When pursuing a degree in today's world, student athletes have many different options to choose from. College Factual was founded, in part, to help students make the decision as to what would be the best school for them. Our Best Colleges for Division III Women's Basketball in Rhode Island ranking is part of that endeavor.

We analyzed 4 colleges and universities across Rhode Island to determine which were the best for D3 Women's Basketball athletes in Rhode Island. Our ranking is based on several objective factors, including the school's overall quality and the athletic competitiveness of the school. We steer clear of subjective measures since they don't give a clear picture when determining how one school compares to another. So, even if a school has a great team, it won't place well if it is also considered a low quality college or university.
