Overall Experience: It's the perfect fit for me

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't too horrible aside from the elevators breaking and the fire alarm going off but that's pretty typical for a college dorm. The dorms are really pricey but you don't have much of an option your freshman year. It's easy to meet people on your floor I made my closest friends on the floor of my dorm.

Greek Life: There's a lot of people who join sororities and fraternities but if you don't join it's not a big deal.

Overall Experience: My school is very unique because of all the things to do on campus. One really cool experience is a week long event called Humans vs. Zombies where students are either assigned as humans or zombies and try to hunt each other down on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The quality of courses are all depending on professors and students' preference of teaching method. It can be easy because you can be open-minded to adapt to their teaching method or that you get helps from professors or friends to get through. The courses can be difficult some other days on certain topics, but you will never be alone. Other suffer the same as you. The class size vary but in big room that is very comfortable to watch lectures. The workload can be vary depending on students' priorities and how much a professor's expectation can give.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If a student has motivation or passion to pursue their major into job or internship opportunities, the opportunities will come. Hard-work comes first, opportunities comes last. If you have struggles, you will get a lot kinds of helps, but all it depends on a student's effort.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: So far, I never see any possible crimes on campus that hurt other students' safety except smoking area. But it's not big deal because they are in 20 feet away from the building. Personal safety are so GREAT as long as you don't make trouble or help others who need help. Because of it, the crimes are unlikely. There are a lot of reports proving that students do pay attention and care of others' safety because it can happen to them anytime. Good karma.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: 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.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: All events Greek participate involves are affecting students' life. Volunteering, fund-raising, etc make them to have great recognized. Breast Cancer, No racism, Fun (to make most of students as possible come to the events to enjoy the day by providing water games, jumping games, archery games, etc) and education programs.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Like I said about RIT, there are great diversity students on and out campus, there always have people who don't take interest, but take the events that are sided with others. There are student involvements, fan support, school spirit, but its all depend on students. Time, workload, work, jobs, different interests, etc make RIT very unique because students interact and see different people at once at the same time in a place. To me, it helps me to increase the confidence to participate in events. No fun if you go alone!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at school so far for few years at RIT went so AWESOME and have great learning experience after meeting different people with different programs, interests, and culture in a place. There are a lot of places to meet despite of being different. I have several friends I found to be unique at first but they turn out to be cool.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some classes are significantly harder here than other schools. At the end of the day, a lot of people switch to easier majors or drop out. Professors are nice and helpful if you ask, but they have high expectations.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I got a hardware engineering co-op after my first year. This is probably the best place on Earth to get a job if you put in a little extra work out side of class and pursue your interests. I am in no way worried about finding an awesome job.

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?
