Though Rhode Island is just 37 miles wide and 48 miles long, students have a variety of different higher education options. Midsize universities, small private colleges, a prestigious art school and an Ivy League institution are located in Rhode Island. Many top Rhode Island colleges are in Providence, the state capital and third-largest city in the New England region.
