Students

Overview

The School of Communication includes about 150 undergraduates enrolled in its three B.S. degree programs.  Communication students are a dynamic and creative group, engaged in a variety of activities on- and off-campus.  For example, they write for RIT’s award-winning student magazine, Reporter; are anchors, reporters, producers, and post-production managers for RIT’s acclaimed cable television program, RIT SportsZone; and write for the local media, including the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, CITY Newspaper, and the Messenger Post Newspapers. 

Here’s a sampling of comments from a 2012 survey of alumni writing of their experience in the School (then Department) of Communication:

I always appreciated the "family" feel of the DOC. I always felt as if the faculty cared about the students as individuals and were genuinely interested in seeing us succeed. 
 
I loved RIT and the whole DOC faculty and staff! Amazing professors who pushed me to want to succeed. I would recommend the program to anyone. I had a great experience there

I greatly enjoyed being a student in the DOC. Not only were the classes interesting and relevant, but the faculty and staff provided a welcoming and intellectually stimulating environment.

The DOC is an example of what makes RIT so great. What a wonderful group of people who are all so student-focused!
