Accepted Student Open House- Perfect for students who have been accepted to RIT but are still making their final decision on where to attend in the fall.  Explore campus, meet with a faculty representative from your prospective program, and get all your last-minute questions answered.  It’s also great for students who have already decided to attend RIT and can’t wait to join our community!

Spring Preview Day- A great way to kick off your college-search experience!  Check out all the College of Liberal Arts has to offer its students such as clubs, events, research, co-op & internship opportunities, and study-abroad options.  You will have the opportunity to speak with some of our faculty and current students, as well as get a feel for which programs interest you most.  You can also visit with other RIT colleges that have programs that pique your interest.

College & Careers- College & Careers is a two day career conference offered each summer designed to help students, who will be entering their senior year in the fall, gain the experience and knowledge necessary to start making career decisions.  There’s also a separate program for parents which provides information about the college search process, financial aid, and more.  Students get to spend the night in the dorms and “test run” up to four subjects through our interactive academic sessions, as well as partake in various campus social activities and entertainment.
