Back in the day when I was a prospective student
, one of the things I remember most is all the hype that came along with Imagine RIT
- our campus' innovation and creativity festival. My first time attending the event as a freshman was amazing!
The event is a chance for all students, faculty, and departments to showcase the work they've put their hearts into for the past academic year. To steal a quote from the webpage:
"Visitors experience the breadth and depth of RIT through interactive presentations, hands-on demonstrations, exhibitions, and research projects set up throughout campus. Inflatables, games and multiple performance stages..."Last year the event drew over 20,000 visitors
in just a single day, truly an amazing turnout.
For more info, check out the official webpage here
. The webpage has an awesome feature called "Plan your day" where you can make a customized itinerary of all the events you want to see, and where to find them. You can also subscribe to the Facebook page here
! Oh yeah, and Twitter: @imagine_rit
For all you accepted students, this is a fabulous way to get involved and see what RIT really has to offer. I encourage you to check it out, and maybe make a trip to Rochester in May to experience the magic firsthand. I hope to see ya there!
Feel free to give me a shout on Twitter! @RIT_Tanner
