Your blog is really helpful for me as it describe the thing very simply and easy to understand for a new person in the market.
What I like to term as the ABC Guide to RIT
Attend as many classes as possible
Ben and Jerry's Ice-cream is the ideal treat on any day
Carry an umbrella or jacket at all times; weather can be unpredictable
Dorm life is the best ever
Eat healthy..keep in mind the freshman 15
Freshman year never comes back; live it to the fullest
Gracie's can be over-indulging
Hockey games..don't miss them!!!
Ingle auditorium for a movie on Thursdays
Java Wally's...ooooohhh I can smell the lovely coffee
Keep a check on your credit card expenses in general
Laundry machines are not hard to use...it helps if you practice at home
Marketplace Mall is a 10 minute bus ride away
Notetaking can serve to be great motivation to go to class..you get paid!!!
Orientation week is not to be missed and spent sulking in your room due to homesickness
Procastination can prove to be bad at times
Quiznos should not become your staple diet...explore the other options too
Rock climbing on campus at the Red Barn..now ain't that cool
Student Life Center has something for everyone...check it out
Time-management is essential
Understand that "no" is an equally right answer...no peer pressure
Very helpful and friendly faculty
Work is not hard to find on campus at all
Xplore the campus on your own as much as possible, one tour is never enough
You can reach great heights here, as they say the sky is truly the limit
Zeal and enthusiasm is all you really need to move forward
While some of the things I have mentioned are inherent attractions of RIT, many other things are general tips and pointers for successful college experiences at any campus. Some of them are from my own personal experiences while many others stem from experiences of close friends and things I observe in general around me. I sincerely hope that gives some insight into college life for everyone of you as you begin your application process.
