducted by CNET, 80 percent of the 2,051 individuals who responded say no to the question "Do you want in‐flight cell phone calls?" It seems as though Delta has paid attention to responses like this to the recent news of the possible lift of the ban. In an official memo to Delta employees, CEO Richard Anderson said "Delta will not allow cellular calls or internet‐based voice communications on‐board Delta or Delta Connection flights." Anderson also mentioned their customer research and direct feedback from frequent flyers tells them allowing voice calls during flights would ruin travelers' flight experiences. Delta is a company on the progressive front when it comes to bettering the flying experience for its passengers. This notion is backed up by the company's quick response to the FAA allowing electronic devices to be used during all phases of flights (from gate to gate). Delta was the first airline to file their plan with the FAA.

The men’s basketball team had one of those truly special seasons that come along only once in a long time this past winter. The Anchormen took Rhode Island College, the City of Providence and the entire state of Rhode Island on a joyous ride that found the program at the doorstep of the NCAA Div. III Men’s Basketball Tournament Final Four. When it was all said and done, Head Coach Bob Walsh’s team finished the season with a 27-4 overall record and reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA tourney. Rhode Island College’s magical run came to an end in an 81-69 loss at Amherst on Mar. 10. Of the Anchormen’s four losses on the season, two came at the hands of the Lord Jeffs, who went on to win the NCAA Div. III National Championship a week later in Salem, Va. RIC established a new school record for wins in a season, surpassing the 1968-69 squad’s previous high mark by three. The Anchormen, who were making their first NCAA tourney appearance since 1979, advanced deeper into the fray than any other team in school history. The Murray Center was the site for first and second round action of the NCAAs, with RIC hosting Brandeis, Trinity, and Coast Guard on Mar. 2-3. The Anchormen opened up with a spirited, 64-60, win over Cinderella and NEWMAC champs Coast Guard in front of a raucous crowd on Mar. 2. Senior guard Kinsey Durgin scored a game-high 18 points, while sophomore guard Bobby Bailey posted a double-double with 16 points and 13 boards. The Anchormen held off Brandeis the next night, earning a 70-67 win. Despite leading by 18 points with 10 minutes left in the second half, RIC found itself with a mere two point advantage with nine seconds left.
The annual Fall Homecoming continues to be very successful, so successful that many people wished it happened a number of times throughout the year.

It will be a weekend full of activities directed at students, alumni, parents and anyone else who is part of the College family.

There will be an event hosted by Wileen Coyne ’55 in Boca Raton on Jan. 31 and another event hosted by Ennis Bisbano ’55 at the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club on Feb. 1. Additionally, if anyone cannot attend one of those events, but is interested in meeting with athletic or developmental staff, feel free to contact us at (401) 456-8007. For further details about “RIC on the Road”, visit the College website or contact the alumni office. RIC will also be on the road in Florida the week of Mar. 12 in the Orlando and Tampa area as our outstanding softball and baseball teams travel to the Sunshine State for Spring Training. RIC Celebrates 30 Years of Women’s Athletics 2006-07 marks the 30th anniversary of the beginning of women’s varsity intercollegiate athletics at Rhode Island College. 1976-77 was the first year women’s teams began participating in organized varsity athletics and the College will celebrate this milestone with a gala event this spring. This event will honor pioneers, teams and individual achievements of female student-athletes and coaches over the past three decades. If you have a nomination idea, please contact Art Pontarelli ’71 via telephone at: (401) 456-8863, or by e-mail: email@example.com.
The Rhode Island College Early Enrollment Program is a concurrent enrollment program that offers college credit at Rhode Island College to high school students for certain courses which they take at their respective high schools. The EEP provides the means for high school students to get a head start in college by obtaining college credits at Rhode Island College and transferring those credits to the institution that they attend. The EEP is also a formal program that fosters communication between high school teachers and college professors and creates an educational relationship between the high school and the college communities. For a detailed explanation of the Rhode Island College Early Enrollment Program, transferring of credits, and/or other important information, please call the EEP office at 456-8857 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. NACEP, the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships, of which Rhode Island College is a charter member, provides guidelines and standards to which concurrent enrollment programs must adhere to maintain membership. It is the adherence to these standards that maintains credibility and excellence among programs such as the EEP and will assure its students credit transfer among many colleges and universities in the United States. The primary purpose of this manual is to document formally the policies and guidelines which govern the workings of the Early Enrollment Program at Rhode Island College to provide a clear understanding for all parties involved.
This concentration prepares students for transfer to the Rhode Island College Computer Science program. Requirements allow students to earn an Associate in Science (A.S.) degree in Computer Programming at CCRI but also include courses required to meet requirements of the RIC Computer Science degree. Students paying full-time tuition at CCRI can take RIC courses for no additional cost. See page 27 regarding the inter-institutional agreement. Important: All students must obtain a grade of at least “C” in all computer course requirements and must maintain a 2.0 GPA. Note: Since RIC’s current registration policy does not allow for special consideration of CCRI students, each student is responsible for enrolling himself/herself during the RIC enrollment open period; since the RIC class size is limited, to avoid being shut out of a course, it is recommended that the students enroll in RIC courses as soon as enrollment opens; RIC courses are not usually offered in the evening or online. IMPORTANT — Many courses require: • Prerequisite: course must be completed successfully PRIOR to enrollment; • Corequisite: course must be taken at same time; • Testing: (ACCUPLACER or other placement test) helps determine course placement; See course descriptions at the back of the catalog for details. RECOMMENDED COURSE SEQUENCE : Course sequence and prerequisites for major courses are under review. See Computer Studies department faculty for guidance.

He posted a .286 career batting average with 43 runs, 61 hits, 33 RBI, 16 doubles, five home runs, 92 total bases, 33 walks and one stolen base. He recorded a .432 slugging percentage, a .382 on-base percentage and a .938 fielding percentage for his career.
