RIT Favorites

Working at a fast-paced cutting-edge comprehensive university is exciting. I learn something new everyday.
Sitting on one of our many benchses along the quarter mile in-between classes. It is a thrill to watch the student body pass by knowing that I helped bring them here. Plus I love that you can not stereotype our students. RIT attracts all kinds of peopl
Our diversity, and I mean diversity in every sense. There is no other university like RIT.
