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.

As a Deaf academic-oriented HS graduate, I find Rochester Institute of Technology very advancing, and wealthy of opportunities way beyond my expectation. I am excited to start there this fall and continue expanding my knowledge, experience and ream the benefits as best as possible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is a large group of people. At first I was worried about being able to find people who have similar interests to me. A large population of RIT is know for being "nerdy". Interest in video games is high- as well as computer science and coding stuff. Meanwhile, in a group of 18,000 students, it would be impossible not to find someone who feels the same way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have enjoyed being at RIT. The campus culture is nerdy, but there are people who are not nerdy on campus as well. The campus is isolated from Rochester, which is good and bad. The food is decent (RITz, Salsa's, and Crossroads are my favorites). Academically, I feel like most of the teachers are there for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school. Currently I am going here as a student athlete. Facilities for athletics and academics are outstanding. Dorm side can be sucky at times but overall I love the school. Can get cold for long periods of time but doesn't really bother me. Love RIT.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am going into my sophomore year at Rochester Institute of Technology, and I am pleased with my experiences so far. I have stayed with my major that I applied for and am very happy - but I have many friends who have made easy transitions into different majors. Professors here care and there are more than enough resources if you need help. I also love that there are so many events, activities and clubs to do all the time around campus. We receive emails, there are posters, and the club fair that promotes students to stay active and stay busy. But the main reason I came is because of the co-op opportunities, which basically guarantees a job after graduation. The only things I have to complain about is the quality of the food (at least as a first year student) which really isn't too bad, and the cost to come here. But overall, I am very happy and am excited for the years to come. Go tigers!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed my time at RIT - it provided me with an excellent foundation for transitioning on to graduate study. I think the part of RIT I hold the closest to my heart is the embodiment of acceptance. You will find every type of person at RIT and there is such a refreshing willingness to promote and learn about different walks of life. Beyond the classroom, I learned so much about life itself and I have RIT to thank for that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rochester Institute of Technology is a great school to go to if you love hockey and getting a great education. The main issue with this college however, is that when you are a freshman, you are required to get a mealplan that includes going to Gracies as a part of it. While it is an all you can eat, the food can be pretty subpar, unless there is an event going on. After freshman year though, you can much more flexibility in your mealplans (though if you live in dorms, you are required to have one). Oh, and one last thing, the microwaves come with a built in smoke detector, and are falsely triggered by cooking food, causing causing the microwave to refuse to work. Most people i've met could only get it to work for a solid 1:30 straight before it shut off.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am in my second semester at RIT, and I enjoy it so far. All in all, I think it's a fine school. The school's biggest draw was its co-op program. It varies from major to major, but for Game Design, at least, I would be required to do two paid internships in order to even graduate, so I'd be guaranteed some industry experience, and I'd be making money out of it. I still have a lot to get through, but if the rest of my time at RIT is like what I've spent so far, I think I'll like it a lot.
