Rochester Institute of Technology Reviews
This must be both an exciting and stressful time in your life. I understand; I get it, I was there. So, let me shed some light about RIT.
RIT, in my own opinion, is a great school! The thing that I loved most about RIT is the academic rigor. You will be challenged in your classes to go above and beyond normal expectations. You are expected to be actively participating in the class; actively self-reflecting on your material and giving the extra effort to demonstrate the mastery of your craft. There are many opportunities such the CO-OP program, research opportunities and teaching opportunities to obtain real-world experience in your desired filed. If you choose RIT, I have a strong feeling that RIT will satisfy your expectations.
On the flip side, you must understand the culture of RIT. RIT is a place full of bookworms. Bookworms meaning over-achieving academic scholars. With this said, a good portion of RIT students are not social butterflies.
