2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: housing lottery system sucks. too few options, all are too expensive. i almost plummeted down to my death in the sol elevators a few times.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: as a non-greek, i'm pretty indifferent to it all. but tke is garbage.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: they had medical illustration which is great because niche doesn't even list it as an actual major

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've walked around alone, at night, on crutches, in the darkest part of campus and felt perfectly safe. As a criminal justice minor, we review on-campus crime and it is significantly less than every other school we've evaluated. I trust campus safety entirely and feel safer at RIT than I do at home.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors actually care and will go out of their way to make sure you succeed. I learned things as a second year student most people won't learn until graduate school. My largest class has been 35 people and I'm only in classes with people in my major- not calc classes with 200+ people or giant orgo lectures. All of the professors for my major know me by name and can hook you up with research and internships all across RIT and in businesses around the world. Worried you'll be stuck in a computer-geek hellhole? RIT has the most amazing art programs for glass blowing, photography, film- nerd is a lot more diverse than one would think.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't even graduated yet and I've gotten amazing full-time job offers. Apple, SpaceX, Google, Johnson&Johnson, and tons of other amazing companies are at RIT all the time recruiting, drawn here because of the co-op program and our high research and class levels. People are seriously impressed when I tell them I go to RIT.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Admissions lets too many people in and so theres not enough housing. Temporary housing built in the 70s is still standing, and the only housing expansions being made are the most expensive one. The off-campus non RIT student apartments take advantage of desperate students shafted by housing assignments. It needs a lot of work.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life here is different than at other schools. They do more community service and campus-wide social events than host parties and such, but they're good, normal people.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We're a tech school, not a sports school. that being said, our hockey team will kick your hockey team's butt and we have the best pep band in the land. I swear I'm not a brochure.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school changed my life. The faculty is amazing, and it focuses more on your success than your grades. Students work together rather then clawing to be the best, and the emphasis is placed on real-life applications rather and career preparedness. You want to be happy, well-respected, knowledgeable, successful, and have the most amazing and rewarding college experience? Go to RIT.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I see people helping other students when needed and there are always campus safety going around campus to keep an eye on the students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many of the professors do everything they can to help you. They even meet in their off hours to try to help you finish a project or to even talk about how you can improve.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the rooms seem over priced for the amount of space given in the apartments.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I never personally tried to get into a sorority but I have heard people saying they are difficult to get in to.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are many options open for students who have different physical abilities.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A lot of people here are willing to lend a hand and listen to help you succeed.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have quality campus security that is always there if you need help

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the professors are passionate about their teachings so it makes class interesting.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: With the co-op program we have here on campus, it gives us an advantage when entering the workforce.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I unfortunately did not receive housing for next year so I had to look for an apartment off campus which isn't all that bad but it would've been nice to actually have an option to stay on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not really involved in Greek Life but looking from afar, the Greek Life tries to help out the community.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The biggest sport here at RIT is hockey and it gets crazy at hockey games. It's interesting to see so many "nerds" cheering on our hockey team but I love it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are lots of options here to choose from. There are great people to work with and most of the professors are passionate about what they are teaching which makes it fun to learn.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Professors just need to hire more new professors on this campus. Overall of curriculum, registration process, workload, study options, and other area are all great to make students have options what they can do the best for anything.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Depend on parties where are on campus which are just okay. Outside of parties have some great club and friend's birthday place. However, I am not really knowledge of parties how it goes good or bad because I am not kind of party person.

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?
