What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely adore Rochester Institute of Technology. It was my first choice school and I'm so very happy to have been accepted. I'm absolutely loving being a software engineering major. I hope to be able to achieve the amount of money I'll need in order to continue attending. The atmosphere is lovely, the students are wonderful, and the academics are challenging in the best way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

RIT is not a super pretty campus unless you like looking at bricks. Even if you like bricks most of the buildings are simple brick boxes which is not very energetic. It is very windy here and walking from from freshman dorms down the quarter mile in the winter can be serious health hazard if any skin is exposed. Seasonal depression is a real thing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you want to study computer science or any other type of technology, this is probably one of the best places. The Computing security program is getting a new building, and there are full-tuition scholarships if you want to go into computing security for the government. Campus food is campus food. Get the 10 meal plan. You have plenty of options, but Gracies isn't the best dining hall in the world. Gen ed lectures will usually be large, especially for the science lectures but the labs are small. There is a large population of deaf and hard-of-hearing people on campus because RIT is home to the national technical institute for the deaf, so be prepared to learn a little ASL. There are a lot of options for on-campus involvement, so you should be able to find something you like. Some housing options still don't have air conditioning so make sure you check what residence hall you're living in and plan to have a fan or two if you don't have AC, but it cools off relatively quickly. All in all, RIT is on the better end of colleges, and you should be able to find something you enjoy on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

RIT was my top choice school when I was applying to colleges. The main thing I was looking for while searching for schools was a good program in animation because that’s what I was looking to study. I started off by looking at the Animation Careers list of top animation schools in the country, and RIT was on that list. After doing some more research on notable alumni and seeing examples of student work, I thought it would be a great school to check out. While I was most concerned with finding a college with a good animation program, I was also really interested in finding a school that would give me the opportunity to try my hand at several kinds of studies. RIT definitely makes it easy to take classes in things you are interested in outside your major. As a senior in high school, I liked the idea of having the option to change my mind as well. RIT has all kinds of major programs, so I knew that if animation wasn’t what I expected, then I could choose from a whole variety of other programs. I felt like I would be limited in my choices in art schools, so this is part of the reason I chose RIT.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an amazing school. I love technology and the arts, and this school has the perfect blend. Whatever you are interested in, people are supportive and eager to help you reach your goal. People are very welcoming here, more so than I noticed when touring other schools. Although it’s not the prettiest campus or in the best location (winters get pretty cold), it is an amazing and united location. Even though it is a large school, the individualized colleges make class sizes very personable (my major has classes of as low as 15 people). There is a surplus of clubs, Greek life, sports, and organizations to get involved with. There are also many charitable events throughout the year such as blood drives and Relay For Life. The enthusiasm of students towards these is amazing! Not to mention there are many events throughout the year such as Freeze Fest, Spring Fest, intense hockey games, Brick Hack, and more that give out lots of free swag. There are so many opportunities here, especially with the co-op program that allows you to take a break from school to get real world work experience in your field (and get paid!). RIT truly helps you make you goals a reality in the most supportive, fun way possible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion on Rochester Institute of Technology, or RIT, is that they have good communities that people are aware of it like Deaf community and LGBTQ community. I love deaf community because I am deaf and it nice to be able to talk someone else in the community.

The school has an abundance of majors, minors, and immersions to choose from as well as extracurricular activities. The campus is large and lively with a diverse crowd of students and the professors are mostly very accommodating.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a pretty great school with a very friendly community and good professors. Honestly, it is a bit expensive for me but that's why I try to earn scholarships like this one. However, if you can get over that, I am positive that anyone could have a great time at RIT. From it's multitude of academic opportunities to it's extracurricular activities, there is something here for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

RIT offers great academics and I've yet to run into a bad professor. Most are empathetic and well trained in their field. As a female from an urban background, I have found a hard time fitting into the more nerdy atmosphere of my major. However, it is completely true that every major has a completely different culture from one another and I am in GCCIS. The location and academics are great, but I still haven't found my niche in the student body.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is one of the top rated private technology school in the country and it shows with the rigorous academic standards. The professor's are very helpful and so is the rest of the staff.
