4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This would be the school for me. I think the education I've received will land me where I want to be career-wise, and that's what matters to me. The weather is horrible, but in 2 years I'll be done with it.

Majors: I have no idea how difficult it was to get in. I know every at my school had an excellent GPA through high school and had APs and extracurriculars.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is all right. They're all pretty geeky, and despite the glorification of nerdyness in today's media- it doesn't make anyone a better person.

Diversity: There are some international students, but not a lot. Mostly Indian students studying computer science. My best friend was a business student from Nigeria.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love my problem. I love the diversity of employment options it gives me. I love how dedicated officials at the school are to connection us.

5 College Junior

Majors: I haven't done an internship or co-op yet, but I know tons of people who have with excellent pay. There's also an awesome diversity of options available.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's okay. It's not Rochester's fault that it resides in a horrible arctic wasteland that no one wants to be stuck in.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Plenty of classes to find an interest in. And plenty of great professors to teach them.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Tons of opportunities for my degree and others at this school. Most people come to this school with a job-obsessed mentality. You have to be to graduate because almost all of us have required internships/co-ops.

2 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They kinda treat victims like criminals at times. Very obvious cynical view from some of the people working with the on-campus ambulance. They're kind of jerks, which is a little arrogant of them considering how many people who are actually hurting others are getting away with it.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The sexual violence problem used to be worse back when there were fewer females on campus. It's still bad enough though that I have several friends who have been victims of it due to disgusting drunken barbarians who should have been punished.

5 College Junior

Academics: Love my major, it was the reason to go.

4 College Junior

Academics: Classes are good. Some lame professors, but some fantastic ones too. The ones deep in your major will be amazing, then gen ed classes will be the luck of the draw.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't that much out there.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Some have mansions, some have dorms.

5 College Junior

Athletics: New ice rink will be fantastic, gym is awesome.

College Junior

Scholarships: My mother took care of it.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Parts of campus are gorgeous/excellent, others no.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's okay, but expensive and you aren't guaranteed.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: It's pretty good. Decent variety. Kind of expensive.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: There aren't many places to go on the weekend.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Its giving me a lot of experience in my college for whole my first year.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: its depending on what majors i am interesting.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: In Henrietta there are so many options, so close to the school. There is a nice mix of fast food and sit down restaurants and late night options.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

RIT does its best to provide students with a wealth of information, great facilities, top-notch academics, and a pretty good athletic program. Living in Rochester for four years teaches students a lot about who they are and what they want out of life (with the lack student-oriented activities, you'll have a lot of time to think). Many choose to drop out or transfer schools, due to the strenuous quarter system and the arduous work hours that come along with it. Many students who come to RIT on academic scholarships end up on academic probation. Many choose to do the drunken-college-student bit, and many choose the studious-bookworm role; but in the end, many students realize that classwork may not always be the most important thing. Most students here will, at one time or another, disagree with their roommates, RAs, bursars, registrars, and their departments. These are all facts of life, though. No two people can see eye to eye on everything.

In the end, four years and one degree later, many RIT students will tell you that they would willingly do it all over again. Every bad grade, every good party (or vice versa) helps students learn what they really want from life. As students move on to their graduate studies, they are mostly confident that what they have learned at RIT will help carry them through life, and most importantly, give them a competitive edge in the job market. I was told my freshman year that getting into RIT was the easy part, and that getting out was the hard part, which is very true. Well, students get out, and their degrees mean a lot to them. Not only is RIT a very competitive school where students do well, they actually learn a thing or two about life along the way. What more can you ask for from a university?
