Got to love RIT Breaks

Peter Dunning on Sunday, 10 January 2010. Posted in Academic Calendar, Residence Life, Student Life, Vacation / Break

So I had an amazing break.
I was able to relax, hang out with my family, sleep (EXCESSIVELY) and work a bunch.
Don't forget eating as well Smile
The bitter sweet part of this is as follows:
We only received two weeks for Winter Break....
That was good and bad.
It was bad because ALLL of my friends have longer breaks then I do (except the one's at RIT).
This was terrible, since I still get texts from friends to hang out and I have to tell them I'm in class.
On the other hand, it was good because I didn't forget everything.
That way I was able to get back into my studies and it helps me keep in the school schedule.
Still, I wish I had more time to spend with family and be home with old friends.
But that is what summer is for!!!!

    i dont think i would like having a longer break. the 18 or so days for winter break are enough for me to enjoy it but then i get a little bored and anxious to get back. i don't know how i could handle being home the entire month of january with nothing to do.

    It seems like things move really quickly on the quarter system. I'm starting mechanical engineering-aerospace option in the Fall. Any advice about to keep up with classes? I hear RIT is moving to semesters, but not until 2013!

    Yeah, the quarter system does move fast, so you just have to be task orientated and well organized and you will do fine. The professors here prepare you very well, but it is your job to keep up on the homeworks and studying. I would suggest getting a planner or calender in order to keep track off all your due dates and exams to know when to study. As long as you get to doing your work from the start you'll be fine, just don't slack;D
