Hi guys! This is my first blog ever so let me start by introducing myself. My name is Blenda Luong and I am a 2nd year in interior design but actually this is my third year at RIT. Sooo let me start at the beginning. I’m from a suburb in Rochester known as Pittsford, I’ve lived here my whole life and love it. Although I love Rochester I really didn’t want to go to a school too close to home..but being the homebody I am I decided to go to RIT. In all seriousness RIT had the perfect program for me. I came into this school in the Career Exploration Program which allowed me to take many different classes in many different fields so I can find the program that’s right for me. I took classes from business to psychology to general art classes and although I liked business and psychology I couldn’t see myself doing it for the rest of my life and knew that art and design was something I had a passion for. So I prepared my portfolio, had my interview with the head of the interior design department, and viola I’m in the perfect major for me. RIT really made it a smooth transition and easy for me to transfer my credits. If I were at any other college I wouldn’t have had this great opportunity and probably be stuck in business management or something boring like that (no offense to all those business majors, it just wasn’t for me! J) All in all I’m at the perfect place and I’m happy with my decision that I made. So if you have any questions at all about the Exploration Program or transferring departments or majors, Ask Me! I’ve been through it all.
