What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love RIT. I knew from the first visit that I had that I would go there. All the Professors are very polite and helpful. They will help you with anything if you need to just talk or need help with your work they will be there for you. the class size is perfect for me. The Athletic Building is great I normally will go 3-4 times a week to go to the pool to swim for an hour. One of the things that I love is that RIT gets the walkways and roads on campus cleaned up really great in the wintertime before classes start so you are not walking in the snow. The only thing that I wish is that the advisors were trained better I have had a little bit of a hard time with my advisor with my classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

RIT is a great institution for academics, my professors are always willing to help if you show you want to help yourself as well. There is a very wide variety of clubs and activities on campus, so there is definitely something for everyone. There is also great support for minority groups, like women in engineering.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

RIT's academics and co-op program are undoubtedly its main draws. The campus offers plenty of clubs and activities (though I frankly am not one to participate in many of them). RIT lets people be themselves (for better or worse, to be honest). It's not perfect and there are plenty of things people dislike, but they rarely detract from the overall positive experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a fine enough school. But if you are searching for a school with a rich social life, this may not be the best for you. I think that the academics are amazing for anyone who is going into engineering, biology, chemistry or other STEM fields, as long as you don't mind there not being a lot of overly social people around you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's really great for all the people in the world, even for international people, but NTID (National Institue for the Deaf) is for deaf or hard-of-hearing students only. It is only available at the Rochester Institute of Technology. However, I wish they had more majors such as animal science and pre-vet classes, also some zoology as well for students who wish to go to a vet school after graduation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved RIT. I was there for my bachelor and master's degree in Communication. The COM department is wonderful with great professors that I keep in touch with to this day. My former chair and mentor even came to my wedding. It was a great experience and wonderful education. I would definitely go back if I could do it all over again. I loved my college days.

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.
