3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I didn't do this unless my parent took me out.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I followed the rules and minded my own business

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I like being near friends and clubs. The dorms are in good condition and spacious to live in. The shared bathrooms are nice and reguarly clean.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus and being deaf it is better.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was a hassle because I applied late but the financial aid office people were nice and helpful. I did not get that much because I applied so late.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I only ate close to the dorms.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in the Sol dorm which has 9 floors and no air conditioning. The elevators are small and it take a while to get up and down. Windows are small so air is limited. Good news is it is in upstate New York so it gets colder sooner.

Lots of things to do and people are great!

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I just lived on campus or a campus apartment just for convenience. too much of a hassle because off campus housing is usually too far

2 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Eh Never really my thing but even when I go its nothing exciting

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: I would like to see more unique resturauts not just chain resturauts. healthier options too

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: I felt safe there, and knew that nothing crazy wouldnt happen that threatens my safty because of the security. They can take it easy on the parking though. A lot of parking issues

Recent Alumnus

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: I would improve on the quality of the food, and bring in more healthier options, but Im glad to see that RIT is improving on that.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's hard to find places nearby that allow pets and have bus transportation while also being within my price limit.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I don't party, so that doesn't interest me. I'm sure it's fine.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's the usual spots to eat then the unique and new ones. Cost is normal depending on the place, along with variety and convnience.

5 College Junior

Administration: If you're above the drinking age and are smart enough to not do drugs and to follow the rules, you're golden.

3 College Junior

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Many choices for every person. Very clean and unique setting.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depending on the college you attend, on campus living can be quite nice. It has easy access to classes which is nice compared to commuting in bad weather. Making friends is important. Talking to neighbors can help build life long relationships. The college I attended had an extremely easy housing process. You just show up in a room and they ask what building you'd like to be living in the following year and then they check the availability. If there are any free spots, your name is put down and a week later, you're registered. Easy.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Have never needed to find off campus housing.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Haven't had a chance to try local places, only chains

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Ratio of guys to girls is too high to have a pleasant experience. When there are a bunch of sweaty dudes and 2 girls max, it's hard to enjoy yourself. Joining a club, and attending parties thrown by the club is the best way to party.

College Freshman

Administration: Have not had any experience with campus strictness

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not very many good places to eat dormside

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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?
