Rochester Institute of Technology Reviews
Speaking of RIT, I have an excellent experience because it gives me an opportunity, and I felt like it is my second home. I have been improving my skills include knowledge, leadership skill, more confidence for a future job. Also, I meet diversity students from the different culture, which is I have learned a lot. That makes me more motivation to travel and get more network. I do CHERISH every minute in RIT and what I have now!
I absolutely love RIT! I transferred in last semester after receiving my Associate degree at a community college. They had a great orientation program and a separate one for the transfers. There are so many great employment opportunities, co-ops, and internships. The deaf community on campus is great and its really cool how the deaf and hearing integrate on campus and interact with one another. Also, greek life on campus is very different from other schools (the only reason why i considered and actually did join a sorority) Everyone is very academically focused because RIT is such a nerdy tech school. The only thing that i hate is its FREAZING (and i'm from New England, i know cold). Currently there its 9 degrees and the winter just barely started. If you're thinking about going there, dress warm.
Dorm can be little expensive since it's on campus and that it's close to classes than apartments, however it helps a lot if you pull nighter often due to studying or chatting with friends to catchup. The social atmosphere is great that you can meet people right there especially if they live same floor in dorm as you! The cost of RIT can be annoying because it's private university, but it's all worthy (depending on students. Some think it's too hard to attend classes, homesick out of state, etc). The housing process is little complex if you're not assigned yet before school starts, but once you're assigned, it's more likely you will be at dorm unless you apply for apartment. About apartments, there are more than 5 different apartments with different needs and costs but all are in close range with RIT that some students take biking or skateboard to arrive at RIT.
